The Eyes Are Windows To The Soul: How To Keep Yours Looking Beautiful

Monday, September 05, 2016

Eyes are the one feature that is consistently ranked as something that people find most attractive in a partner. They’re so important as they’re how we view the world, and are also how we connect with others. However, since they are such a delicate area they require special care. Here are some of the ways you can make sure yours stay in good health and looking beautiful.

Stick To A Good Skincare Routine

A great anti-aging eye product should be part of every woman’s skincare routine. The earlier you start with this, the better, and can even be started as young as the teenage years. It will help to keep the delicate under eye area supple and hydrated. It can also either prevent fine lines or help to smooth them, depending on your age and the product. Always be very gentle applying the product, and be sure to choose something that’s specifically designed for under the eyes. Your regular facial moisturizer will be far too heavy. Using an eye cream that contains SPF, and keeping your eyes protected from the sun as much as possible will also help to prevent premature aging. As if you needed another excuse to buy a gorgeous pair of oversized sunglasses!

Stay Hydrated and Eat Well

Keeping hydrated and eating a wide range of fruits and vegetables will help to keep your skin and body at its best. This includes under the eyes, as well as your eyes themselves. For eye health choose citrus, eggs, nuts, beans and green leafy vegetables. For skin health include tuna, sunflower seeds, olive oil and tomatoes into your diet. Although making good food choices and eating a selection of different healthy ingredients will ensure your body gets everything it needs.

Get Enough Sleep

Lack of sleep will always show in your eyes first. We’re all familiar with the red, puffy eyes and dark circles that a bad night’s sleep can bring. Other symptoms can include dry, sore eyes and even eyelid twitches. But a lack of sleep is also damaging to your eyes in the long run too. It can lead to popped blood vessels, eye strain and under eye bags that don’t go away even after adequate sleep. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep each night to maintain general good health, as well as keep your eyes at their best.

Correct Major Issues With Cosmetic Surgery

Some people are genetically prone to things like dark circles, which will never go away despite how much rest they get. Plus over time, the face can droop and pull down the eyes giving the a permanently sad or angry expression. Others might notice permanent puffiness in the eyelids. Luckily there are a number of cosmetic procedures that can significantly improve the look of these conditions. Eyelid lift surgery, eye bag removal, brow lifts are just a few. It’s good to know that even if you did leave it too late for a skincare routine to have a noticeable effect, or you have a genetic issue that can’t be fixed with a healthy lifestyle, there are still options.

Go For Regular Eye Checkups

Visiting an optician every two years for an eye test is recommended. Not only is this to check for any vision issues that can be corrected with glasses, but to test the health of the eye too and any underlying conditions.
