Is it safe to use suncream on or around my eyes? 

At Peep Club, we believe in sun protection all day, every day.

5- 10% of all skin cancers occur on this tiny patch of skin around the eye - it is an extremely vulnerable area that needs protection from UV damage. 

We also know that UV exposure accelerates the formation of wrinkles. The eyes are particularly vulnerable to sun exposure for two reasons; 1) The eyes are often forgotten when it comes to sun cream application, 2) We also squint when we're in the sun - so it's a double whammy. 

There are plenty of great sun creams that are safe around the eyes. Just like your other skin products, such as cleansers, creams and serums, there will be some sun creams that are more suitable for your eyes than others. 

The key is to look for matte mineral formulas, that are ideally fragrance and alcohol-free as these will be the best tolerated around the eye area. 

There are also now specific eye sun creams which are even better because they've been formulated with this delicate part of the face in mind. Our personal favourite is Sarah Chapman Eye Insurance.
