“Do I need eye creams, serums, masks, or even eye treatment facials?” This has been a question that has intrigued many of us since the introduction of eye care products. We might wonder why there is a need for a separate eye cream around our eyes when there are already moisturisers and serums for the face.
To help you resolve this dilemma, here are two reasons why you should invest in skincare and brow procedures for your eyes:
1. The skin around our eyes is more sensitive than the rest of our face. Normal skincare products like moisturisers only work at a superficial level to nourish as well as hydrate the upper layers of our skin, however, they prove to be ineffective when it comes to penetrating the eye area. Furthermore, as the eye area is more sensitive, these skincare products may irritate the eye. Eye creams are specially formulated to penetrate the eye area and reach the deeper skin cells to combat concerns such as dark circles and ageing. Factors like dryness and loss of collagen can also lead to the formation of small wrinkles around the eyes. Incorporating an eye cream into your daily skincare routine can help minimise the appearance of these wrinkles whilst tackling other skin concerns like pigmentation and puffiness, and dryness.
2. Apart from taking care of the skin around your eyes, you should also keep in mind to groom your brows on a regular basis. Having well-groomed and full-looking brows can help accentuate the shape of your eyes as well as facial features. Furthermore, having the right eyebrow shape can add both dimension and length to one’s eyes, keeping the focus away from any flaws you might have
When to start investing in eye care and what to look out for?
Now that you know the benefits of skincare products for your eyes, it is time to start investing in one. The best time to start is in your early 20s as it is easier to prevent signs of ageing as compared to combating them.
To target more complex concerns such as fine lines, puffiness, dark eye circles, and more, your eye care product needs to have active ingredients such as retinol, vitamin C, peptides, hyaluronic acid. These ingredients help reach the cellular level and can reverse the signs of ageing and dryness around the eyes. It is recommended to apply your eye cream after cleansing and toning but before facial moisturisers. Simply spread an amount about the size of a pea between two fingers, dot around both eyes, before gently patting it in.
Besides investing in eye care products, you can also go for regular eye treatment facials in Singapore to further improve the eye area. One such treatment you can consider is the Peptide Eye Refiner Treatment, available at Ceramique Aesthetics. This is a 45-minutes treatment programme that aims to brighten the skin around the eyes, resolve discolouration and pigmentation issues. During facial treatment, skin specialists will also use carefully formulated products that are eye-friendly to stimulate circulation, increase moisture levels, and even improve the skin’s tissue to prevent signs of ageing.
Also, too much eye makeup such as mascara and eyeliners are bad for the skin around the eyes. Constantly wearing mascara increases your risks of inflammation and eye infections, whereas eyeliner can cause the eye area to become dry. Fortunately, advancements in the beauty industry have made it possible for us to look good all the time whilst reducing the risks of infections. The two most popular, semi-permanent solutions to further accentuate your eyes are eyelash extensions and brow embroidery.
Lash extensions are semi-permanent, customisable lashes that are hand-glued on top of your natural lashes to give you an all-day groomed and polished appearance. It’s important to find a professional lash technician or specialist to figure out your eye shape and length of natural lashes so that they can help you decide on a lash extension that gives off a voluminous appearance.
On the other hand, brow embroidery, also known as microblading, is a minimally-invasive procedure to embed coloured pigments just under your skin. Using hair-like strokes, this brow-filling procedure aims to create fuller, and more natural-looking brows. As everyone has a unique face shape, many beauty aestheticians use brow mapping based on the golden ratio rule to determine the brow arch and shape that is most suitable for you. The results can range from subtle and natural, to bold and beautiful depending on your personal style and preferences.
If you do not wish to do microblading, you can always opt for brow tinting instead. Known as one of the quickest ways to achieve fuller brows, brow tinting is a zero-discomfort procedure that changes the colour of your brow hairs, to give a stronger and long-lasting pigment. Before the brow tinting procedure, Ceramique Aesthetics also does eyebrow threading and tweezing to remove unruly hair.
