When it comes to our overall face skincare routine, we often have a good grasp of what works. But what about the sensitive skin area around the eyes? That’s a different story. Did you know that the skin around your eyes differs from the skin on your face? Not only is it the first to show signs of aging, but it is thinner and lacks the density of sebaceous (oil) glands, making it more prone to dryness and irritation. Plus, constant movement from blinking, smiling, and other facial expressions can accelerate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The blood vessels here are also more prominent, which can lead to unfavorable dark circles and puffiness because of fluid retention and poor circulation. All this to say, using a specific skincare routine that keeps this sensitive area nourished, protected, and youthful is essential. Read along as we share tips on treating the sensitive eye area and what ingredients and Repêchage products to incorporate into your daily skincare routine. 

What Are the Best Ingredients to Treat Sensitive Eye Area? 

Now that we’ve delved into the delicate nature of our eye area, it’s time to explore the ingredients that truly make a difference in enhancing its appearance. Among the potent components we harness include: 

Caffeine: Caffeine is a true power ingredient. Its properties can decrease the appearance of dark circles by improving circulation. It’s also rich in antioxidants, which protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals and environmental stressors. 

Camellia Japonica Seed Oil: Rich in moisture, this seed oil helps maintain the skin around the eyes soft and supple, providing intense hydration.

Ginkgo Biloba Extract: This extract reduces puffiness and soothes irritated skin while helping to firm and tone the skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Laminaria Saccharina Extract: Derived from brown algae, this extract provides deep hydration, keeping the skin around the eyes well-moisturized and preventing dryness.

Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5: We love this ingredient since it promotes collagen production, enhances skin elasticity, and reduces signs of aging, including crow’s feet and sagging skin.

Ulva Lactuca – Marine Biopeptide: Marine Biopeptide contains the enzyme Aosine and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
