There’s a reason why the skin around the eyes tends to look older first: the skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate than the skin on other parts of your body. And because your eyes work a lot throughout the day, from blinking to expressing your emotions, this alone can cause premature aging. Yet no matter how old you are, it’s never too early or too late to give your eyes the love they deserve.
So if maintaining a youthful complexion is important to you, it’s vital to use an eye cream daily. The most commonly asked question about moisturizing this part of your face is whether you can use your face moisturizer for the skin around your eyes. The answer is yes. As long as it doesn’t irritate your eyes and provides a sufficient amount of moisture, you’re good.
Remedies For Beautiful Eyes
1. Puffy Eyes / Eye Bags
The appearance of puffiness can be due to the swelling of tissues around the eyes caused by fluid retention, loose skin and falling fat. Avoid overconsumption of salt. As we age, collagen breakdown of the layer of tissue that holds the fat in the eye area weakens and causes drooping and sagging. Avoid rubbing the delicate eye area, and sleep on your back, elevating your head slightly to prevent fluid from accumulating while you sleep. Apply antiaging eye creams day and night with appropriate eye massage to promote better blood circulation around the eyes.
2. Under Eye Dark Circles
Under eye dark circles are one of our most frustrating skin concerns. Regardless of your dark circles are hereditary or a result of your lifestyle or environment, the eye care tips below can help reduce them:
Good quality eye mask helps to inhibit melanin production, promotes circulation, replenishes collagen and eliminates dark circle.
Black tea contains tannic acid and caffeine, which constrict vessels to minimize dark under eye veins. Tea bags may stain light or very dry skin, so moisturize before applying cold tea bags to eyes.
Vitamin C, particularly Iron supplement, can be effective as iron deficiencies will often cause dark circles.
Drink plenty of water to flush out toxins in your body that can cause dark circles.
Use mild waterproof eye makeup remover to remove eye makeup thoroughly at the end of the day.
3. Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As we get older, cell turnover slows and dead skin cells build up around the eyes. Lack of moisture can increase the appearance of fine lines around your eyes. The collagen breaks down reducing the elasticity in the skin and causing lines. Fine lines can be minimised by using eye creams and eye masks that promote cell turnover and help rebuild collagen.
Get All The Essential Vitamins And Minerals
Include colorful vegetables and fruits like spinach, broccoli, carrots, and sweet potato in your diet. Also, consume foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These foods are the best sources of vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants and help prevent most eye problems and vision-related issues.
