When it comes to having a youthful complexion, the condition of the skin around your eyes plays a big role. As you gracefully age, you will notice that the area around your eyes will lose its plumpness and elasticity. You may even start to see wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, and even hollowness within this area. While it is almost impossible to fully reverse the ageing process of your skin, it is possible to restore your skin’s youthful glow and minimise the signs of ageing.
Why Does the Skin Around your Eyes Age Faster?
The skin around your eyes is very delicate. External factors such as lack of sleep, diet, and even stress can promote premature signs of ageing. Small habits such as rubbing your eyes can also tug on your skin and cause skin sagging.
How do you Restore Youthful Skin Around your Eyes?
Here are some of the things that you can do in order to get rid of crow’s feet and other visible signs of ageing.
- Invest in good skin care: a good moisturiser, serum and eye cream can be the key to youthful skin. Invest in skincare that is suitable for your skin type and can specifically target your problem areas.
- Stay hydrated and have a balanced diet: this seems very simple, but a lot of us fail to stay hydrated on a regular basis. Drinking water can improve our health, including our skin in many ways. Staying hydrated helps improve blood circulation which is the culprit that leads to puffy eyes. Having a balanced diet is also crucial to your skin’s health. It is also the best way to have a regular intake of natural antioxidants and collagen that comes from the food we eat. Avoid eating food with high salt content and avoid alcoholic beverages as well.
- Protect your skin: always remember to use sunscreen, regardless of the season and weather. You have to remember too that certain ingredients in your skincare can cause your skin to be more sensitive to sun exposure. When you know that you’re going to be under the sun for long periods of time, never assume that your sunscreen is enough to fully protect your skin. Wear clothing that can shield your skin from the sun, or wear hats and sunglasses too.
