'Look into my eyes, look into the eyes, the eyes, the eyes, not around the eyes, don't look around the eyes, look into my eyes! Now make sure you use these eye buys and you will wake up looking utterly fabulous dahling! 3... 2... 1... and you're back in the room (looking gorgeous of course!).
A sure fast way to wake up looking gorgeous is to look after the area around your eyes (no hypnotism required). You can paint your face a thousand colours and apply many a texture but if the area around the eyes looks tired, dry or has dark circles your face will always look as dull as dishwater. The eyes are a window to one's soul and can betray one's age. So, lest we forget them. Fear not though, for with these simple D-EYE-Y tips and key eye buys you will be smizing (google it...)in no time! Your new eye care regime starts here!
Be a star pupil and keep the eye area clean, hydrated and supple. No matter how tempting it is to go straight to bed after a long night out, you must remove your make up. Not only will this give your skin a rest but you won't wake up with dirty pillows either.
A good all-rounder is Guinot Eye Make up Remover This beauty is grease free and is gentle enough to be used by contact lens wearers, offering soothing and purifying benefits to tired eyes. It removes waterproof makeup and with ingredients such as cornflower it also detoxifies, tones and softens the eye area. Best of all there is no film or greasy residue left. Looking for an organic alternative? Try Klorane Eye Make up Remover Sensitive This also uses cornflower power to decongest, de-puff and calm, thus ideal for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers. Both are formulated to a PH to that of tears... tears of joy!
Annoyingly the body likes to retain water, so refrain from salt, get those zzz's in and do not get stressed as this causes tissues to swell and creates fluid build up around the eye area. Thankfully, caffeine helps shrink blood vessels and flushes liquids that create puffiness. So, take a caffeine hit from Fresh Black Tea Age-delay Eye Concentrate and get rid of those dark under eye circles and deflate that swelling.
Around the age of 40, the skin loses elasticity and thins, looking tired and permitting blood vessels to peek through revealing those dreaded dark eye circles. Dark circles generally arise from sun damage, allergies, irritation and thread veins/capillaries which show through the skin's surface. Try to look to eye creams with SPF, without which, dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles can be exacerbated.
An ace eye cream with lashes of SPF is Paula's Choice Resist Anti-aging Eye Cream. Packaged in a tube it protects its ingredients from light, air, and is très portable. It will relieve inflammation and redness and give a powerful dose of hydration along with a cocktail of anti-ageing ingredients to bring your eye area into the next dimension. This beauty has ingredients to improve damaged skin barriers and slow excess melanin which is a cause of dark circles. This cream has a rich consistency so use very little and warm the product with your fingers before applying. It is fragrance-free and non-irritating.
If you do not like a rich consistency try Hylamide Subq Eyes which has a consistency closer to serum, choc-full of ingredients to actively target ﬁne lines, crow's feet, puﬃness and dark circles. Keep it in your sights and it won't let you down.
