So, what’s so great about these eye patches and do they actually make a difference? Well, keep on reading to more.
Just like face masks, there are plenty of benefits when it comes to eye patches. These little patches are packed with nutrients that are ideal for reducing signs of ageing on the delicate skin around the eyes.
There are various types of eye patches claiming to have various benefits, but the most common advantages are listed below:
Eye patches that are enriched with essential oils like mint, lavender, caffeine and chamomile help reduce the so-called racoon eyes while brightening up the skin and reducing puffiness. So, if you find yourself with tired eyes for your early morning meeting, just slap these patches on and keep them for 20 minutes and you’ll notice a visible change.
Collagen enriched eye patches are great if you want to keep the skin looking young and firm. These patches help fight free radicals and reduce the signs of ageing a.k.a. fine lines and wrinkles.
As you know, the skin around the eyes is delicate and one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Eye patches help hydrate the skin and keep it nourished, soft and supple.
This skin routine is not rocket science. It is pretty easy and just like using a face mask, after sticking them on, you can kick your feet up and relax.
- First, you need to wash your face clean and remove all trace of makeup and dirt. It’s beneficial to use the double-cleaning method before applying the eye patches.
- Toner and cleansing go hand-in-hand. Once you’ve wiped your face dry, dab on a bit of toner to balance out your pH levels.
- Now for the star of the show. Apply the patches and leave them on for 15-20 min
- Remove and apply a serum or eye cream.
