The skin found around our eyes is extremely telling. Many people are willing to admit while the body looks young and the skin overall is healthy and beautiful there is something telling about this area of the body.

Therefore, it’s extremely important we keep this particular area of skin looking as wonderful and healthy as possible for as long as possible.

There are several factors affecting this area. There are more than a few things to do which reduce the damage or injury and help improve the health of this area.


The skin on this part of the face is extraordinarily sensitive. It is sensitive to a multitude of factors. Unlike other skin on our body it is never protected from weather. The sun, wind, cold and other extreme weather conditions all affect how good or how bad it looks. Make certain to take good care of it and do some things to counteract the negative effects of weather.

Use sunblock and moisture always. Whether the temperature is seventy degrees or seven degrees make certain to apply sunblock and moisturizers.

Makeup for the eyes will wreak havoc with this hypersensitive skin. Wearing the right make up will make a difference. Products which are hypo allergenic are usually the gentlest and provide the least amount of wear and tear or damage to this area. Remove all make up on the face and especially around eyes every day to see a benefit.

Washing the face every day, twice per day is ideal. Use gentle motions. Small circular motions are ideal. Cleaning it daily removes any bacteria that makes it prone to blackouts and acne. Acne and blackouts are harmful and will hurt facial skin. Small circular motions increase circulation and oxygen to the skin making eyes look more youthful and rested.

      that is a good one rick. they arent sure if that is from the facial muscles that are moving when you smoke. the same muscles move over and over the same way-or from the toxins from the smoke to this sensitive area.

      thank you for your comment
