1. Plump up the eyes

Hydrated eyelids help the eyes look and feel younger. Get plumper looking eye area skin with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, which attracts and traps moisture.

2. Soothe irritated eyelids

The eyelid skin is the most vulnerable to irritations since it's the thinnest skin. It's important to soothe the eyelids at the very first sign of irritations.

3. Protect the eye area from UV rays

Since UV rays cause breakdown of collagen and elastin it's important to protect the delicate lids. Wearing sunglasses and sunscreen around the eyes is a must!

4. Cleanse the eyelids with an eye-specific cleanser

Allergens and pollutants easily build on the eyelid skin. If you don't cleanse the eye area these irritants can cause inflammation, breaking down collagen and elastin.

Facial cleansers tend to be too harsh for the eye area.
