Dealing with dark circles, under-eye bags, or deepening eye wrinkles? Okay, so what’s the best way to guard against signs of aging and chronic fatigue around the eyes?
The solution to keeping eye areas looking youthful and revitalized isn’t limited to using good skincare products… we need good daily habits, too. Below are 10 lifestyle tips to help “age-proof” the eye area. How many of them are you already doing?
1.) Stay hydrated. Have a water bottle nearby and drink water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the outside-in. The usual recommendation is about 8 cups of water per day.
2.) Eat healthy. A balanced diet that includes protein, vegetables, fruits, and healthy fats gives you the vitamins and minerals that skin needs to stay moisturized and firm.
3.) Don't lick your lips, even if they feel dry. Water evaporating off lips can make them drier, breaking down the protective barrier. Plus, the enzymes in saliva can break down the protective barrier even more. Use a lip balm to help seal in moisture.
4.) Don't sleep on your stomach. A face pressed into a pillow can cause sleep wrinkles around the eyes and face. Regular pressure can deepen fine lines and make them permanent wrinkles.
5.) Think twice about smoking or vaping. Squinting through smoke or vapor may cause deeper lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
6.) Try not to squint when looking at a computer screen or your cell phone screen. A bright screen or small print can cause you to automatically squint, so adjust the screen brightness or print size.
7.) Wear sunglasses when you are outside to help protect skin from fine lines, dark spots, and other signs of UV damage.
8.) Use sun protection not only in summer, but throughout the year. UVA and UVB rays are very damaging during all seasons—even in overcast weather.
9.) Use broad-spectrum sunscreen and reapply frequently. Use Kizo Lab UV Defense Clear Sunscreen. This lightweight, clear gel 50 SPF sunscreen features the highest rating of PA++++ to guard skin from UVA rays that cause signs of aging, and SPF 50 to protect against UVB rays that cause sunburn.

10.) Use Kizo Lab Dark Circle Repair Eye Cream every morning and night. Key ingredients include seven skin-firming peptides, five moisture-boosting ceramides, mineral-rich 3E Electrolyte Complex, and soothing botanicals for a refreshed, revitalized look. This lightweight eye cream eases under-eye inflammation, helps fade dark circles, eases under-eye inflammation, and smooths out fine lines, while helping protect eye areas from visible effects of environmental stressors. Bottom line? This multi-action eye cream is the perfect solution for people who are tired of looking tired.
