The eye contour area is a circle that reaches from the inner corner of your eye to the outer corner below the end of your eyebrow. It includes the area underneath your eye as well as up to your brow bone. Caring correctly for this area of your face and enhancing its natural beauty will make you stand out from the rest.

The most delicate area on the face

The skin around the eye is nearly twice as thin as the rest of the skin on your face. It also is in perpetual movement and produces less moisture than the rest of your face, so it is the first skin to sag and wrinkle. Therefore, this area requires extremely careful care. Packing a lot of makeup on the eye contour area and then failing to remove it and care for the skin in this area will result in rapidly diminishing beauty. High-quality moisturizing eye contour creams can help reduce the effects of ageing.

Expression lines, crows feet and wrinkles

With age, skin can start to look less firm and fine lines and wrinkles appear more visible. The delicate eye area is particularly susceptible to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (i.e., crow’s feet or expression lines) these are due to the constant muscle movement in the face. There are 43 muscles in the face. These muscles are in constant movement throughout the day helping us to show expressions and emotions, but as a result producing expression lines and wrinkles.

Dark circles and puffiness

Dark circles in the eye contour area come from two sources: concentration of blood and lymphatic vessels near the surface that can cause bluish shadows, and waste or fluid that was not successfully eliminated during the night, which usually causes “bags” or puffiness under the eyes. Certain eye contour creams will help with the draining and circulation. To apply an eye gel/cream it is advisable to follow the manufacturers instruction, however using a tapping motion starting from the inner corner of the upper eyelid all the way out and around to the lower lid is always recommended.
