Smoother Skin Around the Eyes

February 26th, 2013 • Posted by Email Marketing • Permalink

The eyes are the focal point of the face and it is no wonder that there are various ways to adorn them.  We want others to look into our eyes and tap into the beauty within.  Taking care of the delicate skin around the eyes yields a healthier appearance and younger look.  This may be an area that is overlooked by many, but requires special care and attention.

The skin around the eyes is ten times thinner than the rest of the face. As we age this skin becomes even thinner due to the breakdown of collagen. The elasticity of the skin decreases and produces fine lines in the area. This can be further aggravated by sun exposure, smoking, and other environmental exposures. The skin of the eye contour is constantly moving and blinking alone produces 10,000 movements per day!

With proper care, many common symptoms can be avoided. Caring for the skin around the eyes is a delicate process. Because it is thinner, it not only tends to be the first place to show signs of aging, but also is more sensitive than the rest of the skin. It is important to use a cream that is specific to the eye area so that elasticity and moisture can be addressed.

Ask our facialist which eyecream is best for your skin type so that you will be well on your way to the proper care of this delicate area.
