How Eye Cream Reduces Lines and Wrinkles
Your skin is the largest organ in your body shedding more than 50,000 dead skin cells every minute. Thankfully, it always regenerates fresh new skin cells soon after presenting an opportunity to improve the appearance of our skin by practicing the proper techniques in skin care.
While proper skin care is important for all over our body the skin around our eyes and on our face require more care and the proper ingredients to maintain flexibility and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is the reason nearly 2 million Botox procedures take place each year in the US.
This area is not only much thinner than skin in other areas of the face and body but there are no oil glands under the eyes to keep it moist. This coupled with the constant movement of the eye area makes it especially prone to aging. And this is particularly problematic for those with dry or sensitive skin. Although, over time, any skin type will experience a decrease in collagen production and the development of fine lines in this area.
Eye Cream is Not Just for Aging Skin
This is why eye cream is so important to use at any age and especially for those who have dry and sensitive skin. What is in your eye cream is also very important. Peptides in your diet and your skin cream send a signal to your brain to create more collagen. Diet is extremely important to keeping all your organs young and healthy and the skin is no exception.
Anti-oxidant enriched vitamins are crucial to maintaining a healthy glow to your skin. Vitamin C and E are anti-oxidant fighting vitamins that fight free radicals and repair your skin. Your daily diet should also contain foods rich in these vitamins. The foods most often associated with these vitamins are berries, citrus fruits, spinach, peaches, watermelon, broccoli and carrots to name a few.
Apply Eye Cream Morning and Night
Using your eye cream day and night is the best guard against wrinkles and will help repair the damage already done. The proper use of facial products is important for the best results. First cleanse with a cleanser that is formulated for your skin type. If you exfoliate you do not need to cleanse your face as it will remove the dirt and debris from the day alone and you do not want to dry out your skin excessively.
Then apply a toner or serum to your skin if it is part of your daily routine. The products with the most amount of water should always be used first as they seal in the moisture and create a smoother surface to apply lotions.
Then use your eye cream. Use this prior to your moisturizer as you want the thickest formula to be the final formula. Dab your eye cream on from inside to outside and around the top just under your eyebrow. This allows the cream to work below and onto the eyelid during the day so it does not enter the eye itself. Repeat the same process in the evening and you will soon see improvement in the fine lines and wrinkles.
