We all lust after perfect, dewy skin with minimal lines and wrinkles, but an area that many of us tend to neglect is the delicate eye-area. The skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin on our bodies and one of the first places to show age and stress. Dark circles, puffy eyes and lines and wrinkles all contribute to an aged look that will make you feel less than confident. Taking care of the delicate skin under and around our eyes should already start in our teens. Here are a few long-term and quick-fix tips to keep your peepers looking bright and beautiful.
Keeping hydrated by drinking at least 6 to 8 glasses a day is essential to prevent puffy and dehydrated skin under the eyes. If you don’t like the taste of plain water spice it up by adding some fresh lemon juice or a few slices of cucumber for a detoxifying water that will leave your skin bright and plumped.
Use an Eye-Cream as Early as your late Teens
We take care of our skin by moisturizing it every day and the skin around our eyes is no exception. However, regular moisturizer does not provide the thin skin around our eyes with the right amount of moisture and a more intense eye-treatment is needed. The Anti-Dark Circle and Ultra-Firm Eye Gel from LaMav is the perfect choice as it contains all natural and organic ingredients, which will not irritate this delicate skin. With daily use every morning and evening you will notice a reduction in puffiness due to hyaluronic acid as well as a reduction in dark circles due to skin-brightening vitamin C. Polyphenols will leave you with a smoother eye-contour and will dramatically reduce lines and wrinkles over time. Make sure to use only a rice-sized grain for both eyes as this is all you need.
Freeze some Teaspoons
For an instant de-puffing effect after a late or sleepless night, this has to be one of the most effective ways to see instant results. Simply place two teaspoons in the freezer overnight and place under your eyes the next morning until they start to feel warm. Voila!
A common skin enemy, yet something some of us still do on a regular basis is smoking. Just remember that you will not see instant damage from smoking, but the skin damage from the harmful free-radicals will show up in ten years or so and leave you looking ten years older than you really are.
Use a Natural Alternative to Botox
The Bio-A7 Firming Eye Cream from La Mav was awarded “Best Eye Cream” of 2010 by Nature & Health Magazine and offers truly dramatic results.Hibiscus esculentus extract has a Botox-like effect and dramatically smooths the skin and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
By following the above tips and tricks you will start to see dramatic results. When you see results you will continue to look after your eyes, because you will feel so good about yourself!
