The skin around the eyes can be 1/10th as thick as the skin on the face. Fewer oil glands exist around the eyes; hence this part of the face is more likely to show premature signs of ageing and requires more detailed skin care products, techniques and regimes. Inherited conditions, lack of sleep and exposure to UVA/UVB can contribute towards ageing around the eye area that adequate skin care can prolong. Avoiding excessive sun exposure and using eye creams are the keys to preventing the signs of ageing and should be incorporated into the normal skin care routine. Puffiness caused by allergies and alcohol consumption can be clearly visible and evident as to just how good or bad you’re feeling. It is therefore necessary to pay special attention to the eye area.


Moisturiser around my eyes for complete eye skin care


It is always best to choose skin care products specifically formulated for the eye area. While most face products would not actually cause harm to the delicate skin around the eyes, they are not correctly formulated for this specific area. A prime concern for safe use of skin care products around the eyes is in the allergy-prone skin types with sensitive eyes. Some ingredients contained in face products may be slightly irritating or ineffective. Eye creams contain liposomal ingredients to target specific concerns around the eyes, like dark circles and puffiness. Reduce the puffiness in the skin under the eyes with hesperidin methyl chalcone and dipeptide-2, contained in DermaFix CircleLight, by using a very light massage to help stimulate the lymphatic system.  To counter the ageing of the skin, one needs to increase cellular activity.


Crow’s feet


Crow’s feet, commonly known as laugh lines, are caused by the breakdown of collagen in the skin, a direct result of sun exposure and extrinsic ageing, similar to other wrinkles on the face. Since the skin around the eyes is much thinner than that of the face, wrinkles may appear prematurely. Using an eye cream twice daily, as part of your skin care regime, will soften the look of fine lines and deeply moisturise the delicate skin. The Epidermis is the primary barrier of the skin with the main purpose of keeping the inside in and the outside out. The barrier is rich in cholesterol, free fatty acids, and ceramides, as found in DermaFix Ceramide Complex. Dehydration of the skin can be averted by using specialised DermaFix moisturisers which provide flexibility to the skin, as they are formulated with encapsulated ingredients that target the cells.

Hyaluronic Acid is an established and well-documented humectant, contained in DermaFix Eyeluronic Gel. It increases the skin’s moisture retaining ability andis the cardinal ingredient for moisturising formulations. This amazing product may be applied to the eyelids, in order to help remove fine lines and wrinkles.

DermaFix Corrective Eye Complex and Circle Light are peptides in liposomes and stem cellformulations which help in the repair of the biological systems, thus enhancing the ability to stimulate collagen. You can also decrease free radical damage with DermaFix Vitamin C Serum and increase the skin’s healing ability with DermaFix ActiveCellCeutical Copper, which has antibacterial properties for those prone to infections and may therefore be applied to the closed eyelids.

DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care accelerates the skin’s natural repair process between 40% – 50%, in 28 days of regular use. Your routine should include protection of the skin against the harmful effects of UVA/UVB radiation.  DermaFix DermaShield SPF 50 High Protection Sunscreen offers a High Protection formula against both UVA and UVB, and is SANS 1557:2013 approved.
