Looking after the skin under your eyes is important as a preventative measure for signs of ageing. To ensure dreaded fine lines and wrinkles do not make an unwelcome appearance, developing a tailored eye care routine will give you peace of mind that you are doing everything in your control to maintain beautiful skin.
Refining your skincare routine is important, even at a young age. Learning about what products work well with your skin type will ensure a quality regime for the coming months and years. Relying too heavily on quick fix miracle products during your 30’s and 40’s will not improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will show signs of ageing from years of neglect; long hours spent in the sun, drinking, smoking, not maintaining a balanced diet, lack of sleep and poor skincare upkeep. It’s important to see the solution to signs of ageing as a long term process of prevention as opposed to an overnight treatment. Your under eye area is especially delicate, which means skipping out on an eye cream can accelerate the ageing process. Using the below tips, make the next thing on your holiday to-do list to ensure your eye care regime is effective for you.
Cleaning and Cleansing
Removing all makeup from the eye area as a separate step to cleansing is integral for an overall more nourished and refreshed look. Rid your eyes of shadow, liner and especially mascara, including that pesky dark circle that forms on the under eye area. Cleaning before cleansing is the key. Using the RACINNE Ultimate Youth Power Eye Cream, take a small amount and pat lightly using your ring finger along the eye socket. This product helps to improve skin texture, brighten and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots.
Understanding your skin type makes the idea of skincare simpler, especially when trying new products. Checking out previous blog posts on dry and oily skin will assist your skincare purchase decisions.
Researching ingredients that suit your skin type and potential problem areas is an essential step when working out what eye care will work best for you. Lemongrass extract for example contains antioxidants and renewal properties which then reduce puffiness and dark circles. Finding what products these essential ingredients are featured in is easy through some quick research online. The RACINNE Ultimate Hydra Perfection Contour Brightening Eye Care contains lemon grass as well as grape callus extract which work to reduce the effects of free-radical damage. What is great about these specific ingredients in regards to eye care is how they help stimulate the synthesis of healthy collagen and elastin.
Simply introducing specific foods to your diet will help to amplify the appearance of your skin. Proteins in certain dairy products such as yogurt can assist in firming your skin and smoothing complexion. Adding avocado to sandwiches, wraps and salads is also an easy way to add essential fatty acids and antioxidants. Of course, keeping hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating water rich foods such as watermelon and cucumber will ensure a youthful complexion is maintained all year round. Though it may seem obvious, resting your eyes and having to correct amount of sleep each night will reduce under eye bags. Taking a break from electronic devices such as phones, computers and tablets will help you feel more refreshed in the morning and promote a better quality night’s sleep.
