I get asked daily, do I need to use an eye cream? Simply "YES".
The skin around the eye is very delicate, therefore more likely to show signs of ageing such as sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. The orbital area is also prone to dark circles, puffiness, and a general appearance of tiredness that may be the result of genetics, lifestyle, or other environmental factors.
This is why it is so important to treat the eye area with care. Remember, prevention is the key here! Starting to care and protect the eye area at an early age is going to help with premature ageing.
Why should I use an eye cream?
The eye area lacks certain oil glands that help keep the skin moist, so we need to use hydrating products and also incorporate antioxidant ingredients to assist in retaining collagen in the skin.
The skin around the eye area is being constantly used with all our facial expressions: smiling, squinting, frowning. All of those lead to wrinkles in the eye area. So looking for collagen producing ingredients will help keep these at bay.

Can I use my face cream as an eye cream?
Many facial products contain ingredients that irritate the eye area, so using a separate eye cream is advised to help protect this very delicate area of your face.
