Eyes are a funny one, aren’t they? You’re always looking into other peoples with very little thought about what yours look like – that is unless you’re an egomaniac and use your unlit phone screen as a mirror.
Anyway, regardless of your self-confidence, eyes tend to be an area of the face that men often complain about but seldom do anything to change. Dark circles, puffiness, large bags, a glazed overlay – these are just some of the issues we face with our eyes on a day to day basis.
So how do we combat them?
Now there are the ‘obvious’ ones such as:
- Avoid smoking
- A diet filled with fruit and veg
- Get eight hours sleep a night
But there’s also a range of products that should live in your bathroom cabinet or gym bag in order to combat fatigued eyes.
Anti-Ageing Skin Gel
As soon as we cross the threshold of 25, or if you’re unlucky 23, we want to avoid the ‘W’ word at all costs.
Of course, I’m talking about Wrinkles. Now, eventually you’re just going to have to accept you’re going to adopt wrinkles and if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to don them similar to the likes of David squared (Beckham and Gandy).
However, you can slow down the process if equipped with the correct tools. Try this anti-ageing skin gel, which is enriched with Retinol (Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Hyaluronic Acid) – all very good for the skin. What’s more – these ingredients help to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Anti-Ageing Skin Serum
As aforementioned above, believe it or not, you’re getting older chap, whether you like it or not. The wear and tear of everyday life can make even the most youthful man look like their great aunt Mildred before too long. Cue the anti-ageing skin serum. It softens and soothes the skin before applying a moisturiser, and works instantly activating the skin’s natural abilities to repair old tissues and dead skin cells.
I can’t guarantee you eternal life but what I will say is if you look after your skin, and especially your eyes, your youth will certainly stay with you for longer.
As someone wise once told me, imagine your skin like a grape – when it loses water it starts to shrink and look like a raisin (i.e. wrinkles start to appear). Many believe that you can’t use your skin moisturiser for your eyes, but the truth is you can, as long as it doesn’t irritate them.
Top tip: Apply all of the above products with your pinkie so that you put less pressure on your eyes, as the skin beneath them is extremely sensitive.
