Eyecare is very important because our eye area skin is very prone to aging. The eye area is very thin and very fragile, only 0.33-0.36 mm thick, which is about 1/5 of the thickness of the face. Therefore, we need to pay attention to eye care, because the skin of the eye area is prone to wrinkles, even in young people in their twenties. We must pay attention to our own eyes so that we can make our eye skin firmer and more elastic, which looks younger.
There are many ways to care for the eyes, but we need to pay attention to the order when caring for the eye skin so that the eye skin can get the more correct care. Many people will have a lot of misunderstandings when caring for the eye skin, leading to more wrinkles and other problems, so we must learn the correct eye care methods and steps.

The basic steps of eye area care
Nowadays, a large number of people prefer makeup, and eye shadow is an important part of the makeup steps. Care of the skin around the eyes needs to start with makeup removal because makeup removal is a step of cleansing. Makeup removal can help us make the skin around the eyes cleaner and reduce the residual makeup on the skin around the eyes.
After we use makeup remover to remove eye makeup, we need to clean it a second time. The second cleansing is mainly to use cleansing products to cleanse the skin. Cleansing products should choose the one that suits your skin type. The use of this type of cleaning product can help us clean our skin more deeply, and clean up the residual oil and cosmetics in the pores…
After cleaning your skin, you need to use an eye mask to replenish the skin’s moisture, because the skin around the eyes is more sensitive. After putting on makeup, the skin is more prone to dehydration, so making an eye mask for yourself regularly can help us better supplement the nutrition of the skin around the eyes. The principle of using an eye mask is the same as using a facial mask, which is a relatively simple skincare step. The use of an eye mask can help us reduce dark circles and eye lines.
1.Don’t use face cream as an eye cream
Because the skin around the eyes is very thin, only 1/3 to 1/5 of the facial skin, and the eye skin lacks sebaceous glands and sweat glands, so it does not secrete oil. Without natural protection, the eye area skin is prone to dryness. However, many people take care of the eye skin very sloppily. The most common way is to use face cream as an eye cream, thinking that this can play a role in moisturizing care. Taking care of the skin around the eyes is far from simple.
As the eye area and the sebaceous glands are unevenly distributed, one should choose an eye cream that can be quickly absorbed, properly nourished, and preferably can also promote blood circulation. If you don’t make distinctions and use a more oily face cream instead of eye cream, it will add unnecessary burden to the eye skin, and even cause allergies and the formation of soil particles.
2.Apply eye cream correctly
Dip a little eye cream with your ring finger and lightly apply it on the upper and lower eyelids and eye area. (The amount of eye cream should not be too much, the size of two mung beans each time is enough). Apply the eye cream evenly from the corner of the eye to the end of the eye until the end of the eye is lifted. Repeat this action 3-5 times to help tighten the eye skin and prevent sagging. Use your ring finger to apply gently from the inside to the outside to smooth the eye skin and promote blood circulation. Until the eye cream is completely absorbed by the skin. Finally, you can gently press the center of your eyebrows with your fingertips to relax your eyes.
Most people will directly buy eye cream with a roll-on. This type of eye cream will be more convenient to use. We can directly apply the eye cream on eye area and use the roller to massage our eyes to push the eye cream away.
3.Eye massage helps promote blood circulation
In addition to using care products, gentle and gentle massage can promote blood circulation around the eyes, and can also relieve eye fatigue. In addition to natural aging, poor metabolism of the lymphatic circulation, smoking, and staying up all night will affect the blood circulation in the eyes, thereby increasing the deposition of melanin. With the increase of age and frequent eye movements such as blinking, the subcutaneous elastic fibers of the eye skin will also be deformed, making the originally tight elastic fibers aging, weakening the contraction force, and forming wrinkles. Therefore, massage to improve blood circulation is good for tissue metabolism and synthesis.
Eye massage can relieve dark circles and fine lines, but you must pay attention to the method and intensity when you massage. Many people prefer to use their fingers when massaging the skin around their eyes, but finger massage is more likely to cause fine lines. Therefore, when we massage, we should apply essential oils or special eye products, which can reduce the friction of the massage. After the product is used correctly, we can reduce our dark circles and eye lines.
From eye area cleaning to eye area care, we must use the correct method. For all kinds of eye care products, we can choose the right one according to the specific conditions of our eye area. In short, we need to take care of our skin from the inside out. Eyecare, like facial care, is a thing that needs persistence. Girls who love beauty must persist.
