Are your eyes the first thing you notice when you look in the mirror and the appearance surrounding them? Whether you’re all puffy from a bad night’s sleep or they’re simply highlighting your hereditary elements such as those pesky dark circles, the skin around the eye area is your face megaphone screaming out to the world, it’s your face’s truth telling everyone to much.
The skin around your eyes is very thin compared to the rest of your face and therefore should be treated differently. Think of your eye area like your washing, you wouldn’t dream of putting your silk or cashmere in with a towel wash.
In today’s world of one size fits all we mistakenly think that applying our day cream around the eye area will take care of it but that is not the case, our eyes need a different delivery system and different ingredients to manage the puffiness and break down the dark circles.
A few of the usual suspects that create problems around the eye area:
Alcohol and salty foods are the main culprits when it comes to food that can cause the puffiness around the eyes so cut down on the post work G&T and step away from the processed, salty foods and increase your fruit and veggie intake and drink lots of water
In addition to hydrating your skin internally, give your skin that extra TLC by giving it the proper moisture it requires. When your skin is dry it immediately translates to wrinkles around the eyes giving you a tired look, moisture is key to bringing the delicate skin back to life. You can do this with eye products and in clinic treatments.
Make sure to always cleanse your face thoroughly to get rid of your makeup any leftovers collect in the creases and can block pores.
Whether it’s hereditary or your hormones causing dark circles under the eyes, brightening ingredients can help even out the skin tone even on those darker pigments around the eye area.
