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.
Preserve the delicate Eye Area
Introduction to Eye Care
Inherited conditions, lack of sleep and exposure to UVA/UVB can contribute towards ageing around the eye area. Avoiding excessive sun exposure and using eye creams are the keys to preventing the signs of ageing. 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.
It is always best to choose 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 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.
Eye Care Routine
Eye care should be used with all treatments or as a preventive in all anti-ageing programmes to protect the delicate area from premature ageing:
To be applied directly after the cleansing routine.
- DermaFix EyeLuronic Gel, wrinkle attenuator can be used on and around the eye area helping to plump-up fine lines and wrinkles.
- DermaFix Corrective Eye Complex, rich in stem cells helping to prevent and correct the lack of firmness around the eye area whilst assisting in epidermal regeneration.
- DermaFix CircleLight, 24% peptide based, assisting in the improvement of dark circles, puffiness and congestion.
- MD Prescriptives DNA Protection protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration, ageing and improves cell longevity.
General eye sensitivities must be considered with the below two products. When initially using the DermaFix Corrective Eye Complex and the DermaFix CircleLight it is recommended to build up the skins tolerance by introducing it every alternate day for the first two weeks and increasing application to daily use from there-after.
