No matter how stylish our clothes are and regardless of how confident our shoes make us feel, if we are sporting these style items with tired looking eyes, dark circles and puffiness, then we will not feel as good as we ought to. Whether we are 28 or 58, none of us want to have tired looking eyes and we all aim to have a fresh-looking face every day of the week.
There are a number of factors that cause tired eyes. Things like smoking, sleep deprivation, migraines and stress are some of the biggest causes of tired eyes. There are a number of things you can do to help get rid of your tired eyes — from natural remedies to the right foods to eat, here are some of the ways you can bring back your fresh face.
GET ENOUGH SLEEP
This is not news and yet, so many of us still don’t get enough sleep which will in turn lead to those pesky looking tired eyes. Make sleep a priority ¬— you will not only look better but sleep will help you function better in every other area of your life.
CONCEAL THE DARKNESS
Dark circles under your eyes detract from that fresh faced look you are going for, so getting rid of that darkness once and for all is the way to go. Using a concealer, the right one for your skin tone, is one easy way of hiding the darkness. You can also try a natural remedy such as a sliced potato — “which has a skin-lightening enzyme called catecholase” — placed on your dark circles for about ten minutes.
If the darkness under your eyes is quite severe and you are sleeping enough and doing everything right, then you might be suffering from an iron deficiency. In that case, going to your doctor to check your iron levels is important for your health.
DEAL WITH THE PUFFINESS
Another way our eyes look tired is when they are puffy and so reducing this puffiness is essential to creating the fresh face we are aiming for. Find products that help deal with puffy eyes — choose a brand that is good for your skin type by asking your beauty therapist to suggest the best one. You can also try natural remedies. A black tea bag that is moist and cooled down will help decrease the puffiness if you put it on your eyelids for five minutes or a bit longer.
You can also opt for rose water as another natural remedy says Ann Marie skin care. You can do so by soaking two cotton balls in rose water, “wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes or so, until chilled. Then remove the plastic and place the cotton balls over your eyes for 5-10 minutes.”
FIND THE EYE CREAM FOR YOU
Anti-ageing eye cream will never spare us from getting wrinkles but applying a good eye cream from a young age is important to giving the skin under your eyes the vitamins it needs to help in giving you that fresh faced look.
These are some of the proven methods to getting rid of tired eyes. Of course, drinking enough water is important to avoiding dehydration and that tired looking face and having a good mascara is a quick way of opening up those lashes and creating that fresh faced look in minutes.
