It’s important to start taking care of the eye contour area before the first wrinkles or expression lines start to appear, and to continue throughout all the stages of your life.
To protect your eyes at any age -30s, 40s, or 50s- here are some key Aromatherapy based ingredients, you should look out for in your skincare products.
At the age of 30, the first signs of time start to show, particularly in the vulnerable eye contours. Fine expression lines appear, especially around the eyes, the brow furrow and the “laugh lines.” To combat these signs of time, our experts recommend Retinol based ingredients (our experts prefer a plant based one, such as Bio-retinol) that fill and plump up the first expression lines, boost micro-circulation and smooth micro-tensions in the eye area. Our experts also recommend plant active ingredients that act on dark circles, hydration and protect against harsh external elements and pollution, such as Hibiscus Extract.
From the age of 40, the skin starts to lose its firmness and elasticity, it becomes dry and wrinkles become deeper. It’s important to use ingredients firm and target wrinkles, such as Wheat Proteins and Corn Extract, which provide an instant “lifting effect.” Iris Essential Oil is also great for this age group because it acts on lackluster skin while also helping to retain the skin’s moisture reserves.
From the age of 50, wrinkles become more pronounced and the skin continues to lose its tone and suppleness, while also increasing in sensitivity. To address these concerns, our experts recommend treatments that include Essential Oils of Iris, Frankincense, and Immortelle to combat these more visible wrinkles around the eyes, reduce dark circles, firm, smoothe, “life,” and nourish the skin intensely.
