Send Those Bags Packing With the Best Under Eye Wrinkle Cream

If you are suffering from bags, dark circles or wrinkles underneath your eyes chances are you are looking for a safe and effective way to get rid of them or at least significantly reduce them. What you need is an under eye wrinkle cream that will do just that.

As you know, your eyes tell a lot about you and you want them to look healthy and probably take a few years off them. However, I know how difficult a task it is to find products that are effective and safe.

Let’s take a look at what cause those wrinkles to form in the first place. As you age your body begins to lose its ability to produce collagen and elastin. These are two vital proteins to give your skin the resiliency it needs to keep it firm and smooth.

While the production of these two proteins is breaking down so is the skin cells and those capillaries and nerves. This allows gravity to take over and begin to pull your skin down.

To top it off your sebaceous glands that use to produce a certain amount of oil making your skin supple, it too is hardly producing enough oil to keep your skin supple. Because the skin around your eyes is thin it is very prone to bruising and damage. All this leads to the wrinkles and dark circles under your eyes.

I know it sounds hopeless, but rest assured all is not lost. By learning how to take care of your skin now you can have perfect skin in the future without all those wrinkles. Taking care of your skin now will save you lots of agony in the future.

Start by finding a good under eye wrinkle cream. To begin, check the products you are already using, they might just contain similar ingredients to the expensive ones that are being advertised. So you know you don’t want to purchase any of those.

Treating the skin around your eyes is a bit different as it is vulnerable and prone to wrinkling easily, you want to ensure you are using an under eye wrinkle cream that can treat that area alone.

Tackling under eye wrinkles require the most sensitive ingredients. Look at the product you are now using. If it does not contain natural substances then you probably should not be using it to treat your eye area. Look for natural products that contain healing antioxidants and natural moisturizers. Ensure your under eye wrinkle cream contain SPF, most of them don’t. Many times women think the cream they are using will protect them from the UV rays of the sun, when in fact they do not.

To keep your eyes looking younger you need a good moisturizer to keep that area well moisturized.

Antioxidants – They will keep your skin well moisturized and help to fight off free radicals which are the main culprits for those wrinkles being formed in the first place.

Using honey is also recommended. Most honey will do, however if you can find Manuka Honey, from New Zealand you will be doing your skin a favor in helping to ward off those wrinkles.

When applying your natural eye cream, properly cleanse the area, do not use any harsh cleansers and never pull or tug on that area. Apply in a gently patting motion to ensure the skin does not become further damaged.

It does not matter who you are, no one wants to have bags, wrinkles or dark circles underneath their eyes. You must be very careful when choosing products to use on that area.

Seeing dry flaky patches on your skin? Does your skin feel tight and uncomfortable? Are your hands dry, chapped prone to paper cuts and even bleeding?

First and foremost you need to hydrate your skin but read on for tips and tricks to keep you skin look and feel soft and smooth all winter long.

  1. Remove dry skin. This is called “Exfoliation”. Use a loofah or body scrub on your body to exfoliate dry skin, however, you must be much more careful with the delicate facial skin. Even washing your face with a soft washcloth may be sufficient to gently exfoliate dry winter skin from the face. Take care with facial scrubs or peels as vigorous cleansing of the face may cause irritation or breakouts.
  2. Drink water. Keeping your skin hydrated from the inside is added insurance to keep skin feeling and looking it’s best. Drink up to 8 glasses of water or green tea. Caffeinated beverages rob skin of hydration, so limit coffee, soda and other caffeinated beverages.
  3. Protect skin from UV rays. It is important to use a sunscreen all year round to limit skin’s exposure to damaging UV rays. If you moisturizer does not include an SPF just simply add a few drops of your favorite sunscreen coupled with a few drops of your moisturizer to your palm. Warm the two together and apply to your face, neck and décolleté.
  4. Night time Treatment. Caring for your skin over-night is very important. While your body is at rest during the night it restores itself. Make sure to cleanse all traces of makeup off your face and top with a rich moisturizer. Use a dedicated eye cream around the eye contours because the delicate skin around the eyes is thinner than the rest of your face and cannot absorb the richer facial moisturizers. Rich facial moisturizers may cause your eyes to puff up and swell, so always use an eye cream on and around the eye contour.
  5. Hand, feet and Lips. Don’t forget your extremities in the cold weather. Dry cracked heels, lips or hands may bleed or ache with discomfort. Use a rich emollient like Vaseline or Aquaphor on hands and feet and cover with cotton gloves or socks to retain moisture while you sleep. Slough away dry flaky skin with a pumice stone on feet or a loofah during your shower as an added measure. Slather Vaseline or Aquaphor on lips just prior to bed for added hydration. Licking your lips will only add to dryness and chapping. Keep lips slick with balm or moisturizing ointment all day long.
  6. Avoid hot showers. As comforting as they may seem, they rob the skin of moisture! Try to use tepid water and avoid extreme temperatures on the skin all year round. Follow with baby-oil or body moisturizer after your shower or bath to lock in the moisture.
  7. Avoid Alcohol Based Skin Care Products. Alcohol is drying and will further rob your skin of much need moisture. Look at the top 3-4 ingredients in your skin care products and avoid using these products in the cold moisture-sapping winter weather.
  8. Use a humidifier. Keep one on overnight in your bedroom to add moisture to the air around you. This in turn will keep the heated air from robbing the hydration from your skin.
  9. Skip the soap. Soaps can be drying and harsh on the skin. Use a moisturizing cleansing bar or lotion, that will be less drying. This applies to face, hands and body.
  10. Most importantly: Add moisture. The cold outdoors coupled with overheated homes, offices and cars both contribute to drying out the skin. Using a moisturizer appropriate for your skin type both morning and night is the absolute best way to treat dryness.
