Eyes and lips are the most expressive areas on our faces, so giving them the care and nourishment they need is an important part of your skincare ritual.
The muscles around the eyes and mouth are some of the most used in the human body, which can cause fine lines to develop over time. It’s essential that you use products specifically formulated to treat this extremely delicate tissue. Check out the following beauty articles for tips on how to reduce fine lines around your eyes and lips today!
Are you using eye and lip care products in your daily skincare ritual? As the most expressive features on our face, the eyes and lips are the areas most likely to show signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Often we’ll only start using eye creams or lip care once we start to see fine lines appear, but preventative use can be effective in supporting the hydration and elasticity of these delicate areas. You might be wondering what an eye cream does that a regular moisturizer couldn’t do, it’s all down to the texture of the skin around the eye—it’s thinner, therefore needs a targeted product. Eye cream formulations tend to be lighter so as not to clog pores, and they’re more concentrated with gentle actives to solve for key concerns in that area.
Whether eye serums or creams, it’s all about finding one for your specific concerns—anti-aging, lifting, protection against damaging environmental stressors, or depuffing and dark circles. Always make sure to use your ring finger to lightly tap on your eye cream—don’t drag or pull the skin. When it comes to lip care, a simple lip balm or conditioning can make all the difference, especially for chapped lips or dry skin. Pop on a lip balm at night to let it work its magic while you sleep, then in the day, wear a lip conditioner as a base and top with color. Suncare is vital for keeping both eyes and lips protected from aging sun damage, so make sure you’re applying your suncare gently to those areas.
