Under-eye bags are something which can affect people of all ages, skin tones and skin types and can be dealt with using various products. However, when you’re prone to under eye bags AND the signs of ageing have started to appear, it can be trickier to deal with as the skin becomes paper. We’ve put together five tips to help stop your under eye area from making you look old before your time.

Don’t Over-Conceal

There are plenty of color correcting concealers which can help to mask the appearance of dark circles. However, once your skin starts to thin with age, adding heavy concealer to your under eye can drag the whole area down, making it look far worse. Opt for a mineral powder instead, which will give buildable coverage without the weight.

Use a Tightener

Using a product to tighten the skin under the eye will not only reduce the appearance of fine lines, but it will also help to minimise the size of your eye bags in the process. Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex will help with eye are concerns such as wrinkles, crows feet, puffiness, dark circles due to hyperpigmentation and skin sensitivity due to dehydration.

Get Cool

Using something cooling on the area under your eyes is a simple way to reduce both dark circles and puffiness. An old-fashioned method is to refrigerate two teaspoons and place them over the eyes – if you haven’t got time for this, we recommend Dermalogica UltraCalming Mist which quickly relieves inflammation and discomfort, helping skin recover from damage and lipid barrier breakdown.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Fine lines and wrinkles are usually massively exacerbated by dryness, so it stands to reason that adding moisture will help. Additionally, sweeping massage gestures from the inner corner of the eye to the outer is a good way to reduce accumulated fluid from the puffy under eye area, so applying Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex with self-massage will help with both issues.

Pack a Punch

Sometimes, you need to just reach for the most powerful product you can find to hit all of the issues at once and in this case, Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift is the product you need. It’s a high-performance eye treatment and masque that energises skin to reduce visible signs of ageing, dark circles and puffiness, all in one powerful treatment.
