How many of us use a specific eye cream and neck cream? Most of us are not using specific eye or neck creams but simply extending our moisturisers to these areas.

Let’s look at the physiological characteristics of the eye area:

  • the eye contour is constantly moving, there are 22 muscles involved in moving the eyelids and we blink approx 10,000 times per day.
  • the eye contour area is naturally more fragile as it is 3-5 times finer than the rest of the face and there are less dermal fibres to maintain firmness and elasticity.
  • the skin of the eye contour is finer and more transparent and there is a dense capillary network that can lead to an occasional slowing down of the micro circulation. This can lead to dark circles and puffiness around the eye area.
  • the eye contour is rich in fatty tissue therefore can accentuate excess storage of lipids that may occur with age.
  • the eye area is rich in nerve endings and has 3 times as many Langerhans cells that increases the sensitivity.
  • the hydrolipidic film is almost non-existent as there are very few sebaceous glands to keep this area protected so the eye area is prone to dehydration and fine lines.

Now let’s look at the neck and décolleté.

  • the neck is quite fine with few sebaceous glands.
  • the skin is very flexible and is constantly moving and rubbing against clothing.
  • the area is exposed to daily aggressions such as UV rays and wind and is quite often neglected – the neck loses firmness and tone, and horizontal lines form prematurely. Fatty tissue also forms under the chin area to give the appearance of a double chin.
