In the past, skin care did not separate the delicate needs of the skin around the eyes from the rest of the face. Facial skin products were a one-size-fits-all solution for the entire facial area.
Delicate Eye Skin Needs Special Treatment
The delicate skin around the eyes needs special and careful treatment to keep it healthy and looking good. The most common problems that women have with the skin around their eyes are bags, dark circles and, of course, wrinkles and crows feet. I say embrace those crows feet. They mean you smile a lot (or that you need glasses), but those wrinkles, circles and bags have got to go.
The eye skin care issue deserves a little discussion and a bit of information. Knowing how to handle the skin around the eyes is key to ensuring that it stays looking its best. Avoiding wrinkles usually only takes a few simple steps in your skincare routine.
Good Eye Skin Makes Eye Makeup Look Better
Eye make up goes on much easier and looks smoother if it has a base of good skin. The best way to get good eye skin is to make sure that your beauty routine includes thorough cleansing and removal of your entire eye make up every night before bed. Eye makeup was not meant to be worn 24/7. Your skin needs to breathe and to regenerate.
Good eye skin care is dependent on a great moisturizer. Whether you select a product that is made for firming, brightening, or just plain moisturizing, make sure to use it as often as possible; day and night. The newer gel-based eye skin care formulas are great for use under your makeup. At night, before bed, slather on some richer, thicker eye treatment formula. Give the formula time to absorb before applying makeup or using other skin care products.
Men And Eye Skin Care
These days, even some men regularly use eye skin care. Men are as prone to wrinkles as much as women are and maybe even more so since they may spend more time outside in the elements without using the appropriate sunscreen and moisturizers. I find that men feel very strongly one way or another about eye skin care, or any skin care for that matter; they are either all for it or avoid it completely. But with more and more manufacturers introducing skin care lines for men, men are obviously more willing to give it a try.
With the selection of products available on the skin care market today, there is no excuse not to include good eye skin care in your general beauty routine. There is an eye skincare product for everyone; whether your routine is minimal or intense, there is a product for you. Whether you prefer a quick, dab and go, formula, or a deeper penetrating treatment, there’s a product out there made just for you. Spend the time now, while you’re young, to treat your eye skin right and it will thank you later.
