Welcome, dear reader, to this quirky and informative blog on how to achieve younger-looking eyes without resorting to magic spells or sacrificing your firstborn. We all know that the windows to the soul can sometimes reflect a little wear and tear, thanks to the unrelenting force of time. But fear not, for with a little TLC and some handy tips, you can turn back the clock and have peepers that would make even the most skeptical of time travelers gasp in awe. So, put on your best pair of reading glasses, and let’s dive into the fascinating world of eye rejuvenation! They say that your eyes should be the window to your soul…not your date of birth. Wrinkles, puffiness, and sagging, don’t stand a chance with these top tips for younger looking eyes.
What Causes Them?
Due to the skin around your eyes being very thin, stagnant blood can gather under them because of lack of sleep, excessive alcohol, or general aging and this can result in dark circles.
Use Massage Techniques
Dark circles can look worse in the mornings. So using a light hydrating eye cream, gently massage around your eyes, without dragging the skin, to get the circulation flowing.
Disguise Them Flawlessly
If your dark circles are blue or purple, camouflage with a yellow-toned concealer. If they look brown, use a peach-colored one.
Use An Extra Pillow In Bed
Elevating your head slightly will stop fluid from gathering around your eyes.
Don’t Use Too Much Eye Cream
Slathering on too much can actually make eyes puffier, instead use a gel formula, which is light and will sink in easier.
Use A Cool Compress
Soak a cotton wool pad in iced water or use a few slices of cucumber to reduce the swelling. But always follow with a hydrating cream, using water alone may leave your skin dehydrated and lacking in radiance.
Three Ways To Put Twinkle In Your Eyes
Make Your Eye Color Stand Out
Detract from lines and wrinkles by accentuating the color of your eyes instead. Apply colored eyeliner close to the lash line. Make blue eyes stand out with a copper shade. Brown eyes look stunning with teal or purple, and for green eyes, try violet.
Do you use black volumizing mascara? Dense, black lashes can actually be more aging and cast a shadow under your eyes. Swap for a brown, lengthening mascara instead.
Mattify Your Eye Make-up
Shimmery eye shadows can make puffy eyes look worse, so always go for a matte formula in a pale color to detract from your flaws.
First things first, moisturize regularly. Your eyes deserve some hydration too, you know. Grab yourself a good eye cream and gently tap it around the eye area. Don’t be too rough though, we don’t want to inadvertently create more wrinkles in the process. Just imagine you’re playing a delicate tune on a tiny piano, but with your fingers moisturizing instead. Ah, the symphony of youth! Now, let’s talk about the cardinal sin of eye care: rubbing your eyes. Sure, it feels good at the moment, but trust me, it’s a one-way ticket to puffiness and dark circles. Instead, try lightly patting your eyes or even just blinking vigorously. It may not be as satisfying as a good old rub, but at least it won’t leave you looking like you just went a few rounds with Mike Tyson. When it’s time to remove your glamorous eye makeup, be gentle, my dear. Use a gentle makeup remover that won’t irritate your delicate eye area. The last thing you want is red, watery eyes that scream “I just had a fight with a mascara wand!” So be kind to those precious peepers and treat them with the tenderness they deserve. Now, let’s talk about the sun. Ah, that big ball of fire in the sky that also happens to emit harmful UV rays. Protect your eyes from those rays by wearing sunglasses. Not only will you look effortlessly cool, but you’ll also be preventing those pesky crow’s feet from making an unwelcome appearance. Talk about a win-win!
Tip: Always apply your eye cream very gently and work from the outside of your eye towards the inner corner. Don’t drag or pull the delicate skin, it will just create more damage.
