9 Simple Clear Skin Tips for Radiant Skin

9 Simple Clear Skin Tips for Radiant Skin

Check out these 9 clear skin tips for radiant skin. If you’ve made it through the teenage years and are still experience acne and breakouts, these steps will help you find the healthy, glowing skin you’ve always wanted!

My teenage years were a constant battle with acne. My dream was that was that once I grew past that stage I would have clear, perfect, flawless skin. Did that happen for you? Yea…me neither.

Back then I treated my acne with Proactiv – basically by using very harsh chemicals and something else that would bleach the crap out of my bathroom towels. Who knows what was in that stuff!

Turns out when we grow up and have things like mortgages, kids, and stress – our skin reflects all of that. Hormones play a huge role in our skin. But what we eat and what’s going on in our gut also plays a role, too.

Birth control pills are effective in what they are intended to do, but geez they can wreak havoc on other areas of our bodies, especially as we get a little older. Check out the side effects here. Decreased libido and eye changes, anyone? Initially birth control helped clear up my skin, but what other damage have they done since those early years?

If you are an adult looking for clear skin tips, you are in the right spot. There are so many simple ways we can take care of our skin!

Here are my first five tips for radiant skin, “Radiant Skin: 5 Unique Ways to Improve Your Skin’s Appearance.

I’m happy to share 9 more clear skin tips – some of these you may not have considered!

Clear Skin Tips #1: Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Ugh, I admit I hate doing this! But, when I think about how much I use my makeup brushes, I make a point to clean them once a week. It’s easy if you schedule a weekly time to do it. Like, every Saturday morning. Just clean your makeup brushes! You’ll be so happy you did.

Here are some reasons you need to always clean your makeup brushes from Blank Canvas Cosmetics.

Acne prevention

Whenever you use your makeup brushes, they are collecting everything that is on your face — namely, oil, dead skin cells, dust, and anything else clinging to your skin. This is a recipe for disaster (or rather, acne). Every time you use a dirty brush, you are wiping this disgusting combination all over your face, clogging your pores as a result.

Better color application

Dirty makeup brushes are also ineffective for applying color precisely. With old makeup caked on your brushes, you are unable to get the look you’re going for, whether that is naturally blended contour or a dramatic eyeshadow.

Maintain soft brushes

Dirty brushes become more abrasive and dry as they become more caked with product and debris from your face. In turn, this irritates your skin. Cleaning your brushes regularly keeps them soft enough to not cause damage to your face.

Avoid germs

Dirty makeup brushes are also a breeding ground for bacteria. Not only is this terrible for your face, it also is bad for your makeup products. Transferring all this bacteria to your products taints them, and what should have lasted you a year will spoil within months.

Longer lasting brushes

When you clean your Blank Canvas makeup brushes regularly, you are preserving them. The more frequently you clean them, the longer your investment will last.

Clear Skin Tips #2: Clean Your Phone

You’ve probably heard that phones are dirtier than a toilet seat. Imagine putting a nasty toilet seat on your face when you use your cell phone! Ugh.

Imagine all the places you take your phone. My kids are constantly using my phone and everyone knows that kids equal germs. It’s easy to think about cleaning it when my phone is sticky from my kids using it, but we really need to clean our phones more often.

You should clean with caution because cell phones and moisture don’t mix. Just wiping down with a microfiber cloth is great, but doesn’t always get all the bacteria off the phone.

Here are some tips from Apple on how to clean Apple products. You can find wipes that are specifically for cleaning cell phones on Amazon or make your own mix using rubbing alcohol and water. Just proceed with caution as too much water can definitely hurt your phone.

Clear Skin Tips #3: Eat Foods For Clear Skin

I touched on this in my Radiant Skin article, but it’s worth repeating. Your skin reflects your diet! If you eat a healthy, balanced diet your skin will show it. If you eat a lot processed foods, sugar, dairy, gluten and more common allergens like that, you’re skin and gut will reflect that as well – and not in a good way.

Your skin and body craves food that are good for you and digest easily. We teach all this through nutrition coaching in the 30-day healthy living challenge. Find out more about that here. 

A couple of quick changes to help you do that:

  • Replace your breakfast with a balanced protein shake – here is an easy recipe. Be sure to add lots of leafy greens, vegan protein, and fiber. It will keep you full and help improve your skin.
  • Fill half your plate at lunch and dinner with vegetables. You’ll get more nutrients and stay full, too. Add lean protein, healthy fats and carbs and you’ll have a perfectly well-balanced meal.

Clear Skin Tips #4: Check Your Gut Health

We know there is a brain-gut connection, but what about the gut-skin connection? If you have eaten a diet based on processed foods, fast foods, and avoided fruits and vegetables, then you may need to check your gut.

Your gut can hold 5-25 pounds of waste. Yeah, that means it’s not making it through your digestive system and just hanging around causing damage to your skin, your brain, basically your entire system.

So, clean it out! It’s easy in the 30-day healthy living jumpstart or even the 7-day body cleanse. Basically, we recommend products that are formulated to support your elimination organs and move that waste to its final destination. The toilet…

The great thing is that the Body Cleanse, Detox Tea, and Digestion Plus that we recommend are gentle. For me it works overnight for a positive experience in the morning if you know what I’m saying.

You’ll feel a difference immediately after using these products. I hate saying ‘detox’ because that word has negative connotations, but sometimes your body needs a gut reboot.

Your skin, brain, and entire system will appreciate the work you do for it. Plus, when you focus your diet on foods that are easier to digest, you will reduce the need for a reboot in the future.

Clear Skin Tips #5: Cleanse and Moisturize

No matter if you have oily, dry, or combination skin you need to cleanse and moisturize twice daily.

That can be hard sometimes! Especially at night, we you definitely need to focus on those two steps. At night, you need to remove the day from your face – all the oils, makeup, dirt, etc. that accumulates during the needs to be washed off.

I recommend shortening your routine rather than skipping.  It’s easy with Dissolve the Day Cleansing Clothes from Arbonne. I love these because they are eco-friendly and compostable.

Be sure to use a specific moisturizer for night time. While your sleep, your body is busy rejuvenating skin cells and replenishing anything you lost during the day. When you use a moisturizer specifically for night time, that helps your body give you the radiant, clear skin you want.

Arbonne offers a special value pack with all the skincare products you’ll need for 6 months! That includes night time repair cream and a specific moisturizer for day time.

Clear Skin Tips #6: Shower After Working Out

While it’s important to cleanse and moisturize twice daily, it’s also especially important to shower after you work out. The sooner the better!

Take a shower not just because of body odor, but especially if you have acne-prone skin. The sweat you’ve accumulated during your workout could clog your pores with dirt and oil

If the opportunity to cleanse sweat from your skin presents itself, David E. Bank, founder of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, is on the side of washing so that your pores do not become clogged with dirt and oil.

“There is no precise time that it takes for the sweat to block the pores,” says Bank. “The sooner you can shower, the better. Showering after exercise, especially if you sweat excessively, should be as essential to your routine as your workout for several reasons. The first is your hygiene: No one wants to smell you or your workout on you! Also, if sweat builds up on your skin, it will clog your pores, not allowing your skin to breathe. And if you have a cut or skin abrasion, sweat can get trapped in there and can cause an infection.”

Clear Skin Tips #7: Find the Perfect Shower Temp

I love a good, long hot shower. But they are so bad for my skin and my hair! It turns out taking a cold shower may be bad for your skin as well.

This is what one dermatologist has to say:

To get the right temperature for clear skin, you have to play Goldilocks. “Cold water tightens the skin’s pores, which doesn’t allow the natural secretion of sebum and acne-causing bacteria,” says Neil Sadick, MD, of Sadick Dermatology. “Whereas hot water opens pores and stimulates excess sebum production that leaves it prone to further irritation.” He claims the best strategy is to use lukewarm water in the shower.

Clear Skin Tips #8: Drink More Water

This one has to be said. Drink more water! Drink half your body weight in ounces. If you focus on drinking more water during the day with a goal in mind, it’s actually easier than you think.

Your body craves water. It not only needs it to survive, it needs to function optimally. Find a fun water bottle that will help you meet your goals!

Clear Skin Tips #9: Get More Sleep

This one isn’t easy for parents. In a recent article, I talked about if you can’t get more sleep, get better sleep! I also include some product recommendations to help you achieve that.

It’s also recommended to sleep on your back.

“When you sleep on your belly, the side of your face resting on your pillow is squished for hours at a time. By constantly squishing your face each night into your pillow, you are causing creasing which can eventually turn into wrinkles. (Notice sleep lines each morning?)

Try falling asleep on your back. If you find it hard to stay that way, put a pillow under your knees, which will help you stay in place and not roll over onto your stomach.

Can’t imagine not sleeping on your belly? Consider investing in a specially shaped pillow that allows you to sleep on your stomach while protecting your skin from wrinkles.”

I hope these clear skin tips help you find the radiant, glowing skin you are searching for!

The Best Organic Skin Care Company – You’ll Be Shocked!

The Best Organic Skin Care Company – You’ll Be Shocked!

Searching for the best organic skin care? You’ve found it! Read more about why I love this company and their commitment to products that are certified organic and cruelty-free.

I’m so excited to share the BEST organic skin care that is on the market today. I recently recorded an unboxing video of the Special Value Pack – take a look!

Here’s a little bit more information on the company that has been chosen as the best organic skin care company.

Do you know what ingredients are in the skin care products you are using? Any company can use organic ingredients, but it’s important to understand the company’s mission behind the product safety and purity testing. What about animal testing?!  Just one Google search for how companies test products on animals and you will never support those companies again. Don’t do this unless you have a strong stomach!

Why Should You Consider Using The Best Organic Skin Care?

You may not think about this, but everything you put on your skin ends up in your body. Just think about birth control patches that are supposed to work the same way and ingested pill works. Hmm…

So, are you thinking about the importance of what you put on your skin? You definitely should, but it can be daunting to scrutinize every little thing you use.

So, my suggestion – simply find a company that uses the best organic skin care with all natural, botanical-based ingredients. When you trust the company, their mission, and product testing procedures – you can use everything they produce with no issues.

When it comes to skin care, the best advice I can give you is to start early! Your body starts losing collagen and elasticity as early as 25.

I am well over 25 and have just started using the best organic skin care. It’s not too late to start, just start today! And continue using this skin care consistently.

In the long run, it will be less expensive to start early than to have ‘fix’ problems later on in life.

Skin Care Tips

Take a look at another post about how to achieve Radiant Skin at Any Age. Here are some additional tips to add to your skin care routine that will help you with healthy aging:

  • Stay away from harsh cleansers that can cause over-drying of the skin. One of the skin’s core needs is ample hydration, so it’s important to choose a cleanser that is gentle yet effective so that you don’t strip away essential moisture, resulting in dead skin cell buildup.
  • Use products that are appropriate for your skin type and needs. Your skin changes throughout your life stages, so it’s important to understand the best way to care for it at each point in time. For most, this is the time to transition your skincare regimen to achieve the best results. This usually includes managing oil production, clearing clogged pores and blackheads, and preventing breakouts — all while keeping the skin balanced and hydrated.
  • Protect your skin every day with a broad spectrum SPF product. Sun exposure, even through the windows of your car, home or office can potentially cause a considerable amount of damage to your skin and you might not even realize it. It’s important to choose a product that doesn’t feel greasy or clog pores so that you’ll be comfortable wearing it day in and day out. A hydrating, non-comedogenic product with broad-spectrum protection is one of the best choices to help slow the signs of aging, such as wrinkles.
  • Use an eye cream every day. The delicate skin around the eyes is often the first part of the face to show the signs of aging due to wear and tear from smiling, squinting and rubbing. Keeping this skin nourished with hydration is essential for tackling premature signs of aging.
  • Include your neck and chest in your skincare regimen. The 45-degree angle that you hold your head to look at your cell phone causes repeated creasing of the neck resulting in premature folds and wrinkles. Even without ever doing this, the neck is at a disadvantage for appearing older than the face since there is less bone structure to support the skin. This can all lead to eventual sagging of the area, so caring for your neck now will help in the long run. Be sure to apply moisturizers and sunscreens in an upward motion to help work against gravity in this area.

Introducing the BEST Organic Skin Care:

new year's eve makeupArbonne!

I fell in love with Arbonne last year when I was anticipating turning 40. I had previously been very inconsistent with my skincare and it was beginning to show.

I discovered that Arbonne is not only the best organic skin care company, but they are also focused on teaching the world that healthy skin comes from the inside out. Arbonne also offers a nutrition line made from botanically-based, gluten-free, Non-GMO ingredients. Everything tastes delicious and works with your body to optimize digestion.

Arbonne offers a 30-Day Healthy Living Challenge. This is an awesome support group that takes place on Facebook. Groups start twice a month and you’ll receive free coaching, support, recipes, shopping guides, and so much more.  Let me know if you are interested in finding out more.

Arbonne skincare and nutrition products are:
• Made with botanically based ingredients
• Certified vegan
• Certified gluten-free
• Clinically tested
• Certified cruelty-free

“With our increased understanding of the role of intestinal health, we are beginning to understand the gut-skin connection along with the role of probiotics in maintaining health and great-looking skin.”

-Dr. Nora Zorich, MD, PhD and Chair of the Arbonne Scientific Advisory Board

Take a look at Arbonne’s “Not Allowed” list. Did you know that in the US, only 11 ingredients are banned from use in makeup and cosmetics? Canada and the European Union have banned over 1,300 ingredients for use in makeup and cosmetics.

Arbonne takes it a step further and has a strict policy that does not allow over 2,000 ingredients in their products.

If you are focused on using organic, cruelty-free ingredients, Arbonne is the #1 choice for the best organic skin care company.

The Best Organic Skin Care is a Direct Sales Company!

That’s right! Tell me, are you instantly turned off when you see yet another friend pushing products on Facebook? Many people are! (I’m not! I enjoy helping women succeed in business – see another post all about that here)

Let’s think about the Direct Sales process. You order the products directly from the manufacturer and it’s sent to you.

Direct sales companies use independent consultants (like me) as their sales and marketing force. They save millions that they can then use for product research and development. It’s really brilliant. Plus, it offers a huge opportunity for consultants to grow their business and income.

Let’s think about the Traditional skincare distribution method – The product is manufactured, shipped to a distribution facility, then shipped to your local store where it waits on the shelves until someone purchases it.

Which seems the most ideal for you? A fresh, ‘made for you’ product – or an old product with potentially months of shelf time?

That’s another reason I love Arbonne.

What makes Arbonne The Best Organic Skin Care Company?

Arbonne was recently named the #1 Global Brand for Healthy Living from the Inside Out.

Arbonne has a strict commitment to the safety and purity of their products. They have achieved all the third-party testing necessary for organic, cruelty-free testing.

Here’s a little bit more from the company website:

The idea to provide skin care products that are unparalleled in quality and effectiveness was developed in Switzerland in 1975, when one man, Petter Mørck, together with a group of leading bio-chemists, biologists and herbalists, set out to fulfill his vision and founded Arbonne.

Arbonne skin care products, based on botanical principles, came to fruition in the United States in 1980 and are now shared throughout the world by a growing network of Arbonne Independent Consultants. Building on these same founding principles, the product line has since grown to include both inner and outer health and beauty products that are unparalleled in quality, safety, value, benefits and results.

Arbonne’s commitment to safety and purity testing is critical to ensuring the quality of our products while maintaining our ability to source the best ingredients for the formula to ensure sustainability, efficacy, product performance and stability.

New Year’s Eve Makeup Tips and Trends for 2019

It’s party time! You have a babysitter and a party to attend…New Year’s Eve is going to be EPIC. Be prepared for a fun night with these New Year’s Eve Makeup tips and trends.

New Year’s Eve Makeup

Before we get into the top New Year’s Eve makeup trends, let’s talk about some simple steps for everyday healthy skin.

Start with radiant skin.

One reason I fell in love with Arbonne is that they aren’t just selling skincare and makeup, they teach that beauty comes from the inside out.

Yes, I’ve been told, “Honey, you are beautiful on the inside!” Well…yes, of course, we are! But, I mean more like…consider your diet for healthy, radiant skin.

If you aren’t happy with your skin, consider your diet. You may be eating some common allergens like gluten or dairy that are causing your skin not to be as perfect as you would like to be.

Arbonne even provides a 30-day plan that will help teach you to eat better, remove those common allergens, and use vegan nutrition. It’s almost guaranteed that your skin will improve if you stick to the plan.

As a lady in my 40’s, skincare is a top priority for me. It wasn’t always a priority, so I encourage anyone older or younger than me to start today and take better care of your skin! It’s never too late or too early to get started. In fact, I recently wrote about this in an article titled, “Radiant Skin: 5 Unique Ways to Improve Your Skin’s Appearance.

New Year’s Eve Makeup Tips

Take a look at these tips and let me know in the comments if you have any to add.

Focus on One Feature

An age-old piece of advice stands true for New Year’s Eve. Pick one feature to focus on- eyes or lips. That doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with both. It just means that if you are doing a smoky eyeshadow/liner look, go for a more neutral shade of lipstick. Or if you want to play with red lipstick for your New Year’s Eve makeup, stick to a restrained eyeliner.

Beware the Raccoon Eyes

It is so tempting to try out a smoky eye on New Year’s Eve. You can, of course, just be sure to proceed with caution. No matter where the night takes you, it’s going to be a late night (at least Midnight, right?!) If you aren’t used to smoky eyeshadow or cat-eye liner, take it easy especially with an ultra-black color that can smudge easily and make you look like a raccoon before the night is over.

Consider dark lashes and liner and more gold or metallic shadow. Keep reading to the see New Year’s Eve makeup trends where I’ve got some great recommendations for the perfect NYE eyeshadow.

Use your Normal Foundation and Moisturizer

You don’t want your skin to freak out on you when you decide to try a new color for your New Year’s Eve makeup. Use what you know already works with your skin. If you are looking for a longer-lasting foundation, try mixing your foundation with your moisturizer. According to goop.com, this will “leave a flattering, firming sheen, and make layering easier.”

Shine, Baby, Shine

New Year’s Eve makeup is meant to make you stand out and feel beautiful. Tonight is your night to shine! Whether it’s glitter or metallics, play up your eyes, lips, hair. Spray some of the glitter gel I mention below on your hair, shoulders, or decolletage. You are never too old to wear a little glitter (or a lot of glitter).

But, Only Shine in the Right Spots

If you have oily or combination skin, you know that you may see some greasy spots come through as the night goes on. Be sure to take along some blotting paper or powder to help combat an oily t-zone throughout the night. Be sure your New Year’s Eve makeup stays spot on.

New Year’s Eve Makeup Trends 2019

Here are the top makeup trends for you to try on New Year’s Eve.

 

Healthy, Glowing Skin

I’m a bit obsessed with this nourishing facial oil! This sheer dry oil contains omega fatty acids 3 and 6, plus a super antioxidant to help support luminous, radiant skin! This is just like a superfood for your skin and will hydrate and moisturize where it’s needed most. This oil is a must-have for NYE and every day.

Check out this Nourishing Facial Oil from Arbonne:

Nude Lips

Like I mentioned above, if you are focusing on your eyes, go easy on your lips. This nude lipstick is great even for sensitive skin, plus has conditioners that will keep your lips soft and kissable when midnight comes around!

New Year’s Eve Makeup Tip:

Need a quick lip plump? Try this tip from Byrdie, “Trick your fellow New Year’s Eve partygoers into thinking you had a little work done by plumping your lips with a toothbrush. Wet your lips with warm water and then gently brush them in small circular motions with a clean, soft-bristled toothbrush. Fuller, softer, more naturally pink lips will be revealed. Lock in moisture with your favorite lip balm, and then apply a statement lip color to highlight your newly enhanced pout. This idea works perfectly for a New Year’s Eve makeup look.”

Bronzer/Highlighter

New Year’s Eve is your time to shine! Be sure to highlight your cheek and brow bones to make your features pop.

Glow-On Bronzer

Create some solar flare. This silky-light powder creates the look of glowing cheeks and brow bones. Brushes on evenly for a flawless-looking finish.

Sheer Glow Highlight Stick

The highlight of your day. Our dual ended, multi-purpose highlight stick accentuates and defines your best features. This silky duo glides gently over foundation adding radiance without streaking your makeup. Use Pearl to highlight and Bronze to give you an effortless glow.

Gold EyeShadow

Gold is huge this season! But, no matter what color you go with, use this ‘Prime & Proper Eye Makeup Primer” before. This is great on a daily basis, but especially for your New Year’s Eve makeup look. It will prevent your eyeshadow from creasing or fading and allow your color to pop.

Check out this gold palette! You can create some amazing and unique gold looks for your New Year’s Eve makeup.

New Year’s Eve Makeup Tip: Byrdie has an awesome idea to help recreate a backstage look for NYE. ‘Even if you don’t possess any professional skills. All you need is an unexpected eye shadow shade and the Scotch Magic Tape (check price here) you used a few days prior to wrapping presents. Place a strip of tape at a 45-degree angle on the outer corner of each eye. Then, use a small brush to apply a bright cream eyeshadow. The tape acts as a stencil, keeping the shadow exactly where you want it. Bonus tip: Create the eye look first, and then you’re free to clean up any smudges with a cotton swab before moving on to the rest of your face.’

Lashes for Days

I tend to go with fake eyelashes for a big night out. Lately, I have noticed that my eyelashes appear longer and thicker with several months of using “It’s a Long Story” Mascara from Arbonne. Either option are great for your New Year’s Eve makeup!

These fake eyelashes come with an easy to apply tool, and I love that they are cruelty-free!

New Year’s Eye Makeup Tip: If you don’t want to use fake eyelashes but want super-plumped looking lashes, try this tip. Simply heat your eyelash curler and hold it under your blow-dryer for 30 seconds. After you make sure it isn’t too hot, use it on your lashes for more volume than ever. Then apply mascara.

Glitter! All the Glitter!

Your New Year’s Eve makeup look needs glitter! NYE is for feeling beautiful and standing out. Try this Unicorn Sparks Glitter Gel. The glitter gel is an aloe vera gel which has organic aloe leaf juice. There are so many fun uses for this spray-on glitter gel.

EyeLiner

If you aren’t already using liquid eyeliner, it’s time to check it out. The thin felt-tip brush makes it easy to start small and build to make the perfect New Year’s Eve makeup look.

If you follow me on Instagram (@healthy.mom.beauty.) then you know that I struggle to put on eyeliner! Here’s what I’ve learned: All you do is start with the top lid, from the inner corner of your eye and work outward using short strokes. Start close to the lashes for a natural look or build it up for a more dramatic NYE look. Look down for a better angle and take a selfie with your eyes closed to check placement.

You are all ready for your night on the town with the perfect New Year’s Eve makeup! But wait! Do you have an outfit? Here are some of my favorites!

10 Simply Amazing Methods of Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

10 Simply Amazing Methods of Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

Looking for Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes? Check out these 10 simple treatments that will you deal with those wrinkles!


treatment for wrinkles around eyes Why is it that as we age, especially if we love to laugh and smile, that our skin seems to penalize us by turning those laughs into laugh lines?

If you are like me, you have a lot of expressions when you talk. My face always gives away what I’m thinking…often at the worst times.

The skin around your eyes is constantly moving, in fact even blinking causes 10,000 movements per day.

Smiling, squinting, staring at computers or devices too long can all cause laugh lines, crow’s feet, or any kind of fine line under your eyes.

The skin around our eyes is ten times thinner than the rest of the skin on your face.

Extra care should be given when you touch your eye area.

Be sure to use the ring finger to apply any cosmetics or moisturizers to that part of the face. Your ring finger is the weakest finger you have and won’t able to apply much pressure.

Why do we get Fine Lines Around Eyes?

The skin ages in two ways – biologically (Thanks, Mom) and environmentally (Thanks, Sun).

According to the American Academy of Dermatology:

  • Production of collagen and elastin slows down a dramatic 65% between ages 20 and 80.
  • The thickness of the skin decreases 6% every 10 years.
  • The sun causes 90%–95% of the wrinkles, lines, as well as brown, red and white discoloration on our bodies.
  • 90% of premature facial aging can be attributed to sun damage. This is why you’ll see me wearing a hat if I am outside!

Okay, let’s talk about the causes of wrinkles.

Is anyone else here a Martina McBride fan? ME! I’m literally one of her biggest fans. I was listening to “This One’s for the Girls” recently and this line hit close to home:

This is for all you girls about forty-two,

Tossin’ pennies into the fountain of youth,

Every laugh line on your face,

Made you who you are today.

Martina, if you are reading, I love you.

I’ve mentioned in a previous post that my skincare goal is to age gracefully.  The wrinkles are going to come anyway, but there are few treatments for wrinkles around eyes that you can easily do without using needles or injectables to fix them

Here are the top causes that lead us looking for treatments for wrinkles around eyes:

  • Hereditary
  • Age
  • You speak with lots of gestures and emotions
  • Hormonal disorders that lead to a violation of skin elasticity (for example, during the post-menopause in women, this skin defect begins to form)
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Lack of sleep
  • Too much sun exposure
  • Frequent stress
  • Smoking
  • The use of alcoholic beverages
  • Use substandard cosmetics
  • Use of unintended cosmetics for this area of the face
  • Rubbing various masks, creams or scrubs into this zone
  • Long work at the computer
  • Genetic predisposition

10 simply amazing methods of treatment for wrinkles around eyes

1. Drink more water

The skin around the eye is very thin and subject to dehydration. The BEST treatment for wrinkles around eyes is to simply drink more water. Here’s how to calculate how much water you should drink: Divide your body weight in half, then divide that by 8. That is the MINIMUM number of cups of water you should be drinking on a daily basis.

I challenge you to drink half your body weight in ounces daily. It’s tough to get used to at first, but then you’ll start to see some amazing positive results in your skin and the way you feel overall.

Tip: Get a fun bottle that you enjoy drinking out of. Something fun, fancy, or flirty will help encourage you to drink and carry your water with you wherever you go.

Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

2. Wear sunglasses

This is a pretty basic treatment for wrinkles around eyes. Sun damage is the worst damage to our skin and causes 90 – 95% of wrinkles. Plus, the sun also causes age spots and other discoloration in our skin. Anytime you feel the need to squint or strain your eyes to see, you need sunglasses.

Bonus: Wear a hat for prolonged sun exposure. A big floppy hat that will cover your entire face is a great way to preserve your skin and reduce the effects of the sun.

Tip: If you already have age spots, I have an awesome product suggestion to help get rid of them. It’s called resurfacing pads.

Treatment for Wrinkles Around EyesThis retinoid solution with skin resurfacing pads gently exfoliates to promote cell turnover at the skin’s surface and brightens to help significantly reduce the look of dark spots and fine lines.

Retinoids, along with other ingredients, helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and skin discoloration; with continued use, skin tone and clarity is more evenly restored

3. Sleep on your back

Here’s a tip from Live About for a treatment for wrinkles around eyes – avoid sleeping on your stomach.

“When you sleep on your belly, the side of your face resting on your pillow is squished for hours at a time. By constantly squishing your face each night into your pillow, you are causing creasing which can eventually turn into wrinkles. (Notice sleep lines each morning?)

Try falling asleep on your back. If you find it hard to stay that way, put a pillow under your knees, which will help you stay in place and not roll over onto your stomach.

Can’t imagine not sleeping on your belly? Consider investing in a specially shaped pillow that allows you to sleep on your stomach while protecting your skin from wrinkles.”

Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

4. Don’t touch!

What do you when you get tired from straining too long at the computer or when you wake up in the morning? You rub your eyes. Stop doing that! Rubbing and tugging in that delicate area around your eyes will only cause more damage. Remember this treatment for wrinkles around eyes – keep your hands off!

5. Use SPF

I understand that certain skin types have issues with SPF, but it’s so important that you find the right one that works for you. Daily SPF should be the first step for treatment for wrinkles around eyes.

Check out this premium SPF. It has a multipurpose formula provides critical moisture to the skin to hydrate, smooth and firm skin’s appearance while helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Unique botanical complex helps replenish skin’s natural moisture barrier, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. It has a long-lasting moisturizing formula helps maintain youthful-looking, hydrated skin. Plus, a broad spectrum SPF 20 sunscreen offers UVA/UVB protection to minimize the risk of sun damage or aging, if used as directed with other sun protection measures.

6. Face yoga

This is one of my FAVORITES when it comes to treatment for wrinkles around eyes. I discovered anti-aging face yoga on dailyom.com. DailyOM.com is an amazing website with so many classes. Prices start at $10 and you have lifetime access to each lesson from the class.

I have no affiliation with dailyom.com. I recommend them every chance I get. Take a look and you will find several classes that will likely interest you.

In this course, you’ll learn The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method. In just minutes per day, Face Yoga accelerates a natural way to look your best and feel younger. It is a holistic practice which uses face exercises, face massage, acupressure and relaxation to help activate collagen production and muscle tone in your face. Regular Face Yoga practice helps your face re-attain its youthful look, making it a simple and easy method to rediscover the best version of you!

7. Premium skincare

I can’t emphasize this enough – check the ingredients of your skincare. You may be amazed to discover that we put so many chemicals on our skin. The products we put on our skin are absorbed into our bloodstream. So, be sure that you are using a premium skincare for your treatment for wrinkles around eyes.

Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

8. Ultrasound Tool

This is such a cool treatment for wrinkles around eyes, and one of my favorite tools! It’s called the Genius Ultra. It uses ultrasound technology to push your skincare products deeper into the layers of your skin.

If you want even better, faster results from your Arbonne® skincare, you need to start using the Genius Ultra right away!

The Genius Ultra emits gentle, low-level ultrasound waves to help push the product onto the various layers of the skin by getting into the ridges. With just a few minutes a day, you can effectively maximize your Arbonne skincare products to work harder, for faster results! Use the Genius Ultra together with any face and neck products on the forehead, eyes, lips, cheeks, neck, and décolletage and start seeing results!

Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

9. Gel eye pads

Imagine having the coolness of a cucumber to soothe tired eyes plus the moisture-boosting superfood cocktail of antioxidants, omegas, and phytonutrients to help soften the look of baby lines around the eyes. All of this is available in a gel eye mask that soothes and cools on contact.

This is a refreshing treatment for wrinkles around eyes!

Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

 

10. Consistency

Here’s the bad news, there is no overnight treatment for wrinkles around eyes that works instantly. Find a product that you like, use the entire line. Premium skincare products were made to work together, so you will be getting an added bonus if you use all the products.

Now, use those products day and night. It takes time to see results and you must be consistent. If you are ever too tired to go through the entire routine to take care of your skin, then simplify rather than skip.
