Why is it important to moisturize the eye area?
The skin around the eyes is the first area to show the telltale signs of aging and stress. Moisturization of the eye area can protect the delicate moisture barrier as well as minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Intensive Eye Complex is specifically formulated to supplement and protect the fragile skin around the eyes with intense moisture.
- On most areas of the body, the epidermis is approximately 0.045 millimeters thick. On the palms of the hands and soles of the feet, it is up to several millimeters thick. However, around the eyes, it is only 0.020 millimeters thick. This helps explain why the skin around the eyes is so delicate and requires special care.
- For many reasons, the delicate tissue that surrounds your eyes is more likely to display signs of advancing age sooner than other areas of the face and body. Over time, fine lines tend to give way to the deeper lines called crow’s feet. Sun exposure may be responsible for as much as 75 percent of aging skin. To protect against premature aging around the eyes, keep the area adequately moisturized and wear sunscreen to block aging UVA and UVB rays.
