Considering our eyes are a focal point of our face, it’s no surprise that we want them to look as young, vibrant, and lively as possible. It’s for this reason and then some that many are trying to figure out the secrets to having younger-looking eyes. Unfortunately, the results aren’t going to happen overnight and there is certainly no magic pill, but with effort, your eyes may appear to look younger than they have in some time. The following are some ideas to keep in mind when you’re interested in younger looking eyes that have a fresher appearance.
If you haven’t started using primer yet, you may find it advantageous to do so. It essentially works to create a good base surface so there’s less of a chance of makeup settling into fine lines and wrinkles. Make sure to apply primer over your crow’s feet if you have any but don’t get too close to the eyes so the product gets in there, especially if you know you’ll be sweating.
Puffy eyes can make you look exhausted, ill, and older, but it’s a good thing that there are numerous options that you can try to help reduce the puffiness. There are a variety of methods that people swear by ranging from cool metal spoons to aloe to tea bags, so it’s up to you to find the solution that works best for you and your particular skin.
Be Careful With Your Brows
Eyebrows tend to thin out as we age and that can make us look older, but in an effort to try and make them look better, there are quite a few people who over-pluck to the point where there’s barely anything left. You’re better off leaving your eyebrows to a professional. While you can fill them in – using brow powder is a personal favorite – as far as cleaning them up goes, you’re better off scheduling an appointment to have them done by someone who can evaluate your bone structure and go from there.
Protect Yourself From the Sun
The sun’s rays aren’t always so great for your skin. For example, they could make dark under eye circles worse or they can contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, yes, even around the eye area. Your best option is to apply sunscreen before you leave the house, reapply it throughout the day every couple of hours or after you sweat or you’ve been swimming, and don’t forget to wear your sunglasses that have wide arms.
Now that you know a little more about how to try and have younger looking eyes, all you have to do is start a regimen that works best for you. Once again, the results aren’t going to happen overnight, but with effort, you’ll likely – gradually – notice positive changes. Should you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact your dermatologist who can offer you personalized advice and provide you with answers that you need regarding what your next steps should be.
