Fact: The skin around our peepers are ten times thinner than the rest of our face. Also fact: And because of that, it is the first area that shows signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles. What this means: using the proper skincare products for your eye area is crucial and if you have always thought a simple cream is enough, it might not actually be the case. Our skin always needs an extra boost of vitamins and nutrients to keep it healthy. And while we love our sheet masks, it’s key to incorporate eye masks to our regime too.
Many of us do not get the recommended number of hours of sleep (late night outs, overtime at work to meet a deadline — we get it) and on top of that, we are constantly faced with stress from other external factors (read: pollution). Being exposed to such aggressors may cause us to get eye bags, puffy and tired under eyes, wrinkles and fine lines. Our first solution to that? Eye creams. But at times, a simple eye cream just won’t cut it, which is why we need to use eye masks.
These eye masks (just like their other counterpart, sheet masks) are packed with a string of nutritional ingredients to help combat various under eye skin concerns, hydrate and plump up skin.
