Can you advise me on some eye care?

You are here

Hello Skin Doctors,

I hope you can help me with some great advice! I am in my early 40s and have started to notice the skin underneath my eyes thinning and becoming quite dark. There are also a few noticeable lines appearing now - which I would rather do without!

Can you advise me on the best possible eye care - treatments that will help reduce puffiness, dark circles and fade my lines?

Thank you for your time,

Hi Anon,

My advice on eye treatments is as follows. When applying eye cream, ensure you only use a small amount and gently 'pat' with your ring finger around the bone area of your eye socket - do not put any directly UNDER your eyes as this only causes puffiness etc as the skin is too thin for creams.

Decleor have an eye cream called Prolagene Lift (over 40s range) 'Lift and Brighten Eye Cream', which is great for puffiness and is intensively anti-ageing. Alternatively they have a new product called Aroma Lisse (over 30s range) '2-in-1 Dark Circle & Eye Wrinkle Eraser', which does exactly as it says!

I would also recommend you have regular facials - approximately every 4-6 weeks.

Hope this helps.
