Eye Cream?! When and why!

Squinting and constant movement of the eyes increase the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Fluids collect under the eyes and cause puffiness and dark circles.

Eye creams can address some of these issues. Fine lines and wrinkles come from both sun damage and your skin making less collagen as you age.

To boost collagen I use Kollegene by WOO, a natural food supplement that increases the production of collagen and elastina, and MAXIMIZE eye cream by hanzz&heidii, my favorite brand of natural skincare, made in Switzerland!

Chances are the first wrinkle you see on your face as you get older will be around your eye area. The skin under the eyes is thinner than other skin on your face, and can easily start to look puffy if you are tired or stressed. When a face starts to show age, the eye area usually gets the worst of it -- and the happiest people can get wrinkles from smiling and laughing as easily as unhappy people can get frown lines from furrowing their eyebrows.

Because the eye area is so delicate and easily damaged, using eye cream, avoiding the sun and not smoking are some of the most important things women can do to avoid looking older. Many experts question the importance of eye cream and speculate that it isn't necessary as a separate step in your beauty routine, but here are some reasons why they may not be right in their assertions.

Many moisturizers caution users to avoid the eye area when using. Moisturizers can contain chemicals that may be harmful to the eye area and many contain fragrances and preservatives that can irritate eyes as well. Eye creams are specifically formulated to be used in the eye area, making them safer and more beneficial.

Some eye creams have stronger ingredients and work better than a moisturizer can. Eye creams are also formulated to reduce puffiness and dark circles, while moisturizers need to handle the entire face and are less specialized.

Preventing Later (or Further) Damage:

One of the first signs of aging is puffiness, sagging and wrinkles around the eyes. Using an eye cream, especially one that contains peptides, to target these problems can have a profound impact on further signs of aging and keep the skin around the eyes firmer and smoother.

It is far easier to prevent future damage to your skin than it is to repair it later. Young women without any wrinkles or sagging around their eyes may benefit from an eye cream when they are young so that they don't show as many signs of aging later.

I have been using eye cream since the age of 25 and I am 36.

Over the years I have always stressed the importance of "treating to prevent" by using the correct cosmetics and food supplements for my clients♡
