So you’ve perfected your daytime and nighttime skincare routines and even discovered products that work wonders specifically for your skin type.
While I’d love nothing more than for you to bask in that much deserved glow you have achieved for your skin, there is a small, but very important area that I feel you must always remember to take special care of as well. Yes, you guessed it - your eye area.
What Causes Dark Circles And Puffy Eyes
Most of us have had to deal with tired, puffy eyes and pesky dark circles at some point and unless someone’s found the miracle cure for it all, you’re likely to suffer from them again.
The good news is that we can all do a little something extra to improve this delicate area.
It’s a known fact that the skin around our eyes is thinner and doesn’t benefit from having its own sebaceous glands. This makes it age much quicker than the rest of our faces.
With the skin being so thin around eye area and lacking the same elastic bounce as our cheeks, it’s also the most vulnerable to developing fine lines and wrinkles from the constant movement from facial expressions.
Genetics, lack of sleep, salty foods, excessive alcohol consumption, allergies and aging contribute in the form of dark circles which appear easily under the eye areas due to the thinness of the skin. And so all these factors can combine to make our eyes look more older than the rest of our faces.
How To Treat Dark Circles And Puffy Eyes
Making an extra effort to brighten and hydrate the skin around the eye areas will help improve the elasticity and its suppleness, fight any visible signs of fatigue and protect it from environmental stressors.
So consider treating your eyes in the AM a must-do routine as it will not only help with dryness and scaliness but help in priming the area for your makeup.
To help get you going with eye treatments I’ve put together a regimen using some of the products that I personally have found to be very effective in helping me address this delicate area of my face. You can also follow along the video on how to apply these products.
There’s no need to let bright eyes out of your sight!
