Our eye area has less fatty tissue than the rest of the facial skin. The barrier layer of skin around the eyes is also the thinnest in our entire body. Therefore, signs of stress or fatigue can quickly become visible here. Puffiness can occur due to the loose connective tissue and the skin dries out more quickly. Since the skin zone around the eyes is the most sensitive part of the face, the eyes and the skin areas around them must be cared for with sufficient moisture.
The right care for the eyes
In general, care should be taken to cleanse the eyes in the morning and evening and to provide the eye area with the right care and active ingredients.
Gentle cleansing of the eyes is important in order not to unnecessarily stress the sensitive skin. The eye area should be cleaned with a cloth or cotton pad moistened with lukewarm water from the inside out - i.e. from the inner corner of the eye to the direction of the temple. This prevents dirt particles from getting into the eye that have spread over the skin during the course of the day.
Due to the dirt and environmental influences we are exposed to every day, it is of course important to thoroughly cleanse the entire face in addition to the eyes. Because make-up and dirt particles can lead to skin impurities and a weakened skin barrier.
These active ingredients are good for the eyes
Collagen & Alginate in Eye Care
Collagen is a powerful ingredient in eye care. Native collagen fibers, molecules and peptides provide the skin with extra moisture and smooth wrinkles. In addition to our native and highly effective collagen, our Collagen Eye Mask also contains hyaluronic acid and soothes the skin around the delicate eye area.
Alginate is made from brown algae and can bind a hundred times its own weight in water and release it back into the skin. This can support the moisturizing effect. The active ingredient is contained in our Marine Eye Mask, which produces a visible immediate effect due to the unique combination of active ingredients.
Our eye masks can be applied several times a week, both in the morning and in the evening, depending on your needs. While the collagen mask particularly soothes and smoothes the skin around the eyes due to the extremely high dose of collagen, the deep-acting algae mask provides an immediately plumper, rehydrated and visibly firmer appearance of the eye area.
Resveratrol & Hyaluronic Acid in Eye Care
Resveratrol protects collagen production, neutralizes free radicals and prevents skin irritation. It is contained, among other things, in our Resveratrol Concentrate Eye - an eye care product that is best applied in the evening after cleansing the eye area. This is a highly effective anti-aging concentrate that contains resveratrol as well as shea butter and hyaluronic acid, which also moisturize the sensitive eye area and sustainably stimulate lipid production.
Hyaluronic acid is also an important active ingredient in eye care. Among other things, it is involved in repair processes and wound healing, promotes the storage of moisture in the skin and binds it. The combination of active ingredients in our Resveratrol Concentrate Eye has been proven to provide 46% firmer skin and reduce tired skin around the eye area by 44%*.
More tips for bright eyes
Properly apply cream to the eyes
Eye creams are usually rich, provide the skin with sufficient moisture and stimulate lipid production. In addition, the skin around the eyes also benefits from the right care technique. You care for your eyes best if you always apply the cream gently in a consistent stroke direction without rough rubbing.
Stimulate blood circulation
You can best care for your eyes by balancing the moisture balance with the right eye care. To prevent dark circles, blood circulation can be stimulated by lightly and evenly patting in the eye care with your fingertips.
Refreshment for puffy eyes
Cooling eye pads can help against puffiness in the morning. Our eye masks (Collagen Eye Mask & Marine Eye Mask) provide a special freshness kick in the morning and a lasting effect with immediate effect.
If you do not have them in the house at the moment, for example, chilled compresses or spoons can also provide initial cooling by placing them on the swollen eyes.
