Unique skin care products and serums provides protection in the more delicate areas of the face – the eye contour, lips and neck, reduces expression lines and balances the skin.
Not everyone needs a product specifically for the eye area. For some, a well-formulated facial moisturiser can provide the same benefits. Whether or not you need an eye cream depends on two things:
If the skin around your eyes is drier than the rest of your face, or
If you have skin concerns around you eyes that your moisturiser isn’t formulated to tackle.
Of course, many people simply prefer a dedicated eye-care product, and want to know exactly what to look for.
Skin-replenishing ingredients are naturally abundant in your skin, before age and sun exposure begin to interfere. Therefore, these are all-skin-types, safe-to-use-around-the-eyes ingredients. Some of the most effective are peptides, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid, which hydrate to improve the appearance of wrinkles and leave skin visibly firmer and smoother.
Skin-restoring ingredients nourish skin, combat dullness, and—you guessed it—reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ceramidesand peptidesare also included in this category, along with retinoland niacinamide, two proven anti-ageing powerhouses that “train” skin to look and feel younger.
Antioxidants defend skin against the visible effects of pollution and environmental damage, and help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The skin on the neck, although slightly different from the skin on the face, benefits from largely the same ingredients that are included in facial products. This is why it’s often recommended to bring your moisturisers and treatments down from the face all the way to the neck and décolleté during application.
If you care for your neck daily starting at a young age, you should wind up with far fewer neck issues than your peers. But if you skipped out and are starting to see sagging or lines in your neck area, there’s no harm in starting better skincare now!
Plump, hydrated lips can totally elevate your appearance. Rosy, healthy lips frame your face and indicate youthfulness and vitality—and isn’t that what everyone’s looking to convey?
Exfoliating the lips is particularly important in treating chapping. If your lips are chapped, the thick layers of dead skin on the surface won’t allow hydrating balms to penetrate and fix the issue. As a result, you’ll just see more chapping, even if you’re using lip balm. Why? Most lip balms on the market create a barrier rather than hydrating, merely sealing on the dry skin underneath and failing to actually remove or treat it.
Hydration, of course, is key. Hydrating your lips helps them resist adverse weather conditions and sun exposure. Moist lips also resist chapping, whether due to illness, a dry climate, or sunburn. Ensure you’re using lip products with ingredients that deeply moisturise the lip area.
