The right gestures to moisturise the eye contour
A fragile area par excellence, the eye contour area requires special attention to remain well hydrated. If the eye area is a reflection of the soul, it is also a reflection of our lifestyle and the passage of time: fatigue and lack of sleep lead to theappearance of dark circles, repeated eyelid fluttering eventually gives rise to wrinkles and fine lines, not to mention thebags under the eyes that weigh down the look... Here are a few tips for taking care of your eye area, naturally!
The eye area, a naturally fragile zone
The fragility of the eye area is explained by the thinness of the skin in this area: it is in fact the thinnest area of the face, which makes it de facto more vulnerable to the slightest aggression. It is also poor insebaceous glands, which secrete sebum, the oily substance that protects the skin, as well as in collagen and elastin, both responsible for skin firmness. Add to this the extreme demands of daily life, with some 10,000 eye beats per day, and you have all the elements to show marked signs of ageing and a tired look if you don't take good care of the eye contour area with simple gestures and a good crèto moisturise the skin !
Eye contour: foods that are good for you
Beautiful skin often originates from the plate... and the eye area is no exception to this rule! Fruits and vegetables, rich in anti-oxidants, will slow down skin ageing and delay the appearance of marked wrinkles. Vegetable oils, dried fruits and their essential fatty acids work to keep the skin supple, and of course sufficient water consumption (2L per day minimum) is a prerequisite to ensure good hydration of the body in general, and the skin in particular. If you are prone to puffiness, it's best to limit cold cuts and all foods with a high salt content: these encourage water retention and swelling of the eyelids.
Soothe the eye area with natural solutions ?
If you tend to have puffy eyelids, there is a very good home remedy: tea! This plant is rich in caffeine, a substance that tightens blood vessels and promotes drainage. To benefit from its anti-inflammatory action, place tea bags in the freezer (you can use already brewed tea bags, preferably organic green or black tea), then place them over your closed eyes for a few minutes. The combined action of the cold and theine will boost blood circulation and reduce puffiness, for a more dynamic look!
A very good alternative isCornflower Water ,applied as a compress to the eyes, which hydrates and soothes swollen eyelids naturally. Choose a pure hydrolate, without perfume to limit the risk of skin reaction, and organic if possible to take advantage of all its benefits.
Finally, you can reactivate blood circulation and erase dark circles and puffiness in a natural way by alternating between a glove (or compress) soaked in warm water and a glove soaked in cold water: invigorating and decongesting effect guaranteed!
A little massage?
A 100% natural tip to care for the eye area and combine hydration and decongestion? Massage ! Take a small amount of your usual eye care product and apply it by gently massaging the upper and lower eyelids.
