Eye Contour Care
The skin around the eyes is the area where skin aging becomes visible first. Here the skin is much thinner and therefore often more sensitive than that of the rest of the face. Because the skin is thinner at the eye contours and we use our eyes for expression, wrinkles and fine lines appear much faster in comparison with the rest of our skin. In addition, no sebaceous glands are present under the eyes, so that the skin is always slightly drier than the rest of the face.
Eye Contour Care is 'fuller'
Because the skin around the eyes is often somewhat drier, it needs an oilier treatment than the rest of the face. Even with people who have a mixed to oily skin, this is the case.
Eye Contour Care reduces the appearance of fine lines
Eye Contour Care contains natural 'fillers' with which the skin around the eyes is filled up and smoothed out, as it were. This reduces the appearance of fine lines. The effect is similar to applying a make-up primer that temporarily smoothes and smoothens the skin so that it is a perfect canvas for the rest of your make-up. In addition, Eye Contour Care also contains light-reflecting particles that reflect the light, giving your eye image a fresher look and making dark circles less noticeable.
Eye Contour Care has been specially developed for sensitive skin
Because the skin around the eyes is thinner and therefore also more delicate, it is also more sensitive to higher concentrations of active substances. Eye Contour Care therefore contains lower concentrations of active substances so that the chance of a skin reaction is minimal. Eye Contour Care contains specific active ingredients to combat dark circles, fine lines and 'puffy eyes'.
Protection from the sun
To prevent skin aging, the skin must always be protected from the sun. This certainly applies to the skin around the eyes. Our Eye Creams therefore contain UV protection.
When to start
Because from the age of 25 the cell division of the skin begins to slow down and the first signs of skin aging become visible, often in the form of fine lines around the eyes, we recommend starting from this age with the use of an eye contour care.
Tips for applying your eye care:
- Take a drop of eye cream/serum/gel, about the size of a grain of rice.
- Divide this over two ring fingers.
- Only use your ring finger when applying your eye care, because this is the finger with the 'softest touch' and will place the slightest pressure on the skin.
- Apply the eye care to the edge of the eye socket, top and bottom (the 'hard' part). Use tapping movements.
- Avoid the skin just under the eyes, near the lashes; it is extra delicate and cream/serum/gel can cause irritation.
- Always apply the product from the inside out.
