1. The skin around the eye is 40% thinner
The skin around the eye is a thinner tissue. This is because the skin is only covering the hollow of the eye socket and not any fat or muscle tissue. It doesn’t have the same bounce back and resiliency as other areas of skin due to the fragility.
2. The skin around the eye loses moisture 50% faster
Because the skin around the eye is thinner it is susceptible to drying out quicker. It is less likely to retain moisture, especially, when coming in contact with other products. Products such as shampoos, facial cleansers, and cosmetics can leave the area vulnerable to drying out.
3. The skin around the eye ages faster
The skin around the eye can break down and show age faster than the rest of the face. Due to the fragile nature of the skin around the eye, it is less elastic. As the skin becomes looser and more lax it can cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear.
4. Eye products are specially formulated
Eye creams are specially formulated for the eye area. Some skincare products may contain ingredients that are too strong for the eyes. To avoid stinging, burning and inflammation from harsher products use a cream specifically formulated product for the eye area.
5. Eyes have different skincare needs
Due to the delicate nature of the skin around the eye, there are specific skincare concerns such as puffiness, dryness, fine line and dark circles.
