All about the eyes

How do you treat the most delicate piece of skin on your face? There are various ways to moisturize the skin around your eyes. You should select a product that meets your special needs, which may also include a serum. Make sure you apply the product with clean hands, start with a dotting motion and gently massage the cream from the inner part of your eyes towards the outer part.

Pay a bit more attention to puffy bags or little fine lines by applying just a bit more of the cream in the night. Like a mask for the night. And ladies be aware! The cream adapts to the temperature of your skin. This means that the creams travels… Apply the cream a few millimeters away from your eye lids to avoid the cream slipping into your eyes when it expands. If you want to wear eye make-up, give the cream 2-3 minutes to sink in.

An airless dispenser or airless pump bottle is perfect to use because you don’t have to dip your fingers in a pot of cream, which is less hygienic and lets you run the risk of catching an infection.

An excellent product (which I use myself) is:

Recently a Pakistani fan of Beauty Laws asked me what to do with dark circles around the eyes. I love the interaction with my readers. She inspired me to write about it. I advised her:

  • Use an eye cream with active ingredients (such as retinol), you can also use an oil with nutritional benefits (vitamin E) such as sesame of almond oil
  • Eat healthy (a balanced diet with fruit and veggies)
  • Drink enough water (2 liters per day)
  • Get plenty of sleep (7-9 hours per day)
  • Stop smoking (if you are a smoker)
  • Use the peel of a cucumber on the eyes, since the peel contains more nutritional benefits. (That’s what I do on a regular basis, in the morning while I prepare my smoothie.)
  • Relax!
  • Genetics, age or allergies might also be a cause. In this case it’s not easy to get rid of the dark circles. Try to accept this and use a good concealer.
