I can’t stress enough how important it is to moisturize your skin and especially around the eyes. The first time I was told about this was in Beauty school. My teacher said, “The best thing you can do for your skin to prevent sagging, wrinkled, discolored skin is to MOISTURIZE!” And the second tip was to be generous with your moisturizers because we live in an incredibly dry climate here in Vancouver and our skin needs as much help as it can get. My thoughts were that I was young enough that I didn’t need eye creams already, but let me tell you…it has changed my life, literally. I don’t go a day or night without prepping my skin with serums, moisturizers and my favorite eye cream. My skin has never been happier or looked healthier than it does now. Some of my favorite products I’m using right now are:
1) Sothys HydraAdvance Intensive Hydrating Serum – This is my pre-moisturizer that I put on first, right after cleansing each morning. It is a cool, silky cream that dries matte but gives my skin its intial dose of hydration.
2) Yonka Vital Defense Cream – I love this new Yonka product. It is a great moisturizer that protects your skin against harsh everyday environmental factors like cigarette smoke, pollution, UV exposure and climate variation. This cream smells great and gives your skin a refreshing, hydrated yet comfortable feeling. My favorite part of the morning!
3) Darphin STIMULSKIN PLUS Eye Contour Cream – A dense eye cream that lets you feel the elasticity rebuilding around your eyes with each application. Now that I have started using this product, it feels wrong to go without it. My eyes are more vibrant and fine lines are smoothed.
4) Water – I added this last minute because I don’t want you to forget that drinking water daily plays a huge role in having beautiful glowing skin. Skin hydrating products do not replace the 80% of water in your body. So try to drink as much water as possible without going overboard!
If you don’t have a hydration regimen of your own, try mine! Guaranteed to feel great about your skin!
