Wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t age?
If we had the gift of eternally young looking skin?
Sadly getting older is inevitable and the eye area is one of the first tale tale signs of ageing. However, do not despair, whilst we can’t turn the clocks back or freeze time, we can help you look after your eyes so they sparkle and shine at any age.
Whilst genetics play a role in your skin, a healthy lifestyle can help manage dark circles, bags and fine lines around the eyes.
Giving up smoking is a must if you want better skin. As well as causing cancer, making you smell and being expensive, smoking makes your skin look sallow, tired and accelerates ageing.
Eating well is key to healthy looking skin that glows.
Drinking water is a must for well-hydrated skin.
Stress can make your skin more sensitive so take steps to manage this and take time out for yourself every now and again.
Sleep not only rejuvenates your skin, but also makes it glow. A fresh pillowcase will also help and if you can push the boat out, a silk one works wonders.
Get The Routine Right
Once you have a handle on your lifestyle, next is setting up a skin care routine just for your eyes. The skin around your eyes is very delicate and needs a little TLC. Extra care should be taken when choosing products as well as when applying them.
Keeping make up on over night is a no-no from the teenage years but as you get older it becomes even more important. Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make Up Remover instantly dissolves all traces of eye make-up, including stubborn mascara. Not only do the Silk Amino Acids clean away make up and dirt they also help strengthen lashes and condition the delicate eyelid area.
For the best results:
Apply a small amount of the oil-free, alcohol-free gel to wet cotton wool.
Remove make-up by gently massaging the gel over the eye area.
Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Simply applying any old face cream onto the skin around your eyes will not do them any favours. Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex is a breakthrough treatment that has been designed specifically to gently tackle wrinkles and crow’s feet plus puffiness, dark circles and sensitivity. Smooth and pat the lotion around the eye area, working from the outer corner inwards. By doing this not only will the ingredients soak into your skin, your circulation will also be boosted.
For daytime protection, go with Dermalogica Total Eye Care. The alpha hydroxy acids in this cream protect and repair whilst re-texturisung the skin, reduce puffiness and deal with fine lines. The non-chemical SPF15 sunblock makes this an everyday essential and if you have been burning the candle at both ends, the light diffusers help hide dark circles and give the skin a beautiful translucent finish.
Your eyes will never be as young as they are today so love what you see and smile from within.
