Many women don’t know that the area around the eyes is highly sensitive and needs to be protected even more than the face from the sun.
Surely you have not thought about protecting the area around the eyes from UVA, UVB rays and infrared rays of the sun. However, it is necessary to protect this area from its harmful effects according to experts, it is as important as the rest of your face, or even more… Of course, you should choose those sun creams and sunscreens that do not irritate the area and, most importantly, that they do not sting your eyes because they can become very uncomfortable after applying them.
Remember that you can find plenty of brands that sell special sunscreens for the eye contour.
One of the main reasons why you need to start protecting your eye contour from the sun is the wrinkles. The sun deteriorates your skin, and imagine the skin around your eyes how delicate it is since it is 10 times thinner than the rest of your face.
Protecting your eye contour has to become mandatory after a certain age, however, you should start at an early age in order to avoid the appearance of premature wrinkles. There are several products specially designed for this, so it is not a rarity.
This area of the skin is much more delicate than the rest, it needs to be cared for more carefully.
In fact, the area around your eyes has less collagen and elastin. In addition to this, it is an area that allows you to quickly notice the effects of fatigue and accumulated stress, as well as dark spots and wrinkles.
Also keep in mind the use of sunglasses, since it doesn’t only respond to fashion trends. Although most people just use them as an accessory, sunglasses also provide good protection for your eye contour and visual health.
As your eye contour area is much more sensitive that the rest of your face, consider using product with SPF for the whole year and only in the summer.
Most of the eye concealers and eye creams already come with between 10 and 15 SPF protection, which is good for the winter, however, 30 or even 50 is what it should be used in the summer.
