Bags, dark spots and wrinkles

Taming the contour of your eyes

The skin around your eyes is the thinnest on your face... and the most active, with 10,000 blinks and contractions per day, so fatigue and aging affect that area first. To fight back, the skin around your eyes needs specific care. Here's a quick guide to help.

PRECISION PRODUCTS

The golden rule: use products designed specifically for the contours of your eyes. While helping drain this area, they also target crow's feet, wrinkles, redness, dark spots and bags. And their formulas, which aren't as rich as face creams, are absorbed easily so there's less risk of them running into your eyes. Say goodbye to tears, itching and swelling! Make sure you have eye-contour products close at hand. No matter what your age, they're a must-have in your beauty-care routine.

Think serum!

This cocktail of highly concentrated active ingredients is the perfect beauty aperitif: apply a small amount before other products to maximize their effectiveness. Often created with a complex base of innovative compounds, serums combine moisturizing and revitalizing ingredients (hyaluronic acid, retinol, argireline, etc.) that plump your skin, stimulate its regeneration and counteract fading caused by lack of sleep, aging or pollution. It's a panacea for tired eyes!

What next?

Cream! Applying it once is not enough. Like serum, creams should be used morning and night. For daytime use, choose a nourishing formula that stands up to wear and tear. Before bed, use a complex that helps repair cells and limits water retention. If your eyes are itchy, tear up easily or are affected by problems like eczema, choose a hypoallergenic formula for sensitive skin.

Pro tip: Are your eyes swollen when you wake up? Keep your care products in the fridge: colder temperatures stimulate blood flow, so they help decongest the contours of your eyes quickly. That's why certain products come with cold, metal applicators.

THE SECRET WEAPON…

Not getting enough sleep? Do you rub your eyes vigorously when removing your mascara? When your eyes scream SOS, get intensive treatment with patches. Infused with smoothing and soothing ingredients, patches fade signs of fatigue, inflammation, dehydration and fine lines. They’re also super refreshing! Just leave them on your eyes for about 20 minutes!

Pro tip: To make the patches “super powerful”, you can put them under your eyes after having applied your cream or your serum (or both!). The active ingredients in the patches will boost the effet of the other products and give a quicker, more efficient result.

PROPER APPLICATION

Whenever you're applying products around your eyes, you should always use care. After washing your hands and face, apply your products by tapping them onto the bony areas then spreading them from the inner corners to the top of the cheekbone. This helps the products penetrate your skin more easily while stimulating blood flow: a must for this poorly irrigated area. Careful! Don't get too close to your eyes. Skin and eye-care products can cause irritation, which can also lead to bags under your eyes... the exact opposite of what you want!

PSST!

To help spare your eyes (and the skin around them)...

  • Always avoid rubbing your eyes or applying pressure to the skin around your eyes, which is as thin as silk.
  • Remove makeup gently with the proper product, one that covers your lashes. If your mascara resists, rubbing harder won't help! You're better off leaving a couple of makeup-remover towelettes on each eyelid for a few seconds.
  • For optimal irrigation throughout the night, slip a pillow under the end of your mattress to raise your legs a little. It will increase circulation towards your head.
  • Get a good night's sleep. You'll look better for it in the morning!
