01 Jun The Anti-Aging Skincare Step You Can’t Afford to Miss
Women tend to show their age in a few particular places first: the neck, décolletage, back of your hands and most predominately, your eyes.
Yes, it’s true that your eyes are the window to your soul and also a walking copy of your birthdate if left untreated. The skin around our eyes is unlike anywhere else on our faces. It’s thinner, more delicate and lacks the moisture ducts the rest of our skin has that help to hold hydration.
It’s also through our natural expressions like smiling, frowning, laughing and squinting that keep our eye muscles in constant overdrive. The more work those muscles are doing, the more our skin moves and the deeper set lines begin to appear on the surface.
Of course, there’s plenty of skilled doctors that can even wrinkles out with a quick prick of a needle but even better than treating a problem after the fact, is working to prevent it in the first place. Que eye creams.
These highly potent and rich little creams may seem like an indulgence but are absolutely necessary for every woman (and man if you can convince them). You may be thinking you haven’t reached the age where they’re necessary but you really should start as soon as you hit your twenties if you want the best chance possible to keep your eye area looking young and fresh for as long as possible.
There’s so many great options on the market but here’s a few you may not have tried yet…
Rich and luxurious, two words that perfectly sum up this eye cream from Ella Bache (or really, they’re whole entire range). This super thick moisturising treatment immediately begins to alleviate dehydration to leave your skin supple and bouncy. It’s ingredient list boasts lanolin that protects the skins barrier and prevents moisture loss, peanut oil and squalene, an olive oil derivative that is super hydrating. You’ll need to warm it between your ring fingers before gently tapping it around your eye area because it’s really thick but it soaks in quickly and has a beautiful finish.
This lightweight serum is made from 100% pure Kakadu Plum. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s made from native botanicals in the Byron Bay area and is really high in Vitamin C. It’s great for pigmentation, reducing fine lines and boosting collagen around your eye area. It gives you an instant burst of hydration and the serum feels really luxurious. If you give it a minute to sink in properly it’s even great to wear underneath makeup and prep your eye area for concealer.
