Eyes

How do I help my Eyes?

The skin around the eye area needs consistent, extra-attentive TLC. This is because the delicate skin tissue surrounding the eye area is more fragile and thinner than skin elsewhere on your body. As we age, collagen production slows down and the skin around the eyes can become even thinner, losing elasticity and leaving it sagging and drooping.

Other than aging and the slowing down of collagen production, there are different negative factors that can affect the skin surrounding eyes and its ability to remain looking perky. Factors such as photo damage from the sun, smoking, environmental toxins and even facial movements, like squinting, can ruin skin over time. Allergies can cause swelling around the eyes or that crepe-paper-thin look when the skin becomes dehydrated.

Under-eye dark circles are also detrimental to the eyes' appearance. Dark circles can be caused by a lack of sleep, genetics or allergies. Under-eye dark circle appearance comes from thin skin and when blood vessels are more visible under the skin. The condition creates a discoloration, resembling a bruise. Other causes of under-eye discolorations can be from skin conditions such as Melasma or from sun damage, which causes the overproduction of melanin. (skin color)

A skin condition that tends to get little coverage around the eye area is under-eye Milia. Milia are hard, round white spots that resemble a pimple, but are very hard to get rid of because of their size and location. Milia show up just about anywhere on the body, but are more prone to be found around the eye area, especially the eye lid and underneath the eye. Milia is caused by keratin that can get trapped beneath the skin's surface, creating a hard white or yellow cyst. Milia, which are harmless,can easily be removed by a dermatologist with a lancet.

One of the more popular eye conditions of concern are pesky crow's feet. Crows feet are deep wrinkles located at the outer corners of our eyes.  These fine lines and wrinkles start to set in around the age of 30 and they become more in-depth and prominent as collagen synthesis slows down with age. To properly treat any issues pertaining to the eye area, including crows feet, it's important to understand that the skin tissue surrounding the eye area is extremely sensitive and delicate, but it’s the first place to show the effects of aging.

Professional skincare products combined with a proper skin regimen can properly treat all of the conditions listed above. High-grade products include ingredients that are capable of gently, yet effectively improving the delicate skin tissue around the eyes.

Find the love in your eye skin care: sagging eye contour

As we age, we start to lose the intensity of the elasticity in our skin. Around our eyes, we can get a drooping, sagging layer of skin that has a tendency to make our eyes look tired and worn out. There are other conditions that can cause sagging of the eye lid and eye contour. Specifically, eye injuries, the resulting nerve damage and even migraine headaches, can all cause eyelids to droop. Other than medical conditions or trauma, a lack of collagen production during aging can cause a loss of skin elastin, which has similar undesirable effects over the long...
