Do Under Eye Patches Work?

IN THIS ARTICLE: 

Just how delicate is the skin around your eyes?

The skin surrounding your eye area is 10 times thinner than the rest of the skin on your body. It gets a lot thinner as you get older. The eye area also lacks oil glands, it’s not capable of moisturizing itself naturally. Dry skin is more prone to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, and with the skin being thin, these signs are even more prominent.

It’s because of these reasons (and more) that you need to give a special kind of attention and care to your under eyes.

WHY UNDER-EYE PATCHES ARE A MUST

Most skincare products may be too strong or harsh on the fragile skin around the eye area. Good thing there are under-eye masks which is skincare dedicated to this often-neglected area. Similar to beauty masks for the face, uniquely shaped under eye patches promise instant results in just minutes.

Instant hydration boost - The under-eye skin is inherently dry and needs moisture to stay healthy. Eye masks with nourishing formulations help hydrate the skin and lock in moisture for fresh and young-looking skin.  

Smoothens fine lines and wrinkles - Thin skin means more visible signs of aging. Under eye patches enriched with collagen help support delicate skin by boosting its structure and in the process, smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging.

Reduces puffiness and swelling - The eye area is surrounded by capillaries that retain fluid which causes puffy eyes and swelling. Stimulating Ingredients in eye patches (like caffeine) help improve circulation to de-puff eye bags and reduce swelling. 

Helps relax tired eyes - Under eye masks don’t just improve the skin. Soothing ingredients in these patches also help you relax after a long day. Eye masks are great for spa time at home and can even be worn while doing chores or working from home.
