How to Make Your Eyes Look Younger
They say that eyes are the window to the soul. But what do your eyes say about you? Are you getting enough beauty sleep? Are you using the right products and maintaining a balanced diet? These are all factors that can greatly contribute to how your eyes will appear. If you are constantly dealing with bags under your eyes or the wrinkles around them make you look much older than you really are, perhaps it is time to change some of your habits. These things can be managed quite easily, with only a few of these simple tricks:
It is in the inside what counts, right? Well, before you start looking for alternative procedures to fix your baggy eyes, you should first consider your diet. What you eat can have a great effect on your overall appearance. What you should start implementing into your diet are foods that are rich with antioxidants which will help you with inflammations and puffiness and actually help you with clear signs of aging and pollutants. Other than that, consider foods that contain high levels of vitamin C like leafy greens, strawberries and citrus fruits, as they are known to prevent wrinkles and dry skin but also some more severe conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration.
Another great way to fend off wrinkles and clear signs of aging is by relying on homemade masks. Keep in mind that the skin around the eyes is very thin and that is why fine lines and crow’s feet will first appear. Because of this, make use of your fresh foods to create natural remedies that will help you depuff your eyes, remove wrinkles and deep lines and also help soothe those dark circles and sagginess around them. Foods like sweet potatoes, cucumbers, pineapples, eggs and herbal teas are known to be quite effective against these annoying pests.
Makeup and Other Products
When it comes to various beauty products that could help us in our battle for younger looking eyes, it is important to consider what kind of compounds are found in our cosmetics. When choosing your products, whether they are makeup or anti-aging creams, make sure they are based retinol, hydroxyl acids, niacinamide, tea extracts and coenzyme Q10. Vitamin C based creams are known to make the skin firmer, stimulate collagen synthesis and also prove antioxidant protection. It is also important to protect your skin from sun damage by applying sunscreen regularly, as too much sun exposure is known to cause older looking skin, brown spots, wrinkles and deep lines.
In the end, do not forget to get appropriate amounts of sleep. Your beauty sleep will help you energize your body and prevent dark circles, bags and sagginess under your eyes.
As we get older, our skin will lose its elasticity, start producing wrinkles and show clear signs of aging. Of course, there is nothing you can do to stop aging, but these few simple tips can at least help you age gracefully. Implementing a few of these changes into your daily routine can greatly contribute to younger looking skin and eyes as well.
