How to keep your eye area moisturized?

The eye contour area is a sensitive area of the face that requires special attention. Dark circles, fine lines and fatigue are all signs of dehydrated skin. To keep the eye area hydrated and luminous, it is essential to adopt an adapted natural skin care routine. Discover in this article the tips and gestures to adopt to effectively moisturize your eye contour.

Causes of dehydration

The eye area is a particularly fragile and sensitive area of the face, which can easily become dehydrated. Several factors can contribute to this dehydration, including the fragility of the skin around the eyes. This area is up to five times thinner and more delicate than the rest of our face, and does not contain sebaceous glands or sweat glands to naturally protect it from dehydration.

In addition, the eye area is constantly in motion. We blink thousands of times a day, which can increase dehydration and fragility of the skin around the eyes. Repetitive movements, such as smiling, frowning and eye movements, can also increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Other factors commonly associated with dehydration of the eye area include:

  1. Lack of sleep is one of the main causes of skin dehydration. When we don't get enough sleep, our bodies can't regenerate properly, which can lead to water loss and skin dehydration. In addition, lack of sleep can also affect blood circulation, which can further dehydrate the skin and lead to the appearance of dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.
  2. Stress, on the other hand, can trigger the production of stress hormones such as cortisol, which alter skin quality and make it more prone to dehydration.
  3. Pollution is also a factor that can contribute to the dehydration of the eye area. Fine particles in the air can penetrate the skin and damage its protective barrier. This can affect the quality of the skin and make it look dull and tired. It is therefore important to protect the skin from pollution by using appropriate skin care products and avoiding polluted areas.
  4. Skin care products and makeup removal can also contribute to skin dehydration. The use of aggressive products, such as cleansers or toners containing alcohol, plays a role in skin hydration. Similarly, overly aggressive makeup removal can damage the skin and lead to water loss.
  5. Blue light is also an increasingly common cause: this light emitted by screens, smartphones and tablets can affect the quality of the skin and alter the skin barrier, which can make the skin more susceptible to dehydration.
  6. Finally, age can also play a role in the dehydration of the eye area. As we age, collagen (the protein that gives skin its elasticity and resilience) production decreases, making the skin more vulnerable to dehydration. Wrinkles and fine lines can also form more easily around the eyes, making the area even drier.

This is why it is important to take care of your eye area in a specific way, by using moisturizing products adapted to this fragile area, and by adopting a regular skin care routine to preserve the skin's youthfulness and avoid dehydration.

Steps to take to properly moisturize the eye area

First of all, it's essential to choose a moisturizer that's right for your skin type. Moisturizers for the eye area are specially formulated for this delicate area and can help moisturize the skin, improve blood circulation to reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles and prevent dehydration.

Next, it is important to apply the product properly. To avoid irritation, gently pat the product onto the area around your eyes with your ring finger, which is the softest finger on your hand. Avoid rubbing or pulling on the skin, as this can increase dehydration and make it more prone to fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition, it is recommended to adopt a regular skincare routine for the eye area. This routine can include the use of a moisturizing eye mask once a week, as well as the regular application of a moisturizer in the morning and evening.

At Kadalys, we have developed our Thirst Quenching Eye Mask, enriched with Green Banana Bio-Active, Glycerin and Red Algae. Thanks to its ultra-fresh gel texture, it awakens the eyes in an instant, blurring the signs of fatigue. Packed with moisturizing and regenerating active ingredients, this mask nourishes the skin and helps strengthen the cutaneous barrier. Its fragrance-free formula respects the delicate eye area and is suitable for all skin types. By using this mask regularly, you can help keep skin hydrated, reducing fine lines and wrinkles caused by dehydration. Apply this mask once or twice a week to the eye area in a thick layer on clean, dry skin for 15 minutes. After leaving it on the skin, gently pat it on to activate the circulation.

Little tip: we recommend that you place the mask in a cool place before using it, to decongest the eye contour area as much as possible.

Focus on a key ingredient : red algae complex

As the star ingredient in our eye mask, it was imperative for us to share with you a little more about the benefits of the red algae complex. A powerful and natural ingredient, it helps deeply moisturize the eye area and fight dehydration. But how?

First of all, it is important to know that red algae contain polysaccharides, i.e. macromolecules, which help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These two proteins are essential for maintaining the firmness and elasticity of the skin, especially around the eyes where the skin is thinner and more fragile. By stimulating the production of these proteins, red algae extract can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, while improving skin texture.

In addition, the moisturizing properties of red algae help to deeply nourish the skin, maintaining an optimal level of hydration to prevent dehydration of the eye area.

Finally, this red algae complex is rich in antioxidants, which help protect the skin from the harmful effects of free radicals, responsible for premature skin aging. These antioxidants help prevent skin degradation, especially around the eyes where the skin is exposed to UV rays and pollution.
