Caring For The Skin Around Your Eyes.

The skin is very delicate, especially the areas around your eyes.Not only harsh weathers but several other factors can affect this delicate area causing blood vessels to show, shrinking of the skin, puffiness, redness or bags and also, dark circles developing under the eye area.

- Shrinking of the skin around the eyes can be as a result of dehydration of the skin. In order to avoid this, make sure you wash your face thoroughly every night and use a mild cleansing product or a few drops of baby shampoo to cleanse the eye area especially if you have very sensitive skin. A moisturizer, preferably one containing hyaluronic acid should then be used and properly massaged into this area until its completely absorbed by the skin.

- Puffiness appears as redness and bags appearing under the eyes or on the eyelids. This can be caused by anti-aging products, especially those containing perfume. The skin around your eye is very delicate, so if you must use anti-aging products or some other face/eye creams, choose one that is perfume free.
* Alcohol also causes puffiness. Alcohol dehydrates the skin when taken and puffiness is usually a symptom of this. I'm not saying you should deny yourself a glass of cocktail every other day but make sure you take plenty of water afterwards and sleep on a lofty pillow.

- Blood vessels showing under the eyelids are actually very common. Its caused mostly by harsh products, so always choose products containing Vitamin K because it stimulates blood circulation in the skin around the eyes.

The eye area is one delicate part of our total facial beauty that ages quickly and gets affected by the most unthinkable things. So, take out time to care for it specially, so you don't start concealing and concealing all your flaws at a very early stage.

Weekends are also a good day to relax with a soaked teabag or cucumber slice on your eyes for a few minutes. It won't also hurt to rest your eyes for a few hours over the weekend without staring into your computer screen or phones.

Thanks a lot for reading, make sure you share with a friend and also leave me a comment if you have any questions.



  1. Hi,what causes the dark cirles? And what can be done to remove it.thanks

  2. Dehydration of the skin & also cleansing products with high alcohol content can cause dark circles to appear under the eyes. Also avoid using whitening creams & other harsh products on the skin around your eyes. So I'll advice you buy a good face moisturizer & a mild cleanser.

  3. Good job you are doing.Please I need your help. Can you recommend a good face powder for me?. Thanks

    1. Thanks a lot. There are lots of brands you can pick from. Iman, Marykay, BlackUp, Blackopal etc.
      I like Iman pressed powder personally because you can always skip using your foundation with this product, just make sure you pick the right shade.

  7. There are lots of mild facial cleansers and face moisturizers that you can use. For cleansers I personally always recommend Nuetrogena Clear pore or Clean & Clear. So you can make your choice.

    Then for moisturizers, your skin type determines which one you should buy.You can also use your body lotion/cream.
