Why the skin around the eye ages so quickly and how to protect it !

When it comes to maintaining a youthful look, your eyes are your greatest opportunity. Whether it’s wrinkles, dark shadows, puffiness, or just  tired-looking, your eyes experience aging before any other part of your face!


There are several factors that contribute to these problems.

  1. The skin itself is very thin with minimal supporting structures.
  2. Loss of collagen creates  looser thinner tissues. .
  3.  Anatomical factors: The lids  are  literally covering the hollow space of the eye socket.
  4. There is also the issue of dark circles which can be caused by skin pigment or transmitted from the underlying blood compartment.
  • To differentiate; pinch  the skin of the eyelid if the colour disappears, the problem is transmitted from deeper down alternatively if the discolouration persists pigment is an integral part of the skin.

 The good news is that there are plenty of ways to redress the damage to the skin around your eyes.

Follow these  essential tips you need to keep your future looking bright.

Avoid applying your face products around the eyelids!

A lot of patients are confused about eye cream. They think that whatever they use on the rest of their face will work just fine on their eyes. Unfortunately,  many of those ingredients are too strong for the delicate eye.  

Your  moisturiser is not an anti-aging treatment and, while hydration is often  something you need, it won’t do anything to fix or prevent the signs of aging.

Vitamin C and Retinols when applied sparingly may be suitable for  your eyelids
