Although you may be diligent about showing your eyes a little love with liquid eyeliners and tube mascaras, it takes more than glamorous makeup to give your peepers a youthful appearance. Aside from taking off your makeup every night and wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes, you need powerful antioxidants to help battle the effects of aging.
According to Allure Magazine, you should be using an antioxidant-rich cream twice a day, in the morning and at night. This will aid your skin in its effort to combat the effects of free-radical damage, which is caused by the sun as well as pollution in the environment. Some of the best antioxidant ingredients to look for include coffeeberry, green tea and idebenone, but there are a wide variety of others that work great too.
Of course, it will also help to keep eating those fruits and veggies, as many of these sources are rich in vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants that your skin needs. Blueberries, pomegranates and acai berries are particularly potent.
Once you've beefed up your antioxidant intake, you'll have a smoother canvas on which to apply your favorite blinc tube mascara, liquid eyeliner and eyebrow mousse.
