The skin which surrounds the eye is really sensitive because it is thin and it can be submitted to lots of environmental problems. The aging process is in many cases signaled by symptoms like puffiness, panda eyes, circles, wrinkles and sagging skin. Because of the delicacy of the area, the skin is really fragile. As you get old, you will see that the eyes will be the ones who start to have mature skin around them. This type of skin has blue veins and it is thinner. Therefore the area may look darker than the rest of the body. Poor sleeping habits can also cause the darkening of the skin and as you mature, it will be more difficult to conceal these problems.
For the sensitive skin around the eyes, the normal creams do not have the required effect. They might be too heavy and the skin will be overloaded. Unfortunately this might mean a bad effect and can cause the appearance of wrinkles. The ingredients used in anti-aging eye creams are vitamin E, Retinol, various acids, caffeine and vitamin C. They work together to treat different problems of the skin.
How to use it
It is important to know the right way to use the eye cream. You have to treat the area with care. The first thing to do is to try and improve your lifestyle. Everyone can find some things which can be changed and this will help diminish the risk of damaging the skin.
Applying the cream
Do not use too much cream because the area can get overloaded fast. A dab of a pea size is more than enough for both eyes. Use your fingertips to spread the cream into tiny dots. The area surrounded the eyes should be completely covered up. Avoid putting the cream near the orbits because it can easily irritate the eyeball. It is not recommended to rub the skin. You will pat it gently until the cream is completely absorbed.
You will need to establish a routine of taking care of your skin. Many women start good and end up badly because they are not consistent. After 30 years or even sooner, taking care of the eye area should be a daily habit. Therefore, try and persist in applying the skin every day even if you are not in the mood. Do not apply more than necessary if you skipped a day. Pick up where you have left and do better next time.
