How To Improve The Skin Around Your Eyes
Today I am talking about the area that is often a topic of conversation in the clinic and very often an area of concern for many people.
The eye area.
The skin around the eyes is noticeably thinner than the rest of the face. It’s delicate, refined and actually can be as thin as 0.5mm. It’s where we tend to have a lot of expressions, so when we smile, frown, and squint, we tend to create lines around this area.
As we age, we obviously get that collagen breakdown, the quality of our collagen isn’t as good, and these lines eventually become lines of rest.
As well as the rest of the face, the eye area is exposed to UV daily.
The following are my top tips for treating and protecting this area:
1 Always Wear Sunscreen
With many old sunscreens, you typically can’t apply them right up to the eye. However, more modern sunscreens make it possible for you to apply them over the eyelids to ensure that area is nicely protected. It’s also a great idea to wear sunglasses when possible, which will give you that extra protection.
The sun is one of the main factors in ageing on the skin, so it’s essential to use sunscreen to prevent this ageing from occurring.
2 Use Products Specifically Formulated For This Area
Compared to the rest of the face, the region around the eyes has a highly distinctive skin type. As a result, the treatment of this region requires the use of distinct formulations and active ingredients in order to avoid causing any unwanted damage or discomfort.
This means you need the invest in products which are suitable for the eyes, which will prevent the look of ageing from around the eyes.
3 Massage The Areas Around Your Eyes
This area, especially the under the eye, can be very immobile; therefore, we get a slower circulation here, which can cause a buildup of fluid and darkness under the eyes.
Giving this area under the eyes a light, gentle massage every day is always advisable. Doing it in the morning can really wake those eyes up and help stimulate that circulation and lymphatic system, helping drain away any fluid that may build up in that area.

One last thing, we have an exciting new treatment launching next week. You will find all about it in next Friday’s email.
We can specifically target this area as well as the neck, which is also very delicate. Myself and Kayleigh did our training on Wednesday this week, and immediately waking up the next day, my eyes looked better. They felt less hollow on the under-eye area and not as dark.
I tend to be quite vascular under there, so can look darker or almost take on a blue tone. I always have to wear concealer in this area.
Thursday morning, waking up, I just didn’t need quite as much.
