Treating your eyes 日常眼部護理小技巧

The skin around the eyes is much thinner than the rest of the face which is why using an eye cream is important. If a cream is too thick, it can cause the area to become puffy. We all have different concerns when it comes to the eyes so here’s a few tips on how to treat the three most common ones.

Bags, puffiness and dark circles

The Cause
Bags, puffiness and dark circles are most commonly caused by poor circulation around the eye area. When we’re tired or stressed, sympathetic nerves are activated which constrict the blood vessels. This slows down blood circulation causing it to build up underneath the eyes and make the skin appear dark.

Eye Cream 
Ingredients that stimulate micro-circulation are essential for helping to improve the problem long term such as Azarole bud or ingredients containing caffeine.

Light pigments or optical diffusers are also great to reduce the appearance of dark circles and bags as a short term fix. These ingredients reflect light away from the dark shadowy area making the skin around the eye appear brighter, healthier and more luminous.

Tip
Keep a spoon in the freezer with cling film wrapped around it. When your eye area flares up, take it out, unwrap the cling film and place the spoon on the eye area. This is great for when you wake up with puffy eyes.

這個部位的肌膚護理絕對不能忽視!

眼睛周圍的皮膚比其他臉部的皮膚要薄得多,所以在日常臉部護理時使用眼霜也是缺一不可的護膚步驟。可是你是否又知道呢,眼霜並不是塗得越厚越好。相反,如果眼霜塗得太厚反而會導致眼睛區域變得浮腫。對於眼部肌膚,每個人都有不同的煩惱,所以我們將會針對三個最常見的眼部問題給一些小貼士,幫助你擁有完美眼部肌膚。

眼袋、浮腫和黑眼圈

形成原因

出現眼袋、浮腫和黑眼圈最常見的原因是眼部周圍血液循環不良。當我們感到疲倦或壓力時交感神經會被激活,從而收縮血管,減慢血液循環,導致血液在眼部下方積聚,令眼部出現眼袋、浮腫和黑眼圈。

選購眼霜

選購含有刺激微循環成分(例如南歐山楂果花蕾或含有咖啡因成分)的眼霜對改善上述問題至關重要。

含有淺色顏料或光學擴散器的眼霜也可以短時間修復眼部肌膚,減少黑眼圈和眼袋的出現。這些成分可以將光線從暗淡肌膚區域反射出去,使使眼睛周圍的皮膚看起來更明亮、更健康。

護膚貼士

用保鮮膜將勺子包裹並放入冰箱。當您的眼部肌膚浮腫時,將勺子取出並放在浮腫部位。這對您剛起來水腫的眼睛消腫特別有效。
