Not all skin is created equal. For example, the skin of the soles is thick and hard, the skin of the scalp has embedded hair follicles, and the skin of the nose and cheeks tends to have particularly active sebaceous glands. The skin around the eye has its own special traits:
- It has virtually no sebacious glands, which makes it highly prone to dryness.
- It is much thinner and more sensitive than other facial skin.
- It overlies a particularly dense capillary network and has minimal fat padding, which makes the eye area prone to puffiness.
- It is stressed by frequent eye movements and squinting.
All of the above often makes the eye area the first place where signs of aging appear on the face. Most of us want to look some years younger than our chronological age. If you look at faces of twenty five and thirty five year old people, you will notice that the main difference is usually in the eye area: thirty five year olds will be a lot more likely to have fine lines and bags under the eyes; some will even have crow's feet. Not surprisingly, when we try to estimate someone's age, the appearance of eye area is always one of the key factors. Therefore, if you want to keep looking young as long as possible, it may be insufficient to take care of your skin in general. You need to neutralize a natural tendency of the skin in the eye area to age faster than the rest of your face.
