Health and exercises for eyes The delicate skin around the eyes does not have any sebaceous glands to ensure a natural lubrication. However, it is in constant motion : the eyes blink, smile, open and close thousands of times a day. This is why skin loses moisture and becomes prematurely wrinkled. What can be done ? Never rub eyes ! When removing make-up, begin at the lower eyelid at the outer corner, moving towards the nose and then over the upper eyelid. Use Eye Make-up Remover Lotion, or Eye Make-up Remover Gel for stubborn waterproof mascara. Moisturize the eye contour with Eye Contour Double Cream before bedtime and Eye Contour Gel in the morning. Use a light touch when applying make-up and avoid moving the skin. Avoid squinting. Avoid screwing up your eyes. Wear good sun glasses. Treat tired eyes by covering with a cool, moist compress for five minutes. Have your vision checked regularly by an optician or an ophthalmologist.
