Lack of firmness is exacerbated with age, but lifestyle also plays a major role - facial makeup, stress and sleep among other things. With increasing age, the skin's collagen and elastin (the skin's building blocks) become weaker, leading to fine lines and reduced firmness. But with the right care you can counter early signs of ageing, and best results can be obtained if you adapt your eye cream to your skin's particular condition and to your age.
UV radiation helps to break down the collagen in the skin, so apply that sunscreen! We can also help boost our skin's collagen production, both from the inside and from the outside, by providing the cells with what they need to produce new collagen. Skin care uses peptides and other substances that can stimulate the skin's own collagen production. Vitamin A (retinol) and antioxidants - especially vitamin C - are proven to be effective, so make sure your skin care contains these super-vitamins. Eye cream can be used morning and evening. Bear in mind that you only need a small amount of eye cream per application - about the amount of a grain of rice. Pat in gently and avoid stretching the skin.
