HOW TO GET RID OF PUFFY EYES AND DARK CIRCLES

Are you tired of looking tired? With dark circles and puffy eyes, even if you’ve been sleeping well, it’s almost like they’re there to stay. However, not getting enough sleep isn’t the only explanation, and your daily habits might be the cause. Chronic stress and not drinking enough water can result in dark circles treatment, while excess water retention around the eye can cause puffiness. Fluid accumulation occurs when fluid builds up in the thin layers of tissue surrounding your eyes which causes your eyes and eyelids to swell. Luckily, we have all the solutions to help you look well-rested and refreshed!

GET ENOUGH SLEEP

When we don’t sleep enough, our bodies don’t have time to repair the day’s damage and make us look worse. Think of your skin like a house; a house that accumulates damage every day would need maintenance to remain in good shape. Similarly, our face is always exposed to sun, stress, pollution, and other harsh conditions which causes damage that needs to be repaired. If you aren’t getting enough sleep or have a sleep disorder, the cells in your body have less time to repair themselves throughout the night. This leaves your skin tired and gives you dark circles and puffiness underneath your eyes.

AVOID ALCOHOL AND CAFFEINE

Dark circles and puffiness are a lot more common than people think and can be caused by a variety of factors. Alcohol and caffeine consumption is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to dehydration, which can make these dark circles more obvious and this puffiness more prominent.

AVOID EXCESS SALT CONSUMPTION

While the human body needs a small amount of salt, too much salt can have negative consequences on your body, including bags under your eyes. Bags under your eyes shouldn’t persist for more than a couple of days if you have taken a proactive measure to minimize your salt consumption.

APPLY A BRIGHTENING EYE SERUM

You’ve probably heard a lot about topical Vitamin C, and how it is one of the most potent antioxidants out there. I’m always wary of claims such as these – you hear too many things promising “natural beauty” or “anti-aging skincare” and it’s hard to believe anything anymore. But applying topical Vitamin C is something both men and women can use to make their skin look beautiful, more radiant, and healthy – here’s why.

USE AN EYE MASSAGER

An eye massager is a must-have staple in any skincare routine. These tools are designed to promote blood flow under the eye area and prevent blood from pooling in the capillaries under the eye. The Foreo IRIS is an eye massager that utilizes alternating T-Sonic technology to reduce the visible signs of dark circles, crow’s feet, and bags under your eyes. This device also improves the absorption and efficacy of your eye serum or cream. I also love using the Ecococo Rose Quartz and Jade Face Roller. This face roller has a smaller Jade Crystal roller end for the delicate eye area to enhance natural lymphatic drainage to alleviate puffiness and inflammation. I often keep this roller in the fridge as the cool jade will minimize swelling by constricting blood vessels. It also feels great on tired skin.
