Tracing the Roots of Dehydration & 6 Factors that Make It Worse

The skin around your eyes is delicate, fragile, and unfortunately, prone to dehydration. It's not just the area's sensitivity that makes it susceptible, but also the fact that it's up to 10 times thinner than the rest of your face. The absence of sebaceous and sweat glands leaves it without a natural hydration shield.

Now, consider this: every day, thousands of blinks and countless expressions—be it a frown, a smile, or a surprised gasp—put your eye area under constant stress.

This repetitive motion amplifies the skin's dehydration and fragility, and over time, fine lines and wrinkles start to appear and become etched in your skin.

There's more. These lifestyle factors and your surroundings can also leave your eye area parched:

  1. Sleep Deprivation: When you skimp on sleep, your skin misses out on much-needed regeneration time. This can lead to water loss, dehydration, and even dark circles and puffiness.
  2. Stress: Stress can increase cortisol production, which impacts skin quality and can lead to dehydration.
  3. Pollution: Fine particles in the air can breach your skin's protective barrier, making it look dull and tired.
  4. Skin Care Products and Makeup Removal: Aggressive products and vigorous makeup removal can harm your skin and cause water loss.
  5. Blue Light: The light from screens can alter the skin barrier and contribute to dehydration.
  6. Aging: As we age, our skin produces less collagen, making it more vulnerable to dehydration and fine lines.

That's why it's crucial to nourish your eye area with moisturizing products specifically designed for delicate under-eye skin.  And why you need to maintain a regular skincare routine to prevent further dehydration.

The Masterplan for Eye Hydration

First, choose a moisturizer that's tailored for your skin type and the delicate eye area. These moisturizers hydrate the skin, improve blood circulation, and fend off dehydration, fine lines, and dark circles.

When applying, use your ring finger—the gentlest of them all—to gently pat the product onto your skin. Avoid any rubbing or pulling to prevent further dehydration and the onset of fine lines and wrinkles.

Consistency is key. Make a regular skincare routine for your eye area your mantra. Include a moisturizing eye mask weekly and a daily application of moisturizer morning and night.

Here at Kadalys, we swear by our Thirst Quenching Eye Mask, enriched with Green Banana Bio-Active, Glycerin, and Red Algae. Its ultra-fresh gel texture instantly revives your eyes and erases signs of fatigue.

Regular use of this fragrance-free formula, suitable for all skin types, helps strengthen the skin barrier and keep it hydrated.

How does it work? Apply the mask for 15 minutes once or twice a week on clean, dry skin, then gently pat it in to stimulate circulation.

Pro tip: for a refreshing, decongesting effect, chill the mask before use. This feels especially great during the summer months.

Shining the Spotlight on Red Algae Complex

Our eye mask wouldn't be the same without the star player—Red Algae Complex. This powerful, natural ingredient holds the secret to deeply moisturizing your eye area and combating dehydration.

But how does it do it?

Red algae is brimming with polysaccharides, macromolecules that boost collagen and elastin production. These proteins are the custodians for your skin's firmness and elasticity, especially crucial for the thin and delicate eye area. By ramping up their production, red algae extract can soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles and help enhance skin texture.

Moreover, red algae's moisturizing prowess ensures your skin stays nourished and maintains optimal hydration levels, thus keeping dehydration at bay.

Last but not least, this red algae complex is a treasure trove of antioxidants. These shield your skin from free radicals, which cause premature skin aging.

As the skin around your eyes is vulnerable to UV rays and pollution, these antioxidants play a vital role in preventing skin degradation.

Ready to Look Rested & Refreshed?

It's time to give your eye contour the hydration it needs. With the right routine, products, and a star ingredient like Red Algae Complex, radiant and youthful eyes are just a blink away.
