A How-To Guide on Caring for the Delicate Skin Around your Eyes
Posted on 07 March 2016
The skin around the eyes is much thinner than the skin on the rest of the face. This thinner skin can cause premature signs of aging such as fine lines to be more prominent. It is important to pay extra attention to this delicate area to keep the skin plump, youthful and vibrant. These easy to follow steps will help you protect the sensitive skin around the eye area.
- Special Ingredients – Using a product that contains the right balance of key ingredients such as peptides and retinol is important. These active ingredients must be concentrated enough to be effective yet not too much as to cause irritation.
- Be Gentle – Because the skin around the eyes is 6-10 times thinner than the skin on the rest of the face be sure to avoid roughly washing, rubbing or anything that may cause skin damage.
- Use a Special Product – Products designed for the thicker skin on the face can often be too harsh for the delicate skin around the eyes. Using a product specially designed to cater to the needs of this sensitive area can greatly improve overall skin health and appearance.
