The skin around the eyes is the thinnest and most delicate, which means it needs special care. But often we forget to pay due attention to this area. And as a result - premature appearance of wrinkles. Well, who will like it?
Of course, with age, mimic wrinkles cannot be avoided, especially since one of the reasons for their appearance is a smile. In no case are we suggesting that you turn into Victoria Beckham and stop smiling in pursuit of beauty! But still, there are very common skin care mistakes around the eyes that will help wrinkles “show up” to you ahead of time.
WASHING WITH TOO COLD OR TOO HOT WATER
This is the number one mistake that most even the most "literate" girls make. The temperature of the water for daily washing should be at room temperature, 23-24 degrees, but not icy or hot. Sometimes you can rub a cosmetic ice cube under your eyes, but the “freezing” method is not suitable for everyday care - the skin suffers from this. The same goes for hot water - it damages and dries, causing wrinkles.
DO NOT USE SPECIAL EYE MAKE-UP REMOVER
Most gels and foams intended exclusively for washing the face say: "Avoid the area around the eyes." This information is really helpful and not meant to be ignored! The skin of the entire face and the delicate skin around the eyes need different care, so remove the remains of cosmetics on the eyelids either with a special foam or two-phase oil-based products.
APPLY A REGULAR FACE CREAM UNDER YOUR EYES
Same story as make-up remover - your beautiful eyes should have their own make-up. They deserve it! Face cream, no matter how high-quality and expensive it is, must be applied avoiding the notorious “eye area”.
FORGET ABOUT MOISTURIZING
One of the causes of wrinkles is dryness. Well-moisturized skin stays smooth longer, and for the skin around the eyes, this is most important - in this area there are practically no muscles and subcutaneous fat, which is why it is prone to dryness. Care should take place twice a day - in the morning, before applying makeup, and in the evening - after washing.
APPLY THE CREAM WITH THE WRONG MOVEMENTS
Remember that the cream around the eyes should be applied with light, in no case stretching movements, “along the bone” - you can easily feel it with your fingertips. Every evening, do micro-massage with small taps - from the inner corner to the outer one along the upper zone around the eye, from the outer to the inner one - along the lower one. These simple steps will increase blood circulation and make the skin firmer.
DO NOT WEAR SUNGLASSES
Step out of the house without sunglasses and squint all day because of the bright rays? Congratulations! When you close your eyes, your skin is constantly in a "crumpled" state - hence all the problems with wrinkles. Always carry sunglasses with you, and it is advisable that their glasses have a UV filter.
DO NOT WEAR DIOPTER GLASSES
If your eyesight has fallen, it is very important to choose glasses or contact lenses in which you will not involuntarily squint to see something. Often mimic wrinkles appear precisely because of incorrectly selected diopters, so visit an optometrist once a year and correct them if necessary.
GO TO SLEEP IN COSMETICS
Well, there are no comments at all. We thought for a long time whether to add this obvious item to our list of mistakes: after all, every woman has heard that you should never sleep in cosmetics. And yet we decided to remind you once again - crumbling shadows, smeared mascara and the remnants of eyeliner in which you spent the night have a detrimental effect on the skin around the eyes. This is the surest way to start dreaming about blepharoplasty by the age of 35. Therefore, always wash your face, even if you can hardly stand on your feet from fatigue or champagne!
