"The eyes are the mirror of the soul" - there is such a saying, and I agree with it. However, the skin around the eyes can reveal our health and age, which is a particularly disturbing topic for every woman. Let's try to find out how to take care of the skin around the eyes so that it looks more elastic, smooth and healthy.
It is worth knowing that the skin around the eyes is several times thinner than the skin of other parts of our body. In this zone, there are practically no sebaceous glands and subcutaneous fatty tissue. In addition, the vascular network is located superficially, which makes it more vulnerable to mechanical influences (friction, stretching, etc.)
In addition, the lifestyle and habits also affect the skin around the eyes, for example, disturbance of sleep or overfatigue contributes to the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, smoking - the appearance of early wrinkles, improper care - to stretching the skin in the eyelids, edema, and lack of water in the body to dry skin. General health and lack of vitamins also give us information about ourselves as to our skin condition. Pay attention also to the quality of cosmetics that you use - incorrectly selected or allergenic, it can damage the health of your skin.
Having started using make-up cosmetics, you need to know how to properly remove makeup and use the right products to cleanse and moisturize the skin.
Removal of make-up is done with the help of special products such as milk, micellar water or oils (avoid using soap as it dries the skin!) When doing this procedure, you should try not to stretch the skin of the eyelids, the movements should be gentle, without strong pressure.
Moisturizing, it should be taken into consideration that to care for the delicate skin of the eyelids, it is necessary to choose the lightest creams and gels. Typically, the cream should be applied twice a day, in the morning (15-20 minutes before applying makeup) and in the evening (preferably a couple of hours before bedtime). The movements should be easy, tapping, performed by the middle and ring fingers. Rubbing means - means stretching the skin so it is not recommended!
How to apply a cream?
First of all, the cream is applied only on the line of the eye socket. It is not recommended to apply cream to eyelids and the line of eyelashes to avoid swelling and irritation.
Applying the cream on the lower part of the eyelid, the movements should be directed from the outer corner of the eye to the inner corner, and for the upper part, vice versa, from the inner corner to the outer corner. Normally, an amount close to one match head of the cream is sufficient to be used on one eye.
As additional methods, one can mention daily washing with cold water, as well as the use of ice cubes to treat the area around the eyes, which will not only improve the appearance of the skin but also enhance blood circulation, saturate it with oxygen.

Mask recipes for the skin around the eyes
Everyone knows the old way to get rid of puffiness with the help of slices of cucumber, placed on closed eyelids. Crude potatoes are also suitable for this procedure (preferably grind it on a fine grater, wrap in gauze and apply for 10-15 minutes), as well as ice cubes and herbal compresses (sage, mint, dill).
Probably, someone will want to use self-made natural oil for eyes: mix tablespoon of Basil oil (olive, apricot kernel, almond or jojoba) with 2-3 drops of vitamin E. This product is great to be used as a moisturizer for eyelids with a cotton swab in the morning and in the evening.
