Why are my eyes so sensitive?


The delicate skin around the eyes is often one of the first areas to react to a new product or experience a flare-up, leaving the skin itchy, flakey or red. So, why is the eye area so sensitive? The skin around our eyes is the thinnest on the whole body, with no sebaceous (oil) glands […]

Winter Skin Woes


I love winter – I can’t get enough of roaring fires, comforting meals and bracing walks, but I really don’t love what winter does to my skin!
