Stressed out? Losing sleep? The delicate skin around your eyes is the first to show it. Here’s how to hold back the damage.
How Daily Life Takes Its Toll
The skin under your yes is thin and contains few oil glands, making it incredibly vulnerable to crow’s feet, wrinkles and expression lines (a result of all the blinking, squinting, and smiling you do). Hormonal changes can also cause eyes to appear slightly sunken.
STRESS AND FATIGUE
Skipping those precious eight hours of sleep can lead to dark circles, puffiness, and dullness¬ further emphasizing fine lines around the eyes. Plus, constant anxiety upsets the body’s chemical balance.
The delicate eye area is extremely reactive. Allergies, seasonal colds, dry heat, and even how much salt you ate the night before can make them red, puffy, teary, and itchy.
Don’t forget to protect from the sun’s rays (UV damage contributes to fine lines). Protect the sensitive eye area with SPF-enhanced cream that won’t cause irritation if it seeps into open eyes.
Four reasons why your regular moisturizer isn’t enough.
