The skin around the eyes is one of the most delicate areas of the body as it is 10 times thinner than the rest of the body and dries out very easily. In addition, it does not have enough sebaceous glands or collagen fibers and, to increase its delicacy, circulation in the area does not occur as quickly as the rest of the body. This combo causes it to be a vulnerable place for bags, dark circles and wrinkles to form.

Having good health habits and adequate routines make us stop premature aging. The good news is that there are many things we can do, in our daily lives, to prevent tired eyes.

1.- Sleep! When you sleep 7 to 8 hours a day, your body rests and the skin can carry out all its processes, such as drainage; the muscles recover their place and we avoid the appearance of dark circles.

2.- Before going to sleep… remove your make-up! We already know that, sometimes, you are exhausted and all you want is to dive into your bed but NEVER go to sleep with your makeup on. Use a biphasic eye makeup remover that makes it easier to remove mascara. Put it on with your fingers and thus take advantage of giving a little massage that helps to drain everything that has accumulated during the day. Then wash your face with a mild soap. Pat yourself dry with a soft washcloth that you use only for your face.

3.- Wear glasses! (against UV rays and blue light). Even if you don't need magnifying glasses, it is recommended that you wear glasses with lenses that protect your eyes (and the skin around them) from UV rays and blue light. Thus, we kill two birds with one stone and protect both your sight and your gaze.

4.- Drink a lot of water! Being hydrated always improves all the processes of your body.

5.- Moisturize your skin! Eye here. You can not use any moisturizer around the eyes. You must take into account your age, your specific needs (there are creams with a lifting effect, anti-wrinkle, anti-dark circles, anti-puffiness…there are even creams to stimulate eyelash growth!) and your pocket. The good thing is that, at Dermaexpress, we have many options for each of your needs.
