Caring for sensitive under-eye skin

Your eyes can be your biggest beauty asset. However, the delicate skin under your eyes can be one of the first places to show signs of ageing as well as stress and fatigue. A few simple techniques can help you glow with youth.

Why does under-eye skin require special care?

Hat - l'Occitane
Skin under the eyes is much thinner than skin on the rest of the face and more sensitive to harsh chemicals, UV rays, and the environment. It also thins faster than other skin.

Because thin skin loses its elasticity more quickly, the skin under the eyes is one of the first places to show signs of ageing. As a result, under-eye contour requires particular care and attention.
