Caring for the Skin Around Your Eyes

Caring for the Skin Around Your Eyes

If your eyes are the window to your soul, you’re going to want to give them a little extra TLC. The area around your eyes is one of the thinnest, most sensitive areas of your body and is also among the first to reveal the very first signs of ageing. Why? Because the skin in this area doesn’t have as many oil glands and collagen as the rest of your face and body, making it more prone to dryness, droopiness, lines and wrinkles.

3 Do’s and Don’ts for Treating the Skin Around Your Eyes

1. Do Commit to Treating Your Eye Skin
Eye creams always seem to be forgotten when it comes to people’s skincare but this shouldn’t be the case. You need a moisturiser that can penetrate the area to deliver the hydration it needs.

2. Don’t Rely on Your Regular Facial Moisturiser for the Eye Area
You need an eye cream that is specifically designed for eyelid skin. Face serums and moisturisers may contain active ingredients such as retinoids that are too strong for the eye area. A lot of moisturisers can also be too thick or heavy for the delicate skin in this area and this can lead to small white cysts around your eye called milia (or milk spots).

3. Do Opt for Natural Ingredients When Choosing an Eye Cream
Because of the risk of irritation, you should avoid harsh creams that contain chemicals or parabens. Natural ingredients mean you don’t need to worry about what you’re applying on your delicate eye area and these ingredients can be potent and effective while still being safe. Just because it’s a delicate area, doesn’t mean you need a bland moisturiser.
Our award winning Firming Eye Cream contains rich, nourishing ingredients like shea, macadamia and vitamin C and E to plump and moisturise the under eye area and keep it looking fresh. If you want to go for a lighter option, maybe for a warmer climate or if your
eyes are feeling irritated, our Natural Cooling Eye Gel would be ideal. The aloe vera in this cools and soothes the skin while the vitamin E works to hydrate and reduce darkness and puffiness.
