It is everyone’s desire to look and feel young. As you age, you will notice that the skin around your eyes displays various signs of ageing as the time goes by. But, this should not worry you since there are plenty of ways that you can make your eyes look bright and youthful. With the right products and application techniques, you can make your eyes have a youthful glow and enhance your appearance. Here are tips on how I make my eyes look younger that you can also apply.
Wear a sunscreen
It is important to wear an SPF 30 or 34 sunscreen when the sun is too hot or during summer before going out, especially if you have the sensitive skin type. This will reduce the harsh effect of the sun’s UV rays on your eyes. In case you do not have a sunscreen, wear wide, UV-protective sunglasses among other protective garments such as hats. These will add another layer of defense, leaving your eyes looking bright.
Take the right diet
Ensure that you incorporate the right nutrients into your diet. It should be high in iron to prevent the formation of under-eye bags and dark circles your eyes. Eat iron-rich foods like spinach along with vegetables such as Brussels sprouts. These would also prevent the development of cataracts and decrease age-related macular degeneration. Reduce the amount of salt intake in your diet to prevent water retention in the eyes which causes puffiness.
Moisturizing is a great way to having youthful-looking eyes. If you have a problem with puffy eyes, choose a gel eye serum. But, when it comes to beauty products, always make sure they contain vitamin E and protective SPF, especially if you will be applying them during the day. Above all, apply these products correctly, in the right amount, way, and place.
Antioxidants like idebenone, vitamin C, green tea extracts help in protecting your eyes mostly during the day when the sun is too hot. They also prevent skin-cell damage. Choose eye serums that have the right ingredients that can easily penetrate into the skin and offer a protective layer to the area around your eyes.
Use the right primers
A primer is similar to a moisturizer. Select the right primers containing ingredients like Argirelinean and use the right technique to apply them. Apply a primer by dabbing it under your eyes to smooth out any fine lines. You can also use your ring finger to gently dab a primer around the area under your eyes and any wrinkles to the sides of your eyes. This will help to fill in any lines and make your skin look smoother.
Brighten your eyes
With the aging process your skin becomes more creased, especially when it comes to the area around your eyes. Dark circles also form, making your eyes look dull. To have brighter looking eyes, choose a light creamy concealer with the right undertone if you happen to have dark circles. This will neutralize the dark hue and correct the discoloration illuminating your eyes making them look brighter.
For most of the people who love wearing eye makeup, always wash out the make up before sleeping even if it’s a waterproof product. Use the right way to wash it out by gently pressing down a cotton pad or soft cloth. For more effective results, try eyelid correction from the Dorow Clinic.
