This may be news to you but eye problems don’t wait for one’s 30’s and 40’s to set in. Thanks to the late nights, imbalanced diets and improper skin care routines that many women have as young adults, dehydrated, tired peepers can make an appearance as early as in one’s 20’s. Here’s a look at the most common eye problems women face in their 20’s and how to get rid of them.
Dark circles
 

Dark circles

Dark rings around the eye area are one of the most dreaded eye problems. Not only are they incredibly stubborn to get rid of, but they can also be the result of a number of factors. Dark circles can be caused due to sleep deprivation, hereditary factors or nicotine impaired circulation. To fix those panda eyes, turn off all gadgets and hit the hay at the same time every night. This will encourage restful sleep through the night and stabilise your body’s circardian rhythm.

Dehydrated eye area

News flash—it isn’t just your cheeks, forehead and hands that need a boost of hydration, it’s your under eye area too! The skin around the eyes is the thinnest and thus, needs to be treated gently. When eye makeup isn’t removed thoroughly and the skin isn’t receiving enough moisture, the under eyes can become dry and rough. To change this, ensure that you drink 2 – 3 litres of water every day and slather a thick layer of cream around the eyes before you sleep at night.

Sagging under eyes
 

Sagging under eyes

Many mistake drooping, saggy skin for a problem that only occurs once they cross 35. However, this isn’t true. When the under eyes are tugged harshly, excess pressure is applied in the area or facial expressions are repeated over time, it causes an indent in the elasticity of the delicate skin and loosens it gradually. To stop saggy skin in the eye area, turn to the Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift Eye Contour Lifter. Along with a cooling applicator, its formula contains InstantLift Complex which tightens the fibres of the skin and makes the eye area firmer.

Tired eyes
 

Tired eyes

If you’re wondering what the cause of tired eyes is, it’s just that—tiredness. Lack of peaceful sleep, a vitamin deprived diet, excess alcohol intake and high stress situations are often the root cause of purple toned lack-lustre eyes as they constrict the blood vessels around the eye area. To make up for that, hydrate your body to balance your alcohol intake and eat foods rich in Vitamin K, E and A like avocados, eggs and oatmeal.

Under eye bags

Sunken eyes aren’t the only eye problem that one can have. In fact, when the under eye reaches the other end of the spectrum and becomes bloated, that’s worrying too. Puffy eyes can be caused by lack of nutrients, oversleeping and fluid retention by excess of salty foods. So to get rid of undereye bags for good and reduce water retention, cut out salt from your diet, sleep for 8 hours and include more Vitamin B with salmon, spinach and walnuts.
