3 Incredible DIY Eye Contour Masks Recipes

With its thin skin constantly in demand, the eye contour is a fragile area that requires proper care and cosmetics. 

Discover our 3 formulae to make your home care for the eye contour…

The eye contour is an area that merits your full attention!

Dark circles, wrinkles, puffiness… It is around this well-known eye contour that the first signs of aging, but also stress and fatigue appear… Quite simply, the skin of your face is thinner and more fragile. It is therefore much more susceptible to dehydration and skin aging. In extra, this is an area where the skin is frequently stressed with an average of 10,000 blinks per day! 

This thinner skin is therefore vulnerable because it is poor in fat and muscle, which is why it is one of the first parts of the dermis to relax and wrinkle. Add to that external aggressions such as free radicals, UV rays, make-up, allergies, impurities, friction… and you get an area of ​​the face whose muscles deteriorate much faster than elsewhere!

In case of tiredness or stress, you may also notice dark circles or puffiness appear. Dark circles are often greyish hollows that demonstrate a lack of hydration or sleep, while puffiness is clumps of fat lodged just below the eye. Puffy eyes, wrinkles, irritations… Discover our homemade recipes to take care of your eye contour!
