The most sensitive and thin skin of your body is around your eyes. If you have puffiness in the eyes, or dark circles or wrinkles around it, it will add ages to your actual age and make you look older! But thankfully there are many anti aging eye treatments that can help you reduce these signs of aging around the eye. Some of them are basic skin care routines like keeping your skin well moisturized and using products that are designed specifically for the skin around the eyes, which is very sensitive. Also you have to take care that you do not go out without proper sunscreen so that the area is not damaged by the harsh rays of the sun.
For maintaining the sensitive eye skin area, there are some things you have to have with you. They include items like a good moisturizer and sunscreen lotion. Others include a hat and a pair of sunglasses. Then there are items which will help you with your anti aging eye treatments and are present in most households, like cucumber and milk. Lastly, to apply them you will need cotton balls.
On your eye area, apply moisturizer on a daily basis. But first make sure that you choose only those that are built for such a sensitive skin area. Most often, these products come with alpha hydroxy acid which helps to reduce the wrinkles around your eye corners, which are often referred to as crow’s feet.
Sun exposure should be kept to a minimum. But if you have to have to go out in the sunniest part of the day, make sure you are wearing a hat that is wide-brimmed and a pair of large sunglasses that will protect your eyes.
Also, before going out, be sure to apply sunscreen all over your face and also the areas around your eyes. But be sure that sunscreen does not enter your eyes. Facial lotions that also have sunscreen properties are also good choice. Remember though, that applying once is not enough; you have to apply it every two hours or so as long as you are facing sun exposure. If you are swimming or if you perspire heavily, then you should apply it more frequently.
If you smoke, you should quit the habit now to make anti aging eye treatments more effective. When you smoke your skin around the eyes become more wrinkled and if there were wrinkles present beforehand, they will become deeper. Another bad habit of smokers is that when they smoke they squint their eyes. That also makes the eye skin area prone to wrinkles.
As said before, puffy eyes make you look years older than you actually are. So getting rid of this puffiness should be a priority with you. For that, placing a slice of cucumber on the the puffy eyes is a good idea. You can also try milk dampened cotton balls. These anti aging eye home remedies are easy to follow and anyone can do them, including you!
