The skin around the eyes is much thinner than the skin on the rest of your face. This skin requires extra care to ward off signs of ageing.
Use an eye cream or gel both at night and in the morning. Apply it only along the orbital bone. (It is the bone directly under the eye). Gently pat it on, being careful not to drag the skin.
While relaxing with a face mask on, close the eyes and cover with cotton pads soaked in rose water, or soothe with 2 slices of fresh cucumber.
Treat your eyes while you have a face mask on. Soak two cotton-wool pads in cold camomile tea and place them over your eyes.
Treat sore eyes caused by exposure to the sun, wind or chlorine with a soothing eye bath. Mix 1-2 tablespoons of rose water with 150ml distilled water. Use this solution to give a bath to your eyes.
Puffiness around your eyes is caused by a build-up of toxins or excess fluids. Press gently along the eyebrow and around the eye socket with your middle finger. This will help reduce any swelling by stimulating the lymphatic system. For a cooling and soothing effect, store an eye cream or gel in the fridge and gently pat it onto the delicate skin around your eyes.
