What comes to mind when you hear the word “aging”? Some think of the beautiful journey that is, growing old. Others think strictly in terms of physical appearance. If you are the latter, you may be picturing those dainty creases around the eyes, otherwise known as a sign of maturing skin. The skin surrounding the eyes is thin and ever so delicate, so it is here that the signs of aging first come to light.
This is why extra care is needed to look after this fragile skin. There has been some debate in recent years over whether or not eye cream is necessary with the term ‘glorified moisturiser’ being thrown around. Using a moisturiser may be ‘good enough’. However, at Perricone good enough has never been good enough. Why use eye creams? The answer is for targeted results.
Is eye cream necessary?
Let’s begin by discussing why an eye cream is necessary.
Firstly, there are fewer oil glands in the area around the eyes. This means the skin here is prone to dry out quicker than on the rest of the face. It therefore requires extra hydration, one of the reasons why we use eye creams.
Secondly, as this skin is so delicate, it is also prone to irritation. Using products that are specifically designed for the fragile eye area means that harsh ingredients aren’t a concern. For example, Perricone’s Hypoallergenic CBD Eye Cream is formulated with 99% pure Cannabidiol (CBD), making it an ultra-gentle cream designed to calm and smooth the appearance of even the most sensitive skin. Deeply soothing and nourishing eye creams are necessary to target the under-eyes with essential hydration and nourishment without irritating the fragile area.
