We all wish to look starry eyed but actually the eye area is usually the first area on the face to show signs of ageing. It can look fatigued and dehydrated more obviously and quickly than any other area on the face due to the lack of oil glands and the lid has a very thin veil of skin. ‘Worry lines’ can begin to develop around the eyes for some in their early 20’s and vertical lines are particularly ageing.
Awareness and confidence in the achievable results has greatly increased the use of eye creams and serums. Night time during sleep is when your skin has the chance to renew and repair. It is safe from environmental factors. A night eye serum can work with optimum efficiency and accelerates the regeneration process.
This delicate area needs only a small amount of the correct product. Too much product, too close can result in puffiness or irritation. Tap your eye product around the bone. Always treat the eye area gently especially when cleansing and removing make up.
Dark circles and shadows will diminish with increased micro-circulation. Salon treatments specifically designed for the eye area can ‘lift’ heavy lids, drain puffiness and plump fine lines. A quality make up concealer will disguise imperfections. Make up with skincare such as Eve Pearl salmon concealers are my recommendation.
THE EYES ARE THE WINDOW OF THE SOUL…….
