Create beautiful eyes by being more creative and discerning with your skin and beauty routine. With national clean beauty day around the corner, it’s a sign from the universe telling you now is the time to nourish the skin around your eyes because it’s really simple to do. Now, we know it’s easy to neglect our skin not to mention our eyes, but just like anything with a few simple tips and practice you’ll be glowing with health from the inside out.
Why Do Your Skin And Eyes Matter?
The main reason is that your skin and eyes are connected to your body’s natural defense system and what goes onto those parts of you, is directly absorbed into your body. So, you can just imagine how detrimental it is to be constantly layering on thick wads of makeup or cosmetics filled with toxic chemicals or harsh ingredients which may cause or exacerbate allergies, irritations, inflammation, and diseases in your skin, eyes, or body.
With COVID-19 and all the mask-wearing, there’s no doubt that many ladies are making their eyes a priority in terms of beauty. But, have you considered your eye health and what those toxic chemicals in your products are doing to your overall health?
Create Beautiful Eyes With Beautiful Skin
Most likely you haven’t, which is why we feel it is our duty to remind you that your skin and eyes are not only the window to your soul but provide a glimpse into your overall health. Besides, EcoDiva has a wide variety of skincare and beauty products that will not only [pH] balance your skin but will also provide bio-identical plant-based ingredients rich in phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals.

Remember that the skin around your eyes is one of the thinnest, most sensitive areas of your body which is why we need to nourish this area to create beautiful eyes. According to Lauren Fine, MD, a board-certified dermatologist at Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology in Illinois., we need to create beautiful eyes because they’re also among the first areas to reveal signs of ageing, like fine lines.
Why? Well, because the skin around your eyes doesn’t have as many oil glands and collagen as the rest of your face and body, making it more prone to dryness, droopiness, lines, and wrinkles. However, it’s not just the fine lines we’re worried about, it’s the good health of your vision and eyes to create beautiful eyes. Sometimes nasty free radicals, allergies, and improper skin care or beauty routines can cause damage to your eye health. Therefore, it’s best to use products packed with natural and bio-identical plant-based phytonutrients, minerals, and vitamins which can help to boost the nutritional health of your eyes and of course your skin.
A Balanced Skin Microbiome To Create Beautiful Eyes
We’ve made it clear how important it is to take care of your skin, but when’s the last time you gave serious consideration to your skin’s microbiome? You may have heard about the gut microbiome, but guess what? Your skin has its own one too! Both of which promote overall health to create beautiful eyes.
Your skin microbiome or skin microbiota is an ecosystem of bacteria on the skin’s surface. It works to guard you against pathogens that could affect your skin and overall health. When your microbiome is balanced, your skin looks and feels healthy. But it can become unbalanced when there are more harmful bacteria than helpful bacteria, leading to issues like dryness and itching.
Here Are Some Tips To Keep Your Skin And Eye Defences Strong
To create beautiful eyes, you need to know about our effective tips. With this simple article you will learn essential skin and eye tips, get an idea of the products you should use, and how to keep your skin and eyes healthy and beautiful on a daily basis.
Besides your health, the ability to create beautiful eyes and skin will not only feel great, but you’ll also look amazing when you’re out or at work. Since masks are our new top fashion accessory, stunning eyes are the place to start with, and we believe these tips and tricks of eye care will help you get there.
Stay Hydrated For Beautiful Skin And Eyes
Katie Stoner of Secrets of Hair Design & Day Spa, in Butler, PA. says that the key to flawless beauty and stunning eyes starts with a daily moisturising cream.
You should always moisturise the skin to create beautiful eyes, including the eyelids, with a daily moisturiser before applying any makeup. It’s so common for us to forget to hydrate our skin and eyes, but this is particularly important if you’re living in a dry climate.
Want A Natural Hydration Fix?
I highly recommend Eco Diva’s Natural Face Cream because it works wonders for all skin types, offering superfood vitamins to nurture, heal and restore skin elasticity and boost collagen production.
This product is also in Eco Diva’s Per(pH)ect Pigmentation, Acne, Eczema, Rosacea, Pro-Ageing, and Psoriasis Solution Sets, which means there is a solution for everyone.
All you need is a little pea-sized dab of Natural Face Cream under your eyes, at the corners, and around your face. Just gently massage the cream in circular motions. What’s great about this cream is that it’s made using coconut oil which helps bolster your skin’s protective barrier layer, trapping moisture inside and keeping skin supple and hydrated.
It also reduces inflammation, making it beneficial for irritated, chafed skin and increases collagen production. Believe it or not, adding moisture actually helps prevent greasy skin during the day. This is because your skin has no need to produce additional oils. Better yet, hydrated skin gives you the power to create beautiful eyes since they too will benefit from the added nutrients and protective barrier.
Stay Bright And Keep Your Face Clean
Not only will a clean face boost the health of your skin microbiome, but it’ll also perk up tired eyes. Just be cautious with the face wash or cleanser you’re choosing to use because this could dry out your skin or even aggravate your eyes.
This why I recommend switching to a gentle, more natural product like Eco Diva’s Facewash. It contains natural olive and sesame seed oils to keep your skin hydrated and grapefruit oil for a fresh, citrus scent to wake up the skin and eyes.
To create beautiful eyes and skin, facial hygiene is imperative. I bet you didn’t realise that forgetting to wash your face is often associated with eye irritations, infections, swelling, diseases, and inflammation. So not only is washing your face important for your skin, but it also improves your eye health.
Don’t Sleep With Your Makeup On
Also, note that sleeping with makeup and foundation on is the ultimate crime. We’ve all done it, coming home after being out or working late. Doing this once or twice won’t harm you much, however, do it repeatedly and you’ll do more damage than just clogging up your pores. It’s even worse if you wear contact lenses because this means your eyes are already sensitive and leaving makeup on overnight can be a breeding ground for bacteria.
According to the founder of Clear Clinic, Dr. Eric Schweiger sleeping in your eye makeup will not cause fine lines or acne on the skin, but it can still lead to problems. Plus, mascara and eyeliner can be rubbed by your pillow and end up in your eyes, which can lead to significant eye irritation. This certainly won’t help you to create beautiful eyes and healthy skin.
Be Gentle, Always
You need to be gentle to create beautiful eyes when applying and removing makeup or products on and off your skin, especially around the eyes. Remember that the skin around the eyes is very thin.
When You Remove Your Makeup
- Apply your favourite eye makeup remover to a cotton pad.
- Press the pad gently onto your skin.
- Slowly drag it in an outward motion.
- Repeat until your makeup is fully removed.
When You Apply Your Products
- Apply your product to your pinky finger.
- Dab your products around the eyes, circling your eye area. Don’t forget the upper eyelid.
- Repeat until the product is fully absorbed into the skin.
Recover And Cleanse From Clogged And Puffy Skin
You know that leaving makeup on overnight is going to clog up your pores. This could lead to all kinds of stress on your skin microbiome and eyes resulting in breakouts from impurities, dirt, and dead skin cells. You may even be left with stressed, dull, and puffy skin and eyes. When this happens, your skin is experiencing an uneven pH balance. FYI, foundations and thick, oil-based primers are often the worst offenders. They prevent the skin from renewing itself naturally at night, causing blackheads, acne, and dullness.
Therefore, your best bet is to ensure you always clean your face before bed to create beautiful eyes and healthy skin. But, I reviewed Eco Diva’s Natural Hydrating Masque and loved it! This product has been developed with powerful dual-action properties and is perfect for all skin types:
- It removes impurities, dirt, and dead skin cells. The hydrating masque contains Kaolin clay which works as a spot corrector for breakouts to detox, cleanse pores and reduce pimples.
- The product also helps to create beautiful eyes because it’s filled with deeply hydrating ingredients, concentrated vitamins, and nutrients. All of which contribute to recovering from skin damage, anti-ageing, and enhancing skin barrier properties.
This is an amazing product that will assist you in balancing the skin’s pH levels. An added bonus is that its Omega 3,6, and 9 fatty acid content will also help increase elasticity and moisture to create beautiful eyes. All whilst the antioxidants, vitamins C and E help protect your skin from free radicals that cause skin ageing.
Revitalize Stressed And Dull Skin
Lastly, dry or flaky skin particularly around the eyes and face is very common during winter or in dry climates. Nothing would keep my skin hydrated no matter what I tried, without making it dry again afterward. However, when I tried and reviewed Eco Diva’s natural Superfood Face Serum, my skin finally felt hydrated, soft, and looked more youthful after just one use. Also, because I struggle with dry eye syndrome, I need to ensure my skin is always hydrated and moisturized to create beautiful eyes.
The serum contains vitamin-rich oils that offer anti-aging, anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties which is great for those of you who are prone to inflammation or allergies. Better yet, the serum also contains naturally occurring UVA + UVB protection. The perfect potion for assisting in balancing the skins’ pH levels and providing deep skin hydration.
Therefore, if you are struggling to maintain a healthy skin pH balance give this serum a try. Use it to create beautiful eyes and healthy skin with its seven, nutrient-rich oils which will reduce dryness, flakiness and restore suppleness by encouraging collagen production. The serum will create a natural barrier to prevent and repair free radical damage.
After cleansing with Eco Diva Face Wash and Ecofoliant Skin Polish, apply 5-10 drops of serum into your palm and gently warm it between your hands. Apply to your face, eye, and neck areas in circular motions until fully absorbed to create beautiful eyes and skin. I recommend using this serum in conjunction with Eco Diva Face Cream for a #DoubleDivaGlow effect.
What matters most is that you take care of yourself holistically, from a natural skin and beauty routine to a healthy and balanced daily diet to create beautiful eyes and skin. I encourage you to be mindful about your purchases, what you’re putting onto your skin and around your eyes.
Also, be sure to not only double-check the labels of beauty and cosmetic products but to look for different ways to create beautiful eyes. Try eating a deliciously healthy and balanced diet filled with eye nutrients like Beta-carotene, Lutein (found in green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, and yellow carrots), Omega-3, Lycopene, and Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin E.
As we mature, we need additional support for our eye health in the form of effective supplements, beauty routines, diet, and exercise. These are some of the products I’ve been using to create beautiful eyes and help naturally strengthen the health of her skin and body and she loves them! We believe you will too.
Makeup is not just a product that makes you look beautiful, it may also be a health hazard, and here’s why we ALL no matter our eye health, need to be discerning.
