What is the most effective ingredient to look for in eye creams and serums that will help improve the look of lines and wrinkles?

Dear Ms Nichols,

thank you for your question. You should look for retinol or retinaldehyde ingredients. They are related and have similar action and they both are modification of vitamin A chemical, and are widely used in cosmetics and have good track record - effective in improving skin lines and wrinkles.

I hope this is helpful.
