Minimize Dark Circles+Puffiness (Men & Women)15th February, 2010
- Get adequate sleep – 8 hrs is ideal (at a minimum 6 hrs please!)
- Drink 8-10 glasses of water to hydrate your skin.
- Use day eye-cream with SPF and night eye cream on a daily basis after washing face (all seasons inc. winter)
- Use cucumber slices as they have a soothing effect on your eyes. Easy to apply when relaxed at home. 45-60 mins application is ideal. This is a perfect time to unwind, mediate and relieve stress too.
-Apply cold compresses e.g. freezer packs or damp cloths for 5-10 mins on your temple and eye area as they works great.
-Eat fresh fruits and vegetables as they give you all the necessary vitamins and avoid iron deficiency (which is a cause for dark circles).
-Most importantly, exercise regularly to look young, vibrant and healthy e.g. yoga, walking, biking, running, gym, etc. anything to stay active…P.S. Best way to stay fit is to get or adopt a dog (like I did – lol). More at http://www.torontohumanesociety.com
Have a wonderful day!! XO Carla
