The Eye Contour

The contour of the eye is known precisely as the periocular area. Compared with other areas of the face, we observe that the eye contour is distinguished by several characteristics:

o The skin around the eyes is clearly thinner (0.3 mm).
o The number of hair follicles, sebaceous glands and eccrine glands (sweat) is much lower.
o The elastic and collagen fibers present in the matrix of the dermis are numerically few in number.
o Fat under the skin is present in much smaller amounts.
o Lymphatic / blood circulation in the eye area is quite slow.
Precisely because of its distinctive characteristics, the skin around the eyes seems very susceptible to stagnation of interstitial fluids and blood; Furthermore, this area is clearly drier and more permeable than other areas of the face. All this translates into a natural predisposition towards bags, dark circles and fine lines.

Regardless of skin type, the critical eye area always requires a very delicate cosmetic treatment. Whether it's dry, oily, or mixed, it doesn't matter - this area is always extremely sensitive and as such requires a lot of attention from the subject. Remember, in fact, that the skin around the eyes tends to rebel more often against physical and chemical insults than other areas of the face. Without forgetting, in addition, that this area is much more exposed to wrinkles, crow's feet and typical age imperfections: just to postpone the manifestation of such imperfections (inevitable) as long as possible, the anti-aging treatment aimed at the eye area It should start between the ages of 28 and 30.

To promote the health of the critical eye area, it is essential, first, to protect the eyes from environmental pollution and minor irritations related to repeated applications of makeup products: then apply sunglasses and moisturizing and elastic creams. This area, in fact, needs to be kept as hydrated as possible by applying for several days specific products with a deeply hydrating and nourishing action.

However, an ideal product for makeup around the eyes should not be excessively oily: light emulsions, serums and gels enriched with active ingredients with regenerative, nourishing, antioxidant and anti-aging properties should be preferred. In addition, due to the fragility and sensitivity of the area, eye contour products must also be enriched with substances that stimulate microcirculation and sunscreen filters to minimize the risks of photoaging.
