Hey Bright Eyes!

The delicate area around the eyes is much thinner than other parts of the body because it does not have subcutaneous fatty tissue, which makes it particularly sensitive and prone to wrinkles. Morning application of eye creams is a must to nourish and protect your eye contour area during the day. 


› Always warm your eye cream or balm between your two ring fingers and apply lightly from inner to outer, in the direction of lymph flow.

› We found that the use eye creams or balm at night is likely to cause puffy morning eyes, and you don’t need environment protection overnight. 

› Lighter night care in the form of Night Serum or Regenerating Serum applied to your face, and also to your eye contour at night. 

Use your Dr. Hauschka Cream Mask (Revitalising, Firming, Hydrating or Soothing) on the eye contour area as an ‘eye mask’ once or twice a week.

› Keep hydrated.

› Have an eye test once every couple of years, because you don’t want to be unnecessarily squinting or straining your eyes, if you need glasses.

› Give your eyes a rest, have a screen break and lay cool tea bags over your eyes, or even better use Eye Revive.
