The contour of the eyes and eyelids has the most fragile skin of the face. Specifically is 5 times thinner than the rest of the face and 10 times finer than the body … ie it has 0.004 ml thick, very little. It is poor in collagen, elastin and fat … but almost never rests. Their muscles contract around 22 8 to 12 times per minute and that muscle contraction is repeated which causes the appearance of wrinkles. Furthermore, if someday you sleep badly or have a cold, lymphatic microcirculation in the area-and sanguínea- will suffer and store more water than normal. So swollen eyelids, bags and dark circles appear. What is there to do then? Keep calm and put your hand all the resources you have at your fingertips. And they are many.
In addition to a daily and rigorous entire eye area cleansing, the skin around the eyes needs hydration and nutrition – especially if you have a skin sensitive type – but with specific products do not serve you the same moisturizers and nutritious than the rest of the face. In the delicate area around the eyes formulas would be unacceptably aggressive, with too much sebum, for example, and could ‘collapse it’.
Thus, from 25-30 years, after cleaning apply a small amount of specific product -equivalent to a grain of rice on each side- under the lower eyelids and the bony part of the top of the cheekbone. Distribute it and spread it by massaging pat ring finger -yes in which wear the engagement ring or pinky casada- or because they are the fingers that have less force. If you have eye bags beam moves from outside to inside to encourage drainage and if you do not, from the inside out. In both cases, this small favor massage lymphatic and blood microcirculation but never have to press because, remember, the skin is only 0.004 ml and then suffers. Apply this thin layer of product every day, at night and in the morning and although there are specific to each of these moments, can also use the same in both cases.
Look for products with moisturizing agents such as glycerin (also called propanetriol or glycerol) that give a silky texture to the skin. Regenerators as retinol and hyaluronic acid. Antioxidants such as vitamin E and C, able to curb the effects of free radicals. And with stimulating effects, as having caffeine and decongestants like hamammelis, cucumber and some hot springs. In addition choose those with sunscreen and penetrate quickly.
