Step 1: Always keep your skin Moisturized
Moisturizing your skin is one of those underrated steps that often falls by the wayside but shouldn’t. Imagine our skin as a grape. When it loses water, it starts to shrink, and wrinkles can appear. It’s the most important step in any skin care routine.
But once you put that water back in, it can help plump up and potentially reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The same applies for our eye area. Since they lack oil glands (our skin’s natural moisturizer), they can be more prone to dryness.
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.
Keep in mind, however, that since the skin is thin around your eyes, it can be sensitive to regular face cream. If you feel a stinging sensation or your eyes turn watery or red, avoid using your regular face moisturizer, and instead invest in an eye cream.
Eye creams are often formulated with ingredients less likely to have an adverse effect on your eyes but contain enough active ingredients that may help reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
When you’re on the hunt for the right eye cream, it’s important to know which ingredients to look for based on what you’re trying to treat. Below you’ll find ingredients I suggest choosing, based on your concern:
For fine lines
Aside from hydrating humectants, used to reduce the loss of moisture, you’ll want to look for ingredients that provide an immediate “plump up” effect.
The remedy for puffy eyes can be as easy as getting enough sleep or drinking enough water. But when it comes to skin care ingredients, the following may help reduce puffiness:
green tea and coffee berry polyphenols
For general concerns
For more general concerns about the skin around your eyes, look for antioxidants These powerful ingredients help remove free radicals in the skin that are triggered by UV radiation, smoking, and pollutants. Moreover, they may also help put a brake on the aging process.
Look for the following:
vitamin B3 (niacinamide)
Always Be Gentle
From removing your eye makeup to applying products onto the skin around your eyes, it’s important to be gentle. The skin under your eyes is very thin. Because of this, the extra pressure from our daily activities has the potential to contribute to extra fine lines. The following are a few tips for ways to be gentler during your skin care routine:
Dab your products around the eyes, circling your eye area. Don’t forget the upper eyelid.
Repeat until the product is fully absorbed into the skin.
Sun protection is a must
Sun exposure can play a big role in the skin aging process, and can lead the skin under your eyes to become darker.
A broad-spectrum sunscreen is truly an indispensable part of any skin care routine and should be applied every day. Even if it looks gloomy outside, UVA rays can still cause damage.
Also, don’t forget your upper eyelid. This is one of the most overlooked areas when it comes to applying sunscreen.
Do a gentle massage.
If you notice that your puffy eyes tend to come and go but look more obvious when you’re tired or haven’t been sleeping well, a simple massage might do the trick.
Other than some genetic factors, fluid retention can cause puffy eyes. This may be the result of a meal high in salt, lack of sleep, or even too much sleep.
Massaging under your eyes can help improve the circulation around them. The pressure from the massage may help drain excess fluid around this area and reduce puffiness.
And if you’re able to invest a bit of cash, a refrigerated jade roller or ice roller may also help you relax the tension around this area and reduce puffiness.
Sleep, eat well, exercise, repeat
When it comes to changing your lifestyle habits and protecting the skin around your eyes, I’m a big advocate for what shows on the outside reflects what’s happening on the inside.
get more sleep
try to follow a healthy diet
I try to get at least six hours of sleep every night and regularly exercise to improve blood circulation. For me, when I don’t get enough sleep or exercise, not only do I feel fatigue much easier, but the skin around my eyes will become darker, puffier, and look “unhealthy.”
There are so many different ways to give that much-needed love to the skin around your eyes. From moisturizing and sun protection to getting more sleep, implementing these game changers into your beauty routine, even if just one at a time, can help you on your way to improving the skin around your eyes.
