All About The Eyes by Clare O’Hanlon, Business Development Manager at Juliette Armand Skincare

The eyes are the window to the soul. That flirty wink or seductive smokey eyes, we really do speak volumes with our eyes. But unfortunately time isn’t on our side when it comes to the aging process. You see the skin is actually the thinnest around the delicate eye area and we show signs of aging here the quickest.

The most common concerns around the eyes are fine lines/crows feet, puffiness, dark circles and sagging skin starting from under the eyebrow. It all depends on how you take care of your eyes to determine how bad these conditions get. My main rules with eye care is to avoid rubbing your eyes hard as this can prematurely age the skin, always wear sunglasses when in direct sunlight to avoid squint lines from forming, invest in a good eyecream that does more than just hydrate your skin, use an eye mask twice weekly and sleep on a silk pillowcase as it prevents creases forming which turn to wrinkles.

The top ingredients to look out for in eye care include AA2g: Vitamin C decreases wrinkle size, volume and depth.

Hyaluronic acid: plumps out the lines because it holds 1000 times its weight in water

Vitamin A: rejuvenates the skin, renewing it consistently.

Argireline Solution: treats expression lines and wrinkles.

Eyeseryl: treats puffiness and reduces eye bags.

Aldavine: enhances the production of Type III collagen by 300% withing 1 week.

It is easy enough to find an eye cream the will hydrate you skin but we need more than hydrating to combats all the marks of time around our eyes.
