Why does the eye area age so quickly and what can be done to prevent, minimise and cure these ageing signs?
Dr Maureen Allem from Skin, Body & Health Renewal responds:
“The skin around the eye ages more quickly than the rest of the face because it is considerably thinner than the rest of the face, and it is an area of a lot of dynamic movement… So it “wears out” quicker, if you will.
It is important to look after the eye area in the following ways. Daily use of SPF around the eye area is vital. Hydration around the eye area is also very important. And lastly, treatments around the eye area are very effective, and there are LOADS of treatment options depending on what your goals, needs and budget are. The sooner you start the better!”
