Eyes are said to be the window to the soul but what do your eyes say about you? Eye products are the 3rd most important skincare purchase so when it comes to beauty regime, why we need to look after them differently?
Ø The skin is so delicate around the eyes; it is only 0.5mm thin! This makes it incredibly fragile, easily sensitised and damaged. So be careful with your eyes gently pat around the area with the ring finger
Ø There are 22 muscles around the eye!
Ø The skin around the eyes doesn’t have as many sebaceous glands so skin is more prone to dehydration which causes age concerns to show more. Be careful not to use more eye product than recommended as overloading the skin in this area can lead to puffiness.
Ø We blink an incredible 28,000 times a day! WOW!
Ø Eyes are the first place you see signs of stress and ageing even as early as your 20s
Ø Eyes experience constant daylight exposure to UV so are prone to sun damage. Choose an eye cream with an SPF and don’t forget those sunglasses!
Ø Our eyes are busy we experience repetitive mechanical stressors when smiling, frowning, during make up application and removal and also during sleep!
