The eyes are often said to be the windows to the soul – they reveal our emotions and how we feel. However, they are also the first feature to show signs of ageing. Eye bags, dark eye circles and crow’s feet robs youthfulness and radiance from your skin, causing us to appear older and wearier.
What Causes Eye Bags, Dark Eye Circles and Crow’s Feet?
With age and maturity, collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid decline substantially in our skin’s composition; these are the components that keep our skin smooth and supple. In young skin, a regular arrangement of dermal tissue and plentiful supply of collagen and elastin, contribute to the building block like structure in our skin, making it appears even and feels firm. Over time, the internal ageing process predetermined by our genes together with oxidative stress – such as sunlight exposure – starts to affect the way skin looks.
The skin around the eye area is thinner and more delicate than anywhere else. Continual free radical assault breaks down collagen and elastin fibers that help keep skin smooth and firm. Combine this with decades of squinting in the sun, late nights, lack of sleep and inadequate environmental protection and you have the tell-tale signs of eye area aging.
The most prominent eye area concerns include wrinkles (crow’s feet), puffiness (under eye bags), dark circles due to hyperpigmentation, and skin sensitivity due to dehydration. When treating these issues, it is important to take care not to use anything that will cause irritation to the delicate eye area.
Our anti-ageing eye treatment facial occurs in the following steps:
- First, we prepare your skin for sensory cleansing using waterproof makeup remover and a light texture cleanser to gently remove any makeup while taking care of the delicate skin around your eye areas.
- Next, we will carry out a gentle exfoliation.
- Thirdly, our therapist will carry out a special massage with an eye concentrate or serum based on your needs, that will help boost microcirculation to reduce puffiness, dark circles and fine lines.
- The treatment is completed with an eye mask that promotes the absorption of the active ingredients, giving an exceptional radiance boost to your eyes.
