An anti-ageing eye routine that gets an A+
Do you know that you should be taking care of the skin around your eyes, but have no clue what to do, or even where to start? Or do you think using your cleanser and face moisturiser is enough?
The skin around your eyes is much more delicate than the rest of your face, so it requires a little extra attention. So if you want younger-looking eyes (and who doesn’t?), keep reading!
SMOOTH ON SOME SPF
Every morning, protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays by applying an eye cream. This will help to prevent the formation of more fine lines and wrinkles, and also keep dark spots and pigmentation at bay.
APPLY IT THE RIGHT WAY
Now, don’t just go slapping on your eye cream! The power of the product is in the application. To get the most out of your eye cream, pop a pea-sized dab of product on your ring finger, and pat it about two centimetres beneath your eye and along the brow bone. Just remember the skin around your eyes is very delicate, so avoid tugging as this can stretch it. No, thanks.
UP YOUR ANTIOXIDANTS
Eyes looking a little puffy? Antioxidants will help in a BIG way, so soak a washcloth in cool green tea and lay it over your eyes. Or put two wet tea bags in the fridge until they’re cold and then place them over your eyes. Green tea is bursting with antioxidants, which work wonders for soothing puffy peepers.
WASH THE DAY AWAY
It doesn’t matter how exhausted you are, there’s no excuse for going to bed with eye makeup still on! Leaving your eye makeup on overnight can lead to infections and dehydrate the skin around the eyes, so take a few minutes to wipe the grime away with an eye makeup remover. All it takes is a couple of swipes with a cotton pad – you can do it!
HIT THE H2O BEFORE BED
Once you’ve applied your eye cream, down a glass of water before snuggling up in bed. This will not only help to keep your body hydrated overnight, but it’ll also quench the thirst of the skin around your eyes, and plump out lines and wrinkles come morning.
