The eyes are one of if not the first area to show sign of ageing. Whether is lack of sleep, dehydration, premature ageing or just life following some handy tips can keep the eyes fresh and bright all day long.
Water, nothing new but a great reminder that keeping hydrated is a must. Make sure you drink water throughout the day and into the evening so your body can absorb as and when it requires.

Eye creams are a huge part of the daily routine. The skin around the eyes is around 0.5mm thick therefore your normal products may be too heavy. An eye cream should be light and absorbable. When applying an eye cream, you only need a rice grain sized amount of product. To apply follow the bone structure, between the brows, below the lash line, onto the brow bone and finishing at crows feet (take this as far out as the temples). We advise using a retinol based product at night to repair and restore followed by a brightening eye cream for during the day to illuminate and hydrate.
Due to the nature of our collagen production it slows down and depletes as we age (around 1% each year from your mid 20s!). Helping to stimulate the collagen will reinforce the structure and strength of the skin, almost like scaffolding. At The Source we do this by using a radio frequency treatment called Remodel. Remodel creates a thermal reaction within the tissue to stimulate the fibroblasts. This creates new collagen and elastin giving a more taught and firm skin. With zero downtime the skin is left feeling plump and lifted over a course of treatments.
Never underestimate the power of a good brow shape! Having your brows shaped and tinted can take years off. Brows frame the face and create a more youthful fresh look.

As one inspirational woman once said…
“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eye” –
