Eye contour: 5 simple tips to firm it

The facial skin is not uniform. Thus, the eye contour is particularly fine.
It is often he who betrays our state of health, fatigue or even our age.
It therefore requires appropriate care. To take care of the eye area, simple and effective tips are circulating on all beauty blogs.
We have selected the 5 best to help you fight against dark circles and wrinkles in this fragile area.

Why does the skin of the eyes mark so easily?

The eye contours are made up of very thin skin. Wrinkles and pockets therefore register very easily.
Dark circles are explained by poor microcirculation. Blood and lymph stagnate under your eye and become visible due to the thinness of the skin. Your eyes then appear tired. “Pockets” are well-established and very visible dark circles. The skin bulges under the eyes.
It also happens that bags do not come from marked dark circles, but from skin aging. This isn't due to your skin type, it's more "random" than that. It will then be interesting to fight against the signs of skin aging to reduce these puffiness.

Tip #1 for firming the eye area: facial gymnastics

A little session of facial gymnastics will allow you to maintain the beauty of your face. The idea is simple: firm the eye area by stimulating the muscles.
To tone the eye area, close your eyes and look alternately left, right, up and down. Finish your exercise by squinting your eyes hard. You will hardly find a more natural facial treatment! Do this exercise 5 times in the morning and evening to firm your eye area without using cream or serum.
