Compared to other facial areas, the skin surrounding our eyes is especially fragile and susceptible to more aging signs. They start to develop lines, bags and dark circles as we grow. When we are weary, our eyes show the first sign. If your eyes aren’t as energetic as they need to be, perhaps you have some serious eye care regime to patch up.
Get enough sleep. It is recommended to have at least 6 hours sleep a day to rest your body. Our eyes especially worked a lot throughout the day and there is no other to rest them except to have a nice shut-eye. So, instead of relieving yourself with endless comedy series that will only burden your eyes, manage your time well to get the rest your eyes deserved.
Use skin care products. We often neglect proper eye skin care when we can spend hundreds on facial skin care. Since our eye skin is thinner, these skin care products are designed especially for the eyes to give our eyes the necessary nourishment. Keep your eye skin moisturized and nourish them with vitamins. Some products are sensitive to light so they have to be applied and left on while you sleep.
Sun protection for your eyes is equally important as it is for your face. Prevent your eyes from aging due to the ultraviolet rays from the sun. Some of the aging effects caused by UV rays are lines, wrinkles, freckles and even skin cancers. Put on eye sunscreen to keep yourself prepared for all occasions at any location.
Don’t squint your eyes. We squint because as we move from a lighter to a darker place and vice versa, our eyes need time to adjust to the lighting. Wear sunglasses to prevent squinting under strong sunlight. Move toward or away from the object you are focusing on to avoid from squinting when there’s a problem focusing. If your vision has gotten blurry, do a thorough check up with an ophthalmologist or optician.
Camouflage your dark circles with a concealer that is a shade lighter than your skin tone. Different shades of concealers also provide varying masking effects.
To fight puffy eyes, use your eye gel that has been stored in the fridge. Or, use anything cold to reduce the swollenness. Try cold cucumbers, spoon, ice cubes. These methods will also wake you up on drowsy mornings.
Take care of your brows. Trim your eyebrows regularly, following the outline already provided by your beautician. Use eyebrow pencils that are a shade lighter than your hair colour. For a fuller brow, fill your brows with a pencil, then brush with powder.
