You could spend a bomb on anti-aging products but look terribly old if you don’t invest in the right eye skincare. With its skin being ten times thinner than the rest of your face, the eye area requires the most care. We discuss how to provide the right care for the most delicate part of your face.

Did you know?

The average human blinks around 10,000 times a day. Having this fragile skin overexert itself like that, it comes as no surprise that the first tell-tale signs of your age show up here. As you age, collagen and elastin production decelerate and the skin loses what supports its shape. This is when the skin sags, and fine lines (or laugh lines) appear around the eye.

To avoid this, most people run looking for the richest eye cream.

That, however, is a grave misconception. Thick formulas that are overly emollient on the skin around the eyes can cause milia seeds. (Read more about what milia seeds are here)  When the product is too thick to be quickly absorbed by the skin, it could cause clogging, thus leading to tiny seeds around the eye area. Instead, opt for lighter gels or serums that penetrate the skin quicker.

Overexposure to sunlight is also a major factor of aging around the eyes.

Therefore, be sure not to forget the SPF for your eye area! Caring for the skin around your eyes should start as early as 25, but it’s never too late to start.

Not having enough sleep every night?

Puffy eyes, unsightly dark eye rings and huge eye bags are your eyes form of protest. The blood vessels supplying oxygen and nutrients are smaller in thin skin, and therefore the skin under your eyes are more susceptible to the issues your body face.
