At Pai we tend to be on the side of simplicity – unless we're talking about our coffee orders! Our response may vary when customers ask for additional steps for their routine.
One of the most common questions is "Do I need an eye cream?"
The skin that surrounds our eyes is extremely thin and contains no sebaceous glands. This means that it is more prone to drying out and wrinkling.
The use of an eye cream that is rich in nourishing and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as essential fatty acids and echium can help to moisturize and support this sensitive area – and prevent the premature appearance of these fine lines.
It's a delicate balance
If you've ever had itchy, stinging, or watery eyes, you'll know how sensitive our eyes can be. When investing in an eye cream, it is important to choose a cream that is free of irritating ingredients like alcohol and artificial fragrance.
Our Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream is suitable for slightly irritated eyes. Fine lines are soothed and smoothed with stearidonic and gamma linolenic acid.
Our care formula is incredibly light – but eye cream is one of the most commonly used products. So keep in mind that less is more! Applying too much product to this sensitive region can lead to swelling and milia.
How do I apply?
For best results, we recommend applying a half pump to both eyes after applying a tonic in the morning, and then applying a day cream to the rest of the face.
Spread the cream over the cheekbones and let the eye area pull the cream up to absorb exactly the amount of moisture it needs.
For additional treatment and to stimulate the eye area, try gently massaging the cream into the skin by tracing the orbital bone (the bony area around your eye) with your ring finger.
For occasional eczema or dry skin around the eyes, our Echium and Argan eye cream is ideal because it is rich in inflammatory and non-irritating ingredients. Simply apply a thin layer of cream to the affected area.
Regardless of whether you use eye cream or not – we recommend that you always wear sunglasses, a hat and a sun protection factor in direct sunlight to avoid sun damage and blinking!
