-When washing your face, avoid splashing your eyes with very cold or very hot water, use lukewarm water. -Avoid rubbing your eyes when you’re tired, as this causes friction and can increase fine lines and break capillaries.
-It’s also hereditary and excessive alcohol consumption is a big contributor
-Asians and of African decent have a greater chance of getting it due to their pigmentation issues
-With age, the skin thins out, especially around the eyes, which exposes the tiny blood vessels that lie right below
-As well as lack of sleep
-When you’re young, our skin cells renews itself naturally, but as we get older, the cell turnover slows and dead skin cells build up around the eyes
-Skin thins and the collagen breaks down, reducing the elasticity in the skin and causing lines
* Always apply a sunscreen around the eye area
*Smoking and exposure to UV rays weaken collagen and causes premature wrinkling and sagging
*Apply moisturizer to the eye area every night, sometimes you need a little hydration
*Pressure point massaging is a great way to bring circulation to the under eye are - using your middle finger, gently apply pressure to the pressure point areas around your orbital bone and hold eash pressure point for 3-5 seconds. | Begin above the middle of the brow bone, on the upper and lower temples, at the middle of the top of the cheekbone, and along the sides of the nose near the inner eye corners. Repeat as necessary.
*Fine lines can be minimized by using eye cream and eye masks that promote cell turnover and help rebuild collagen
*Sleeping is also very important! Our cells regenerate while we sleep so it’s essential to apply eye creams at night
*Removing your eye makeup every night is also important, when you’re asleep your eyes release moisture and the mascara, eyeshadow can stain under the eyes
sometimes I realize there are people on my dash heavily burdened with horrible things
and I just desperately hope that you’ll be okay, you’ll find the strength to continue and do the right thing for yourself, you’ll make it through and be happy
all of you
Guys it’s really important during this whole ferguson protest that we as social media DO NOT back down until punishment is dealt to those racists. If we let this movement die, then the oppressors win. I’ve seen stuff like this before and the majority of people stop posting about it within a week. We can’t let that happen, this is too important. so keep reblogging and keep posting until these darn racists are punished for their awful inhumane actions.
