Caring for your eyes is extremely important – no matter how old you are, what type of skin you have, what your eye shape is, and what kind of lifestyle you live. Keeping your eyes clean, free of debris, and maintaining the skin surrounding your eye is always a good idea. Today, Lionesse provides you with some helpful tips on how you can properly care for your eyes as best as possible, and as safely as possible.
Use Caution When Applying Eye Makeup
When you’re applying eyeliner, mascara, and eyeshadow, you will always want to make sure you are applying the products in a well-lit area, slowly, and precisely to avoid eye injury. Never apply eye makeup in a moving vehicle, as this can cause serious injury to the eye if you happen to hit a bump and then hit your eye with your applicator. Avoid this from happening by using extreme caution. Another tip is to choose good quality cosmetic products which won’t cause eye infection or irritation.
Remove Eye Makeup Nightly
Always ensure you are removing your eye makeup nightly before bed with a makeup remover made for use around the eyes, and ensure you don’t get any of the product into your eyes as much as you can help it. If you do, rinse the eye thoroughly. Leaving makeup on your eyes overnight gives way to infection, bacteria and irritation, to form. Also – your eyes may age quicker by leaving makeup products in place for too long.
Keep Eyes Free of Debris
When going about your daily life, and completing tasks such as cleaning the house or even gardening, using protective eyewear will ensure your eyes stay free of debris and chemicals which you may be using. Wearing safety goggles or sunglasses will ensure your eyes are protected against chemical burns from household cleaning items such as bleach, and dirt from gardening outside. If you happen to get something into your eye, depending upon what it is, flush the affected eye with water for 10-15 minutes and place a phone call into your doctor if necessary. If its chemical related, you will need to be seen in an emergency room as soon as possible to stop any potential damage, receive an eye flush, and get an assessment on any damage already done to the eye. Remember, the best course of action in this case is to always wear eye protection to ward off injury.
Apply Eye Creams
To care for the skin surrounding the eyes, be sure to apply an eye cream to the orbital bone area surrounding the eye once in the morning, and once at night. This product should be applied after your moisturizer cream, and allowed to rest on the skin for about 15-20 seconds before applying any sort of cosmetic products over the cream. This will give the product time to absorb into the skin. This will help to ward off wrinkles, fine lines, and keep the skin surrounding the eye looking youthful and potentially add to the sparkle and brightness of your eyes.
