Taking Care of the Skin around the Eyes

The skin around the eyes is remarkably delicate and the strain in the eyes has a direct impact on the skin and even though your eyes, if are haggard, do not show, then the skin around them has all the tell tale signs. This is why under all stressful conditions where an individual has not been able to sleep or eat properly, the exhaustion of the eyes shows in the form of puffiness and dark circles in the skin around it.

The skin around the eyes is thinner in comparison with other parts of the body. It is delicate and has fewer oil glands. This is why it can get dehydrated easily and the effect of the wind, the sun and the weather shows first here. This skin has the capacity to make you look more beautiful and when it is dark, considerably less attractive.

Also, the dark skin around the eyes takes the attention off the eyes and as a result, even though you might have attractive eyes, the dark skin will cast a shadow on its beauty. Therefore it becomes important that it is treated better and more than the rest of the body.

There are many ways, mainly external aid and diet that are important in maintaining the skin round the eyes. To start off with, let us take into account what you need to eat to enrich your skin with the necessary nutrients to help it be healthy and smooth. Eat fruits rich in Vitamin C as this vitamin is helpful in keeping the skin healthy.

Ensure that you have a lot of water. At least 8 to 10 glasses a day is recommended so that the skin remains hydrated for a longer time. Water in the skin helps the generation and proper growth of new skin cells. Therefore it remains healthy as well.

Avoid salty food. The salt in the water can cause retention instead of it being absorbed by the skin. This directly results in the skin area around the eyes getting dried because the salty food has retained certain portion of water. Ensure that moisturizer is used to keep the skin hydrated.
