Pamper Your Eyes with these Simple Eye Care Tips

If you suffer from dark circles, fine lines, or puffiness, your eyes are not alone.  Many people share these common eye area issues.  Eye area issues can result from genetics, exposure to UV rays, external stressors, or other lifestyle choices.  If you want to rejuvenate the skin around your eyes and achieve a healthier, more youthful appearance, here are a few eye care tips for your daily skincare routine.

Choose products made for the eye area.

The skin surrounding your eyes is susceptible.  Moisturizers and serums made for the face can sometimes irritate the skin when used too close to the eyes.  Additionally, all skincare and cosmetic products can “travel,” which means that any product applied near your eyes can potentially get into your eyes throughout the day.  Products made specifically for the eye area will be kinder and gentler to the skin, plus they will contain ingredients effective in combating common skin conditions in these areas.

Apply and remove products gently.

Because of the skin’s sensitivity around your eyes, you should refrain from scrubbing, scratching, pulling, or using harsh abrasives in these areas.  Apply products with gentle dabs and soft circular motions to blend the product.  Remove cosmetics with specially formulated makeup remover for the eye area and gentle cotton pads.  Only use exfoliants formulated for the eye area.

Choose high-quality ingredients.

Depending on your skin’s unique conditions, choose high-quality products containing ingredients that will be effective for your skin:

  • Trying to hide fine lines? Moisturizing will help, but ingredients are found to stimulate collagen production to add flexibility and plumpness to your skin:  retinoid (prescription only), retinol, vitamin A derivate, and peptides.
  • Suffering from dark circles (hyperpigmentation)? While many believe dark circles are a sign of not enough sleep, hyperpigmentation is typically caused by harmful exposure to UV rays.  Try products containing arbutin, hydroquinone, kojic acid, vitamin C, soy, vitamin B-3, or azelaic acid.
  • Eyes looking puffy? Puffiness is a sign you’re not getting enough sleep or drinking enough water throughout the day.  Besides reworking your routine to add both of those back into your routine, products containing caffeine, green tea, dipeptide-2, and willow herbs will help to reduce puffiness.  It’s also best to stay away from trendy solutions such as using hemorrhoid creams as prolonged use can make the skin thinner, more fragile, increase redness and swelling, and worsen skin problems including impetigo, rosacea, and acne.
  • Just wanting to keep the skin happy and healthy? In this case, it’s good to choose products with antioxidants that will remove free radicals from the skin and slow the aging process.  Examples include vitamin C, vitamin E, green tea, and vitamin B-3.
