“The skin around the eyes is very fine and delicate, both in women and men,” explains Elena Ramos, pharmacist, expert in dermocosmetics and co-director of The Secret Lab .

“In addition, the orbicularis oculi muscles are very active throughout life (smiling, gesturing, etc.), which causes this area to deteriorate more quickly, giving rise to the wrinkles known as crow’s feet, bags, drooping of the eyelid. If you are also a person who spends many hours in front of the computer (straining your eyes) and / or practices sports outdoors, this deterioration multiplies (and no, sunglasses do not protect that area) ”.

A reality, this one that Ramos shows, makes many people care especially about the care of this area of ​​the face in their beauty routine and look for effective products to treat the area. “In addition, there are small tricks to avoid dark circles and bags: apply cold to the area, try to get enough sleep, massage when applying the contour with small pressure to drain (from the tear duct out) “, recalls Ramos.

To obtain good results we must also take care of what we eat and avoid a diet with a high salt content so as not to retain fluids. However, “most of the time, bags and dark circles have some hereditary component against which it is very difficult, if not impossible, to fight”, explains the expert.

For those who are looking for a specific product for the eye contour in EL PAÍS Escaparate, we have dived into the online catalog of stores such as Sephora, Druni, MiFarma, Kiehls or Amazon to select ten anti-dark circles, anti-puffiness cosmetics and to lift droopy eyelids. As Ramos recalls, “it is essential that the texture is very light since the skin, being so fine, absorbs a lot of product and, otherwise, fat balls can form around the contour”.

“If we start caring for this area, we can start using all-in-one products , that is, products with very light textures that hydrate, protect and slow down aging both on the face and in the contour area”, recalls the expert in dermocosmetics. Regarding the composition, “we need active ingredients that promote hydration and the prevention of aging, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and powerful antioxidants that protect against all types of radiation”.
