Do you know how to prevent under eye bags?

How many times have you woken up and found yourself running for your trusted concealer to hide under-eye bags? Those dark circles are more common than you think, and you’re not alone if you have trouble covering them up. However, understanding the causes of these bags may be able to help you prevent them in the future.

The Mayo Clinic states that one of the primary reasons for these unsightly circles is allergies. If you’re noticing puffiness under your eyes as well, you might want to try an antihistamine to reduce the allergic reaction. You may be surprised at how quickly this remedies the issue!

Another main cause of eye bags is your genes. Needless to say, there isn’t much that can be done about hereditary factors. However, skin tone-matching foundation and concealer can help you keep these circles a secret.

Daily Glow recommends eating healthy foods, staying active and getting plenty of sleep to give yourself the best chance to fight off this issue on a regular basis. Try to reduce your exposure to the sun and damaging ultraviolet rays as well to maintain your youthful appearance.

Eye cream 101 – Everything you need to know

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Here's what you need to know about eye cream!If you’re not using a rich eye cream as part of your beauty regimen, you’re doing your peepers (specifically the skin around them) a disservice. Eye creams can stave off any beauty concern around the eyes, whether it’s dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles or puffiness. Here’s what thinks you should know about which products to pick and how to apply them.

First, you’ll need to decide what issues you’re most worried about, then choose your product accordingly. Eye cream for fine lines and wrinkles should have antioxidants or retinol listed in the ingredients. Those meant for dark circles should have illuminating particles and something like vitamin K. De-puffing eye creams will have an ingredient like caffeine in them.

Apply your eye cream in the morning and at night before putting on your moisturizer. You only need a small amount, and it should be applied with your ring finger. The delicate touch won’t disturb the fragile skin in this area. Make sure you get it all the way around your eyes, including on the lids, for maximum results. That’s it!

Tips from Allure to reduce the appearance of puffy eyes

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Tips from Allure to reduce the appearance of puffy eyesThey say that eyes are the window to the soul – so it shouldn’t come as a shock that they are the first feature to signal to the world that we are exhausted. But, according to Allure magazine, the right products, and a few cosmetic tricks, can help downplay puffy eyes and keep you looking completely refreshed.

After a long day, try stopping puffy eyes before they start. The publication suggests donning a cold gel eye mask before lying down to rest. Lucky Chick Soothing Eye Gel Mask can be used hot or cold, and is a great way to revitalize tired peepers.

Next, a bit of eye gel can help reduce swelling associated with exhaustion. But don’t apply too much. According to the news provider, too much product can irritate eyes and make them look worse. However, a small amount of Cellex-C Under-Eye Toning Gel, which reduces dark circles and puffiness caused by late nights, stress and outdoor irritants, can help keep you fresh-faced.

If your eyes still seem a bit tired come Monday morning, a bit of makeup may be your best weapon. Allure recommends swiping a matte eyeshadow, like Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow, that is one shade darker than your skin across your lids and along your lower lash line. The product will detract from the puffiness.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19899804-ADNFCR

Question about Under-eye Puffiness?

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Question: Is there any product that actually reduces under-eye puffiness?

Answer: I like Neova Eye Therapy and Neova Advanced Refining Lift Eye GeleeMurad  Renewing Eye Cream and SkinMedica  Uplifting Eye Serum. Just remember that they are treating the APPEARANCE of puffiness… not addressing the cause of the problem. How much sleep do you get? What medications do you take?

Don’t spend a lot on eye creams. The four I suggested are reasonable priced and as effective as brands costing twice as much!
