The EYES have it!:
The skin is thinnest on the eyelids and under the eyes and thickest on the palms of our hands and the soles of our feet.
The skin around the eye is up to ten times thinner than the skin on the rest of the face.
This is why this area is usually the first to show visible signs of aging.
This is especially true for the outer corners, which lack oil glands.
-collagen is thought to decrease by as much as 30% in the first five years after menopause.
... another great thing we have going for us ladies.
To help retain thickness for the skin around eyes:
- Avoid squinting
- Be gentle – Don’t ever tug or pull at the skin here
