4 eye care tips: How to keep eyes healthy and beautiful
If you have eyelash extensions, it is recommended that you should take extra care of your eye area. Not only it helps to prolong the extensions, but also protects the skin around your eye from bacteria. Because having beautiful eyes does not stop at longer eyelashes or bigger eyes, it takes more effort to really achieve the natural-yet-gorgeous-looking eyes.
As you age, the skin around your eyes is an area that’s likely to show earlier signs of aging and cause under-eye wrinkles as well as dark circles. If these issues cause weary-looking eyes, check out these helpful eye care tips for prevention methods and home remedies.
1. Avoid sun exposure
Study shows that sunlight between 10 AM to 4 PM contains the most harmful UV rays. Unprotected exposure to UV rays leads to leathery skin and wrinkles, as it breaks down your skin collagen. In the event that you must be outside, always use sunscreen (at least SPF 30), wear a hat, sunglasses and seek shade. This could help you from squinting your eyes – an expression that will cause wrinkles and lines around the eye area.
2. Have a healthy diet
Add more vitamin C, A, and vitamin E in your daily diet. It not only improves your health, but also maintains a firm, younger-looking skin. Consider citrus fruits rich in vitamin C like orange; some vitamin A from carrot for better eyesight, and vitamin E from avocado.
3. Avoid fragrance in face creams/ eye creams
Avoid anything with fragrance as lower eyelid skin can be very sensitive and tend to react to allergy. In the event that allergy occurs around the eye area, it is important to avoid rubbing or scratching as it can contribute to red eyes and inflammation.
4. Get your beauty rest
You should let your eye rest and get at least 6 hours of sleep a night. It is recommended to have around 7 to 8 hours of proper sleep. Scientific research makes clear that sleep is essential at any age. Having a good rest is not only good for your eye, but also helps improve your mental and physical health.
