Collagen is a kind of protein that, among other things, is responsible for making skin smooth. It is common, however, for people to experience decreases in collagen as they age, leading to discoloration, wrinkles, and bags around the their eyes. This is why many people choose to purchase collagen creams that actually can increase collagen production and improve the look of skin around their eyes. To choose the best collagen for eyes, it is a good idea to educate yourself about the different creams and other products that are available. As you read magazine articles and informational websites about collagen for eyes, however, make sure that you are using objective sources that are not posted or sponsored by specific brands, since these sources are often covert advertisements.

For many people, the best way to find collagen for eyes is to ask health specialists. A dermatologist who specializes in helping you to maintain youthful, attractive skin might be the best choice, though any physician whom you trust might have valuable suggestions. If you do not have a medical specialist you can ask, then you should ask friends, neighbors, or coworkers. Keep in mind, however, that the best for them may not be the best for you.

It is common to find collagen treatments that are heavy in vitamin A. Vitamin E is another common ingredient. Exfoliation creams, which get rid of layers of dead skin, can also be helpful for improving the skin around your eyes. If you think you may have allergies to ingredients common in skin creams, check with a doctor and be sure to read labels. Inactive ingredients sometimes cause side effects that worsen the quality of your skin.

For most people, price is an important factor when choosing collagen for eyes. While it may not be too expensive to purchase a collagen product one time, most creams require continued use to get the best results. For example, paying $20 US Dollars (USD) for a jar of cream, which may not seem to be much of an investment. If you have to purchase this cream every month, you might find that it becomes a financial burden.

Some consumers choose to consider the environmental impact of using some collagen for eyes creams. For example, some environmentally friendly products might include ingredients that are natural as opposed to chemical solutions created in a laboratory. Consumer periodicals can include information about the cosmetic producers have the best environmental reputations.

This article was right in saying that the best thing you can do is to investigate the various collagen products before you decide to buy any. Overtime, they can be very expensive.

I heard a cosmetic expert talking on television. He said that most cosmetics have just about the same ingredients in them. So buying an expensive brand is not going to give you any better results than a cheaper one. Maybe that's true.

Anyway, I'm searching around and asking people what they would recommend for a collagen cream for the eyes. I'll try the creams for a while before I go for any injections.

Collagen products are a no-go for vegans and strict vegetarians, since they tend to be made from animal fats. There are other products out there, you just have to keep an eye on ingredients on labels.

I don't use collagen. I do use a cream, but it is filled with minerals and other ingredients, rather than collagen or other animal-derived products. I might consider collagen at some point, but for now it sounds complicated and honestly kind of creepy to me.

@Sara007 - I have tried the collage eye pads and to be honest, I wasn't too impressed with the results. If you really want something that works I would spring for a really good collagen face mask at your local spa. It may take more than one visit to see results, but you will get them. If you can't afford regular spa visits, you can also buy the masks in store, but they are pricey too.

I don't really know much about the collagen supplements, but I am not sure if they would really be able to target problem areas like your around your eyes.

Has anyone tried collagen eye pads or collagen supplements to make yourself appear younger? Did they really work at making your fine lines go away, or was it all hype?

I have been thinking about getting collagen injections to bring some fullness back to my face, but would first like to see if any other collagen products would work for me first. My friend had the collagen injections done, and her skin looked great afterward, but I am not sure if I am ready to put a needle in my face just yet.

I did try a collagen eye mask once, but I didn't really see any results, but I am willing to keep trying.
