It is said that “the eyes are the mirror of the soul” and that a look tells us more than you might imagine. However, few people realize that the eye area is very sensitive, and the skin in this place is the thinnest on the whole body. The thickness of the skin around the eyelids and around the eyes is only about 0.5 millimeters. That’s why we should pay more attention to it and take care of it properly!
How does the skin around the eyes age?
The thickness of the skin of the eyelids and the eye area is only 0.5 mm. Made of the epidermis and dermis, it contains a small amount of subcutaneous tissue. There are no sweat glands around the eyes, while the number of sebaceous glands is very small. These biological factors make it exceptionally thin, delicate and hydrated.
As a result of the constant movement of the eyeballs, a weakening of biological protection and the negative influence of external factors, the first signs of aging appear near the eyes. We are talking here primarily about dry skin, unevenness and wrinkles, including the so-called. Wrinkled lines around the eyes. Moreover, the skin on the eyelids quickly relaxes, making the signs of aging more visible – says Dr. asukasz Preibisz of Preibisz SkinDoctor.
Other skin problems around the eyes include:
- swelling of the eyelids and the accumulation of water in the tissues, mainly due to excess salt and problems with blood circulation,
- swelling of the lower eyelid, caused mainly by a decrease in the elasticity of the skin, for example as a result of fat deposition under the eyes;
- Dark circles under the eyes and dark circles, appear in the absence of adequate sleep, fatigue, and improper diet. bags and dark circles can be an innate feature – the thinner and more sensitive the skin, the more blood vessels shine through it, giving the effect of dark skin around the eyes;
In this case, how do you take care of the eye area to reduce and slow down the aging process and give the eyes a radiant appearance?
Appropriate home care
As mentioned earlier – the skin around the eyes is thin and thin, so it is relatively easy to dry out and irritate. – A lot of people ignore proper eye area care – and it’s not just about not using creams meant for this area. Vigorous rubbing during makeup removal, inaccurate makeup removal and lack of proper hydration are the main sins of my patients … – says Dr. Bribes.
Properly selected at-home care is the necessary basis for maintaining a good condition of the skin around the eyes! The basis is to moisturize it – inside and out. Drinking at least 2 liters of water per day is a must. It is similar to using a separate product intended to care for this area. – In this case, the following applies: “The fewer ingredients, the better.” The main task of cosmetics under the eyes is to protect the hydrolipidic layer. Among the active ingredients, we should focus on the low concentration of retinol, vitamin C, peptides or ceramides and other antioxidants.. Let’s not forget the daily application of the SPF50 filter to the eye area too – Dr. ukasz Preibisz suggests.
Certainly, you can not skip wearing sunglasses, which will mainly protect you from excessively squinting your eyes, and thus – the formation of wrinkles.
However, there are times this is not enough. In this case, aesthetic medicine is useful. Here are the most effective eye treatments to watch out for!
