Barely a week goes by without a new stunning beauty shot of a celebrity we grew up with looking like a million dollars. Flawlessly perfect, the rest of us are left squinting at the photo and wondering if they’ve had a brush with the some digital editing software, got a great surgeon or secretly stumbled on the Elixir of Life. Young teens feel pressured to look exactly like their media heroes; everyone else is smoothing down the crinkles and wishing they looked like the teenagers without their make up on. Fighting off disappointment in our ‘real’ looks can put a huge downer on our self-esteem and confidence.
One area that naturally takes more punishment is the delicate area around the eyes; too little sleep, not enough water and too much caffeine causes puffiness and fine lines. The natural mobility of the face will produce wrinkles and laughter lines over the years, which can be exacerbated by dehydration and tiredness. It’s worth taking extra time to give these areas some natural support to boost appearance and elasticity; chilled, moist green tea bags used as compresses, cucumber slices laid on closed eyes or frozen vegetables wrapped in a cloth can perk up eye skin quickly.
It’s true that how we feel about ourselves is the most important thing, rather than how we are seen from the outside – very few of us rely on our looks for our career after all – but feeling good about our skin and body has a positive effect on mental health and outward confidence. Taking care of ourselves through mini pamper routines, better eating, reducing salt intake and protecting the skin from the elements – particularly sun and wind – helps build an inner sense of worth that is reflected in our looks. If we are happy, it shows in our looks, so it is worth investing time and effort in both.
5 Quick Tips for Beautiful Eyes.
- Use Age Reversal Eye Cream to plum up fine lines and pamper the eye area.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Wear sunglasses to prevent wrinkles developing & stop UV damage.
- Avoid under eye bags by sleeping well and for long enough.
- Reduce salt and caffeine intake.
If the look of your eye area skin is getting you down, consider an eye treatment to lift your spirits and divert attention away from them. Having your eyebrows shaped and your lashes tinted is the perfect way to indulge in some pampering and make you feel good about your looks too.
