Hi, I’m Kim with SImply Beautiful in Austin, Texas. One of the biggest concerns I get when I’m talking to my clients is about the wrinkles under their eyes. As we get older that’s the thing we as women tend to be most concerned about.
Keeping those away or getting rid of them as we get older. Today we’re going to talk a little bit about how to keep that skin moist. That’s the most important thing to help reduce the wrinkles an how to keep them away if you don’t have them yet.
What we’re going to do is ask you to continue with your great skin care regime, rinse, cleanse, tone, moisturize. But, when we’re talking about the eye area, it’s a very delicate area of your skin. The skin around your eyes tends to be thinner than the rest of your face.
So, we want products that are molecularly different than the facial products. So, we want really, really gentle products. I want you to use a very, very, if you could close them Nancy, use a very gentle eye makeup remover and just pat.
There’s no pulling on your eyes, even when you’re doing your eye makeup. Don’t pull your eye like this because there’s only a certain amount of elasticity in your eyes. Once you use it up, then it’s gone.
So, start with a, after you cleanse your eye, get a good clean surface, start with a pearl size of a serum. Use the serum that you choose. There’s some moisturizing serums, there’s some anti-puffiness and dark circle serums.
But this is a firming antioxidant serum. It’s going to help build collagen and that’ll puff out the wrinkles a little bit. This is called Laser 5X from Lancome. I love it, it really helps the collagen under the skin to rebuild itself and puff out.
Kind of pushes the wrinkles up. Because skin tends to get a little lose as we age, it’s a loss of elasticity, you may want to try a firming eye cream. Just a little bit between your ring fingers and patting.
No pulling, remember, no pulling on the eyes, just patting. We don’t need eye cream in this area, there’s enough moisture in that area. If you actually put eye cream in that area, you’re going to have more puffiness.
So, the trick to preventing and diminishing under eye wrinkles is to keep it moist. Drink lots of water, get your exercise, reduce stress, if you smoke stop smoking, and that’s how we’re going to keep from looking older faster.
