The skin is very delicate, especially the areas around your eyes.Not only harsh weathers but several other factors can affect this delicate area causing blood vessels to show, shrinking of the skin, puffiness, redness or bags and also, dark circles developing under the eye area.
- Shrinking of the skin around the eyes can be as a result of dehydration of the skin. In order to avoid this, make sure you wash your face thoroughly every night and use a mild cleansing product or a few drops of baby shampoo to cleanse the eye area especially if you have very sensitive skin. A moisturizer, preferably one containing hyaluronic acid should then be used and properly massaged into this area until its completely absorbed by the skin.
- Puffiness appears as redness and bags appearing under the eyes or on the eyelids. This can be caused by anti-aging products, especially those containing perfume. The skin around your eye is very delicate, so if you must use anti-aging products or some other face/eye creams, choose one that is perfume free.
* Alcohol also causes puffiness. Alcohol dehydrates the skin when taken and puffiness is usually a symptom of this. I'm not saying you should deny yourself a glass of cocktail every other day but make sure you take plenty of water afterwards and sleep on a lofty pillow.
- Blood vessels showing under the eyelids are actually very common. Its caused mostly by harsh products, so always choose products containing Vitamin K because it stimulates blood circulation in the skin around the eyes.
The eye area is one delicate part of our total facial beauty that ages quickly and gets affected by the most unthinkable things. So, take out time to care for it specially, so you don't start concealing and concealing all your flaws at a very early stage.
Weekends are also a good day to relax with a soaked teabag or cucumber slice on your eyes for a few minutes. It won't also hurt to rest your eyes for a few hours over the weekend without staring into your computer screen or phones.
