Every once in a while, whether we're running short on sleep or having a strenuous day, unattractive dark circles can form beneath our eyes. While most times they're temporary, sometimes they stick with us if we aren't able to give our body the care and rest it deserves.
If you're frequently plagued with paunchy bags and dark rings around your gaze, follow these quick tips to ensure your eyes shine their brightest:
1. Get some rest. Sleep promotes circulation, including blood flow to your face and eyes. Additionally, catching those Zs face-up with your head slightly elevated, by using a pillow or headrest, enables the blood to flow downward. When you sleep face-down, fluids may come to rest in the eye area, adding to the sag.
3. Apply cold. Cooler temperatures help to reduce eye puffiness. Try to use chilly cucumber slices or a cold washcloth to look refreshed and revitalized.
4. Purchase the right skin care beauty products. The skin on your face is sensitive, and this is especially true of the eye area. Specialized products, such as Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal serum, will help you treat tired eyes without adding irritation.
There's no reason to live with those annoying bags! Treat the windows to your soul just right and you're bound to always look your best, even on your longest days.
