The eyes are the focal point of the face, but often are the first to show signs of aging & fatigue. Eye bags, bulges and wrinkles can not only interfere with vision, they can give an individual a tired, sad appearance, with cosmetic and psychological ramifications.
The eyelid skin is the thinnest skin of the human body, so as we age, skin loses its elasticity and becomes even thinner due to a breakdown of collagen. Because the skin around the eyes has very few oil glands, it lacks the natural moisture present on other parts of the body.
These aging changes are further aggravated by sun exposure, smoking, and constant movement due to facial expressions such as smiling & squinting, which create fine lines or crows feet.
Under eye puffiness can be exacerbated by salty foods, allergies and internal dehydration.
Rubbing and tugging of the delicate skin under the eye due to allergies, crying, eye makeup removal and insertion and removal of contact lenses can also contribute to sagging of the this area.
Maintaining Healthy Skin Around the Eyes
Because eyelid is thinner, it tends to be the first place to show signs of aging & is more sensitive than the rest of the skin.
Choosing a skincare product that contains gentle, non-irritating compounds that reduce the appearance of wrinkles, along with a wide range of vitamins, antioxidants, and skin-plumping substances are ideal choices.
Only products containing a very mild AHA formula should be used on the delicate periocular area, moisturizers such as sodium hyaluronate help reduce fine lines caused by dehydration, along with other liposomes that decrease redness, puffiness & revitalize, nourish the skin and products containing Retinol and Vitamin C help build collagen
