When it comes to looking younger, people think that you should always start by eliminating blemishes on the skin. With this, people focus more on covering up these imperfections. What people often forget is that a youthful glow can also be achieved by taking care of this often-neglected part of the face: the eyes.
The best way to keep your eyes looking youthful is by properly taking care of it. To do so, just remember CREAM: Clean, Rest, Eat, and Apply Makeup.
Makeup is an easy go-to option for people who want to look younger. However, it does not take away the fact that your face still looks tired and dull. If you want a longer-lasting effect on your appearance, start with cleaning your face properly. Wash your face regularly and apply the right kind of moisturizer for your skin type. Using an eye lift serum before going to bed will also help give your tired eyes a boost.
Aside from the overall health benefits, rest and sleep will also do wonders on your eyes. Try to make it a habit to get enough sleep and rest your eyes in between your daily chores. If you look at the computer screen every day at work, give your eyes some rest by looking at a distance, preferably at something green. Take a break and try to walk around, away from your computer for at least a minute or two every two hours. This will prevent you from having dry and tired-looking eyes.
Food that are rich in zeaxanthin and lutein have been known to improve your eyesight, and adding it to your diet can be beneficial to your eyes. Spinach, for instance, has a high lutein and zeaxanthin content. Corn and kale also contains these, so a healthy serving of salad with these ingredients will help improve the condition of your eyes. Eggs are also a natural source of lutein, and it even has Vitamin E – which is also essential in keeping your skin healthy.
After cleaning, resting, and eating well, you can use makeup to enhance your beauty. Brightening up your face can be done by using proper eye makeup. Choose makeup that is not only safe on your skin, but also helps in nourishing it.
Start with trimming your eyebrows properly and applying enough moisturizer on your face before putting on any kind of makeup. You can also boost the effect of your eye makeup by using a good eye cream. The best eye cream to use is one that moisturizes and helps tighten the skin around your eye area. Make sure to let the moisturizing products dry first before you proceed with your makeup routine.
After moisturizing, use a primer to make your makeup last longer. For a fresh look, choose an eye shadow in peach, pink, or neutral colors. Apply the rest of your eye makeup, but be sure not to forcefully stroke the brush on your eyes – using light strokes will also do the trick, and at the same time you can avoid putting unnecessary stress on the skin around your eyes.
Attaining those youthful eyes will help you look at yourself (literally and figuratively) in a more positive light. People respond well to positive energy and confidence, so take the time to improve yourself even with just doing something as simple as taking care of your eyes.
