They are the hallmark of beauty and the windows to our soul. Eyes captivate and express emotion. They welcome and they show scorn. Universally, people are attracted to eyes and the beauty industry knows this.
There is no shortage of cosmetic product alternatives made to enhance the look and structure of your eyes and there are plenty of surgical options that can help with this as well. Entire salons are now dedicated to threading eyebrows to make them more shapely and to adding lash extensions to give you more pop. There are endless options and colors of mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow that you can buy in any cosmetics aisle in any store – more when you shop for higher end, more luxurious, products. Each claims to do more with better ingredients and a more sophisticated application process than the last. You can even have “makeup” applied as a permanent tattoo and new eyelashes implanted.
But beneath all of this are the pair of eyes that each of us was born with, ringed with the lashes we naturally have, and framed by our own eyebrows. This is where our beauty starts and one of the best ways to enhance it is by maintaining good care of the eye area. After all, nothing is less becoming than tired looking, swollen, or red eyes.
Good Eye Care
Good eye care, like good skin care, requires an effort on your part to be healthy. All the same fundamentals come into play. You need sufficient sleep. You need a good diet. You need protection from the sun. You need good eye and eyelid hygiene. And you need products that will help to nourish and revitalize the skin around your eyes.
Sleeping no less than 7 hours each night gives your eyes a chance to rest and rejuvenate themselves. When your eyes are closed and when you are sleeping they are lubricated internally by basal tears. These tears keep everything moist on the inside and help your eyes to feel fresh when you wake up. You can encourage them to stay refreshed during the day by making sure that you blink and take breaks from screens and books. Every time you blink your eyes produce those same tears. Additionally, sleeping enough is the best way to keep your eyes from becoming puffy and having dark circles or lines.
Diet and hydration are just as important for your your eye health and beauty. If you have a poor diet, if you smoke, if you drink too much alcohol, or if you do not drink enough water it will show and your eyes will become sallow instead of being bright and white. In particular beta carotene is important for your eyes.
The skin around your eyes is the most delicate skin on your face. Protecting it from the sun is especially important. This means applying full spectrum sunscreen and wearing protective sunglasses and large brimmed hats to keep the UVB and UVA rays from causing damage. The same goes for your eyes themselves – the sun can cause cataracts which can permanently impact your vision.
Keeping your eyes and eyelids clean is one of the best gifts you can give to your eyes. Be conscientious to clean makeup and dirt from your eye area so that it doesn’t build up and instigate a bacterial infection that can lead to an unsightly eye issue. Also make sure that you are cleaning your lids and lid margins to keep them from accumulating naturally occurring oils which can trap contaminants. A good facial cleanser that is safe for the eye area can help with this.
Skincare for Your Eye Area
Perhaps the most important part of keeping your eyes beautiful, however, is related to your skincare. MDSUN has you completely covered in this department with both a gel and a cream that are specifically designed for the eye area.
MDSUN Intensive Eye Gel sells for $115. The product addresses delicate skin concerns with a unique blend of anti-aging, brightening, and hydrating ingredients, leaving the skin more firm, moisturized, and radiant. Infused with sodium hyaluronate, coenzyme q10 and vitamin E, the gel’s formula helps to support natural collagen and elastin, softens expression lines and wrinkles, and restores suppleness and youthfulness. Anti-fatigue agents vitamins C and K reduce under-eye puffiness and dark circles significantly so that the skin looks brighter and well-rested. Precious algae and oat extracts further protect the skin against aging and environmental damage.
MDSUN Med-Eye Complex Cream sells for $210. It is infused with over a dozen peptides, ceramides, human fibroblast conditioned media (stem cells), human adipose stem cells, and vitamins A and E.
