Importance of Eye Skin Care Routine
Why is an eye skincare routine particularly important during this period?
Until a vaccine enters the market, wearing a mask is the best way to stay protected in the current Covid-19 pandemic. When we cover half our face with a mask, the most prominent part of our face that remains visible to others is our eyes. So naturally, it becomes more important to pay special attention to our eyes. Let us discuss how eye creams and eye masks can help to accentuate the beauty of our eyes.
Why so fragile?
The eye area is perhaps the first part of our face that starts showing signs of aging, and such signs can appear as early as our twenties. This is because the skin around our eyes is very delicate and does not contain enough oil glands. That is why it is very fragile and susceptible to dryness. The skin of our eyelids is the thinnest on our entire body. Also, since this skin remains in constant movement due to blinking, frowning and making expressions, it gets stretched more often and starts showing wrinkles and lines much sooner than any other part of the face.
The severity of wrinkles that you develop as you age largely depends on your genetics. If your parents did not develop fine lines at a young age, chances are that you will also not produce excessive wrinkles on your face. Conversely, if your parents did, then it’s highly likely that you will develop said wrinkles quite early on too. Nevertheless, using eye creams such as PURITO – Centella Green Level Eye Cream periodically can and will help to delay signs of aging around your eyes.
As you age, the production of sebum by your sebaceous glands starts reducing and your skin tends to become drier. Dry skin can make your fine lines even more prominent. But applying eye creams with hydrating ingredients can prevent such dryness in the area around your eyes. A recommended eye cream for this purpose would be SECRET KEY – Starting Treatment Eye cream. The high concentration of galactomyces contained within will help to nourish and revitalise the skin and reduce the signs of aging.
UV rays from the sun are perhaps the biggest threat to your skin. While the rest of your face is protected by the mask, your eyes gain maximum exposure to these rays. As such, it is best to apply sunscreen diligently to the area around the eyes. This will help protect your skin from the damaging effects of sun rays.
The COVID-19 situation has caused several inconveniences and hiding our face behind masks is one of them. Many of us might hence decide to slacken on our beauty regimes. At Formula Bright, we advocate staying positive and continuing to keep them up, while paying special attention to the eye areas. We believe the good days will be back soon and when they do, we want to be ready for them!
Eye masks can accentuate the beauty of your eyes, increase blood circulation in the area, and promote skin firmness. Alternatively, use an eye cream day and night to get a youthful glow and appearance in the skin around your eyes. So if you don’t already have one, consider adding an eye care to your routine.
