Why The Skin Around
Your Eyes is So Very Special
There is a good reason why eye skin care is so
important. Think about how many
individualized expressions you convey with your eyes. You can’t express any of it, really, without
moving the skin that surrounds them. You
frown, you squint, you smile, you show surprise and dozens of other certain
looks and your skin crinkles up or stretches out in response.
Some people are proud of the lines and wrinkles they’ve
developed on the skin around their eyes, believing it shows their life stories
and their character. So, yes, your eye
area is very special. But it’s also
special in other, less positive ways, depending upon your viewpoint.
Did you realize that the skin surrounding your eyes is about
ten times thinner than the skin around the rest of your face? Think about that! Because the skin is thinner, it is usually
the first place where signs of aging are seen.
All of those repetitive facial expressions you make, while giving you
character and personality, also give you set-in lines and wrinkles that not all
of us wish to live with.
The skin around the eyes is also referred to as the
periocular area. As we age, this
periocular area also ages, becoming even thinner because of collagen
deterioration. The skin’s elasticity
also breaks down. The skin is left
looking wrinkled, dehydrated, puffy and tired.
You can look especially tired when dark circles or shadows become more
prominent in this eye area. At this
point (or sooner if you anticipate this happening), many women seek out an eye
firming cream. Eye firming products can
do wonders to tighten up that special periocular skin, making you look younger
and less tired out.
The skin around the eyes, besides being thin, is also more
sensitive than other skin areas. This
makes it important to find an eye firming cream that will not upset the
delicate skin there. You’ll need to find
an eye night cream, for instance, that will not irritate the skin. So it must be gentle yet effective. An eye night cream or any eye moisturizers
should be working to exfoliate the skin ever so gently in order to treat
wrinkles. Eye skin care should also
include eye firming products that contain natural ingredients such as vitamins,
anti oxidants, exfoliants such as alpha hydroxy acids, botanicals and/or
special eye moisturizers.
Vitamins, such as Vitamin C, are needed in an eye skin care
regimen because it helps fight off free radicals. Free radicals are very tiny molecules that
have gone off kilter in your skin and they number in the thousands if your skin
is damaged by the sun, pollution or stress.
Free radicals endanger normal cell function by taking away the oxygen
they need to flourish and keep your skin healthy. These free radicals can also damage the cell
membrane. The antioxidants found in
certain vitamins and other natural substances that are in some eye firming
products neutralize these free radicals before the damage can be done. This is key in keeping the skin around your
eyes special and young looking.
Another vitamin, Vitamin K, helps heal the delicate eye skin
and relieves the dark circles that can form there. Vitamin K is also known as phytonadione in
some ingredient listings on an eye firming cream package. You should also read the label for the
inclusion of Vitamin A or Retinol. Retinol
will help with skin cell regeneration, restoring vitality and elasticity to
thinning, aging skin around the eyes.
And Vitamin A is also an all important anti oxidant, again, keeping
those free radicals at bay.
Any quality eye night cream you choose should contain yet
another vitamin: Vitamin E. Vitamin E is a known healing agent and anti
oxidant. If you’ve ever had a wound and
placed pure Vitamin E on it on a regular basis, you would know that it helps
prevent scarring and heals your wounds more quickly.
Your special eye skin care routine deserves a hard-working
eye firming cream with vitamins, peptides, and natural moisturizers in it. Look into Ageless Derma Retinol and Vitamin K
Eye Cream as one example of fine eye moisturizers and healing agents. Ageless Derma’s eye firming cream contains
the very vitamins necessary for free radical help and reduction of wrinkles.
An excellent eye night cream is essential for the special,
delicate, thin skin around your eyes.
With proper eye skin care, you need never look older than you want to.
