Why Does Our Eye Area Ages Faster?

I don't know about you, but 2 weeks ago my under eyes could be in comparison to that of a panda’s (think, dark circles, puffy bags and dehydration lines creeping up around the edges). This is the reason why you might have seen on my socials a lot of skincare products lately—part of it is because I've been on a mission to find the best for my ageing skin including the best Eye Serum. And also coz’ I want to wake up everyday looking like I've had 10 hours sleep, and not spent half the night watching series on netflix. haha!

Yup, you’ve read it— I've been busy searching out for the best skincare and effective eye serum that would suit me. Eye serum – sounds fancy, huh? But is it really necessary?

Fact of life: It is the eye and the area that surrounds it tends to be the main area of concern as we age. 

Here are the reason's why our eye area ages faster:

Very Thin Skin
At 0.5mm thick— one third the thickness of the skin on the fae, the skin around the eye is not only thin, but delicate as well, which is why signs of ageing shows up faster.

Less Sebaceous Glands
This makes the skin drier, making the eye contour more prone to fine lines and wrinkles.

Stress and Lack of Sleep.
Long hours staring at the screens of our electronic devices can strain the eyes. Add up insufficient sleep, the eye area will definitely look tired and dull.

Constant Blinking.
We blink up to 20,000 times a day and this constant repeated movement can cause the skin to lose its vitality and can push to the formation of wrinkles And, if that isn’t enough to stare blankly ~don’t forget there is also gravity’s noticeable effects on both the upper lids and skin beneath the eyes. (Ouch, I know—the truth really hurts!)

This boils down why an eye serum should be incorporated into your daily ritual from your 20’s. Now if you’ve also moved into the next decade of your life (like the lady who blogs this), then start now (wink, wink).

Yup, NOW. Especially in this time of the new normal. The real eye-opener for us during this crazy time is that, we should take care of our eyes double the way we take care of the rest of our face and skin. Simply because our eyes are the most noticeable part of our face and it is the most exposed and tired part of it. Not as tricky as before, this new normal makes us all focus on our eyes.

During the lockdown period, screen time has drastically increased because everything is only accessible online. Therefore, our eyes, obviously suffered a lot. And now that the new normal required us to wear face masks most of the time, only our eyes are very much exposed to environmental pollutants which results in premature skin ageing. 

I’m currently using the new BSKIN Eye Care Multi-Tasking Power Serum Eye Care Multi-Tasking Power Serum which just launched in the Philippines. It is an eye care serum that is packed with multiple benefits that claims to reverse signs of aging, erases dark circles and pigmentation, decongests and reduces puffiness, and prevents skin dryness. I started using it since it arrived at my doorstep last Feb 28 (approx 12 days as I write this blogpost).

BSKIN Eye Care Multi-tasking Power Serum is suitable even to the most sensitive skin and is packed with clinically proven active ingredients like: Niacinamide and Sea Daffodill extract for dark circles; Aloe vera for puffiness; Adenosine that help reverse the signs of ageing + four different peptides for fine lines; Glycosyl Trehalose and Betaine for dryness. It is also enriched with honey which is a humectant which draws moisture for the skin; royal jelly~ a protein-rich substance from which improves skin elasticity and propolis which is an emollient with anti-bacterial and anti-ingflammatory properties; and bee pollen, which “stimulates skin tissue growth.

Do I like its effect? Is it effective? You be the judge! Naaah— just kidding. :) Seriously within the days of using it, I already love its effect —it is lightweight and gentle on the skin.Since it is already part of my day and night skincare routine, I'm already excited to see yielding visible results in the next 3 – 4 weeks.

Also here's sharing with you on how you can make your eyes have that luminous glow in the new normal:

During daytime, you can use light make-up to cover eye woes and to add up some color on it to make it brighter and more attractive. But always make sure to use products that are made of safe ingredients and will not damage your skin like the BSKIN SS Cream. This 4-in-1 cream is made up of all-natural ingredients which combine skincare, sunblock, because of its SPF50+/PA++, make-up base and foundation.

While on nighttime after a long day, make sure to treat your skin and never skip your skin care routine. Always follow the wash-tone-moisturize routine. But don’t forget to give extra care to the most exposed and tired part of your face – your eyes. There are many eye cream products in the market, but make sure to trust only the natural and the best product that will give the extra care your eye deserves.

Always choose to be smart about your skin care products — trust me and your future self will thank you for giving your skin the best care it deserves.

The BSKIN Eye Care Multi-Tasking Power Serum is priced at P5,332 and is available at the BSKIN Philippines website and its official Facebook page  and Lazada.
