We all know that a redhead’s skin is much more sensitive and fairer than others, so puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles around the eyes tend to show up more frequently.  The skin surrounding the area of the eye is the thinnest in the entire body and as time passes, the upper lids loosen, the lower lids get puffy and fine lines start to appear.

Every redhead, no matter what age, should own an eye cream or gel because the skin around the eye needs extra protectant.

TIPS:

1. Apply cream around the eye twice a day, morning and night.

2. If you have noticeably dark circles under the eyes, it’s is highly recommended  by beauticians to opt for creams with vitamin K; doctors use it before cosmetic surgery to prevent bruising.

3. It is said that gels present faster results than creams, but every person’s skin is different. Try both options and see which one is best for you.
