Your Herbal Eye-Care Rescue Kit
By Janice Cox
Our eyes animate our faces with emotion and personality. Beyond the simple glance, stare or wink, eye contact is a measure of self-confidence. Alas, the skin around your eyes is the thinnest skin on your body, and one of the first places to show signs of aging. Because the eye area is so delicate and sensitive, it can be difficult to know which products and under-eye moisturizers are safe to use.
It is especially important to take care of your eyes and the delicate skin around them. Revamp your skin-care routine to lavish care on this sensitive area with our Eye-Care Rescue Kit. The tissue around your eyes has very few oil glands (especially the under-eye area), and benefits from added moisture and nourishment. Feel confident in your beauty routine with these effective, natural eye treatment recipes that you can create at home.
