Have you ever noticed that most people start getting fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes before anywhere else? If you haven’t noticed already, you won’t be able to miss it now!
The fact is, the eye area shows visible signs of aging before any other spot on the face, and sometimes even the body! (Some are prone to sun spots on their hands early on as well.) The reasons for these premature visible signs of aging are simple: fragility, damage, and lack of moisture.
The skin around the eyes is especially thin and delicate, which makes it more likely to become damaged. On top of that, the eye area experiences a lot of damage! It takes sun damage, physical damage (rubbed your eyes lately?), and, for many people, damage from harsh makeup products being applied and removed on a daily basis. Finally, this thin skin has fewer sebaceous glands, leading to lower moisture levels.
When you look at it that way, it makes sense that the eye area often has dark circles, puffiness or bags, fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles.
Second only to the eye area, the area surrounding the mouth ages earlier for the exact same reasons. People normally see changes to their eye area, and then notice visible signs of aging in the mouth area a few months later.
The fact that these two areas of the face show signs of aging first has led skin care experts to create a new way to describe them: the triangle zone.
As shown in the illustration above, within the large triangle zone are smaller triangle zones in need of extra care. If you’re not sure whether or not your triangle zones need more extreme skin care, ask yourself if the following statements are true for you:
When it comes time to focus on the triangle zones, Atopalm has made it as easy as possible to do so by offering two eye care products that can also be used around the mouth. These multi-tasking formulas provide exceptional anti-aging skin care while remaining as gentle and moisturizing as the other Atopalm products.
