Spring into the new season with eye care wonders. Double-take worthy results to gently target your client’s eye care issues. Make a beautiful difference in the blink of an eye with Thea Skincare.
The lovely transition into Spring and Summer heralds a lot of skincare changes. It’s time to expel the last wintery vestiges of dullness and tiredness from your client’s skin. At no other time of year than spring is dewy, glowing skin more appropriate. It’s a time for renewal and a resurgence of the skin’s luminosity.
The most obvious area where tiredness manifests is the eyes and it's very true they are the window to the soul. Stresses and skincare deficiencies appear as bags, dark circles, redness, loss of moisture and irritation. This is combined with premature ageing, which is particularly visible in the eye area. Crow’s feet, fine lines, drooping and sagging skin on the lids and under the eyes, can all conspire to add years to client’s faces.
Skin in the eye area is 10 times thinner than on any other part of the face and as a result ages 30% faster than the skin on other parts of the face. As the years go by, this thinness is only exacerbated as natural collagen levels fall. Because the skin is so delicate a daily dab of moisturiser applied in a workday flurry is often not intensive or gentle enough to deal with eye concerns.
Heres' 5 simple celebrity tips that will tell everyone that you eyes have it
1. Remove your eye make up thoroughly before going to bed, no matter how tired you are
I remember ready a quote from Katherine Zeta Jones, who said that the greatest tip that her mum ever gave her when she was young, was to remove all her make-up before going to bed, no matter how tired she was.
Making this part of your lifestyle will stand you in good stead when you get to 50, and even when you're 60. Celebrities follow these basic rules so their skin looks flawless and they often look younger than they actually are. Many of us are fooled by thinking you have to spend a small fortune to look after your skin, it's all hype you can do it on the smallest of budgets, it's just about being consistent with your skincare routine. Natural alcohol free eye cleansers are best for the removal of make-up as they are high in nutrients and nourish the skin as well as remove all the traces of make-up.
2. Avoid using wipes with alcohol to remove your eye make-up
Alcohol laden wipes can cause premature aging as alcohol simply dehydrates the skin which can lead to wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes, so wipes that contain alcohol at all costs. You are better off using a natural face cleanser or a gentle eye lotion cleanser, it may take longer to remove your make up, but I'd rather take an extra few minutes to remove my make up than wake up a few years later looking at wrinkles and bags under my eyes.
3. Invest in a nutrient rich natural eye serum
If there’s one product that I would recommend anyone to invest in as part of their skincare routine, it's a high performance natural eye serum. This is one product that can make such a dramatic difference to the appearance of the skin around and under the eyes. Serums are intensive products with profound concentrations of beautifying vitamins, minerals and other active ingredients. As such they are able to achieve healing and enhancement beyond usual cleansers, moisturisers and toners.There are very few oil producing pores around the eye area, this means that moisture levels are very likely to be low here. Dryness can exacerbate premature ageing and lead to irritations, sagging skin and dark circles.
4. Use a natural sun protection eye cream
Another problem with eye care is the need for sun protection. The skin around the eyes is particularly susceptible to sun damage. Harmful UV rays are by far the biggest contributor to ageing skin and wrinkles around the eyes, than any other source.
Using a natural eye cream with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, MSM (an organic sulphur for lifting and toning the skin), and Vitamin E, will help to protect the skin around the eyes against sun damage. Vitamin E is a natural UV protector so skincare products that contain Vitamin E, provide age defying benefits without harsh chemical additives. High performance ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Blue Green Algae, boost the eye’s moisture content and radiance whilst fixing fine lines and wrinkles and they also have an uplifting effect.
5. Drink a glass of water before you go to bed
Yes, it's boring I know the same old adage, drinking water to hydrate the skin but no matter how boring it is, we're made up of 90% water, and we need to flush out toxins not only on the outside of our bodies but on the inside too. Try drinking a glass of warm water before going to bed as it really does work and will clean you out on the inside whilst you sleep and rehydrate the skin.
Look after your eyes and your eyes will look after you, and even when you're 50, if you're not already there, you'll be glad you did, and you'll still be able to say my eyes have it.
