The sensitive area around the eyes and under the eyes is commonly the first place that wrinkles start to form. This is because there are no oil glands in this area, so the tender skin is more likely to start losing its firmness before other areas of your face. |
Treating this area can be challenging, because the skin is tender and sensitive. Also, the eyes themselves can be vulnerable to any particles or fumes that may be absorbed inadvertently. However, there are some essential oils that are ideal for this under eye area that can reduce the look of lines and replenish the skin's lost tone.
Combining an ounce of jojoba oil with a few drops each of rose oil and chamomile oil will create a nourishing and effective under eye serum that's gentle enough for this delicate area.
Jojoba is a fabulous hydrating oil, which will penetrate more than just the surface layer, leaving the skin soft and supple. Rose oil and chamomile oil both have healing properties and will increase the elasticity and tone of the skin. You only need a few drops of these latter oils, four or five drops of each one at the most.
Apply you serum to clean skin at least once a day, preferably before settling into bed in the evening. Be careful not to pull or tug at the tender skin around the eye, and do not apply any serum to the eyelid itself. When the area around the eye improves its tone, it will naturally pull the lid tighter.
You only need a small amount of essential oil serum, so be careful not to oversaturate. You can apply it with your fingertip, or a cotton swab if you prefer. If you're applying a serum in the morning, make sure you let it rest on the skin for about fifteen minutes before applying any moisturizers or makeup to avoid contaminating the eye.
Getting older, and the lines that come with it, are inevitable. You will never stop the aging process, but you can hide it away with the help of essential oils.
