Eye Cream + Tips for Healthy Skin Around Your Eyes

Eye Cream + Tips for Healthy Skin Around Your Eyes

The area around your eyes is one of the most fragile skin areas of our body.  You need to take care of this skin if you want to look young and vibrant.  Many experts agree that at the age of 25, you need to start taking care of the eye area seriously.  Here are some tips.

DRINK WATER

Drinking at least 8 glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins. Everyone will not agree that water consumption will improve skin, but it certainly can't hurt. Many people often report that by increasing their water intake, their skin has a more radiant glow.

Some people add ingredients to their water such as lemon juice, chlorophyll, ginger, cinnamon, basel or mint.  Drinking water will keep your body hydrated, which we believe has a poisitive impact on your skin.

STOP RUBBING YOUR EYES AND SQUINTING

Rubbing of the eyes will not directly cause wrinkles; however, when you rub your eyes you can cause the skin to be irritated, so it may look red or swollen. If you persistently rub your eyes, your skin there will thicken sort of like a callous. Squinting can exacerbate wrinkles and also lead to wrinkling. 

So where can wrinkles come from?  Basically, what happens is due to your skin's natural defensive reaction, the cellular layers underneath the skin thicken, making it more difficult for collagen and elastin to renew and restore dead or damaged skin cells. This eventually leads to “older”, less elastic skin.

USE A SAFE, EFFECTIVE EYE CREAM

There are many eye creams to choose from. One of the first things you should do is research whether the ingredients used in the eye cream are safe. If you need help in this area, you can always consult websites such as EWG's Skin Deep Database. Enter the different ingredients to reivew their scores.  

Once you narrow down the brands using safe ingredients, we recommend you look for hydrating ingredients vs stronger acids.  Again, the skin around the eye area is delicate so be delicate with your products.  At Vitalibis, we use a variety of safe and effective ingredients.  Our high-performing Re-Vitalizing Eye Cream is full of plant oils, extracts, amino acids and proteins. A few of these essential plant-based ingredients include: Full Spectrum Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp Oil with naturally occurring Cannabidiol (CBD), Astaxanthin, Linseed Seed Extract, Marula Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Murumuru Seed Butter, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Kakadu Plum Fruit Extract, Coconut Oil and several others.

APPLY EYE CREAM CORRECTLY

The last tip is to apply the eye cream correctly to the skin around your eyes. Typically, apply a pea-size amount on your ring finger. Eye creams are super concentrated, so a pea-size amount is all you need.  Why the ring finger you ask?  Well it's your weakest finger. Gently pat small dots from the inner corner underneath your eye to your brow bone.  We don't recommend putting eye cream too close to your eyes or on the top of your eyelids. 

We hope this information has been helpful.  Be well.
