Due to an extremely thin epidermis, the presence of a large number of nerve endings and the low number of fat cells, the eye contour is an area known for its fragility and sensitivity to signs of fatigue, stress or age: dark circles, puffiness and fine lines appear easily. The skin in this area dries faster and is easily irritated and can quickly lead to a feeling of tightness, tingling or burning. In addition, given its thinness, this area is particularly exposed to UV rays, the main cause of skin aging and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
To fight these dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles, it is essential to take good care of your skin and to choose a product adapted to the problem.
To choose an eye care, the most appropriate, it is first necessary to know the origin of these rings and bags.
Dark circles and puffiness can be the consequence of poor circulation, lack of sleep or an unbalanced lifestyle (tobacco, alcohol, etc.) that prevents the proper disposal of metabolic waste via the blood and lymphatic circulation. The dark color of dark circles is due to the accumulation of blood pigments that appear under the thin skin. Pockets are the result of poor circulation resulting in water retention that will increase with age because there is a sagging skin in this area. To fight against these circulatory problems, it is therefore advisable to opt for a treatment that contains active agents that improve microcirculation, such as arnica, escin, witch hazel or ruscus.
The Auriga laboratory offers a complete box targeted on dark circles, called Cernor Kit, containing a cream that addresses the vascular problems of dark circles and an emulsion that focuses more on the unsightly coloring of dark circles. Thus, your look will regain its brilliance and freshness.
Limit wrinkles and fine lines around the eye
This area, extremely fine and delicate, is one of the first to be affected by skin aging. As soon as the first wrinkles appear, it is essential to use a specific care adapted to the area around the eye, having both anti-aging, moisturizing and nourishing properties. In addition, do not forget to protect this place from the sun by wearing glasses and sunscreen.
Redermic C eyes of the brand La Roche Posay is a care for sensitive skin that targets fine lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness of the eye contour. Its formula contains glycerine and shea butter to moisturize and nourish the skin, hyaluronic acid to fill wrinkles and vitamin C from the inside to stimulate collagen production, helping to fill wrinkles and wrinkles.
Lack of sleep and excess alcohol can cause unsightly swellings. A refreshing and decongestant care must then be used to reduce them. It is important to apply it regularly for visible and lasting results. If you place this care in the fridge, you will also enjoy an “icicle effect” that will immediately reduce the pockets.
From 25 years, you can use a care to fight against these pockets, such as Dioptigel Lierac anti-pockets, which is a decongestant non-greasy gel based on natural draining active ingredients (Alchemilla, Ivy, Horsetail and Chamomile) .
For sensitive skin, prone to redness and tightness, it is advisable to opt for a moisturizing and soothing care as with Avène, soothing eye contour treatment.
With age and ease, it is advisable to turn to a multi-use product, which addresses both the problems of circulation, staining of the skin under the eye and signs related to age. In this way, the SVR Densitium contour eye treatment helps to fight against puffiness and dark circles, as well as to treat the sagging and drooping of the eyelids.
Eye care is available in lotion, emulsion, cream or oil. The texture of the eye contour care is necessarily fluid, far from that of thick face creams, which could clog the pores of the very fragile skin of this area. Oils and lotions are therefore preferred to facilitate application. It should be known that gel care is light and creams are richer. Serums, which are real asset concentrates, allow them to tackle the targeted problems with intensity. For anti-aging treatments, it is preferable to favor a cream or balm, so that the skin penetrates intensely to fill wrinkles and deeply nourish the skin.
Whatever the chosen product, the area around the eye should not be neglected, so it is important to have a good application. As a first step, apply a small amount of product from the inside to the outside, at the bottom and at the top. Then, it is necessary to make light taps, with two fingers, to make it penetrate and restart the microcirculation.
