All EYES on you

Posted

Did you know that the skin around your eye is 10 times thinner than the rest of your skin on your face?

Because it is so thin, it does not produce as much oils than the rest of your face. Have you seen anyone with oily bags? The productive oils your skin produces are meant to kept your skin soft and supple. When you get older your skin produces less of this productive oil, hence aging commences.  The first signs of aging are always around the eyes. Because that area is already thin, the process starts there first and foremost.  Fun time right?  Paaartay!

I'm a big big fan of eye creams.  The earlier your start using eye creams the longer you can prolong this inevitable process.  If you are in your 20's I suggest using a basic moisturizing eye cream.  It shouldn't cost more than $30.00 and it's main purpose is to hydrate. You're already young and youthful!  Just keep it going by adding this small step into your life.  I like the Soothing Eye Contour Cream by Avene.

If you are in your 30's and you feel like you need a little bit more oomph in your eye cream, I suggest Malin and Goetz Rice Bran Eye Moisturizer. This eye cream will help with darkness and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. (This is the eye cream I am currently using.)

If you have MAJOR concerns about your eye area I would then suggest the mack daddy eye cream, The Youth As You Know It from Bliss. 

This Bliss product is made to combat the 7 signs of aging.  In case you weren't aware of them, here they are listed out for you. How many do you have?

  • Darkness 
  • Crow's Feet
  • Sagging of the upper eyelid
  • Sagging lower eyelid
  • Drooping Eyebrow 
  • Under Eye Wrinkles
  • Skin Texture Changes

Depressing and sad right?  I agree. The whole process sucks.  A little of eye cream can go a long way and I strongly recommend you looking into an eye cream if you are currently not using one. Remember to always use your ring finger when applying eye cream and tap around the orbital bone.  Never pull, rub or tug around that area. 

Got all that? If not feel free to come in or send me a question in the comments and I can answer your eye cream questions!

Till next time!

xoxo
