Did you know that the eyes are one of the first places that show the signs of aging? The skin that is around the eyes is fifty per cent thinner than the skin around the rest of the face. The skin around the eye area can be made fuller with injectables and fat transfer treatments in Melbourne. The skin around the eye area is quite delicate, and it needs to be looked after correctly.
Ageing isn’t just about getting wrinkles. You can develop puffy eyes, under-eye bags and dark circles which all work together to make your face look older. You may be considering eyelid surgery, however if you’re looking for a more natural solution in the meantime then lucky for you, there are a few easy and affordable things that you can do to make your eyes appear younger and fuller.
Apply an eye cream the right way
It doesn’t matter so much what type of eye cream you are using as it does applying it the right way. You can use the best eye cream out there, but if you are not applying it correctly, then it is not going to be good. It is suggested that you use a pea-sized amount of cream for both of your eyes. You want to put the product on starting with the inner corner of the eye and working out to the crows feet area. If you still have product left, you can apply this to your brow bone. You want to put it right where the lower edge of your sunglasses would sit, and don’t apply it any higher than that.
Apply your cream in the correct spot
Many of us are actually applying our face creams too high. Skin products go upwards on the face, so if you are working the cream up high near the eye area too much then it will make the delicate skin become puffy and baggy.
Consider an eye mask
Eye masks are a great thing when you need to minimise bags under the eyes fast. The gel eye masks work well to cool and soothe the eye area within a matter of minutes.
Wear sunscreen and sunglasses
Like the rest of our body, we need to be protecting our eye area from the sun. Wearing a daily sunscreen will help avoid wrinkles from occurring and the sunglasses will stop your eyes from squinting. Squinting has been known to be a big factor of lines developing around the eye area.
Use mascara to open the eyes
Wide eyes create a youthful look. Most of the time as we start to age, our eyes appear to get smaller, darker and puffier. If you have big full eyelashes, using a volume enhancing mascara will help to open the eyes. If you don’t like the idea of false lashes, then consider using a curler.
Rid salt from your diet
The bags under your eyes can be made more visible when you have a high sodium intake. Remove salt from your diet to see the difference.
Use green tea
You can soothe your eye area with green tea cubes. Create a pot of green tea and pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight. When you wake up, pop out an ice cube and cover it in a cloth or some paper towel, hold it on the eye area for a few minutes until your eyes feel fresh and awake. This is an excellent option to add to your morning routine to help you feel more refreshed every day.
