Caring for your eye area and layering

Caring for your eye area and layering

Eyes are the windows to your soul—beyond just that, they are our windows to the world! We use our eyes to give us an insight to the world around us. Did you know, people subconsciously focus on your eyes when they first see you and when engaging in conversations? In portrait photography, the focus should often be on the eyes (and eye area). 

This is why the delicate part around our eyes requires some additional care. Dullness and skin dryness can often causes of a tired appearance which can lead to us looking fatigued. Fortunately, there are plenty of #skinvestments and organic skincare solutions that are there to help you improve the appearance of the area around your eyes! (Yes, including the eyelid).

The first advise, which most of us neglect, is the use of SPF around the eye area, including on the eyelids. Use a mineral sunscreen to avoid eye irritation as the skin around our eyes in more delicate and thinner. The Earth Harbor Eclipse Sheer Mineral Sunscreen is a mineral sunscreen that also works to blur imperfections and improve the appearance of your skin. Using this may reduce the appearance of undereye circles due to the naturally occurring tint from the ingredients. However, the key goal of using sunscreen is to prevent collagen degradation which can worsen the appearance of undereye circles and fine lines.

If you encounter fine lines, the key to reducing the appearance naturally using organic eye creams, serums, and clean, natural beauty, is to plump the area. Using naturally derived vitamin A and C from organic skincare products can also boost collagen production and improve the appearance of the area overtime. 

Start by layering: layering is the key in effective skincare routines. Begin with the lightest products and do not layer active ingredients, i.e. do not mix vitamin C with vitamin A (use them on rotation) and do not use acids with vitamin A as this will cause skin irritation. The Organic Pharmacy Lifting Eye Gel is one of our favourites. This 67% organic formula organic natural extracts to brighten and protect the skin while tightening and lifting the eye area. For those who love roses, this is a perfect match for you. The rose scent lingers and delights your sense. The next step would be to layer it with another product such as the Evolve Organic 360 Eye and Lip Contour which will dramatically improve the appearance of your eyes by protecting and sealing in the moisture. Your eye area will look more hydrated overtime and makeup can be applied with ease.

If you are prone to fine lines and a dry eye area, fear not, there are other products which you can use to satisfy and quench your skin’s thirst. Hyaluronic acid is your best friend when it comes to hydration and plumping the skin. The Evolve Organic Beauty Hyaluronic Eye Complex refreshes and plumps the eye area, leaving you with fresher looking eyes.

If you are looking for a more pampering experience for yourself and your eyes, try our eye add on treatments or use an eye mask at home (refrigerated 😉)
