Under Eye Skin is Thin!! 👀 What to do:
While we wish it weren’t so, the skin around your eyes is one part of your body that can show the earliest signs of premature aging, particularly without proper care.
✨ BUT WHY? ✨
The skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate than the skin on other parts of your body. And because your eyes work a lot throughout the day (blinking, rubbing, expressing emotions).
Other reasons the skin around the eyes age more quickly:
genetic reasons,UV rays, external stressors, lifestyle choices
💧 Moisturize 💧
Putting moisturizer on your skin plumps it up and potentially reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Our eye area lacks oil glands (our skin’s natural moisturizer), so they can be more prone to dryness.
You can use your regular face cream for your under eyes, but since the skin is thin it can be sensitive to regular face cream. If you feel a stinging sensation or see any redness, invest in an eye cream.
WHAT I USE:
Eye Cream: GlamGlow Bright Eyes Illuminating Anti Fatigue Eye Cream
Under Eye Masks: Beauty 360 Hydrogel Hydrating Eye Mask
💨 Puffiness 💨
Getting enough sleep or drinking enough water are huge factors to keeping puffiness away, but ingredients like caffeine and green tea are great for calming the skin.
WHAT I USE:
My secret weapon is using a jade roller right when I wake up in the morning! I keep it in the fridge for an extra cooling effect. I always role from the inside of my face out, and use the small end for the under eyes.
🤲 Gentle 🤲
From removing your eye makeup to applying products onto the skin around your eyes, it’s important to be gentle, because of the thin skin.
Always apply products with your ring or pinky finger, lightly tapping it in circling your eye area
WHAT I USE:
Oil cleansing is imperative to the health of your under eyes, it’s strong enough to take off eye make up without having to vigorously rub.
