Do you want to know how to look younger? Of course, you do! We all want to find the fountain of youth and keep our skin looking as young and fresh as possible. And while there’s no one magic solution, some simple rules for skin care around the eyes can help you achieve a youthful appearance.
Choose the right care
When choosing a care line for the area around the eyes, it is important not to overdo it and not overload the skin. As long as you are concerned only with imperceptible mimic wrinkles, cooling water-based gels with plant extracts and vitamins is enough. They moisturize, tone, improve microcirculation, and even out the surface, and you don’t need anything else right now.
The gels are quickly absorbed, which is a nice bonus. It means that you can start doing makeup right after using them. For example, suppose wrinkles have become deeper and more noticeable. In that case, it’s time to start using more serious remedies like creams and serums with hyaluronic acid, panthenol, allantoin, aloe extract, and vitamins A and E.
After 40 years, your skin starts losing moisture and elasticity more quickly. Therefore, you need products that can at least slow down these processes during this time. These products contain natural oils and biostimulants like royal jelly, ginseng extract, collagen, and elastin.
You can use products with an appropriate mark or micellar water for the skin around your eyes. If you want to use mascara and eye makeup that lasts a long time, it is better to use a two-phase product: oil dissolves waterproof pigment, and tonic moisturizes and tones. So, we figured out the jars. Let’s move on to proper cleansing.
- Get three cotton pads. Cut one of them in half. Put a little makeup remover on the halves. Put the halves under your eyes, close to the lower lash line. Doing this will help keep the mascara from smearing.
- Apply makeup remover to two other discs and apply them to your eyelids. Do not rub your skin.
- Gently rub your eyelids with your fingers. Be careful not to touch the area under your eyes. You can also grab your eyelashes.
Apply moisturizer to your eyebrows. Close your eyes and place your thumb and first finger at the base of one eyebrow. Next, move your fingers from the base of the eyebrow to the temple with gentle pinches. Repeat five times on each eyebrow. You can do this massage in the morning and evening.
To reduce the cream, put it in the refrigerator for at least half an hour. To fight bags under the eyes, use ice cubes from frozen solutions of herbs like chamomile, parsley, and mint. Pour the herbs into hot boiled water and let it steep. Then pour into molds and send to the freezer.
Vitamin C products can help with dark circles under your eyes. They make the skin a little lighter and brighter from the inside.
You also need to exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells and help the active ingredients in your eye cream penetrate more deeply. You can use a special eye scrub or just a cotton pad soaked in micellar water. Gently massage the cleansed area with circular movements, paying particular attention to the inner and outer corners of the eyes. Use a scrub no more than 1–2 times a week.
