Do I really need an eye cream?
Your eyes experience ageing before any other part of your face whether it’s wrinkles, hollowness, puffiness or just plain tired looking. So, when it comes to restoring a youthful look, your eyes are your greatest opportunity. The skin itself is very thin and because of that, the skin around your eyes is more susceptible to breaking down, meaning that it is more prone to becoming looser and developing fine lines and wrinkles. Therefore, a targeted treatment for the delicate eye area is vital in completing a 360-skincare routine. You probably have asked yourself “what is an eye cream” or “what is an eye serum”. Because of the eyes delicacy and being one of the first places to show signs of ageing, a targeted treatment helps directly restore and refine the specific needs the eye area requires.
One of the main factors contributing to ageing eyes is lack of “beauty” sleep. Sleep helps the body renew and repair itself and allows your eyes to rest. A lack of sleep can lead to a reduced capacity to repair daily damage such as:
- Inflammation causing eye bags, dark circles, sagginess and barrier degradation
- Microcapillary formation and permeability causing dark circles and eye bags
- Weakened skin barrier causing sagginess and compromised immune response
- Glycation – weakened barrier and sagging
- Altered lymphatic drainage – puffiness and inflammation
Along with sleep, a good, specially formulated eye serum or eye cream is essential so it can work it’s magic while you sleep. A good eye serum should give the eyes what they need which is collagen stimulating ingredients where it is needed. To repair the eyes you need to increase your collagen production and to do that, you need to stimulate the cells (fibroblasts) located in the lower layers of the skin. Peptides are the best collagen stimulators so, an eye serum or cream that is rich in peptides is essential to keeping the eyes looking open and young.
Applying the serum or cream using massage will also help to keep the eyes looking young by increasing the skin’s circulation, elasticity and tone. Using a massage tip or tool along the brow area can deliver a lifting result over time with consistent use and is also excellent in reducing under eye circles. Keep it in the refrigerator and use in the morning to instantly wake you up!
