It’s one of the first things that happen as we grow older. And, once it has happened, it is all we can see and think about. What is it? Eye wrinkles.
Our eyes are often one of the first things people notice about us (along with our smiles). It is also one of the first places we can start to show signs of ageing.
Thankfully, there are products out there that can help prevent wrinkles from forming if you use them early. And products that can help reduce or even eliminate the appearance of wrinkles once they’ve appeared.
As society focuses on wellness, being environmentally friendly, and more natural products, it can be challenging to know what eye care products to try—one solution: hemp cream.
What Causes Eye Wrinkles?
Before we dive into what hemp cream is and how it can help the skin around your eyes, let’s take a look at what exactly will cause those pesky wrinkles to appear there in the first place.
First, the skin around your eyes is the most delicate place on your body. The skin is thin and needs to be protected and treated gently. Because this skin is so tender, it is often the first place wrinkles will appear.
Second, you use your eyes all day, and in ways, you may not realize. Not only are your eyes working to see everything around you, but they also blink regularly and help express emotion. Your eyes even squint as you try to make out far-away things. All this use can cause wrinkles to start to form before you want them to.
Third, external factors such as UV rays, sun exposure, even genetics can cause the skin around your eyes to age quickly. That’s why protecting eyes with sunglasses is so essential when outdoors; it’s not just protecting your eyeballs but the area around them as well.
Finally, ageing is natural and, unfortunately, inevitable. Despite knowing everyone ages, many people still want to find ways to prevent it from happening or at least slow the process down, especially around their eyes.
What Is Hemp Cream?
Hemp plants are very versatile. Every part is suitable for use in making other things. It’s part of what makes this plant so popular. Its fibers are suitable for making hemp clothing and bags, and its seeds can be used to make oil. It is useful as an ingredient in creams used as part of a beauty or skincare regimen.
So, in essence, hemp cream is simply body cream that has hemp infused into it.
When looking to start using hemp cream, you’ll want to read the ingredients to make sure it has hemp-derived CBD oil, as CBD can be highly beneficial for your skin and reduce under-eye wrinkles.
Hemp cream is an excellent skincare option and can be used all over the face. However, the skin around the eyes is delicate and may require a cream specifically developed for that area. When it comes to treating wrinkles around the eyes, you may want to look for a hemp eye cream, specifically.
How Can Hemp Cream Solve My Eye Wrinkle Problems?
In addition to being a natural product, which offers many benefits on its own, hemp creams, and hemp eye creams provide many benefits that can help fight wrinkles around the eyes and generally improve your skin’s appearance.
- CBD that is often found in hemp cream (make sure it is in yours) has been shown to help increase the production of collagen. Collagen is responsible for giving your skin its smooth and elastic appearance. But, as we age, this production slows down. By using a cream to boost its production, your skin will again firm up, and wrinkles will disappear.
- Many hemp skincare products contain fatty and amino acids. These acids play a role in keeping skin soft and supple. It’s what gives our skin its youthful appearance. By using it around your eyes, you can help the area look younger.
- Hemp-derived CBD and hemp contain vitamins A, C, and E, which are all known to play a role in keeping skin healthy and nourished. By keeping skin nourished, you can help prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.
- Hemp has been shown to help slow the aging process down. Though science has yet to figure out how to stop the aging clock completely, slowing it down is a good alternative.
It is important to note that having a good skin care regimen that includes natural products like hemp cream can go a long way in keeping your skin youthful-looking and wrinkle-free. But, you need to protect your skin in the meantime.
To protect the delicate skin around your eyes, be sure to apply sunscreen before going into the sun. You can also wear a hat and sunglasses to shade your face.
How to Use Hemp Eye Cream
So, you’ve decided hemp cream or hemp eye cream is something you want to try, but how do you use it?
How you use your cream will be depending on the kind you choose. But, in general, you’ll want to clean your face twice a day (morning and night), then apply your hemp cream to your face. If you are using hemp eye cream rather than general face cream around your eyes, apply that very gently. Pat the area under your eyes and around it to apply (some people recommend using one finger only to apply around the eyes).
Be aware that you will not see results right away. You need to carry out your skin routine, including your use of hemp cream every day, to get the best effects and long-lasting results.
Remember, it’s a good idea to read the label on your hemp cream as it may have more specific application suggestions, including if it is best used as a day cream, a night cream, or if it works well as either.
