Our eyes often show the fast-paced nature of our lifestyle. During the day, they are constantly active — blinking, smiling, frowning, reading, peering at our phone screens, and the list goes on. Just as we need to take good care of our eyesight, we feel the skin around the eye area also deserves some extra TLC.
Fine lines and wrinkles
Fine lines often indicate the beginning of the skin’s aging process and many notice the first ones forming under the eyes. Wrinkles form when fine lines begin to deepen as we age. Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging and a huge part of our expressions. Therefore, the objective is not to eradicate them but to slow their progress and minimise their appearance. The important thing is to add a dedicated eye product to your skincare routine early on, like BIOEFFECT EGF Eye Serum. Another helpful tip to minimise wrinkles is to start wearing prescription glasses and sunglasses as soon as you need them, to avoid constant squinting.
The skin around the eyes is 10 times thinner than that on the rest of the face and has much fewer sebaceous glands then the skin elsewhere on our face. A good eye cream is needed to keep this skin moisturised. Valuable hydrating ingredients to look for in an eye cream are hyaluronic acid, glycerin, squalene, and aloe vera.
Sagging of the skin is caused by a loss of elasticity. While this is a normal part of skin aging, it can be exasperated by constantly rubbing and tugging the eye area. Try to remove your eye makeup as gently as you possibly can. Saturate a cotton pad with BIOEFFECT Micellar Cleansing Water and hold the pad to the eyes for 30 seconds, as this allows the makeup to loosen and dissolve before you gently rub it away.
Under-eye puffiness is often genetic, but overconsumption of salt and lack of sleep can also cause temporary puffiness. This is often particularly noticeable in the eye area. On those mornings when eye puffiness flares up, you can apply a cold compress to the area to minimise the swelling. A stimulating massage, either with your fingers or a roller, can do wonders as well. If you have enough forethought the night before, you might also try sleeping with two pillows underneath your head to encourage overnight drainage.
