The process of aging is normal; it’s a gradual deceleration of skin’s metabolism that develops slowly over the years. The result of this procedure is that skin becomes thinner and drier, while its resistance to the ravages of time is reduced. First signs of aging appear timidly around the age of 25 to 30 and, as the years go by, increase and “deepen”. However, in addition to normal wear and tear of time, our skin is also affected by other factors, such as solar radiation, lifestyle, diet and stress.
Eye contour is a particular case, since the skin in that area is much thinner and more sensitive, making it easier to “suffer”. That’s the reason why first wrinkles usually appear around the eyes. The good news is that by following a few simple daily steps, it’s attainable to impede the appearance of wrinkles, while maintaining a more youthful and relaxed look. Pay attention to the following tips:
Eye cream: Proper and frequent face hydration is undoubtedly the most important step in maintaining a good skin health. For this reason, choose MACROVITA Complete Formula Eye Cream with rice, calendula & coenzyme Q10. Preserves the biological balance of cells, moisturizes, nourishes and helps to decongest and revitalize the eye contour area. Reduces wrinkles and puffiness, improves elasticity, enhances and protects skin complexion. Apply daily, morning and/or evening, onto clean skin.
Eye mask: In addition to the daily use of eye cream, don’t forget to apply an eye mask 1 to 2 times a week. Try the quick and easy, homemade mask for dark circles and puffiness. All you need is 1 potato, 1 cucumber, 1 tsp. MACROVITA Castor Oil and 1 tsp. MACROVITA Rice Oil. First, peel off the potato as well as the cucumber and mash them in a blender or grate them. Put the mashed vegetables along with the oils in a bowl and mix well, until the mixture becomes uniform. Take sufficient quantity and apply on your lower eyelids. Leave on for 15′ and then rinse off with lukewarm to cold water.
Avoiding overexposure to sunlight: Photoaging is one of the most important factors contributing to the appearance or worsening of eye wrinkles, as ultraviolet radiation interferes with collagen production, increases the appearance of free radicals that cause oxidation and accelerates skin aging. Thus, the use of a sunscreen – all year round – is especially important.
“Healthy” lifestyle: Aging is not the only reason why wrinkles appear. They often reflect the internal state of the body. “Poor” diet accelerates skin’s aging process, while on the contrary a diet rich in vitamin C, fatty acids and water is the ideal ally for a healthy skin. In addition, smoking, lack of sleep, stress, etc., can greatly affect the health as well as the appearance of our skin, making it look dull and “aged”. Therefore, reduce smoking, ensure 7 to 8 hours of daily sleep and eliminate stress from your life.
Follow the above tips and offer to yourself a relaxed and youthful look!
