Your eyes can be your biggest beauty asset. However, the delicate skin under your eyes can be one of the first places to show signs of ageing as well as stress and fatigue. A few simple techniques can help you glow with youth.
Lightly massaging the pressure points around the eye can improve the effectiveness of your eye care
Daily decongestion ritual: perform this massage in the morning before applying Divine Eyes to increase its effectiveness. Start at the inner eyebrow and move outwards, and then do so again from the inner eye moving outwards.
Choose products made specifically for eye skin and always avoid using harsh products around the eyes.
Apply an eye contour cream daily that is tailored to your needs to protect and rejuvenate the skin.
Use cotton balls when removing eye make-up to avoid excess tugging and pulling.
Wear large sunglasses that protect both your eyes and the skin around them from UVA and UVB rays when in the sun.
Drink eight to ten 8 oz. glasses of water per day to maintain the skin's elasticity.
Drink fresh juice made from a combination of celery, lemon, spinach and cucumber to flush your body with vitamins, minerals and enzymes and reduce puffy eyes.
Reduce your salt intake. Salt can lead to water retention and exacerbate under eye puffiness.
Get plenty of rest. Not sleeping enough can cause skin to become gaunt.
Elevate your head while sleeping. Sleep on your back and try adding an extra pillow to drain fluid from under your eyes.
