An eye cream is just that guys- an eye cream which means a face cream should not be used around the delicate eye area.
This does mean having another product on your shelf but structurally the eyes are very different and therefore have completely different needs in terms of ingredients and indeed even the clients personal concerns.
How is the Eye area Different?
The skin itself is very thin so because of that, the skin around your eyes is more prone to laxity, developing fine lines and wrinkles, becoming looser, and even thinner.
Eye products have been specifically formulated to ensure the essential ingredients actually gives the eyes what it needs, something which a face moisturiser cannot do.
When should i start using an Eye Cream?
Honestly, the earlier the better. In my many years of experience as a skin therapist i believe it’s the product that you won’t appreciate why you have used it until you stop and the reality is prevention is key when it comes to the delicate eye area
Sometimes we forget that it’s the simple concepts of skincare that people misunderstand or are confused about- We hope this has helped you understand this important concept of eye care.
