The skin around our eyes is very thin and delicate. These eye care products nourish and strengthen the skin to prevent early signs of ageing.
The Eyes: Most Common Concerns
While many of our skin issues are genetic, some of them can be worsened by lifestyle, environmental exposure, or ageing. That’s true even for the skin around the eyes.
Dark circles. As the skin around the eyes grow thinner, dark circles can look more prominent. Increased hyperpigmentation can also caused the entire eye area – including the eyelid – to look darker.
Puffy eyes. These can be worsened by poor blood circulation and ageing. As we lose collagen and elastin, the skin around our eyes sags.
Fine lines and crow’s feet. This common sign of ageing tends to show up first around the eyes.
“Crepe” like skin texture. The skin on the eyelids lose their firmness and smoothness. Eventually, the “crinkly” appearance worsens, and the skin visibly sags.
How to Choose Eye Care Products – at every age!
It’s never too early to start using eye cream. While you can apply face moisturizers to the eye area, many of those creams are very thick or viscous. Remember, the skin around the eyes is very thin, so it can have trouble absorbing your face creams.
In your 20s. Look for eye products that contain SPF and antioxidants, and hydrate the eye area. Tip: apply a light eye cream before putting on your concealer or eye primer. Not only does it protect your eyes, but it hydrates the skin so creamy makeup products becomes easier to blend.
In your 30s. Your collagen and elastin levels are already decreasing, so look for firming eye creams. You may also notice your dark circles are getting worse – a side effect of ageing, sun exposure, hormonal changes and lifestyle. Brightening eye creams can help keep your eyes looking fresh even before you apply concealer.
In your 40s and 50s. Fine lines and sagging may begin to appear, so start using eye care products with powerful anti-ageing ingredients. Some of the best eye care products claim to be like “Botox in a Bottle”, and can visibly lift and refresh the eye area after 6 weeks.
Eye Care Tips
Pat eye care products into your skin with your ring fingers. This pushes the ingredients into your skin without rubbing and tugging!
Protect your eyes from sun damage. While you can’t wear sunscreen around your eyes, you still need to shield it from damaging UV rays. Wear UV-blocking eyeglasses or a hat whenever you are outdoors, especially at “peak hours” like 10 am to 3pm.
Avoid rubbing or scrubbing the eyes. Be conscious of habits like rubbing the eyes or scrubbing off eye makeup.
