The skin of the eye area is unique in that it is much thinner, finer and more sensitive than the skin on the rest of the face. It also doesn’t produce a natural grease. All this poses various problems with beauty products, most commonly with make-up. As the eyes are a vital part of a beautiful face it is normal for us to notice anything that detracts from the beauty of the eyes. The most common problems are lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, crêpey eyelids, dark circles and puffiness. There are endless products on the market that claim to deal with any one or all of these problems but choosing the best eye cream can be a tricky ordeal.
TIP: My experience is that the one thing to avoid when purchasing an eye treatment is not to buy it in a cream formula. The skin around the eye is very thin and easily absorbs product. Creams are oil based and much heavier than water-based gels or lotions. Applying creams around or on the eye area will invariably result in the skin absorbing the cream and it ‘sitting’ beneath the skin creating or adding to a puffy appearance – the LAST thing you want to achieve. Whatever your eye beauty concern, look for water -based, gel, or lotion type products and research the active ingredients.
If you want a multi-purpose moisturiser that is light enough to be used on your eyes whilst also able to deeply nourish and replenish the rest of the skin on your face, then try our Intensive Hydra-Gel Moisturiser to give your skin the boost it needs. This spectacular oil free moisturiser is also a rich and hydrating collagen cream which packs a strong, anti-ageing punch giving your skin the care and attention it deserves.
