CARING FOR SENSITIVE UNDER-EYE SKIN

Your eyes can be your biggest beauty asset. Their expressiveness allows you to connect with others and they are often seen as "the window to the soul." However, the delicate skin under your eyes can be one of the first places to show signs of ageing as well as stress and fatigue. Using products designed specifically for the under-eye area is essential to reduce puffy bags, dark circles and lines and wrinkles. A few simple techniques can help you glow with youth.

WHY DOES UNDER-EYE SKIN REQUIRE SPECIAL CARE?

Skin under the eyes is much thinner than skin on the rest of the face and more sensitive to harsh chemicals, UV rays, and the environment. It also thins faster than other skin. Because thin skin loses its elasticity more quickly, the skin under the eyes is one of the first places to show signs of ageing. As a result, under-eye contour requires particular care and attention.
