Eyes are women's first concern when it comes to combating the signs of age.
This extremely sensitive and fragile area betrays the slightest tiredness and reveals the passage of time.

To know the causes of eye contour aging and to be able to counteract it, read what our dermatologist has to say.

Why does the eye contour age faster?

Since facial skin is very thin and under constant exertion, it is rapidly affected by the signs of time

The eye contour has the thinnest and most fragile skin on the entire face.
It is lacking in sebaceous glands and collagen and elastin fibers.
The skin around the eyes is under the strain of 22 muscles in perpetual motion and 10,000 blinks per day. This is why the eye contour is the first area to show signs of aging. Fine and deep wrinkles and traces of tiredness can thus appear prematurely.

How can the eye contour be cared for?

It needs treatment that is both effective and gentle to combat signs of aging and fatigue in this sensitive area

The skin around the eye contour requires care that combines great effectiveness and high tolerance to meet the demands of anti-aging and sensitivity.
To keep your eye contour looking young, use a specific treatment which will smooth wrinkles in a gentle way and nourish and moisturize this area, which is subject to dehydration.

REDERMIC [R] Eyes, the retinol for sensitive eyes, enables benefitting from the anti-wrinkle and anti-aging power of retinol without redness or irritation; this new-generation care is based on a unique combination of pure retinol and slow-release retinol.

What causes signs of tiredness around the eyes?

Signs of tiredness around the eyes are often due to sluggish microcirculation

With tiredness or age, blood and lymph microcirculation around the eyes may slow.
The very thin skin around the eye contour readily reveals the marks of poor vascularization or inadequate lymph drainage. This is what provokes the appearance of signs of tiredness, such as shadows or puffiness.
The more fragile, dehydrated and thinner this skin is, the more it shows signs of tiredness.

What is the age to start using an eye contour care product?

Treatment for the eye contour can begin at the age of 25

When women speak about being concerned by premature signs of aging, the eye contour is mentioned first.
Wrinkles, dullness and haggard-looking eyes are identified as markers of cutaneous aging and are thus a cause for concern. Treatment for the eye contour can begin rather early, starting at age 25.
