The skin around your eyes can tell all kinds of stories, and depending on how you treat it some may not be all that good. If you take time to moisturize regularly and keep out of the sun, you may find that your flesh is gracious and maintains a youthful glow. If you're more inclined to play fast and loose with your anti aging skincare regimen, the evidence of your neglect is likely to show up in unflattering ways around your peepers.
Snuff out the puff. Are your eyes so puffy that they're giving away your secret for you? Eliminate puffy eyes with a product that can trigger collagen production and improve skin's elasticity like Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal. Made from a mixture of amino acids, padina pavonica and other anti-wrinkle elements, Elemis can smooth out the skin around your eyes over time and shave years off your face in the process.
The healing power of caffeine. Would you believe that one of the most reliable tricks you can pull out to enliven the skin around your eyes is something you probably use every day? Tea may be your favorite drink, but it can also be a great, all-natural way to reduce puffiness around your eyes.
"The caffeine [in tea] helps shrink the underlying dark blood vessels and forces out some of the liquid that creates puffiness," said dermatologist Ava Shamban to Prevention Magazine.
