All about eyes: The Dos and Don'ts of eye care

Heed these cardinal rules of eye care to unlock the secrets of visibly brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin.

Given that you blink 10,000 times a day, use 22 muscles at any given moment and the skin framing your eyes is delicate, it’s not surprising that this area is the first to show signs of aging. No need to fret – these dos and donts will keep it fresh and healthy: 

DON’T leave make-up overnight

Even the best make-up can aggravate skin. Use 65A EYE MAKE-UP REMOVER LOTION to clear away all eye make-up, including waterproof products, before starting your day or getting your beauty rest.

DO be gentle

Whether you’re a tapper, dabber or massager, one rule applies: be gentle and avoid tugging or pulling.

DON’T rush

Eye creams, serums and gels take time to absorb – give your products at least one minute to seep in.

DO ask experts

Use qualified beauticians to find a solution specific to your needs and set your skin on the right path with a dedicated eye treatment like the Modelling Mask Eye Treatment by Maria Galland Paris.

DON’T delay anti-aging

Prevention is better than cure. A set like SUBLIME EYES POUCH MILLE will address fine lines before they appear.

DO layer

One cream can’t meet all your needs. Use an eye cream with your daily face cream to provide the necessary care for your delicate eye area. Look towards high-quality products like FABULOUS EYES POUCH REJUVENATING or MAGNIFICENT EYES POUCH HYDRATION sets – now in exclusive packaging, designed by a french artist, to transport you to Paris.

DON’T forget sun protection

According to WHO, sun exposure may cause “up to 90% of the visible changes commonly attributed to aging”. Sun protection like 193 PROTECTIVE CARE FOR THE FACE is imperative, especially around the eyes, to avoid fine lines and wrinkles which appear first around the eye area, due to the thinness of the skin.

DO be fussy

The skin care you choose makes all the difference, so be fastidious. Set up an appointment with a professional Maria Galland Paris beauty therapist to find out what your skin requires and why. Then follow expert recommendations to find products that match your individual needs with high-quality ingredients.

DON’T forget primer

526 EYESHADOW PRIMER provides an even surface, longer-lasting results for your eyeshadow and eye make-up and does double-duty as a highlighter. Complete the look with the limited edition 522 INTENSIVE MASCARA and 524 INFINITE WATERPROOF EYE PENCIL in lavender from the new spring/summer look 2018 MACARONS DE PARIS.
