Did you wake up this morning and look in the mirror and think who is that? Where did those lines around my eyes come from? Were they there yesterday? What can I do now? The skin around your eyes is different from the rest of your face... It needs a intensive care.
Dark circles and puffiness could be a sign of toxic overload. Traditional Chinese Medicine says this area relates to your kidneys.
Here are 7 facts you need to know:
- The eye area is lacking in oil glands that help keep this skin moist so we need to use products that help hydrate the drier eye skin and help it to look smoother. Antioxidant ingredients assist in retaining collagen in the skin.
- The skin under your eyes is thinner (it can be upto 10 times thinner than the skin on the rest of your face). It shows signs of aging more quickly and it’s much more delicate and vulnerable than the rest of your face.
- As you age this delicate skin around your eyes get even thinner due to a loss of collagen and elatsin.
- The skin around the eyes is being used constantly - every time you smile or squint or blink. Over time we develop small wrinkles (Crow's feet).
- There are many capillaries in this area that can lead to puffiness if fluid builds up there. Allergies and sinus problems can cause this too. The thinner skin makes this more prominent.
- Many facial products contain ingredients that irritate the eye area such as added sunscreen so using a separate eye cream can be gentler on your eyes.
- Dark circles and puffiness could be a sign of toxic overload. Traditional Chinese Medicine says this area relates to your kidneys. Your organs may be overloaded dealing with toxins. Adequate sleep and water can help but it may go deeper.
