It has been said by many a wordsmith, that your eyes are the windows to your soul. As lovely as that sentiment is, I'm guessing that these poets didn't look at our eyes after a heavy night or a tiring week. They certainly wouldn't be seeing windows; more bags big enough to carry our groceries in.
If there's any part of your face that'll give the game away it's your eyes. Whether you're tired, stressed, ill, dehydrated, hungover or just not tip-tip your eye area will show it. Why? We're glad you asked.
The skin around your eyes is fragile, more so than anywhere else on your face. The thin skin is really prone to dryness. Add to that the constant moving of your eyes, squinting and well, we hate to say it, smiling and your eyes also become the area of your face to age first, and more rapidly. As if that's not enough - BAGS. Sigh.
Determining what causes bags is dependent on your age - bags in your 20s are different from bags in your 50s. Bags in young people can be caused by too much salt, lack of sleep, lack of exercise and water retention. It's obvious how to 'cure' these types of bags - sleep, exercise, eat well and drink lots of water. Bags later in life are caused by aging. As we age collagen levels decline and our skin loses it's elasticity and starts to sag. There's only so much we can fight the aging process, but luckily there are products to help. And a dedicated eye cream is a great place to start - and it's never too early to start using one.
We're putting Goodness twice-a-day eye cream to the test. This soft, delicate and fragrance-free product is here to help make your eyes look and feel ah-mazing. It has witch hazel extract (which is incredible for dark circles!), chia seed, coconut and avocado oil and is so light you'll be able to wear it under make-up without feeling overloaded with product!
As the name suggests you use this product twice a day. Use your little finger (it's the most gentle) and dab a dot around the eye area and up to the brow bone.
So, now's the time for you to get talking to us about all things eyes and eye cream. Do you find your eye area gives away how you're feeling? Do you use an eye cream? Do you notice the difference if you don't?
