The Art of Eye Skin Care

What do your eyes say about you? You do know they talk, don't you?

Eye skin care matters because beauty is seen in the eyes, so treat your eyes with extra gentleness. The skin around this area is different from anywhere else on the body. It lacks sweat glands and oil glands.

This makes the tissue around the eyes very delicate and prone to damage if it isn't well cared for. Here are some things you can do to bring out the best in your "windows of the soul".

First, choose your skin care products carefully. The eye area is sensitive and it is less likely to be irritated if you use products that are mild. The fewer and more natural the ingredients, the better.

If you're not a smoker, you can skip the next paragraph. If you do smoke, and eye skin care matters to you, know this: you're not doing your eyes a favor. Nicotine slows down the production of collagen (the substance that makes skin elastic and firm). So if you really want the area around your eyes to stay wrinkle-free for longer, you know what to do. Give up smoking.

There are a couple of other things you can do to make your eyes sparkle. Get enough sleep. But you already knew that, right?

Here's another thing you can do. Drink a glass of water before going to bed and again when you wake up in the morning. That's not so hard, is it? The water will help to remove the toxins that collect around the eyelids after you have been sleeping for hours.

Cleanse your eye area every day. If you use make up, remove all traces of it from the eyes with cotton wool or a cotton bud soaked in a cleanser. But don't remove make up if you need to reapply it straight away.

If possible, use products that are specially formulated for eye skin care. So, instead of using an ordinary moisturizer, for example, use an eye gel or eye cream. To apply products to the eye area, use your ring finger because this is the weakest finger and you do need a light touch. No pulling or tugging because the eye area is sensitive.

And if you are worried about dark circles or puffiness, don't despair. The NouriFusion Eye Gel can help solve these problems. It contains cucumber extract which is beneficial to the skin.

This vitamin-enriched gel provides light moisturization and helps wake your eyes up in the morning. If you travel a lot or stay up late and you want to avoid dark rings or puffiness under the eyes, try the NouriFusion eye gel.

Because the skin around the eyes lacks oil, it is prone to wrinkling. So if you're concerned about wrinkles, it's a good idea to use an eye cream at night as these tend to be richer than gels. The NouriFusion Eye Cream provides the eye area with all of the vitamins and nutrients it needs and gives it a moisture boost.

Make some time for eye skin care because your eyes say a lot about you.
