Stop wrinkles in their tracks with one of these products you can toss in your gym bag.
Barret Wertz 1 / 6
When you’re pushing to eek out that final rep, you're probably not thinking about your eyes. Specifically, you're most likely not considering how much all that squinting—and the repeated use of those eye muscles—is making your face look older while your body gets tighter.
Think about it: you repeat the same motion with your biceps to make them bigger. So, repeating the same motion with the most delicate skin on your body has to have some repercussion, right? Right. The good news is that there is something you can do to prevent the damage and preserve your youth. The best part is that all it takes is one of the easiest things to throw in your gym bag: a seriously powerful eye cream. Check out these five to find the one that's right for you. You can swipe it on right after your workout. (After you wash your face in the locker room, of course.)
Retinol has been shown to fend off and even reverse wrinkles. When used with an SPF, it's a game changer. Just be sure to add SPF if you choose to use it in the AM as it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
Hyaluronic Acid acts as a quick fix, so using this rich eye cream works for any skin type to help instantly plump and refresh. Over the long term, it helps maintain crucial moisture around the eye area.
