Eye Care For Bright Eyes
One of the first things that people notice in one another is the eyes. It is after all, the eyes that offer up the most expression on a person’s face.
The skin surrounding the eyes is not as thick as the skin on the rest of your face is. This skin around the eyes does not have as much oil or sweat glands either. This results in moisture being easily lost.
The loss of moisture will then make dehydration a far greater possibility and lack of moisture is what allows wrinkles to show up.
Skin surrounding the eyes also suffers because it is subjected to movements on a regular basis such as blinking, squinting and smiling. Not to mention the fact that even the small amount of UV rays that you are exposed to on a daily basis can all take elasticity away from the flesh around your eye.
Everyday facial movements like crying, laughing and even the act of placing your hands anywhere on your face makes the flesh around your eyes move. It is therefore not a surprise that your eyes are the first location on your face to show signs of aging.
All of these factors contribute to crow’s feet and lines underneath the eyes to form early, far before the average person is ready to see them appear!
There are ways to minimize the damage that can occur to the sensitive skin underneath your eyes. For example, when taking off your cosmetics, always use a gentle hand. Use a mild make-up remover with a cotton ball.
Work from the outside of your eye to the underneath in the direction of your nose and form a circle. Do not go outside even for short amounts of time without using a product under your eye that will offer you both hydration as well as protection from UV rays.
