Not trying to scare you or anything; but if you’ve been missing out your eye area in your daily skincare routine, girl, you need to stop doing that RN. Women guilty of neglecting the skin around their eyes get dark circles, wrinkles and other skin problems even before hitting 30. Your eyes too need some TLC because, let’s be honest, a concealer can only hide so much.
Eye products are totally worth the splurge, but they are also non-negotiable. You need to have them in your skincare kitty and here’s why. Take a look at all the reasons why you need to start taking your under-eye skincare seriously, like RN.
Ageing signs start with your eye area
What is the first sign of ageing skin? Wrinkles! And, where do they show up first? That’s right. Around your eyes! Fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet appear sooner than most other ageing signs and that’s why you need to make sure you don’t fall prey to them sooner than you actually should. Treat your eyes to Dermalogica Total Eye Care every night before going to bed.
Puffiness and dark circles are common
You were up all night and now it shows on your face. If you pamper your tired eyes regularly, it will help reduce puffiness and keep dark circles at bay. Massage your eye area every day after you apply your night cream and eye cream so your eyes look awake and gorgeous each morning.
The eye area is delicate
In case you didn’t know, the skin around your eyes is thinner and more fragile than other parts of your face, and thus prone to ageing signs and pigmentation. Sun exposure can harm the under-eye area and speed up your ageing clock. We generally tend to leave out our eye area while applying SPF, but you absolutely shouldn’t. Always use a generous amount of sunscreen around eyes to protect them from free radicals.
