It is a little known fact that the skin around our eyes is the thinnest in the face1, measuring only 0.2mm in thickness in some people2. At QV, we know it is essential to take extra care of the skin around the eyes as part of a daily skincare routine.
So, we have paired up with QV Consultant and Dermatologist, Dr. Jacqueline Matulich who is Platinum Dermatology’s expert in adult and paediatric skin care, to get her tips on caring for the sensitive and delicate skin around the eyes.
With fewer oil glands (less sebum) and less collagen3, the sensitive skin around the eyes lacks the level of natural moisture present in other parts of the body4,5, which means it can easily become dry, inflamed and as a result, become damage-prone and age quicker2.
Caring for the skin around the eyes requires extra attention, with a combination of the right ingredients formulated in the right products2, good rest6 and sufficient hydration7 to keep this area of skin looking supple and feeling hydrated all year round.
