8 Best Under-Eye Wrinkle Treatments, Backed By Dermatologists – mindbodygreen

Retinol is another popular eye cream ingredient, similarly because of its ability to stimulate collagen production. However, as noted previously, the under-eye skin is a bit thinner, which means the retinol you use on this area should be gentler than the retinol you use on other portions of your face (or body). 

“[Retinol] should be used with caution by newcomers, as retinol has the potential to cause skin irritation, such as redness, dryness, and flaking,” double board-certified dermatologist Brendan Camp, M.D., explains. 

If you opt for a retinol-infused eye cream, make sure you take precautions and stop using it if too much irritation occurs. One pro tip: Apply a hydrating eye cream or face lotion before your retinol product to sandwich the active. This should mitigate some irritation.
