Tips for youthful eyes

“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.”

Audrey Hepburn

 

It’s been said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, but did you know that eyes can also be the window that reveals your age? Undereye skin is considerably thinner than skin elsewhere on the body and puffiness and dark circles in this area – caused by lack of sleep, excessive drinking, and even hereditary factors – can age your face.  Proper care can keep your eyes looking smooth and youthful by reducing the damage.

Here are a few helpful hints:

 

  • Skin Care – The skin around your eyes is delicate and requires special attention. Make sure to choose a product suited to your specific skin care concerns (puffiness, dark circles) and formulations (cream, gel, etc.). Avoid harsh cleansers and skin care products around the eyes.

 

  • Pat, Don’t Rub! – Be gentle with skincare, makeup removal and makeup around the eye area.  Be careful not to pull or stretch the delicate eye area, as this thin, delicate skin loses elasticity over time. You can very lightly smooth your eye gel with clockwise circles starting at brow and over the very top of a cheek bone.

 

  • Wear Sunglasses – Sunglasses (even in winter!) will help to reduce squinting, which causes wrinkles, crows feet, and frown lines.

 

  • Get Some Sleep! – “Tired Eyes” are the direct result of not enough sleep and can add years to your appearance. A lack of restful sleep can cause puffiness and dark circles to appear.  Don’t think you can “catch up” on weekends!  Good daily sleep habits can keep your eyes looking fresh and bright.

 

  • Fuller Brows – The current trend is toward fuller, more natural brows. Brows may thin from years of over-tweezing or just from aging and can make your eyes appear older.  Creating a fuller brow with brow powders, pencils or fillers can take years off your appearance.

 

Just remember – a few tiny crinkles at the corners of your eyes can be beautiful when  caused by a bright, genuine smile.  Let a smile light up your face and your eyes will show your youthful joy!
