The skin around our eyes is incredibly thin and sensitive compared to the rest of our face and body. It lacks oil glands, collagen, and elastin fibres, making it more likely to get dry, develop fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. On top of that, the effects of sun exposure and everyday movement and rubbing can add to premature ageing and damage. That's why it's crucial to treat this delicate area with extra care and a gentle skincare routine.
Here are our top tips:
Use a gentle cleanser Opt for a gentle and non-irritating cleanser suitable for the delicate eye area. When removing makeup or cleansing the skin, it’s important to avoid harsh rubbing, as it can potentially cause damage. Instead, go for gentle sweeping motions using your fingertips or a soft cloth to minimize friction and protect the skin. One of our favourites to help achieve a gentle, thorough clean is the Inspira Cosmetics Triphase Cleanser. This product has a two in one functionality, effortlessly removing makeup at the same time as thoroughly, and gently cleansing.
Use an eye cream Hydration is key to keeping the delicate skin around your eyes plump and minimising those pesky wrinkles. Using a lightweight eye cream or gel specially formulated for the delicate eye area can make a real difference in the long term. Look for products that help to plump and firm, reduce dark circles, and calm the skin to minimise puffiness. If you want to try something that ticks all the boxes, try Inspira Cosmetics Eye Care Cream.
Sheild your eyes from harmful UV rays The sun's harmful UV rays can speed up ageing and damage the fragile skin around your eyes. Don’t be shy to wear sunglasses year-round to shield your eyes from harmful rays. And don’t forget about applying sunscreen every day, even during cloudy weather. One of our special finds when it comes to eye cream, is Inspira Cosmetics Beautiful Eyes. It’s packed with all the goodies gorgeous eyes need to stay looking youthful and vibrant and includes UVA/UVB and IR protection to boot!
Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes Rubbing or pulling at the delicate eye area can lead to irritation, redness, and the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres. If your eyes feel itchy or irritated, use a clean tissue or a soft cloth to gently dab or wipe the area.
Get Enough Sleep Lack of sleep can make your eyes look puffy, give you a dull complexion and enhance dark circles. You need to aim for the right amount of uninterrupted sleep to allow your body and skin to rejuvenate and repair every single night.
Often, we can forget about the delicate eye area, but remembering to have consistent and targeted care for the skin around your eyes will help maintain a bright, radiant, and youthful look now and in the future. 😍
