As temperatures rise and the sun shines brighter, our skincare routines often need adjustments to protect and nourish our skin. While we diligently apply sunscreen and hydrating moisturizers, one area that often gets overlooked is our delicate eye area. However, neglecting this area during the summer months can lead to a host of issues like premature aging, dark circles, and puffiness. In this blog, we'll explore why incorporating eye treatments into your summer skincare regimen is crucial for maintaining youthful, radiant eyes.


What makes the eye area different?


The skin around our eyes is ten times thinner than the rest of our face and very delicate. It lacks the same levels of collagen and elastin, the tissues responsible for structural support. To add to this, our facial expressions rely on our eyes and we are constantly moving that fragile skin around. In the summer under the bright sun, we also unintentionally blink, squeeze and squint our eyes more often. It is no wonder that the eye area shows creases, fine lines and wrinkles well before the rest of our face.


Sun Protection:


Without proper protection, prolonged sun exposure can lead to sunburn, fine lines, and even skin cancer. Look for an eye treatment and serums to build and maintain collagen and elastin as well as hydrate the eye area. Apply your sunscreen around the orbital bone and wear sunglasses or a hat for physical protection.


Hydration:


Summer heat and sun exposure can dehydrate the skin, leading to dryness and wrinkles around the eyes. Using hydrating eye treatments and moisturisers or serums with ingredients like Hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and rejuvenating ingredients like walnut Seed Extract and Pomegranate oil helps replenish moisture and maintain a smooth, supple under-eye area.


Combatting Dark Circles:


Late nights, increased sun exposure, and dehydration can exacerbate dark circles under the eyes during the summer months. Incorporating eye creams containing brightening agents like Stabilised Vitamin C, Green tea and Liquorice can help reduce pigmentation and brighten the under-eye area for a more refreshed appearance.


Minimizing Puffiness:


Swollen or puffy eyes are a common complaint during the summer, often due to factors like allergies, heat, or excess salt intake. Eye treatments with soothing ingredients like cucumber extract, Caffeine, or Chamomile can help reduce inflammation and diminish puffiness for a revitalized look.


Preventing Premature Aging:


The combination of UV exposure and environmental stressors during the summer accelerates the aging process, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin around the eyes. Regular use of anti-aging eye treatments containing peptides, or antioxidants can help stimulate collagen production, firm the skin, and minimize signs of aging.



Don't let the summer sun take a toll on your delicate eye area. Incorporating targeted eye treatments into your skincare routine can help protect, hydrate, and rejuvenate this sensitive area, ensuring brighter, youthful-looking eyes all season long. Remember to wear sunglasses, stay hydrated, and get plenty of rest to complement your eye care efforts and maintain healthy, radiant skin throughout the summer months.
