Do you really need an eye cream?
The skin around the eyes is thinner and is the first to show signs of aging. This thinness makes it more delicate and prone to dryness and sensitivity. Every time you move your eyes whether you are smiling, squinting, blinking you are using muscles around your eyes. Over time, factors like dryness, repetitive muscle contractions, loss of collagen and elastin lead to the formation of small expression lines, commonly knowns as crow’s feet. Smoking and exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can also contribute and worsen wrinkle formation.
Fair skin and thin skin around the eye area can make dark circles look more prominent. Dark circles can also be the result of increased pigmentation, thinning skin that reveals blue and purple veins, or hollowness of the under-eye area from fat loss that can create a shadow and deter good blood circulation.
Incorporating an eye cream into your daily skincare routine can help minimize the appearance of these wrinkles as well as tackle other skin concerns like dryness, puffiness, dark circles, and pigmentation. The sooner the better! It is easier to prevent signs of aging than to correct them. We recommend investing in an eye cream from the age of 25.
What ingredients should you look for in an eye cream?
Some key ingredients to look for are caffeine, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides. Caffeine is renowned for its depuffing by constricting the blood vessels and reducing inflammation. While peptides boost collagen production, making your skin plumper and more youthful.
Since the skin around your eyes has very few active oil glands, hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, squalane, and ceramides are essential for drawing in and sealing in the moisture.

Can you treat wrinkles around the mouth?
Wrinkles occur when the skin loses collagen and is more prominent around thinner areas of the face, including the lip area. Factors like smoking, sun damage, and menopause can increase your risk of developing wrinkles around the mouth.
There are different types of mouth wrinkles, namely: smile lines, marionette lines and lipstick lines. To treat wrinkles around the mouth we recommend using a targeted serum that has a 3-phase lifting effect to stimulate collagen production, plump the skin from the inside and provide intense hydration.
