My Autumn survival strategy, comfort food and late nights including a glass of wine or two after a long day at work, combined with being surrounded by rumbling radiators are simply not doing wonders for my skin. Everything is drying up, fine lines are appearing and puffy eyes has become an issue. So in the constant search for a miracle (so I can continue my bad habits) I discovered these tips, on how to fight baggy eyes!
According to Ole Henriksen, the guy founding his own skincare brand sharing his name in 1975, taking care of your skin is easy peasy;
Consume less salt in your diet. It’s one of the most common concerns we have about our eyes – that puffy look that makes us look tired, stressed and unhappy. Fortunately, there are a number of things we can do to alleviate it. The first is to reduce your sodium intake. That is one of the most common causes of this condition. In addition, store your ultimate lift eye gel in your fridge and apply a thin layer under the eyes and on the eyelid for added firming and fluid draining benefits.
Drink more water and herbal teas. Dark circles appear under the eyes for three main reasons, either from allergies, lack of sleep or a genetic predisposition. They appear when the blood supply flowing beneath it is exposed through the thin tissue. Since there’s not too much we can do about the key culprits, we still can limit the appearance of darkness under the eyes. The most important tip is to drink lots of fluids throughout the day, either water or herbal teas are best. Staying hydrated will give you a vibrant glow and reduce its appearance. Ole recommends African red tea or Eyebright tea as the preferred antidote for dark circles. For added results, use fresh start eye crème daily for its light diffusing benefits.
Find the perfect eye crème and stick with it for life. The single most important thing you can do for your eyes is to start using an eye crème. Most eye crèmes are too light in texture so make sure that your eye crème is rich and dense enough so that it will form a barrier to reinforce elasticity in the delicate eye area. Also make sure that your eye crème contains essential fatty acids, a key ingredient for nourishing and restoring the skin around the eyes. This is no doubt the best investment you can make for the future of your skin, so start using an eye crème as early as 17 years of age. If you are 17 to 35, try our fresh start eye crème because it has a dense, but not overly rich consistency that is perfect for younger skin. If you are over the age of 35, try our visual truth eye crème with its exceptional lifting and firming benefits.
