With all the abundance and constant advertising of cosmetic products, women sometimes prefer to use old tried and tested products - such as classic children's cream. Home moisturizing creams and nourishing masks are made precisely on the basis of a baby cream that contains natural ingredients, and in composition and consistency is suitable for solving not only children's, but also some "adult" skin problems.
- According to experts, the baby cream removes the effects of airing and frostbite, dermatitis and allergic reactions. The same effective cream for children can be used as a nourishing cream for the skin around the eyes. A tender and softening skin in this area perfectly absorbs the baby cream, which reduces the amount and size of wrinkles.
However, children's cream from wrinkles around the eyes can not be used for long. Prolonged use is fraught with edema, dehydration, hypersensitivity.
And this is logical, because the skin of a child and an adult is significantly different. And, critically, we would not treat advertising, but, probably, it's not for nothing that dermatologists and cosmetologists of all countries constantly develop all sorts of recipes so that everyone can pick up individual cosmetics for himself. After all, there are no panacea for all cases of life, unfortunately.
Creams for wrinkles around the eyes after 25 years

Some cosmetics manufacturers indicate the shelf life of their products (Vichy, Willows Roshe) as a symbol of an open jar with numbers (12 M means 12 months). The rest are limited to the designation of the expiration date after the dissection, which ranges from 6 to 12 months.
