If you’re on the hunt for advanced signs of skin aging, you needn’t look further than your eyes. Fine lines? Dark circles? Puffiness? These are the usual suspects for aging eyes and the “watchouts” for fine lines and wrinkles elswhere. Not surprising, the appearance of such age-related factors around the eyes is enough to send many of us scurrying to our nearest esthetician pleading for help.
The skin around the eye is delicate and needs lots of tender-loving care. There are many ways to ensure that your eyes won’t betray you as you battle mother nature. Here are 5 very easy things that you can do on a regular basis to keep your eyes looking beautiful.
Nothing is better to fill in fine lines in the delicate tissue around the eye than proper hydration. Having good moisture content in your skin adds volume and helps the skin to function at an optimal level. Drink your 8 glasses of water every day for truly beautiful eyes.
- Use an Eye Cream
The skin around the eye is the only area on the body that does not produce any oil. Adding hydration and nutrients to the eye area is vital to keeping the skin plump and firm. MEG 21 with Supplamine®’s Eye Treatment is clinically proven to reverse the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles, as it hydrates, renews, brightens and firms the delicate and easily damaged skin beneath and around the eyes
- Wear Sunglasses
Wearing sunglasses offers an air of chic mystery to your persona. (We’re fans of the larger, bold styles.)Wearing sunglasses protects the delicate eye area from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. They also help keep your eyes shaded from harsh light. This reduces squinting in the sun, which over works the facial muscles around the eyes, which, in turn, creases the skin.
- Sleep On Your Back
Puffiness and under-eye bags could be something as simple as too much fluid in the tissue around the eye area. If you’re a belly sleeper you may notice that when you wake in the morning, fluid will have settled in the facial tissue causing puffiness. To reduce puffiness, try sleeping on your back to help keep fluid out of the facial skin.
- Cool It Down
There’s a reason you always see cucumber slices on women’s eyes in ads for spas! The cooling, anti-inflammatory properties of cucumber are wonderful to reduce puffiness. However, if you don’t’ have cucumber around, you can use cold spoons, cold compresses, even cold green tea bags.
