Why Can’t I Use My Facial
Moisturizer Around My Eyes?

It would seem only logical to use just your facial moisturiser, doesn’t it? But as we discussed last time, this area has the thinnest skin on the body and is also the most sensitive.

If you’ve ever experienced stinging, burning, or watery eyes after applying a facial moisturizer around your eye area, then you already know what we’re talking about. It’s just too irritating!

Only ophthalmologists tested and approved eye cremes should be applied to this delicate area. Just like facial moisturizers, eye cremes were created to tackle specific problems like dark circles, puffiness and to reduce fine eye lines and wrinkles.

But there is another reason to steer clear of heavy facial moisturizers. Have you ever experienced little bumps around your eyes? These are called milia, skin cells that are trapped in small pockets near the surface of the skin.

This happens because the eye area has very few oil glands. If your facial products are too rich, they can greatly contribute to this nasty little problem. Very hard and seed-like, milia are also very difficult to remove.

That’s why using products especially formulated for this sensitive area just makes sense. It’s the key to preventing this unsightly problem.

Aren’t All Eye Cremes Pretty Much The Same?

Aren’t All Eye Cremes Pretty Much The Same?

The short answer, no way! That’s like saying all skincare is the same. Can you imagine creating one product for oily, dry, or combination skin? Pretty silly, huh? That’s why there are different formulations of eye creams to meet your specific needs.

Some are specially formulated for dry or sensitive skin. Others smooth fine lines, minimize dark circles and reduce puffiness. Some eye cremes will even attack all of those problems at once.

Talk to us about what you want to achieve and we can show you the best formulation for your needs. The important thing to remember is this: eye cremes must be lightweight and glide on easily.

Since most of us wear foundation and eye make-up, applying a heavier facial moisturizer near your eye area can cause your make-up to run. Eye creams are lighter and melt right into the skin preventing raccoon eyes.

But what if your eye area is dry? Can you use oil around your eyes? The answer here is a cautious yes. Ophthalmologist tested and approved oils specially formulated for this area are best.

These are far less likely to clog the delicate tissue causing milia, or white bumps. But how do you know which eye creme is right for you? We can help you there.

What’s As Thin As An Eggshell? By Beauty Salon Colac – Call Us On 03 5232 2448

There’s no doubt about it; eyes are the windows to your soul. With just a glance, your eyes show the world how you feel.

Constantly on duty, your eye area is in charge of literally hundreds of expressions and micro expressions. And yet, did you know that the skin around your eyes is as thin as an eggshell? That’s thin!

In fact, it’s the thinnest skin on your body. And unfortunately, it gets even thinner as we age…and more dehydrated…and more irritated. You get the picture.

With very few oil glands, your eyes will eventually show dryness from repeated expressions. That’s why you can be prone to dark circles, rough texture, fine lines and puffiness.

So give those babies some extra TLC! Check out our products specifically targeted for that delicate eye area. These potent products include antioxidant vitamins such as vitamin A, B complex, C, D, and Beta Carotene to help fight nasty free radicals.

And don’t forget to exfoliate your eye area. But please, talk to us first! Regular facial exfoliants are too rough for this sensitive area. We have gentle, effective products that will sweep away dead skin without brute force.

Combine our home care products with professional treatments for the eyes, including monthly facials.But also consider services like skin needling or IPL to give Mother Nature a nudge a nudge in a smooth direction.

Whatever you choose to do, we will be right there with you. It’s our mission to keep you looking beautiful always!

How Do I Pick The Right Professional Eye Creme For Me? By Beauty Salon Colac – Call Us On 03 5232 2448

The best way to pick the right eye creme is to ask yourself, “What do I want to achieve with it?” Do you want to minimize dark circles? Puffiness? Do you want to prevent future damage or fight the wrinkles you have?

You must also consider your skin type. If the skin beneath your eyes is oily, puffy or you are acne-prone, you will want a gel. A creme will just be too rich.

Although there are no hard and fast rules about eye cremes, it’s safe to say there are three basic types for you to consider:

Day cremes -These enhance the appearance of your eyes by de-puffing and reducing the dark circles.

Night Cremes -These help the skin repair and prevent damage while you are sleeping. Night cremes often contain retinol or AHA’s (alpha hydroxy acids), which work best at night during the skin renewal process.

Standard Eye Creme -These are very emollient, providing needed moisture. They do not contain intense wrinkle fighting ingredients or de-puffing agents.

All eye cremes must provide some degree of moisture. They should be very mild since this area is so sensitive to irritation and contain no fragrance.

Just remember, any given brand can have at least two types of eye cremes and as many as six! That’s why it’s important to discuss with us your particular concerns and needs.

Just like facial moisturizers, anti-aging face crèmes should NOT be used around the eyes. The eye area is too thin and too sensitive to handle anti-aging cremes meant for the face.

That’s why we have anti-aging eye cremes. These are formulated to work with the delicate eye area. And that’s fabulous because you never want to leave this area to Mother Nature! Anti-aging eye cremes help to produce a lifting effect with your eyes.

How? By producing collagen and new skin cell growth to help heal the wrinkle. As with other eye cremes, it’s best to pat the product around the eye to avoid tugging.

Anti-aging eye cremes, just like anti-aging facial cremes, are most effective when applied before bedtime. This is when the skin goes through its renewal process. That means the anti-aging ingredients can work far more effectively than during busy daytime hours.

The key here is to make sure the eye area has enough moisture as well as the anti-aging properties to effectively do its job. Here’s where we can be of tremendous help to you. You won’t find that kind of quality in a drugstore!

In fact, with professional eye cremes, you’ll notice right away that our ingredients are more pure. That means better results!
