Whether you're Irish or not, taking proper care of your eyes keeps them smilin'. Eyes are often the first thing people notice, so you want to ensure that you keep yours bright, beautiful and happy--and that means proper cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. For most people, the skin around the eyes is thinner and more sensitive than other parts of your face. Thus, the telltale signs of aging, fatigue and stress -- fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, stretching and dark circles -- are more visible around the eyes. There are almost no muscles under the eye skin; a lot of tiny blood vessels are located very close to the skin's surface, which makes this area more susceptible to damage. To combat the symptoms of stress and aging, reach for formulas specially designed for use around the eyes. Balms, creams, serums and even capsules abound to replenish elastin, restore collagen, repair dark circles, decrease puffiness, reduce fine lines, wrinkles and crow's feet, tighten eyelid skin and firm, contour and hydrate skin around the eyes. All eye skin care products should be applied gently so as not to stretch or pull the sensitive skin around the eyes. And don't forget sunscreen!
