Eye cream is NOT for old ladies
Most people associate eye cream with getting old, but the facts are that if you don’t use it when you are young and before the wrinkles form… it isn’t going to do much when you start to think that you actually need it. Eye cream is specifically formulated to penetrate the delicate skin around the eye area, so moisturiser is not the same thing. Even if it’s very light weight, including an eye specific cream into your routine now will impact the severity of fine lines later.
Apply it gently and dab it, rather than rub it into the eye area, any leftover on your fingers can be applied to your lip area. The skin on your lips is the same as around your eyes and taking care of this area will help to reduce wrinkles in your lip line as you age. Finally, seal all of that goodness in with your favourite Breeze Balm.
Hydration is key
Take care of your skin from the inside out. If your skin is not getting enough water, the lack of hydration can turn your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and elasticity and is more prone to wrinkles. So drink more water. Drinking at least 8 glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins and increase elasticity. It will also help you to function with the clear mind as well as clear skin.
Sunscreen – If you do nothing else… wear sunscreen.
UV damage is the leading cause of premature aging and causes more harm than all of the other beauty “no no’s” combined. Wrinkles, pigmentation, sun spots, reduced skin elasticity, the degradation of skin texture, and many other signs of skin aging can all be linked to sun damage.
Find yourself a lightweight, high UV protection sunscreen (30+ minimum) and make it a part of your morning ritual. Cleanse – Eye Cream - Moisturise – Sunscreen – Makeup – Breeze Balm
