Beautiful Skin Tips
If your eyes are the windows of the soul, protecting the skin around them only makes sense. The skin around your eyes is extremely thin and sensitive; just a little stress can lead to puffiness, redness, and wrinkles. Here are a few tips for keeping the skin around your eyes smooth and beautiful:
- Always use sunscreen to prevent early wrinkles and sun damage
- Remove makeup gently trying not to use too much pressure on the thin skin just under the eyes. Avoid products with alcohol because they can deplete necessary skin oils.
- Wash with warm water, not hot, to help keep oils in the skin where they belong
For dry or puffy eyes, try cooled chamomile tea bags. Place on your eyes for a few minutes while you breathe deeply and relax. You can also use cooled peeled cucumber slices. It may feel silly to place food items on your eyelids but many women report that these techniques work well to relieve dryness, redness, and puffiness.
