Habit Hack: A Specific Guide To Getting the most out of your Eye Cream
Why do you need a specific product for the skin around your eyes?
The skin around your eyes is more fragile than the rest of your face and body. It's much thinner and has few oil glands to hydrate it, so it's subject to tons of micro-movements and facial expressions daily. Because of these movements, the skin around your eyes is the first to show signs of ageing. Eye creams are formulated to target the delicate skin around the eyes, deliver moisture, and lessen the look of bags, puffiness, and uneven tone while keeping the area nourished and supple.
- Reduces puffiness in the eye area
- Fights off the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
