Noticed a couple of crow’s feet around the eyes? Have your dark circles become worse? Continuing to neglect the problems can cause further damage to your skin. Even if you don’t have much time on your hands to invest in a skincare routine, you can follow these steps to beat the telltale signs of aging and other issues under the eye area.
Oil glands become less active as you age, which is why moisturizing on a regular basis is a must to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The simple act of switching your normal face cream for a richer one will help trap water against the skin, pumping up those deep crevices.
Focus on what you eat
The skin is the body's largest organ, which is why your diet directly affects how you visibly age. Eat plenty of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Ideally they should come from natural sources, including olive oil, ground flaxseed, and fish such as salmon. Fish-oil supplements are another source of these important fats, which help protect the moisture barrier. Take a vitamin D supplement – the body can’t synthesize it naturally. Count green tea and coffee in your daily total, but go easy on the alcohol. Don’t forget to hydrate throughout the day – 6 to 8 glasses of water is a must.
Use an under eye cream
Ageing isn’t the only cause for dark circles, wrinkles or puffiness. It can occur due to squinting and daily eye movement as well. ELI’s Eye Remedy can help to deal with such signs of fatigue.
- It contains apricot oil that is well-known for its antimicrobial properties that heal and soothe skin prone to acne and eczema. Moreover, it doesn’t clog the pores, thus preventing further problems.
- Grapeseed oil is a key ingredient as well, which is packed with antioxidants that facilitate cellular turnover for healthier skin. It contains vitamin E, beta-carotene, and linoleic acid. Vitamin E works wonders in promoting even skin tone and healing dry skin.
- Shea butter helps to soften skin and visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eye area.
Use the cream daily before retiring for the night, and soon you will notice the difference. The skin around the eyes becomes firmer, while dark circles gradually fade. Give it a try and see!
