Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard…
We hate to be the barriers of bad news, but it’s common to notice signs of aging in the eye area of our face. Many experts stress that our eyes are one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Because the skin around our eyes is much more delicate than the other areas, it’s more susceptible to developing puffiness and other common eye issues. Before you panic, we’ve discovered a few easy tips to help minimize eye puffiness and tighten skin. By incorporating these things you should be able to notice some positive changes in the eye area of your skin.
Avoid Too Much Salt and Alcohol
Again, we hate to be the ones to break this to you but experts stress that one of the causes of eye puffiness is due to some of our lifestyle habits. Consuming too much salt and alcohol have been found to cause a lot of eye puffiness to occur in people. If you notice that you’ve been struggling with eye puffiness, try cutting back on salt and alcohol intake to allow your body to heal and reduce some of the puffiness from the inside out.
Be Gentle With Your Eyes
It’s common to feel frustration when dealing with eye puffiness. And when we become frustrated, it’s easy to be a bit rushed and harsher on the areas of the skin we’re feeling irritated with. It’s important, though, that you’re maintaining your gentle approach especially when taking care of the skin around your eyes. Being too harsh and using too much pressure can make matters worse. Be consistent with a gentle touch and care when dealing with the skin around your eyes. Avoid any pulling and scratching to keep the skin well taken care of.
It’s easy to think that drinking water doesn’t have an impact on your eye puffiness, but it actually can have a huge impact. When our bodies are well hydrated, we’re able to flush out toxins much easier helping to element any factors internally that could be causing the eye puffiness to occur. In addition, when our bodies are well hydrated our skin is much healthier. The truth of the matter is our skin needs hydration to order to maintain its health and appearance. Drinking water can help your skin to maintain, and achieve much more tightness-so drink up!
Apply an Eye Cream
So many people feel that eye creams are only to be used when you notice more significant signs of aging. But the truth is, experts suggest that using an eye cream is best when used earlier! Many state the earlier the better, in fact. Incorporating an eye cream into your skin care routine to be used on a daily basis can be a great way to help tighten the skin around your eyes. Eye creams are formulated to work with the skin around your eyes and help to create more tightness in that area to prevent further signs of aging from occurring, and help to reduce signs that may be there already.
