Are some areas more sensitive than others?
In the face, the eye contour is particularly sensitive. It is therefore essential to use a specific product for this area because, among other things, the pH of the tear duct is 7 compared to that of the rest of the face, which is 5.5, and when a suitable product is not applied, it is common for irritation to occur in this area.
