5 Skincare Tips for Delicate Skin Around Your Eyes

We all know that the older we get, the more skin problems we have to deal with. While you may wish this is not the truth, the skin around your eyes is the part of your body that shows the earliest signs of aging. When the skin gets thinner, the more elasticity and support it loses, making it more prone to forming fine lines and wrinkles.

People often say that the eyes are the window to your soul, so no matter how old you are, it’s never too late nor too early to give your eyes the care they deserve. However, when it comes to taking care of those fine lines, wrinkles, and eye bags, there are some key things that you should keep in mind.

Delicate Skin Around Your Eyes

Here are 5 tips for caring for the skin around your eyes.

Never skip moisturizing 

When it comes to dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles, moisturizer is an essential product. That’s why investing in an eye cream product that contains anti-aging components can really help improve the appearance of fine lines, and crow’s feet while brightening the eye area. Make sure to invest in products specifically designed to tackle the problem you're facing. 

A frequently asked question about moisturizing the skin around the eyes is whether we can use normal face moisturizer instead of dedicated eye cream. There’s not a solid answer to this question, but you should keep in mind that face serums and moisturizers may have active ingredients (like retinoids) that might be too strong for the delicate skin around your eyes. So, it’s okay if your eyes don’t feel stinging and irritated from using face cream. But if possible, investing in an eye cream might be the best and safest choice for you.

Because the skin around your eyes is extremely thin and sensitive, the way you apply eye cream is also a crucial part. Rather than rubbing or massaging the eye cream, always apply the cream using the dab and tap technique. This allows the skin to absorb the moisturizing ingredients better, without you having to stretch or damage the under-eye skin area. Plus, make sure to apply the eye cream with your ring finger because it has the least pressure.

Sun protection is a must 

Sun exposure can cause major damage to the skin, especially the under-eye area. That said, sun protection is an essential routine to control the aging process. This can cause the skin to lose pigmentation, making the skin under your eyes darker. That’s why quality sunscreen is a must-have item and should be used on a daily basis. No matter if it’s a sunny or a rainy day, if you’re out and about or sitting at home, you should still apply enough sunscreen.

While applying sunscreen is essential, if you feel like it’s a bit of a hassle, you can opt for a high-quality pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from that UV exposure. However, keep in mind that sunglasses don’t have enough sun protection and can’t fully replace sunscreen.

Check the ingredients 

In order to build a perfect skincare routine, product ingredients sure is a factor that you should always pay attention to. This also applies to building your eye care routine. For example, when you’re searching for a good eye cream, it’s important to know which ingredients to look for based on the skin problems you’re trying to solve

Focusing on choosing the ingredients based on your concern can help shorten your potential-eye-product list. For instance, products containing peptides, vitamin A, and retinol can help with fine lines and wrinkles. If you wish to treat dark circles, look for eye products that have niacinamide (vitamin B-3), vitamin C, and kojic acid. If you have puffy eyes, ingredients such as caffeine, willow herb, or even green tea can help. Plus, you can also rely on jade rollers to depuff your eyes in the morning.

Always be gentle

Since your eye skin is super delicate and sensitive, you have to be extremely careful when touching and treating it. You should remember to only use gentle movements from removing your eye makeup, cleansing the eye area, and applying products around your eyes. The extra pressure from our daily habits can potentially contribute to extra fine lines on the under-eye area, so always be gentle to your eyes. 

Make diet and lifestyle changes 

Having great skin is not only a matter of DNA, in fact, but your daily habits have a big impact on keeping your skin healthy and beautiful. Poor diet and lifestyle habits can contribute to under-eye problems, and if you don’t urge yourself to change, no skincare products can help you keep your skin healthy and beautiful.

If you’ve been sleeping for five, or even three hours a day, lack of sleep is the obvious reason for the appearance of your bags and dark circles. Make sure to get the recommended six to eight hours of sleep to reduce those bags and dark circles. Excess consumption of alcohol is another reason for bags and dark circles while also affecting the quality of your sleep.

As for your diet, look back on how much water you’re drinking, and what kind of nutrients you are having in your meals. Too little water intake can result in dark circles, so remember to drink at least one to two liters of water a day. Also, if you wish to reduce puffiness, reduce salt in your meals since having a high-sodium diet can lead to those puffy eyes.
