Did you know that, on average, you blink about 10,000 times per day? The skin around your eyes is very thin and constantly in use - it tends to become marked more easily. It often betrays how you slept, your life rhythm, and your age. This is a good reason to take good care of it, even though many women do not see the point of combining this with a hydrating cream. But we think it's that extra beauty step to make your gaze glow with youthfulness!
What is an eye contour?
While an eye contour cream is mainly used for hydration, the product must also protect against premature skin aging. Using eye contour cream promotes the blood’s microcirculation, which is weak in this area of the face, and reaches dark circles and bags under the eyes that make you look tired. Used in combination with a day/night cream, it keeps the skin around your eyes healthy.
Using specifically formulated marine active ingredients, the PHYTOMER laboratory offers a range of eye contour care products.
Why use a product made specifically for the eye contour area?
Finer and more fragile, the skin around the eyes has specific characteristics that require adapted care. Virtually devoid of the hydrolipidic film that protects the skin and low in sebaceous glands, the eye contour area easily shows marks and tends to age more quickly than other areas of the face.
With dark circles and bags under the lower eyelid, eyes look tired and lose their radiance. Using a specifically formulated product gives your eyes a boost, eliminating and reducing signs of fatigue. It also helps slow down the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, working as a preventive anti-aging care product.
Plus, the composition of an eye contour is different from other care products, because it is specifically formulated for this area of the face. The product can be in contact with the eyes through capillary action, so it doesn’t have any irritants and won’t hurt your eyes.
In combination with a day/night cream in your beauty routine, eye contour cream is the ultimate weapon for refreshed eyes!
How to choose an effective eye contour cream?
You’ll need a bit of observation to choose the right eye contour cream. Depending on your age, your needs, and your skin type, learn to identify your skin’s problems to give your eyes that youthful look.
An anti-aging eye contour cream
Wrinkles and fine lines are often the first sign of skin aging. To reduce them, choose care products with plumping active ingredients that rejuvenate your eyes.

At what age should you start using eye contour cream?
Even though life-long good hygiene is the key to beautiful skin, hydration also plays a crucial role in your skin’s health. It is recommended to start using an eye contour cream around 25 years of age, the age when cell renewal starts to slow down. People with dryer skin can start before, because their skin often ages prematurely.
How do you correctly apply an eye contour cream?
Needless to say, you should apply your cream after completely cleaning your face. If your daily beauty routine involves several care products, use your eye contour after your serum and before your day/night cream!
- Take a small amount of product on the tip of your index finger and apply it on the skin around your eyes.
- Using the tips of your fingers, lightly tap the inside corners toward the outside corners of your eyes. Perform the same movement under your brow arches.
- Don’t try to make the cream penetrate your skin by rubbing it. Work gently by slightly tapping around your eye, starting from the lower eyelid and going upward toward your eyebrow. This subtle massage will also activate blood circulation.
Did you know? The area around your eyes needs to be hydrated day and night to keep a fresh look. Apply your eye contour at morning and at night in combination with a hydrating cream. You are now equipped with an effective youth ritual.
