So under the behest of the salesperson in Lord & Taylor who quite blatantly pointed out your under eye circles and insisted that they were a sign of dehydration, you purchased a $90 bottle of eye serum. Despite the promise that applying a few drops daily would make you look up to a decade younger within a matter of weeks, cosmetic reps in every department store you walk into are still calling out the fine lines, dryness, etc. around your eyes two months later. Why? Because the product you purchased (a) contains a bunch of ingredients that are great for just about everything else except the reason you purchased it, or (b)the ingredients it contains are very effective against your current condition but are not concentrated enough to make a noticeable difference. Save yourself some time and money by using any of the following surefire ways to keep that sensitive area around your eyes looking young, fresh, and wrinkle free.
This age old method is still one that has been beaten to death for a reason: it works. Sleeping with slices over your eyes is the closest you can get to sleeping with your face submerged in a basin of water, and what better way to hydrate your skin than with water? This trick is guaranteed to reduce puffiness.
It may feel slimy at first, but once you get used to it you'll actually feel the toxins draining from your skin and the fresh moisture seeping in. Another trick to reduce not only puffiness, but that dark hue you get when you are stressed or haven't gotten enough sleep.
Petroleum jelly is the #1 product you can use for your eyes; the vitamin E rejuvenates skin, fighting against fine lines and keeping you looking healthy. Tip: use it in place of your nightly makeup remover. You will start seeing results in a matter of days.
