We Asian have some common eye issues and they're pretty irritating!
1. Dark circles and shadows
Under-eye circles are caused by leaky capillaries, which results in blood poolng under the skin around the eye area. As this area is the thinnest and most delicate, dark under-eye circles become even more apparent.
What you can do: Apply eye cream using your ring fingers in circular motion around the eye contour area to aid circulation.
2. Oily eyelids
Similar to T-zone, eyelids can get shiny over the course of the day too, and this can cause your eyeshadow to crease.
What you can do: Try use an oil-free, water-based eye gel instead of a cream.
3. Eye bags and puffness
Too little water, insufficient rest and too much alcohol can cause your eyes to look puffy. So use an eye cream that promotes drainage and tightens the skin around the eye area.
(This is my biggest enemy!)
What you can do: Wash your face with cold water or put your eye cream in the fridge for an extra-cooling eye treat.
4. Dryness and fine lines
These aren't just by-product of ageing, they are also a result of insufficient sebum-secreting oil glands, which can caused by stress, poor diet, constant late nightsand excessive use of cosmetics.
What you can do: Never tug at skin around your eyes. Instead tap it lightly to promote circulation.
Apart from the above, it's important to massage and relax our eyes and indulge in food which are good for our eyes. Warm hands by rubbing them together and place one palm over each eye to aid relaxation. Eat more greens likc spinach, carrots and corn for eye discomfort reduction!
Have a happy eye day and a great weekend ahead!
