eye care routine for darker skin tones
Prevention is usually the best move when it comes to signs of ageing, so using SPF daily, drinking plenty of water, a healthy diet and plenty of sleep will all help. You also need to take a look at your skin care routine and add in some eye care – whatever your age – for hydration and younger-looking skin.
Keeping the areas around your eyes hydrated is the key to keeping it looking plump, firm and youthful. It’s recommended that you start using an eye cream as early as in your 20s for hydration, but don’t worry if it isn’t currently part of your routine, it’s never too late to start.
We love the Evolve Organic Beauty Hyaluronic Eye Complex for cooling and hydrating the delicate eye area. It comes in a rollerball formula to reduce the appearance of puffiness and fine lines, and is suitable for all skin types. This eye care essential uses hyaluronic acid and active botanical ingredients to refresh and hydrate. It’s great for tired eyes or allergies too!
If you’re serious about taking care of your eyes, check out the Epara Skincare Eye Serum. It’s clinically proven to improve the delicate skin around the eye contour area; lifting, firming and hydrating. It also helps to reduce hyperpigmentation, which can be a problem around the eyes, and fights dark circles. It’s an eye care must-have!
Speaking of dark circles, black and brown skin can be more prone to darker under eye circles as the melanin in skin can make them more noticeable. It can sometimes be due to genetic or just your skin’s natural tone. Lifestyle, age and fluid retention can all affect this area of the eye so take a look at your daily habits to see if they’re causing you problems with your dark circles.
We recommend Nuhanciam Eye Contour Care Cream. It’s a dark circles corrector that’s been formulated especially for the eye area. It’s rich and restorative but also works to reduce puffiness and lighten dark circles for an illuminating boost.
Allergies and sun exposure can all affect the skin around your eyes during summer, so it’s even more important to keep protected. As well as SPF, sunglasses are always a great idea when the sun is out – they stop you squinting in the sunlight (leading to fine lines and wrinkles) and protects the delicate skin around your eyes as well as your eyes themselves.
Layering your eye care and hydration products can really benefit, particularly as you get older and your skin starts to lose its natural hydration. You might find that eye masks help with wrinkles, puffiness and dryness specifically, so take a look at incorporating them into your routine too.
