When you look at someone you look at his or her eyes first, right?
If our eyes are shining and bright and the skin around is nourished, that will be where there focus will stay. We’ve all heard this common metaphor, the eyes are the windows to the soul, so we can never have too much help in this in this area. As you study/learn about facial expressions, we can tell so very much from the eyes, forehead and around the mouth as to the person’s health or concerns they may be experiencing.
So we ask, where do we start with a natural and anti-aging treatment?
Sometimes, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Fortunately, researchers recently released a couple of new studies that offer some guidance & a few minor tweaks to our daily habits will help us see a difference, as it’s not just all about the best eye cream.
Our skin contains sebaceous glands, which secrete oil to lubricate the skin and help protect it. However, our sebaceous glands are not evenly distributed across our faces. Studies found that wrinkles tend to be deeper in areas with fewer sebaceous glands, particularly the skin around the eyes.
From a number of selected Japanese people from ages 20 to 90, the researchers determined that the more sebaceous glands present in the forehead, the shallower the wrinkles in that area. The area just outside the corner of the eye doesn’t have these glands, so this may be why wrinkles deepen faster there. The researchers do caution us that because their research was only on Japanese people results may be different for others.
However, their work does raise an important reminder: the skin around the eyes is delicate, and it needs special attention. Left untreated, it often wrinkles faster and more deeply than the rest of our skin. As the first study indicated, this can cause us to look older.
This is where changes to our daily habits come into play to help keep the skin around our eyes looking young.
- Get plenty of sleep – prioritize this first step. Use a good pillowcase and regularly change to stop allergies. The body & the mind needs rest daily and making sure you sleep well will have a major effect.
- Keep hydrated, drink lots of water so as to flush toxins out of the body and keep the skin elastic & healthy.
- Cut out sugar and only have sea salt in your diet & see the difference.
