As the seasons change, so does our skin. Now is the time to consider making a few adjustments to your daily regimen. You may have your cleansing and moisturizing down to a science (if you don’t please email me personally for assistance), but what about the skin of your eyes? I encounter many women (and men) that seldom use eye cream; some believe their daily face/body cream is sufficient for their needs and concerns. However, once you are a bit more informed on the anatomy of the eye’s skin, you might feel different about investing in an eye cream.
The skin under your eye and over your lids is the thinnest area of the face and body. This area on your face is more transparent with less sebaceous glands (a small gland in the skin which secretes a lubricating oily matter (sebum) into the hair follicles to lubricate the skin and hair.) which is why the discoloration under the eye is more visible and prone to dehydration which can contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. Puffiness and dark circles are other common under eye
concerns that can be aggravating if not addressed. If you are seeking relief for your under eye invest in a repair under eye cream for nighttime use, and a day eye cream for protection. Make sure your products contain ingredients that reduce fluid retention, strengthen the blood vessels under the eye and improve skin laxity.
Below are a few recommendations for under eye products:
A.G.E EYE COMPLEX by SkinCeuticals: improves the look of mature, aging skin, and alleviates fine lines and wrinkles. $96
HYDRO COOL FIRMING EYE GELS by Skyn Iceland: these cooling gel patches feature firming ingredients to sooth moisturize, replenish and soften the skin. $20-$30

CONTOURING EYE SERUM by Kate Somerville: an anti-wrinkle peptide that helps relax the muscles around the eyes, while a purified microalgae extract provides an instant visible tightening effect. $125
Also, please be mindful that genetics, diet, stress, lifestyle, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, exposure to environmental toxins, and smoking may all be contributes to your skin concerns too.
