The skin around the eye is 0.5 mm thick and is therefore four times thinner than the facial skin. It lies directly on the muscles surrounding the eye and is almost devoid of sebaceous glands, which would generate a protective barrier in the form of a layer of fat. Collagen and elastin fibers are also less likely to spread here. The muscles of the eyelids continually work: expand and contract with each blink of the eyes and smile which forms wrinkles. Stress, fatigue, improper diet and lymph circulation causes swelling and bruising.
The eye area needs to be properly nurtured starting from the age of 20 when collagen production decreases. At the age of 25, the first wrinkles appear.
Treatment for the area around the eye is especially recommended to those who complain of thin and flabby skin of the eyelids, shadows and bruising around the eyes, dark horseshoes, bags and puffiness under the eyes and wrinkles at the corners of the eyes and on the lower eyelid.
