The natural eye care treatment.
If eyes are the windows to the soul (and an excellent indicator of overall health) there’s good reason to make sure they’re looking vibrant and healthy this season. And with abundant holiday stressers—plus potentially scant shut-eye—it’s even more important than ever to care for your peepers. Luckily, DIY tricks and natural ingredients can smooth out lines, calm puffiness and tackle the dreaded dark circles.
There is a range of reasons you may experience unsightly red or swollen areas around the eyes, one of which is simply the natural aging process that can lead to weakening and sagging of this sensitive skin. Other possible reasons for undesirable puffiness or redness: water retention, sodium overload, makeup residue, allergies or lack of sleep.
Caffeine: No longer just used for an energy jolt, caffeine is increasingly used topically for its soothing and antioxidant properties, making it a go-to ingredient in under-eye products.
Cucumber: Cucumbers contains antioxidants, which can reduce irritation, and the cooling effect can help reduce swelling. Simply cut a few slices of a chilled cucumber, and place them over the eyes for 10 to 15 minutes.
Witch hazel: This multipurpose can manage inflammation. When applied to the eye area, it may reduce puffiness and redness.
Pure Eye Treatment Gel– Based on seaweed gel, vitamin E and oils the gel (specially if kept in the fridge) will help treating puffiness.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, eyes are actually more like the windows to your liver, with dark circles being a prime indicator you may need to detox. Just as with puffiness or bags, other causes of dark circles include allergies, dietary issues and too little sleep.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C has been found to manage hyperpigmentation, even out skin tone and reduce dark circles. Many skin-brightening products use citrus fruit extracts for their vitamin C content.
Chlorella: This green algae lightens and brightens skin by regulating and decreasing production of melanin, the source of skin pigmentation. When taken as a supplement, chlorella is a gentle detoxifier that can address the root causes of circles or bags.
Peptides: Certain peptides, such as those from copper, restore skin’s collagen and elastin, lifting the under-eye area and preventing sagging and discoloration.
Quick tip: Implement a gentle cleanse—regularly drinking green tea, taking a chlorella supplement, eliminating refined flour and sugar—to remove dark circle–causing toxins from your system.
Vitamin C Serum– Pure vitamie C, vitamin E and Jojoba oil.
Pure Eye Treatment Gel– Based on seaweed gel, vitamin E and oils the gel (specially if kept in the fridge) will help treating dark circles.
It’s inevitable that at some point you’ll start to notice fine lines around the eyes, which is a natural symptom of aging (because of reduced collagen production), sun exposure, severe dryness and environmental stressers.
Plant-based antioxidants: Lycopene from tomatoes, resveratrol from grapes and beta-carotene from carrots all fight free radicals, restoring health and nutrients to the eye area.
Rosehip: To combat crow’s feet, it’s so important to infuse your skin with mega doses of hydration and antioxidants. I recommends rosehip seed oil, which is rich in vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants.
