The skin around the eyes is ten times thinner than the skin on the face; making it extra fragile. As time passes and our collagen breaks down, the upper lids loosen, the lower lids get puffy and fine lines start to appear. This area is also most susceptible to environmental damage from pollution and UV rays –– ouch!
Every redhead, no matter what age, should incorporate an eye cream or gel into their redhead skincare routine. These specific eye products are designed to de-puff, brighten and work specifically on this super delicate area of the skin.
Here are three tips when applying an eye cream:
1. After your serums, apply the cream around your eye twice a day, morning and night. Gently tap the product around your eye using your ring finger as this finger has the lightest touch.
2. If you have noticeably dark circles under the eyes, it’s is highly recommended by beauticians to opt for creams with vitamin K. Doctors use it before cosmetic surgery to prevent bruising.
3. It is said that gels present faster results than creams, but every person’s skin is different. Try both options and see which one is best for you.
