While a lot of people might be neglecting under eyes, the skin around your eyes is one of the most important parts of your facial skin. First, the skin around your eyes is very thin and more delicate than the skin on other parts of your body. During the day, your eyes work a lot throughout the day, from blinking to expressing emotions, can cause premature ageing.
Moreover, genetic traits, UV rays, environmental factors, and lifestyle choices can also cause the skin around the eyes to age more quickly. No matter how old you are, it’s never too early or too late to take care of your under eyes. Here are some easy tips to add to your beauty routine.
1. Moisturise Under Eyes
Moisturising skin is one of those underrated steps. By moisturising regularly, it can help plump up and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The same applies for our eye area since they lack oil glands, they can be more prone to dryness. You can use your face moisturiser for the skin around your eyes as long as it doesn’t irritate your eyes and provides a sufficient amount of moisture.
2. Check the ingredients
It’s important to know which ingredients work best with specific skin concerns. For more general concerns, look for ingredients with antioxidants. The powerful properties help remove free radicals in the skin that are triggered by environmental stressors, cleanser, and pollutants.
3. Be gentle to your skin
It's important to be gentle to skin whether removing eye makeup to applying products onto the skin around your eyes. As mentioned before, the skin under eyes skin is very thin. Because of this, the pressure from our daily activities has the potential to contribute to extra fine lines.
4. Don't forget SPF
UV rays can play a big role in the premature skin process and can lead the skin under your eyes to become darker. A broad-spectrum sunscreen is essential part of any skincare routine and should be applied every day.
5. Treat yourself to a massage
If you notice that puffy eyes tend to look more obvious when you’re tired or haven’t been sleeping well, a simple massage might help. Puffy eyes may be the result of a meal high in salt, lack of sleep, or even too much sleep. By massaging under your eyes, it can help improve the circulation around them. The pressure from the massage may help drain excess fluid around this area and reduce puffiness.
6. Have a healthy sleep, eat, exercise
The best way to improve overall skin's health is simple: just get more sleep, exercise, and have a healthy diet. Getting at least six hours of sleep every night and regularly exercise to improve blood circulation.
