Let’s get down to business. Did you know that the first signs of skin ageing start to appear around the eyes?  These are the so-called crow's feet, tiny wrinkles that appear on our eye contour. 

Why do the first wrinkles appear around the eyes?

It’s pretty simple, the skin around the eyes is 5 times finer than that of the rest of the body, so it is a delicate area and the early ageing signs appear faster. But hey, let’s not talk about ageing as a bad thing, because it isn’t, let’s just embrace and take special care of the areas that are more fragile. 

Here is why the eye area is more delicate:

  • The eye contour tends to dehydrate much more easily than other areas of the face, accelerating the appearance of wrinkles and signs of skin ageing.

  • The eye contour has a tendency to have puffiness, which is why dark circles, bags, drooping eyelids and expression lines can appear.

  • Very often, the eye contour area lacks elasticity due to a loss of collagen, a protein that prevents sagging, wrinkles and other signs of skin ageing, which decrease after you are 25. 

Early ageing signs can be seen in the eyes, but hey, this is not alarming, wrinkles show where smiles have been, so instead of treating it as a thing that should be at all times avoided, let’s just give extra love to the areas that need it the most. 

The eyes never lie! So if you have any of the puffiness, dark circles, expressions lines, and you want to take care of them, this is for you:

  • Provides extra care and smoothes the eye area
  • Firms, hydrates eyelids
  • Minimises dynamic and static expression lines
  • Helps with puffiness
  • Prevents uneven pigmentation
  • Brightens the gaze

Let’s talk about specific results:

Treats uneven pigmentation

Reduces spots by up to 54%, as well as melanin in hyperpigmented areas.

Reduces puffiness and dark circles

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory action, it reduces puffiness and dark circles under the eyes and gives a feeling of freshness, giving the area a rested and relaxed appearance. 

Acts as an eyelid lifter

Raises the eyelid by up to 27%, producing a lifting effect that reduces the surface area of wrinkles by 60%.

How to get rid of bags under the eyes

  • Sleep 8 hours. 
  • Apply sunscreen, always. 
  • Avoid smoking or drinking 
  • Water. Water. Water. A lot.
  • Keep the area hydrated with a good eye contour 

Here's how to use one

Apply it to clean skin during your AM-PM routine, after cleansing but before moisturising.

  1. Apply one drop of the eye contour to your clean fingers and glide the product through the eye area. 
  2. Spread the product all over the eye contour area by gently tapping it and letting it absorb completely.

You are all set! Give your eye area extra love with natural products, good for you, great for the planet. Oh and remember: The eyes are the window to the soul, keep them extra happy!
