Ever wondered what age you start using an eye cream?
It is a much mentioned dilemma for both men and women who begin to see the first signs of ageing often around the eye area where the skin is thinner and more delicate. Totally Aesthetic asked Consultant Ophthalmologist & Oculoplastic Surgeon, Dr Sabrina Shah-Desai for the real facts!
What age should you start using an eye cream?
Ideally, it is advisable to commence some form of a skincare regime once you reach your 20’s as a preventative benefits and then in your 30s onwards for anti-ageing benefits.
As we grow older, we lose natural fat padding from the skin under the eyebrows. This causes the brows to appear droopy, especially on the outer corner, which can also make the eyes look smaller. Crow’s feet around the outer corners of the eyes become more apparent as we hit our 30s.
