While it's important to take care of your eyes, it's also equally as important to take care of the skin around them. The thin skin around your eyes is more delicate than the skin on other parts of your face or body, and it is also more likely to show early signs of premature aging and result in issues such as dark circles, fine lines and puffiness.
Looking for a way to refresh tired-looking eyes? Read on for a 3-step guide to caring for the skin around your eyes more effectively.
Step 0: Relax
When your eyes feel tired, pull away from the screen and focus on something in the distance. Then return your focus to an object near you. Repeat this several times to challenge your focus and relax your ciliary muscles.
Step 1: Tap
Apply a pea-sized amount of eye serum like Know More Invigoration Eye Serum, or other skincare products that spread easily (such as face oil) on your ring finger. Rub both ring fingers together to warm up the product.
P.S. Your ring finger naturally has the lightest touch, so it won’t tug on your delicate eye area.
Starting at the lower outer corner of your eye, tap on the skin in a gentle dotting motion. Finish at the upper outer corner of your eye. Repeat.
Step 2: Pull
Starting at the lower inner corner of your eye, gently glide your finger toward your temple twice and pull the skin upwards.
Step 3: Press
Gently press on the skin above your cheekbone and brow bone with your knuckles repeatedly. This will help improve the blood circulation around your eyes.
Step 4: Feel
Practice daily, and say goodbye to tired eyes and fine lines!
Good skincare (and application) is the way to go if you want to ward off dark circles, fine lines and puffy eyes in the long run. It's time to give that much-needed love to the skin around your eyes and incorporate these game-changing tips into your skin routine tonight!
