What’s the problem?
One (or all) of three problems; darkness under the eyes, wrinkles around the eyes and bags/puffiness.
- Darkness – A very light touch of brightener like the YSL Touche Eclat or the Garnier Tinted Roll-On will disguise darkness in a second. Just apply a tiny bit and use your ring finger to pat the product on the area until it blends in with the rest of your skin. Dropping a few brightening eye drops into your eyes can also help them look brighter on rough days. Just don’t use them daily.
- Wrinkles -Apply a bit of Nanoblur or Dermalogica Powerfirm under your eyes (swipe on and pat it in) to temporarily fill in and blur fine lines around your eyes.
- Bags + Puffiness – Grab an ice cube or ice pack, dampen it and apply it to the eye area for a few minutes to shrink bags. Ice cubes are better as you can move them around the eye to encourage a bit of lymphatic drainage.
- Darkness – Whilst darkness is usually hereditary, you can lift excess darkness by using a sunscreen and skin lightener under your eyes every day.
- Wrinkles – You can’t fade all wrinkles but you can help prevent future ones and ease current ones by using sunscreen under your eyes as well as either a retinol or vitamin C product. Also remember to wear sunglasses to stop yourself from squinting outdoors. It makes them worse over time. Remember that a lot of wrinkles can be improved by simply moisturising your eye area twice every day.
- Bags + Puffiness – Bags, usually made up of fatty deposits, are impossible to shift without surgery. However you can ease their appearance by removing any excess puffiness. You can use an ice pack, cut down on salt in your diet, increase your potassium intake and drink more water. You can also use eye care containing caffeine to deflate bags.
