How to take care of your eye contour area?

The eye contour means the skin around the eyes, which is very thin and delicate. It is often in this area that the first visible signs of ageing appear, as do signs of fatigue: dark circles and puffiness reveal a lack of sleep or high stress levels and affect the brightness of the eyes and the complexion. There are many treatments designed for these eye contour problems which can improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as puffiness and dark circles. Discover the ideal eye contour skincare routine and the expert steps you can use to take care of any red eye contour areas.

Wrinkles around the eye contour area are caused by a combination of repeated muscle movements and skin ageing.

For best results

Massage the eye contour

Wrinkles around the eye contour area are caused by a combination of repeated muscle movements and skin ageing. Puffiness is created by an accumulation of lymph under the eyes, a phenomenon that increases with age. Red eye contour and dark circles are caused by the stagnation of blood pigment under the eye. For each of these issues, massage can help. It will have a beneficial effect on dark circles, red eye contour, and puffiness. Gently massage the area with your fingertips from the inside working outwards, not forgetting the eyelid and even the eyebrows.


Moisturise

Hydration plays a key role in facial beauty. Drinking enough fluids ensures good blood and lymphatic circulation, which is essential for a smooth and radiant eye contour. When the skin is dehydrated, fine dehydration lines can appear around the eye contour area. All the more reason to moisturise regularly!


Use a dedicated eye contour product

The eye contour area needs care, just like the skin on the face. This skin is fine and delicate, so it has to be protected and moisturised daily. Use a targeted product - for example an antioxidant eye contour cream - on this area in the morning and evening, and store it in a cool place to benefit from a cooling effect when you apply it.


Remove your eye make-up carefully

In the evening, thoroughly remove your eye make-up. Concealer, mascara, eye shadow...it all has to go. The skin around the eyes needs to be cleansed in order to breathe, regenerate and benefit fully from the active ingredients in your eye contour product.


Be careful in the sun

Too much exposure to the sun, especially without sun protection, accelerates skin ageing. Protecting the face from UV rays, especially fragile areas, limits the emergence of visible signs of ageing.

What eye contour skincare routine should you use?

Because it is very thin and drier than the rest of the face, the eye contour area needs to be moisturised with specific products, such as antioxidant eye contour creams.

Any questions?


Why is the eye contour area affected by wrinkles?

The skin around the eyes is very thin, very vulnerable and drier than the rest of the face. Dehydration lines can appear very early, and irritation can lead to a red eye contour area. The eye contour area is also constantly moving, the repetition and intensity of which weakens the skin's support fibres, causing wrinkles to appear. The dermis in this area is also low in elastin and collagen, making it a particularly sensitive area for skin ageing.

What are the different types of wrinkles around the eyes?

Crow's feet appear at the corner of the eyes, frown lines form between the eyebrows, and under-eye wrinkles emerge under the lower eyelid. Fine, shallow dehydration lines can also appear, caused by a lack of moisture in this area.

How do eye bags form?

A lack of skin support fibres can lead to sagging skin on the lower eyelids. With age and behavioural factors, lymphatic micro-circulation deteriorates and drainage becomes less efficient, which leads to swelling.

What are the different types of dark circles?

We distinguish between blue and brown circles. The former are due to stagnating (purple) blood pigment in this area of the face where blood micro-circulation is more difficult. The latter are the consequence of the significant breakdown of proteins and lipids that accumulate under the eye, most often caused by behavioural factors. Some skin types are more prone to red eye contour and dark circles due to their pigmentation.
