It's important to care for the area around your eyes. The skin around eyes is the thinnest on your face and has no way to hydrate itself since it lacks oil and sebaceous glands. Facial expressions put lots of stress on this delicate skin, causing it to be the first place on your face to show signs of aging. Some of the most common signs are under-eye darkness and puffiness. Dark circles appear when the blood supply underneath the skin becomes visible through the thin under eye skin. Then, there are those puffy bags that makes you look tired, stressed and unhappy. Here are some important tips that will help you diminish their appearance and keep this delicate area looking its best.
Drink more water and herbal teas. The most important tip is to drink lots of clear fluids throughout the day. Dehydration can cause the blood vessels under the eyes to become dilated and swollen thus causing dark circles. We recommend water or herbal teas. For added results, use DermaSilk 90 Second Eye Lift daily for its tightening and lifting benefits.
Eat healthier and lower your salt. Reduce your sodium intake and get a healthy dose of Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin K iron and folic acid. This is found in green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, nuts, berries, seafood, whole grains, avocado, beef, cheese, and green teas.
Get 8 hours of sleep and add a pillow. Lack of sleep can make your skin appear paler, allowing blood vessels to become more visible through the skin, creating the appearance of dark circles. Try sleeping with an extra pillow so that fluid doesn't pool around the eye area at night, which causes bags in the morning.
No rubbing. Try not to rub the area around the eyes.
Nighttime is an especially good time to address this delicate area, as skin hydration and moisturizers are generally effective then. Gently massage DermaSilk Miracle Cream into the skin and around the eyes to improve and enhance their appearance.
