1. Protect Your Eyes with Antioxidants

One of the ways to keep your eyes looking young is to keep them away from the oxidizing affects of everyday life. Sun, wind, indoor heating and air conditioning, and dry air, among other environmental conditions, can make skin and eyes look tired. Protect eyes by using antioxidants such as coffeeberry extract, vitamin C, green tea, or idebenone. Buy serums when you can since they deliver the strongest dose. Apply to clean skin before applying other products of makeup.

2. SPF is Your Friend

Not only should you protect your eyes from sun damage, but all of your skin needs protection. Choose products with a high SPF, or sun protection factor. Your eye cream should contain an SPF of at least 30. Let the cream become fully absorbed into your skin before applying any other product or make up. For those with sensitive skin, try products with UV blockers, such as zinc oxide. Wear wide, UV protective glasses as well, which will protect you from the sun but prevent you from squinting as well.

3. Smooth out Tiny Lines

Even young people may begin to see tiny, fine lines form around their eyes. Treat these as soon as you see them appear. It’s important to select products that are most effective at producing the results you desire, however. Select products that contain argireline, which is a peptide that reduces the depth of wrinkles, and DMAE, an anti-inflammatory. Both work to tighten the skin temporarily. Dab on the ointment or eye cream after you put on your normal eye cream before you go to bed at night.

4. Cover Dark Circles

Having dark circles under your eyes has an aging affect on your entire look. The first thing you should do to prevent dark circles is to get enough sleep; however, you can get dark circles even when you get plenty of sleep because sometimes you may be fighting genetics as well. Add concealer to your beauty routine, selecting one that is a little lighter and warmer than your natural skin tone to correct discoloration. Then, pat on a tiny bit of powder to set the coverage.

5. Plump up Your Skin

Crinkled, crepe-like skin under the eyes can happen even in your 20s. Fortunately there are extra-rich creams on the market that contain ingredients like glycerin, squalene or panthenol. These ingredients are powerful hydrators and can plump up the skin, reducing the look of fine lines under the eyes. Other ingredients that are effective are hyaluronic acid, which draws water into skin cells; and dimethicone, which creates an oil barrier.

6. Decrease Puffiness

You may have had a late night on the town and drank down one too many margaritas, and you’re paying the price with puffy morning eyes. Although there are several products on the market that will help reduce puffiness, there are a number of home remedies are equally as effective. A cotton ball soaked in cold milk eases puffiness and has soothing proteins and fats. However, a number of items in your freezer might help as well-a bag of frozen peas or corn over the eyes might do the trick.

7. Don’t Ever Rub Your Eyes

The skin around the eyes is extremely delicate, so, to avoid wrinkles and crow’s feet, don’t rub your eyes. No matter how waterproof or long-lasting your make up is, instead of rubbing, dip a cotton ball into makeup remover and blot the makeup from your eyes. When you wake up in the morning, try not to rub your eyes, instead use a tissue and blot the sleep from your eyes.

If you spend time making your eyes look beautiful with makeup, you should also invest time in looking after them. Agreed?
