Why An Eye Cream Should Be Part Of Your Skincare Routine

According to the famous saying, the eyes are the windows to the soul, but the skin around them also tells us a lot about our current health and lifestyle choices. That's because everything can affect the eye area, from illness to medication, poor diet and dehydration. Some people are genetically prone to dark circles or puffiness – although lifestyle factors also play their part. If you've been partying all night or you are a smoker, then your eyes will give you away. 

Even if you eat well and usually get plenty of sleep, the skin around the eyes is particularly vulnerable to premature ageing as it is ten times thinner than the rest of the face. It is also subject to wear and tear. We touch and rub our eyes without even realising it. Over time, this can stretch the thin skin and contribute to under-eye and eyelid sagging. Eyes are very expressive too; all the micro-contractions that happen to your skin as you smile or blink can cause lines and creases over time. 

Eye creams are essential to any good skincare routine as they are full of active ingredients, protect against signs of ageing, brighten dark circles, reduce puffiness, and nourish the eye contour. Avoid being tempted to use a face moisturiser around the eyes as the product is too rich and can cause congestion and sensitivity. Also, issues with the skin around the eyes are very different from those on the rest of the face. 

Use an eye cream twice a day. When used in the morning, it will protect the delicate skin from pollutants and environmental aggressors while working to reduce puffiness and signs of fatigue. When used in the evening, they help support the skin's natural renewal process, improving elasticity and firmness for a more youthful-looking complexion.

To apply, cleanse the eyes and face, tone, apply face serum, and then, with your ring finger, use a grain of rice-sized amount of eye cream to the area, following the orbital bone towards the temples without dragging the skin. Avoid the eyelid and lashes. Follow with day or night cream.

Our recommendations are:
