Hoping to avoid crow's feet?

You can minimize the development of wrinkles around your eyes by applying sunscreen (but remember, not too close to your eyes), and wearing protective eyewear (such as wrap-around sunglasses) or a hat.

Some wrinkles are produced by the repeated movement of the skin through facial expressions, others occur as a result of sun damage. The regular use of a quality moisturizer is the first basic step to reducing the look of existing lines. When selecting a product, remember that price is not a reflection of quality.

Well hydrated skin appears noticeably smoother and even textured. Continued regular use of a moisturizer in combination with daytime application of a sheer foundation will vastly improve your overall complexion. Implement a nighttime eye treatment just before bed to allow your skin to soak up the nourishing ingredients and help regenerate your skin's appearance. Also, try incorporating daily sun protection with an SPF-rated moisturizer to reduce further photodamage to your skin.

Eyelid care

Cream cleansing formulas can gently dissolve the daily build-up of dirt, makeup and mascara, while still keeping the skin around the eyes hydrated. The skin on your eyelids is especially delicate and requires a gentle touch and special care. These sensitive areas can easily become irritated, so moisturizing at bedtime can protect them.

When choosing a moisturizer, be sure to find one that is specifically formulated for use next to the eyes to avoid irritation. Adequate hydration with moisturizers can also diminish the look of fine lines around the eyes and prepare a smother surface for makeup application.

Look for gentle, non-sensitizing products and avoid ones that have an oily feel, because these have the potential to clog pores and cause irritation by seeping into your eyes. The regular use of a hat or sunglasses can also help to protect against premature wrinkling of the skin area around your eyes.

Special care for under your eyes

There are multiple reasons for dark circles to form under your eyes. The skin under your eyes is thin, making the underlying tissues more visible. Also, with less fatty tissue and the constant motion of facial skin and muscles in this region, wrinkles are more likely to form.

Genetics play a role by affecting skin tone and texture. The contrast between skin tone and the darker coloured skin under the eyes will likely be more apparent in those with fair skin. Sun exposure can enhance the pigment under the eyes and darken the existing colour. Avoid rubbing your eyes, as this can cause dilation of blood vessels and bruising.

Getting adequate sleep is essential to reducing puffiness and dark circles. If you're maintaining a healthy lifestyle and the dark circles are still a bother, use of concealers and foundations can even out your skin tone and provide a quick cosmetic solution. Just before bed, apply a moisturizer that's specifically formulated to sooth, protect and hydrate this especially delicate facial region. Use of an eye cream will provide a smoother texture to the area by filling in fine lines to improve the look of dark circles.
