The skin under your eyes is one of your face's most delicate and sensitive areas. The skin under and above your eyes is only 1/9 the thickness of the rest of your face. This largely explains why our eyes are often the first to show signs of aging. Puffiness, fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes are readily noticeable and can give an inaccurate and unfortunate portrayal of your age. Eye skin care is essential all year long but especially in the summer. The summer heat and sunshine cause damage from UV rays, pollution and harsh weather conditions. Additionally, the skin around our eyes doesn't have as many oil glands as other areas, which can lead to dryness and dehydration.
Combatting Summertime Eye Skin Damage
It's essential to incorporate a few critical steps into your skincare routine to combat these issues.
Get Enough Sleep
Getting enough sleep is essential to rejuvenate the skin under your eyes. Lack of sleep can cause dark circles and puffiness to appear and make fine lines more noticeable. Aim to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night and establish a consistent sleep schedule.
First and foremost, make sure you use a gentle cleanser that won't strip the skin of its natural oils. SkinMedica AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser improves the appearance of skin texture, tone and smoothness while thoroughly cleansing and gently exfoliating delicate under-eye skin. You should also avoid using hot water on your face, which can further dehydrate the skin.
Always remember to protect your skin from the sun, especially in summer. Wear sunglasses to shield your eyes from harmful UV rays, and apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day. Elta MD® UV Elements Clear SPF 46 is ideal summertime protection for the delicate skin underneath your eyes and all over your face. Use with or without makeup for carefree days in the sun or your daily business routine.
