The eye area is one of the most delicate areas on the body. It is also one of the most abused areas on the body! Between eye makeup, external aggressors, and physical damage done by rubbing and tugging, the eye area puts up with a lot. Coupled with the frailness of the skin in the eye area, these things cause it to be one of the first features of the face to show visible signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
But, there’s still hope! If you learn how to care for your eye area, you’ll find that this damage can be both prevented and treated. This means that even if you already have crow’s feet, you can smooth them! Dark circles can be lightened and brightened! Smooth, youthful skin can be maintained! You just need to learn how.
Learning to be soft and gentle on the eye area is the first step toward keeping the skin healthy and beautiful. While cleansing, moisturizing, applying makeup, and removing makeup, always use light pressure and try to avoid tugging, pulling, and rubbing the skin.
When cleansing before or after makeup, don’t “press and pull” to clean the eye area. Instead, gently work your cleanser into the area using your fingertips in a soft circular motion. Eye cream should be applied with your ring fingers, as these are the weakest fingers on the hand. Makeup should be applied using clean, soft brushes and dabbing motions to avoid pulling the skin.
In short, just be gentle! The eye area suffers much of its damage simply because of harsh physical actions. And for goodness’ sakes, don’t rub your eyes when you’re tired!
Even if a woman is dedicated to washing her face every morning and evening, the eye area is often left covered in makeup residue. This is simply because it’s difficult to get makeup off of every surface and out of every crevice of the eye!
To properly purify the eye area, a fantastic cleanser is a must. Most dedicated eye makeup removers are overly harsh. Instead, try removing makeup with apricot kernel oil, which will dissolve the makeup while also conditioning the skin, eyebrows, and eyelashes.
After removing makeup with oil, use your normal cleanser to remove some of the oil residue and wash the rest of your face. Some of the oil will remain, but it will continue to benefit the skin while you sleep.
Lastly, consider going without eye makeup for a day or two per week. You’ll have the chance to let your natural beauty shine through, while also giving your eyes a break from the harsh chemicals and textures of makeup.
Aside from basic gentleness and cleanliness, the eye area is in great need of moisture and treatment. Be weary of over-the-top eye area skin care products which may contain ingredients that could further damage your eye area skin. Instead, opt for a formula that’s free of parabens, superficial brighteners, and other potentially harmful ingredients.
Atopalm’s Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum is truly one of the best eye serums on the market. Gentle yet potent, it deeply moisturizes with Atopalm’s patented MLE Technology while peptides, genuine brighteners, and skin care antioxidants replenish, protect, and rejuvenate the skin.
