The eye area is very delicate, not only because the skin is thinner than the rest of the face, but also it contains very little irrigation of sebum (oil). Mother nature made it that way because if we did, oil will end up in our eyes. The down side to that is that age takes its course there first…
Using an eye cream at an early age will keep that area well hydrated, preventing the early formation of lines and wrinkles.
There are many different formulations of eye creams.. ingredients such as arnica, vitamin K, vitamin C, Helichrysum, peptides, licorice, etc… are just a few of the ingredients regularly used in eye creams to help treat dark circles, puffiness and lines and wrinkles.
One question that I get asked all the time is “how and when to apply the eye cream”?
For optimum results it is normally recommended to apply the eye cream twice a day, along with the rest of your skincare regimen.
The best direction to apply it is INWARDS with a continuous circular pattern and with soft tapping movements using your ring finger… that way you don’t cause any pulling on the skin and help to increase circulation and absorption of the product.
