We don’t talk enough about the thin delicate skin around your eyes nor do we give this area the care and attention it deserves. Then isn’t it obvious to notice dark circles, eye bags and fine lines on every other girl you meet, including the one you see in the mirror every day? If you want to get rid of the three problems we just mentioned maybe it’s time we put an eye care routine in place. It’s simple it’s easy and anyone can do it!
- Get your zzzz’s
- Drink your tea and use it too
- Give your devices a break
- Protect ‘em with sunglasses
- Invest in a good eye cream
Get your zzzz’s
It is okay to pull a few late-nighters but don’t make it a habit. The most basic yet important step to bright and beautiful eyes is getting enough sleep. Try to get a minimum of 7 to 9 hours of undisturbed sleep every night. Wear an eye mask if it helps you sleep better, it will also prevent you from rubbing your eyes.
Drink your tea and use it too
A not so well kept secret, this one works very well for puffy eyes and many celebrities swear by it. Simply put used tea bags in the refrigerator to let it cool. Place them on your eyes and let the caffeine from the tea work its magic in de-puffing those tired eyes.
Give your devices a break
If you can’t go to bed without your phone your eyes are definitely going to take a toll. Break the habit of checking your phone the first thing in the morning as well as the last thing at night. After spending all day in front of different screens, sun, pollution and lot more it deserves a few hours of rest.
Protect ‘em with sunglasses
We all know the harmful effects of sun on our skin, the under eye area is more delicate and needs to be protected well. When stepping out in the sun always wear your sunglasses, the bigger the better!
Invest in a good eye cream
Just like your face needs a night cream and day moisturiser, your eyes need some gentle nourishment too. The Dermalogica Ultra smoothing Eye Serum is fortified with red, brown algae and chamomile to fight pigmentation, reduce puffiness and fine lines to make your under eye area look smoother and brighter.
