Your Eyes Have It

Your eyes demand attention whenever you are talking to someone or even glancing in their direction. They are an essential feature of your face, and the skin around the eyes can bring the eyes to a healthy life or contribute to a dull, lifeless look.

Naturally, as you age, the skin surrounding the eyes develops fine lines and deeper wrinkles. This is because the delicate skin around the eyes is very different from the rest of the skin on your face. It is much thinner and has very few oil glands, which can keep it naturally moisturized. This means it dries out faster, and being thin, if not treated gently, can stretch and tear, causing bags and sagging.

For this reason is it essential to treat the eye area gently and don’t wipe or rub the eyes harshly, instead just patting the area without pulling is recommended.

Puffiness around the eyes is common on waking but can remain throughout the day for a variety of reasons, including tiredness, smoking, drinking alcohol, diet, and even hormonal changes. If you do have a problem with puffy eyes, try elevating your head slightly at night on a higher pillow and drinking plenty of water throughout the day to cleanse out your blood system. One cause of puffiness can be as simple as the cream you are using. Eyes are naturally sensitive and will water continuously to cleanse them of impurities. When using creams around the eye area, make sure you don’t apply them too closely to the eye and seek out natural skincare creams without harsh chemicals and additives.

The cream will creep about 1/2 inch / 1 centimeter by itself, so apply creams on the bone below the eye area. The cream will make its way further on the skin but not into the eyes themselves. When using eye cream place a little of the cream onto your ring finger and gently pat the cream around the eye and dab gently to absorb, do not rub. You only need to apply a tiny amount of cream around the eye to bring satisfactory results. In fact, too much cream can irritate and cause the puffiness you are trying to avoid.
