The area around the eyes, also known as periocular area, is among the most expressive, quickly showing signs of tiredness, age or dehydration. It is often the most exposed too, as we need it so in order to see. So it gets to particularly go through the weather, be irritated, made up and rubbed. You might think that this happens to other parts of skin too, like the hands. Unfortunately, the eye area is also the most delicate part of your entire skin, being extremely thin, up to 10 times thinner than the rest of your face skin). In addition, it is close to the eye, a very sensitive sensory organ. These make it the most sensitive as well as a very important space to give special care to.
One of the most important caring decision for the eye area is to avoid any cosmetic product containing synthetic ingredients. In effect, to remove the risks of toxification, only natural elements should make up the cosmetics you use for your eye area. You often see in traditional cosmetic products words like "avoid the eye area", or "not to be applied to the eye area". That should ring alarm bells. It is a recognition of the particular sensitivity of that region and of the parallel danger that such products represent for this sensitive part of your skin.
The Most Undesirable Ingredients in Eye Care
The particular ingredients you will want to keep away from your eye area include Paraben, Toluene, Phtalates and other synthetic fragrance or perfume, nickel, Chloride, Benzalkonium, alcohol, colorants, Diethanolamine (DEA or DEOA), Triethanolamine (TEA), Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), Sodium laureth sulphate (SLES), Polyethylene Glycol (PEGs), Bisphenol A (BPA), Bisphenol S (BPS), Coal Tar, Hydroquinone, Nano Particles, Para-Petroleum and Petroleum, Propylene Glycol, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE, aka Teflon) and also Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) but also cobalt, colophane, formol and formaldehyde resin.
The eye area requires gentle and deep care to be healthy. It particularly needs to be kept clean, hydrated, fresh and protected. The extra care therefore consists in chosing only those products that are free from any artifical components and that is what 100% natural cosmetics are. In addition, the right and expert combination of components make the right skincare for the periocular area: the natural cosmetic product should include antioxidant vitamins to lubricate, nourish and protect the eye. The oil should be light but deep-penetrating to moisturize, firm up and smooth up fine lines The natural blend should soothe common irritations of this delicate area and leave you with a bright, revitalized look.
Methods of Proper Eye Care
Gentle but deep cleaning means removal of make-up, toxins, bacteria and waste, without dehydrating an area that easily loses water. Hydration means using a moisturizer that nourishes the skin, in the specifically gentle way that the eye area requires. Freshening demands that the skin there is toned and revitalized, without being irritated. Protection is essential for such a delicate area, all the more prone to damages as it is thin.
A sponge, soft washcloth or cotton ball, combined with the right mild soap or oil blend will gently but completely remove your make up along with toxins, bacteria and waste. Ideally, if you need to lather (as you do when you are using soap or gel), use cold to lukewarm water for that freshness and to protect your eye area. Wherever you can, use just one product if it does the job. The ultra gentleness of French Pink Clay allows the Wyld Konjac Sponge - French Pink Clay to be the perfect and the most practical tool for this job.
