Since the post “Organic Eye Cream : When should you start using an eye cream?” went out yesterday, we have had a flurry of emails with questions and many of these came from men.
While men do tend to have thicker facial skin with a higher density of sebaceous glands, the skin around their eyes is thin. Therefore men do need to use an eye cream twice daily, morning and evening from as early as possible. If you start in your teenage years its best, but its never too late to prevent further damage.
Because men have thicker skin on their face, they tend not to develop the fine lines that women do. This makes it all the more important to use a good organic eye cream as the area around the eyes is generally the first area where lines and wrinkles develop.
Guys, this can give your age away.
When choosing a good organic eye cream, the same rules apply for both men and women. Choose an eye cream with a nourishing gel like consistency. Heavy and thick creams can make the eyes appear puffy. Ensure the eye cream is alcohol free, even organic alcohol should be avoided. For added benefits use an eye cream that contain ingredients like bilberry and eyebright.
