Are you eyes dry, puffy or wrinkled? Here’s our pick of the top beauty products to help keep your eyes fresh and pretty all year round.
Even eyes aren’t immune to winter’s drying effects. The outer layer of the eye produces oils to curb moisture evaporation from the middle layer. Strong winds and low humidity levels brought on by artificial heating hinder the production of these oils.
To provide temporary relief, consult a physician about using preservative-free artificial tears. Pay heed to the recommended dosage – artificial tears are intended to stimulate the production of natural tears, not replace them entirely!
Dark circles and puffiness
Take care when tending to the thin skin around your eyes. Tiredness and dehydration prompts blood cells to migrate to the surface, creating the appearance of dark circles.
This delicate area also has fewer oil glands, necessitating a need for eye creams to encourage oil production. Opt for formulas that contain vitamins A, C and K. Vitamin A controls the production of melanin, reducing the appearance of dark circles, while vitamins C and K act as antioxidants, fighting puffiness and dehydration.
Dr Lanzer explains another product which is available at Dr Lanzer’s clinic is Eye Tone Lightweight eye cream which aids diminishing appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines. By applying a small amount to lower & upper lid, as well as to the above brow will help decrease the signs of this. The main two ingredients here of this cream is squalene and betaglucan.
