We’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo by learning about how to use our eye cream? That’s right! One of the beauty industry’s most trusted brands, Kiehl’s, was kind enough to share with us their Creamy Eye Treatment With Natural Avocado Oil. And although avocados are the reason we can’t stop digging into our guacamole, it is probably one of the most hydrating ingredients for our sensitive and delicate eye area.
Avocados have been around since 10,00 BC and have been used by the Native Americans to treat ailments such as dysentery and toothache pain. It has also been used as a nourishing facial treatment for dry skin with its semi-fatty omgea-3 oils, antioxidants, lecithin and vitamins A, B and D to help restore the natural moisture barrier of the skin.
“The thinnest and most vulnerable skin on the face is the eyelid area, which extends from just beneath the brow to the upper cheek. Because of its nature, it is prone to aging from squinting and rubbing, tends to collect fluid causing puffiness and is sensitive to heavier products,” shares Dr. Sherry Hsiung, Kiehl’s Consulting Dermatologist.
“For these reasons, a specifically formulated eye cream is essential to prevent and treat the signs of aging for a more bright, youthful a appearance.”
Eye Cream Facts
Facial moisturizers and other anti-aging products are typically too potent or not formulated for the delicate eye area.
Due to the lack of natural oil glands and moisture in the eye area, experts agree that an eye cream should be the first step in any anti-aging protocol.
The #1 consumer mistake with eye creams is applying too much, thinking more is better.
Eye gels are better for acne-prone skin. Emollient eye creams work better under makeup.
Use the ring finger to apply the product because it’s the weakest and least likely to pull or stretch the delicate skin around the eyes.
Aging in the eye area is not strictly associated with wrinkles and fine lines. Puffy eyes and texture changes due to dehydrated skin also can make skin appear aged and tired.
