There is a saying that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” If you think about that, it could as well have gone another way and be said quite simply as “beauty is in the eyes.” Why not, as the eyes are a mesmerizing feature of the face.
Being one of the most delicate organs in the body, our eyes need our gentlest care when it comes to cleansing them. It is important to select good products to include in your beauty regimen for taking care of the eyes. Never neglect your eyes while taking care of your face.
The fragile tissue around the eyes can be damaged if you don’t clean the eye area carefully. There is no need to further aggravate this ultra sensitive region on your face when it is already prone to showing the effects of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines. So, take good care instead.
Think of cleansing the eyes as a way to complete the day in a relaxed manner. Investing a few extra minutes daily to do this can result in sparkling eyes in the longer term. Of course, you’d need to pay attention on how to do this right. Like when you are removing makeup.
Use the Right Type of Makeup Remover
Three variations to the theme of removing makeup can be learned from various sources on beauty advice. In no order of preference, these are:
- Water-based removers — These are good when you lack time. With one quick sweep of cotton wool, you can clean the eyes and remove all traces of oil. All without doing a rinse.
- Cleansing milks — These are for those who don’t quite like using water to cleanse or prefer an extra-gentle treatment. Works very well for removing heavy makeup.
- Half-cleanser / Half-toner — So called two-phased lotions, these are ideal for people who wear very little makeup — yeah, natural is nice! — or have sensitive skin. The result is eyes looking clear and feeling refreshed.

Here’s a cautionary note from professional makeup artists regarding removing makeup: if you are re-applying (perhaps a different) makeup right away, do not remove the old to avoid transfer of old makeup into the new and messing things up.
Now that you know the simple tips to great eye care, make sure that you implement them without delay. There’s really no excuse not to use these useful beauty tips to get the younger looking eyes you so desire. Cleanse your eyes well, take good care and enjoy the attention your sparkling eyes bring.
