When the eye area is dehydrated, dark circles are marked, under-eye puffiness become swollen, and wrinkles appear. In fact, this face area is very delicate, so to regain or maintain a radiant look it is necessary to take care of it.
What are the reasons for this dehydration?
The area around the eyes is very thin and contains few sebaceous glands which ensure the production of sebum on the surface of our skin, its hydration and retain moisture. Therefore, this area dries out more easily. In addition, it is very exposed to the external environment aggression such as pollution, UV rays, etc.
Consequently, if we do not pay particular attention to the eye contour, it becomes dehydrated, skin becomes slack and signs of fatigue appear.
Actions that can accentuate this phenomenon
Spending too much time on screens. Indeed, we blink more in front of a screen than normally, which makes the skin work and in the long term leads to dehydration.
Not having a restful night’s sleep, because it does not enable the skin to regenerate properly.
Not drinking enough water. Monitor your water consumption and make sure you drink enough to hydrate your body as well as your skin.
Be careful with concealers. They can be a great help, but some tend to dry out the skin. To avoid this, use make-up adapted to your skin’s needs. In addition, before using it, apply a base that will form a protective film.
