When it comes to restoring a youthful look, your eyes are your greatest opportunity. Whether it’s wrinkles, hollowness, puffiness, or just plain tired-looking, your eyes experience ageing before any other part of your face.

The eyes are the first to go and the most important to fix.

There are several making factors making the eyes more vulnerable.

  1. The skin itself is very thin—because of that, the skin around your eyes is more susceptible to breaking down, meaning it’s that it’s more prone to laxity, developing fine lines and wrinkles, becoming looser, and even thinner. This can make veins around the eye area more visible looking dark.
  2. The tissue below the eyes is naturally missing a lot of essential elements that make your skin strong—there’s very little soft tissue like fat or muscle. Lack of those supporting elements increases the likelihood of the skin caving in.
  3. Making matters worse is the anatomical fact that the skin itself is literally covering the hollow space of the eye socket.
  4. There is also the issue of dark circles and puffiness that can be a result of lack of sleep, diet and stress.

Which Eye Treatments Work?

Eye Creams

Don't use face cream around your eyes, its ingredients are too strong and can cause sensitivity, inflammation and stinging. They are too heavy for the delicate eye area and can actually cause puffiness and sagging. 

Don't apply creams too close to the eyes. Eye creams should be delicately applied with your ring finger to the bones of the eyes only.  Applying too close can block the tear ducts and cause swelling and redness of the eyes.

Which Eye Cream Should I use?

It comes down to ingredients in my opinion. There are a few ingredients that are a must for an ageing eye area.

  1. Vitamin C
  2. Hyaluronic Acid
  3. Retinol
  4. Peptides
