Waking up, walking into the bathroom only to look at yourself and see that your eyes are swollen and puffy again is not any way to start the day. Not only is having puffy eyes uncomfortable, but it also is definitely not the desired look you want to try to pull off.
While you know that having puffiness under your eyes along with dark under-eye circles can be hereditary you know for your situation that is not the case. Neither of your parents has the dark, puffy eye look and neither do you, well on most days anyway. So what can you do to improve your puffy eyes instantly?
Before getting into how to remove the puffiness from under your eyes, let’s quickly share a few tips for how to stop them from happening in the first place. As you can imagine what we eat and how we sleep plays a major role in the look and appearance of our skin.
Starting with lack of sleep, it wreaks havoc on our bodies, including our skin and our moods. The added stress on our bodies from the lack of adequate rest causes our skin to look dull and rough. For the skin under our eyes, dark under-eye circles can start forming almost as a gage. The less sleep we get the darker they get, and accompanied with dark-under eye circles comes puffiness.
The first way to eliminate puffy eyes is to get sufficient amounts of sleep. It is recommended that adults have a minimum of 7 hours of sleep every night. If you are getting the correct amount of sleep and are still seeing puffy eyes in the morning, look to elevate your head more while you are asleep.
Our diet also plays a large role in the appearance of our skin and can contribute to unwanted puffy eyes. Sodium in our diets can make our bodies retain water in places that are less than desirable. To stop this from happening, proper hydration is needed.
While it may seem counterintuitive to drink more water when you are retaining water, you are in essence flushing the extra sodium out of your body. This helps restore your body and eliminates the retained water. A great tip for drinking water is Cluster X2. While this looks and tastes like regular water it is much more.
ClusterX2 not only hydrates your body much quicker and with drinking fewer quantities of water, but it also boosts your energy levels. A great routine that many of our clients use is they drink one 8 oz. glass of Cluster X2 (clustered water) first thing every morning. It keeps their skin looking youthful, vibrant and free from any puffiness. It also wakes them up with natural energy, better than any cup of coffee.
Now that you know how to reduce the occurrence of swollen, puffy eyes, how do you get rid of them when you do wake up with them? For this, we are going to use some basic household items and one great cream.
Locate two, ideally four, metal spoons and place them in the refrigerator for five to ten minutes. If you don’t have access to a fridge you can run the spoons under cold water from the faucet or place them in a cup of ice.
Once the spoons have chilled, you will take 2 of the 4 spoons out of the fridge, or ice and place them with the cupped portion of the spoon facing down over your eyes. If possible do this while lying back in a chair. Keep the spoons on your eyes for about 30-60 seconds, then swap with the spoons still in the fridge or ice. Continue swapping the spoons until you start to see an improvement.
Once you have finished with the spoons you will want to dry off your skin and use Skindulgence Eye Cream directly on the areas that are puffy. Dab small amounts of eye cream on the skin around your eyes.
Gently massage the eye cream into the skin. The peptides in the Skindulgence Eye Cream, the botanicals, and the massaging motion you are providing, will help the skin to release the retained water. Daily use of the eye cream will also replenish any lost collagen to the skin around your eyes keeping them younger and more able to release any retained water naturally.
With these simple and easy to follow steps, you can always have the young, vibrant looking eyes your desire without the swollen, puffy eye look.
One last tip that we would like to share is when dealing with the skin in and around your eyes, always be gentle. This skin is very sensitive and being rough or using harsh cleansers can actually make your condition worse.
As always we appreciate all your comments and emails and don’t forget to share this information with your friends so they can also eliminate their puffy eyes and look amazing!
