There is no denying that the eye region calls for special attention. Not taking care of this eye area is basically begging your skin to have spots and wrinkles well in advance and if the eyes are the window of the soul, their frame, in turn, is the first area of the face to show signs of aging. In addition to being a super-sensitive area of the skin, underneath it, there is musculature that is constantly activated to move the eyelids. That's why the eyes develop so many wrinkles with time.
Here are 5 important things to know about the skin around the eyes.
1. The eye region has a lot of spider veins
To irrigate the eyes, a complex system of blood microvessels is hidden under the skin. When hemoglobin (a blood protein) is deposited in the surrounding cells, due to factors such as tiredness or genetics, purplish dark circles start to appear.
2. There is no specific age for wrinkles and spots to appear
Due to a variety of reasons such as sun exposure, stress, genetics, alcohol, tobacco use, among others, some people may develop wrinkles earlier. Thus, dermatologists recommend that preventive eye region care should start from the age of 25, at least. Preventive care doesn't even have to consist of anti-aging creams, which has little effect on this age group. For younger folks, moisturizers with antioxidants like vitamin C are everything the eye area needs and Ayele's Virgin Rose Eye Cream is a great place to start.
3. The sun does even greater damage in this area
Up to 10% of skin tumors occur on the eyelids, a region that is often neglected during the application of sunscreen. Not to mention that the sun's rays cause spots and darkening under the eyes, so the solution is to use SPF and good old sunglasses as needed.
4. Eyes get deeper in the course of life
Over the years, the body begins to reabsorb the fat pockets that support the skin of the face. This process and the loss of bone mass, which intensifies after the age of 40, give the impression that the eye is more sunken. The process is accelerated by a lifestyle consisting of the use of cigarettes, sun, stress and bad habits such as poor sleep and nutrition.
5. Eyes always denounce when something is wrong
Because of the delicate structure, the region is subject to allergic reactions and other irritations caused by the inappropriate use of cosmetics. Watch for redness, itching, burning and peeling.
