Learn how to take care of the delicate eyelid skin the way it deserves: carefully, with the most delicate and effective cleansers, moisturizers, and protectors.
Causes of rapid aging of eyelid skin
There are girls who love eye cream so much that they are willing to apply it to their entire face. Others consider it a weak link in the chain of care. Of course, those in the first camp are right, but it is still better to use such a cream without fanaticism and apply it only at the destination.
The skin around your eyes, unlike the skin on your cheeks or forehead, is very vulnerable. Why?
- It has poor barrier and moisture-retaining properties.
- The skin around the eyes is much more sensitive and thin (six times thinner than the skin on your cheeks, for example), so it evaporates moisture many times faster.
- Mimicry also contributes to dryness and the appearance of wrinkles. And if you like to wash off your makeup and rub your eyes, it can make things worse.
How to choose an eye cream
A few years ago, eye creams are not divided into day and night: it was thought that if you put such a tool at bedtime, then in the morning are guaranteed swelling. But now the situation has changed. The production of night formulas with oils and vitamins, such as A and C, which do not cause swelling, is well established. It's a good idea to apply them before going to bed, as the skin recovers more actively at night.
