What Eye Care Is Best for Me
Look to the power of natural skincare to enhance your beautiful eyes.
"The eyes are the window to the soul." The words of Hildegard of Bingen still ring true today. After all, a quick look at our eyes can tell someone a lot about how we are feeling and what we are thinking. When we’re tired or stressed, our eyes often give us away – whether we like it or not. They may not be as bright as normal and the area around them may look a little worse for wear. And, if we get too much sun or don’t get enough hydration, this may be reflected in wrinkles, rings, or dark shadows around our eyes. Luckily, our beauty experts at Susanne Kaufmann are here to help you get that twinkle back in your eye.
How to Find Eye Care Suitable for Your Skin?
The secret to effective eye care is choosing the right product. You need to match the product to the current condition of your skin and consider the optimal outcome.
What Are the Best Ingredients for the Eye Area?
Hydration is key. Natural moisturisers are the best way to hydrate the skin, look out for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and evening primrose oil. Substances containing lipids (think squalane and vitamin E) gives the skin’s barriers in this sensitive area a boost and minimises the effect of fine lines caused by dryness. It’s also important to strengthen the collagen structure around the eyes, particularly to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Ectoin and ubiquinone are equally effective options here.
The powerful combinations of natural ingredients in our eye creams and fluids increase the elasticity of delicate skin while unleashing a soothing effect and reducing puffiness. Extra substances and beneficial oils can further nourish the eye area, depending on your skin type.
How to Apply Eye Cream?
We recommend using our eye products in the morning and evening, just after you have cleansed your skin. The lipid-based ingredients in our eye-care products ensure they won't end up seeping into your eyes - this makes them the perfect base for your makeup as well.
If you’re wondering how much to use, we recommend a pea-sized amount of cream, fluid, or gel for both eyes. Use your little finger to gently pat the product underneath your eyes, moving from the bridge of your nose to the cheekbone. When applying products to your upper eyelid, use a gentle sweeping motion. Placing your eye cream or fluid in the fridge will give a bonus cooling effect.
