Eyes – the most expressive part of the body. If the eye glow with happiness and radiate energy, any person immediately becomes much more attractive. But, unfortunately, the skin around the eyes is very thin and sensitive. Due to the fact that under the eyelid skin is almost no muscle and fat, it is more prone to stretching, as well as her earliest image of the first wrinkles and signs of fatigue occur in the case of lack of sleep. That is why the skin around the eyes requires special care and attention. The earlier you start to care for the skin around the eyes, the longer it will stay young and supple.
Cream for the skin around the eyes.
By the choice of the cream for the skin around the eye should be approached responsibly. Conventional creams are not suitable for the person. On the contrary, most of them should not be applied to the delicate skin of the eyelids, such as the cream too “heavy” for sensitive skin around the eyes and can greatly stretch it, leading to the appearance of new wrinkles.
When choosing a cream for skin care around the eyes, I, first of all, pay attention to the composition, packaging and on the feeling that remains after cream. I love the light means, which are well absorbed and moisturize enough. Usually in perfume stores, you can try to put a little cream of the probe on the arm and see it fits you or not.
It is known that the cream in a tube longer retains its useful properties, than the cream in a jar, because less is reacted with oxygen. In composition, I prefer creams that contain copper, vitamin C, retinol and hydroxy acids. These substances are quite slow, but they penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen production, thus the skin becomes more elastic and young. Cream with caffeine and alcohol, on the contrary, give instant results and can quickly give skin elasticity, but due to its temporary dehydration.
Apply the cream to the skin around the eyes is necessary twice a day: morning and evening after make-up removal. The cream is best applied padded ring finger, light tapping motions. In no case do not rub the cream, it can severely stretch the skin. On the lower eyelid cream is applied from the outside corner of the eye to the inner, and the upper – on the contrary, from the inner corner to the outer. Do not apply the cream on the eyelid moving, because it becomes swollen and blush.
