Many people think they have to use expensive treatments and ointments or that they have to have surgery to help them look as young as possible. However, in many cases, simply taking care of your eyes and the immediate area around them on the face is more than enough to shave a decade or two off of your overall appearance.

Help Prevent Wrinkles

Using a dedicated eye cream on the skin surrounding your eyes can work wonders when it comes to making your facial area look younger than it really is. Most eye creams contain the right combination of ingredients such as moisturizers, serums, vitamins, minerals and other treatments which help prevent the formation of wrinkles and crows’ feet that are responsible for making a person look older than necessary. These days, there are numerous day and night moisturizing creams available, all of which play an active role in protecting the skin around the eyes and keeping it and your eyes themselves looking as young as possible.

Eliminating Dark Circles

One of the main and often overlooked factors that contribute to making a person’s eyes look a lot older than necessary is a lack of quality sleep. Experts recommend that in order to prevent the appearance of dark circles and puffy bags from forming under the eyes, you should get at least seven to nine hours’ of uninterrupted sleep each night. This will not only prevent your looks from rivaling those of a panda bear; it will also help put that extra little sparkle in your eyes, which will then make you look decades younger. To get a good nights’ rest, you need to be willing to have your room be as dark as possible, while having little to no electronic gadgets in your room as well.

Staying Sufficiently Hydrated

When it comes to care of the eyes and the delicate skin surrounding them, very few people realize that hydration plays a crucial role here as well. In many cases, the buildup of toxins in the body along with dehydration can also play a large part in having the eyes and the skin around them looking dull and lifeless. Drinking plenty of water or green tea will not only help keep you well hydrated on the inside; these two substances are essential components when it comes to flushing and eliminating harmful toxins from the body. In turn, you will be rewarded with eyes that look vibrant and healthy. It is usually recommended that six to eight glasses of water or green tea be consumed daily.

Taking care of your eyes each day will help ensure that you are able to stay looking young for as long as possible. Although the above mentioned steps may seem like a lot of effort to implement on a daily basis, you will in turn be rewarded with the fact that people will be complimenting you wherever you go for looking a few decades younger than you actually are.
