Why use an Eye Cream?
Have you ever wondered why your Beauty Therapist recommends that you use an eye cream?
Well now you can stop wondering. Here are a few good reasons you should choose to use an eye cream in addition to your regular facial moisturizer .
You have probably noticed that the skin around your eyes is very delicate so therefore it needs special attention. Because it is so delicate and has no oil glands it is prone to dehydration. Dehydration is a main contributor to fine lines and wrinkles. Due to squinting, sun damage, constant movement and loss of collagen as we age, the eye area will show signs of premature aging.
Eye creams are specifically formulated to target concerns such as, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. Puffiness is due to a build up of fluid and blood ingredients. Ingredients like caffeine and Vitamin B5 can help with increasing blood flow, helping to reduce puffiness. Dark circles can be genetic, caused through sun damage and blood build up. Vitamin C as found in high concetrations in Kakadu Plum, can help to stimulate collagen, thickening the skin which helps to conceal dark circles. As the skin around the eyes is very prone to drying out ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid which can hold up to 1000 times it's own weight in moisture will assist in keeping the area hydrated.
Normal face creams can be too rich for the delicate eye area and can also contribute to puffiness. As the eye area is so delicate and is prone to premature aging without proper attention everyone should take particular care around the eyes. People prone to eye irritation and with sensitive skin should definitely use a separate eye cream.
So take 30 seconds to add on to your skin care routine and use around the size of a rice grain to prolong aging around your eye area.
