In less-than-ideal economic conditions, “luxury” things usually succumb to wants. Commonly, beauty merchandise is thought to not be necessary however this can be debatableâ€” especially if your skin has any say within the matter.
Yes, you may have to hold off on snatching up the hot new eye shadow color of the season and try mixing your existing colors to create something comparable, but there is bound merchandise that you just mustn’t go while not, like your moisturizer.
Moisturizer is vital to keeping your skin healthy, hydrated, and youthful. The good (and cost-effective) news is it is also a multitasker. I have return up with six uses for one tiny miracle worker: your eye moisturizer.
Why specifically an eye moisturizer? In my personal and skilled opinion, if one thing is safe enough to use around your eyes, that constitutes your most delicate skin, then it’s safe enough to use anyplace.
Here are six uses for this product:
1. As an eye moisturizer. This is the obvious choice but worth mentioning. Around your eyes is one of the first areas that will give away your age, with fine lines and crow’s feet starting as early as your late 20s or early 30s. Start young with an anti-aging eye cream, and you’ll be less likely to need a lift later on. But, keep in mind, it is never too late to start!
2. As a facial moisturizer. Most eye creams contain tightening, super-hydrating, and wrinkle-reducing ingredientsâ€” traits that the rest of your face would like to take advantage of, as well!
3. To reduce puffiness. Coolness is the best anti-inflammatory, so try keeping your eye moisturizer in the fridge to help alleviate bags around your eyes.
4. To combat dark circles. Only concealer, or a product with color, will truly hide your dark circles, but concealer can be thick, and applying it to your under-eye area may draw more negative attention than it does good. To cut the heavy consistency, mix your concealer with an eye moisturizer for some effective and non-cakey coverage.
5. To customize a new foundation. Take a dime-sized amount of eye moisturizer and add a few pumps (or squirts or drops) of your favorite liquid/cream foundation to create a tinted moisturizer. The less foundation added, the sheerer the coverage, so mix just until you get your desired level.
6. To keep your lips from cracking. With the cold weather approaching, it is important to keep your lips moist. Dot a drop of your eye moisturizer on the perimeter of your lips and get to rubbing. Not only will it keep your lips soft and hydrated, but it will also aid in reducing the fine lines around your mouth.
