If you are wearing your mask out in public (which I hope you are) you may be feeling like your eyes need a little more attention. So the next few weeks are going to be all about eyes–from keeping the skin around them healthy to lids, lashes, and liners.

No amount of make-up can make up for poor skin care, so let’s start there. The skin around your eyes deserves some special attention. It is the most delicate skin on your face. If you were to think of your facial skin like typing paper, the skin around your eyes would be more like tissue paper. Because your skin is so delicate and your eyes are so expressive, this also means it is usually the first place people start to age.

Start with a healthy lifestyle

As always one of the best things you can do for your skin is to take care of it from the inside out. Strive for a well-balanced diet, plenty of water, and a regular sleep schedule. We all live in the real world, with various demands on our time, but do your best.

Make sure you are also protecting your eyes from the sun with broad-brimmed hats and uva/uvb blocking sun glasses.

How get the most impact from your eye products

  • Apply an eye cream to clean skin twice daily to keep the area hydrated for the whole day.
    • Remember that if you are using a new product it may take several weeks to see the full impact. Be patient and focus on a good routine.
  • Use your ring finger to gently pat eye products into your skin. This will help prevent further damage to the delicate skin around your eyes from tugging or pulling the skin.
  • Use a primer before applying make-up around your eyes. Apply gently with a clean concealer bush or your ring finger.
  • If under-eye concealer is needed, look for a yellowish concealer to counteract purplish dark circles
  • Remove your eye make-up with a gentle oil-free cleanser every night before bed.
  • Treat your eyes to an eye mask 1-3x a week
