If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the area around them is a billboard announcing your age. On the one hand, we women just want to age well. On the other, age discrimination in the work place is real, and no matter what age you are, you want to be taken seriously. This is the world we live in.
The skin around your eyes ages faster
I know. Cleanse, tone, moisturize. Why a separate product around the eyes? The skin around your eyes is different than the rest of your face. It’s thinner, more delicate, and less elastic. It’s prone to dryness, puffiness and dark circles, and shows signs of aging faster than other areas of your face. Regular moisturizer applied too close to your eyes can increase puffiness, and cause makeup to settle in the fine lines.
Less is more
Start with a small amount of eye cream on your ring finger, about the size of a piece of rice, then share that small amount between both of your ring fingers. Dot gently to the orbital bone area around your eyes until fully absorbed. The product will be drawn in to the areas that need it. For best results apply morning and night. Depending on the time of year and your particular skin type, you may find one product works better than another, or that once a day is all you need. If you are using a product in a jar, use a spatula. It helps prevent product contamination, and with getting the correct amount. A little goes a long way with all these products.
Frankincense Intense™ Lift Eye Cream
Neal’s Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense™ Lift Eye Cream is scientifically formulated to target skin that is starting to show a lack of firmness, elasticity and definition, including deep lines and wrinkles around the eyes, which are some of the second signs of aging. 71% of women agreed their eye area was visibly lifted based on consumer trials on more than 100 women after 6 weeks. This cream comes in a small jar, has a lightweight texture, and is ophthalmologist tested. Ribose, linseed extract and micro algae help to lift the eye area. Hyaluronic acid helps to plump and hydrate to smooth deep lines and wrinkles around the eyes. A blend of green tea caffeine, turmeric extract, and organic green coffee seed oil, helps to revive the eye area.
