How To Boost The Skin Under Your Eyes In Just 5 Steps

Kiss those crow’s feet goodbye.
November 15, 2017

As your skin changes over time, so should your skin care routine. While we all know that with age comes wisdom, it also brings a new set of skin care complexities. Instead of acne and blemishes, you might notice some of the most common signs of aging like crow’s feet, dark circles, and under-eye bags begin to set in. The first step to address these changes is to build a skin care routine with the right anti-aging skin care products for your maturing complexion. Below, we’re sharing a five-step anti-aging skin care routine for your eyes that can help turn back the clock on the appearance of dark circles, crow’s feet, and puffiness.

Step 1: Gently Cleanse Your Skin

No matter your age, a good skin care routine should consist of using a facial cleanser twice a day. While it’s important to be thorough while cleansing when it comes to the delicate skin in your under-eye area, make sure to wash with care. Try a cream facial cleanser like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser, which helps remove all traces of impurities and makeup from the surface of your skin without over-drying it.

Step 2: Pat On A Serum

With the right ingredients, a facial serum could be just the anti-aging boost your skin needs. Look for serums that are formulated with anti-aging ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and retinol, and antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E

For a serum that works day and night, try the
L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Skincare Cell Renewal Anti-Aging Midnight Serum and for a high potency dose of wrinkle-fighting retinol, add the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Night Serum, 0.3% Pure Retinol into your nighttime routine.

Step 3: Smooth A Moisturizer Over Your Skin

Keeping your skin hydrated is vital, so be sure to apply a face moisturizer twice a day. Use an anti-aging moisturizer like L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Anti-Aging Moisturizer Fragrance Free that works around the clock and is formulated with pro-retinol, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid to help firm and tighten the skin. For a daytime option, try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30.

Step 4: Choose An Eye Cream

The right eye cream can be the key to minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet, dark circles, or puffy under-eyes. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Anti-Aging Eye Cream Treatment is a powerful eye cream made with an exclusive Antioxidant Recovery Complex that targets five visible signs of aging and helps the skin around the eyes appear younger.

To reduce under-eye bags and puffiness, try the
L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Revitalift Derm Intensives with 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid, 1% Caffeine Eye Serum which is packed with skin brightening hyaluronic acid and caffeine.

Step 5: Make Sun Protection A Priority

Sun damage is one of the leading causes of visible skin aging, so before you step outside always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater. Seamlessly mix your sun protection into your skin care routine by using an anti-aging moisturizer formulated with SPF like the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Collagen Expert Day Moisturizer with SPF 30

Don’t forget to take other sun protection measures, too — limit your amount of time in the sun during peak hours, cover up exposed areas of your skin and seek  shade whenever possible.
