7 Tips For Ageless Eyes, No Surgery Required

Your eyes are your windows to the world. They can also make you look younger or older, depending on how you treat them. Want your eyes to glow as if you were 10 years younger? It’s not as hard as you might think.

7 Tips For Ageless Eyes, No Surgery Required

1.Wear sunglasses. The combination of squinting your eyes and damaging UVA/UVB rays can speed up aging around the eye area. When you buy sunglasses make sure they cover the entire eye area. 2. Wear sunscreen around the eyes. We often forget to apply sunscreen around the eye. Using a sunscreen that has broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, carefully apply around the eye, being careful not to get it in the eye. You may also want to consider a sweat proof sunscreen. 3. Choose a natural topical cream to lighten dark circles under eyes. Choose a natural topical cream with anti-inflammatory ingredients like witch hazel, cucumber extract, and niacinamide. In addition, treat under eye circles by getting enough sleep and applying cucumber or cooled tea bags to your eyes. 4. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Hydrated skin ages better and makes your skin appear more youthful than dry skin which highlights wrinkles. Drink 8 or more glasses of water per day to stay hydrated. 5. Don’t use mascara on your bottom lashes. Mascara on your top lashes can do wonders when it comes to opening up your eyes and making them look bigger. But adding mascara to your bottom lashes actually makes crow’s feet and wrinkles more obvious. 6. Stay away from red and deep purple makeup. Red and deep purple makeup brings out undertones in your eyes, making them look tired. Instead, choose more neutral, earthy tones. 7. Eat more iron. In addition to a lack of sleep, an iron deficiency can make your under eye circles look darker. Sara Novak is a Natural Health Care Expert for Zax Health. Follow her on Twitter at @sarafnovak.
