No matter how great your anti-aging routine is, if it doesn’t include a comprehensive approach to caring for your eye area, it can backfire and leave you looking older than you are.
Your eye care routine is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine, but what happens if you skip it? Here’s what can happen if you don’t have a consistent eye care routine!
It Can Thin Your Skin
The eye area is some of the thinnest and most delicate skin on your entire body. Starting at the age of 30, you end up losing a lot of collagen and elastin from your face and that can lead to darker circles, sunken eyes, and wrinkles. Keeping eyes looking youthful can trick even your closest friends and family into thinking you’ve turned back the clock in a matter of weeks!
To make sure you’re giving nutrients to the skin around your eyes to avoid it getting thinner, make sure you’re applying a peptide-rich serum at least twice a day. It will also help the application of concealers to plump the skin and mask dark circles. Eye creams can work too but because a serum is formulated with smaller molecules, it absorbs much better than a thick heavy cream and provides better results.
Dark Circles Get Worse
Even with a heavy-duty concealer, dark circles can be difficult to hide and unpleasant to look at. While your genetics can be somewhat responsible for how dark the circles under your eyes are, science has proven that without a proper eye care routine, the dark circles will only become darker and more noticeable.
Eye serums like our Eye Recovery Serum are formulated with ingredients that help brighten even the darkest of undereye circles. When you use products with brightening properties, it will allow your eye area to look vibrant and youthful, without having to use as much makeup as you normally would.
It Causes Inflammation
If you’ve ever woken up with “puffy” eyes in the morning, you know just how unappealing inflammation can be to the eye area. It can make you look tired, unhealthy, and years older than you really are. While there are some old tricks like putting tea bags or cold spoons on the eyes to reduce inflammation, they aren’t long term fixes the way a powerful eye serum can be.
Using ingredients like milk thistle and peppermint that are in our Eye Recovery Serum help support a reduction of puffiness and inflammation to help make the eye area look younger and more refreshed. Not only will you notice a difference within a few uses, but incorporating it in your routine long-term will have lasting benefits to your skin and eye area.
