The Skin Around Your Eyes Is Prone To Ageing Earlier

Your eye area is super delicate, thin and often a little more sensitive than the rest of your face. There’s also less oil glands in this area, so the skin doesn’t produce much sebum (the skin’s natural oil). It’s the first area of your face to show signs of ageing and craves high levels of hydration, which is why it’s common for these signs and symptoms to start showing a little more with dry, cold weather.

Hydrated eyes = youthful eyes

We all know that dry skin is more prone to ageing, which is why it’s so important to keep your skin hydrated. Hydrated skin also appears more supple, with fine lines and wrinkles less visible. Finding an eye cream that’s packed with hydrating ingredients is essential!

Moisturiser VS Eye Cream

If you want to see results with your dark circles, puffiness and crows feet / fine lines & wrinkles, an eye cream is imperative. Face moisturisers aren’t formulated to target these specific concerns, whereas eye creams like Retreatment Botanics Firming Eye Contour Cream contain unique ingredients for eye hydration & anti-aging.
