Ditch Bags Under The Eyes For Good

If there is one thing that frustrates most women, it has to be trying to deal with bags under the eyes. Unfortunately, the skin around our eyes starts to sag as we age, which is a sign of ageing that we can’t stop completely. Not only that, though, but bags under the eyes can be made worse due to a variety of factors, including tiredness. Thankfully, there are a few things that can be done to reduce their appearance and help you feel a lot more comfortable about your look. Read on to find out more!

Get Some Sleep

First of all, the best way to combat those pesky bags under your eyes is to combat your tiredness. So, it could be necessary to work on your sleep. If you can’t remember the last time you replaced your mattress, you might want to visit a site like mattress-guides.net to find a comfortable one that will meet your needs. You should also consider getting into a good bedtime routine so that your mind and body can wind down and prepare for sleep. When you wake up, you should feel a lot more refreshed, and your skin will look better as a result.

 

Use Tea Bags

Sure, tea tastes great, but have you ever thought about using it on your face? Probably not, but it’s worth doing! There’s caffeine in tea, and if you apply tea bags underneath your eyes, the caffeine will help to rejuvenate the skin and reduce the appearance of any bags and dark circles. Green tea is the best type for this as it has some anti-inflammatory properties. Simply steep the tea bags for a few minutes in warm water. Take them out and wait until they have cooled to apply them to your face.

 

Get Your Sinuses Checked

Sometimes a problem with the sinuses can cause bags under the eyes. Thankfully, your doctor should be able to advise you on the best medication to treat this if you go and see them. They might suggest that you try to clear your sinuses with a neti pot, but most of the time a simple nasal inhaler is used to clear the airways. Once your sinuses begin to clear, your eye bags should, hopefully, start to reduce.

 

Drink Plenty

When we don’t drink enough, our skin can become quite dehydrated. When this happens, wrinkles, blemishes, and dark patches are a lot more noticeable on the face. It can also increase the appearance of bags under the eyes. So, make sure you drink plenty throughout the day and especially just before you go to bed. The body loses quite a bit of water while we sleep, but drinking plenty before bedtime ensures you don’t wake up with a dry face.

 

Look For Eye Creams With Retinol

Eye creams, like the ones on cosmopolitan.com, can also help reduce bags under the eye. When you are looking for a new one, make sure it contains retinol. This ingredient is very close to vitamin A and can help the skin look smooth and youthful.

There comes a point where we really have to start thinking about our skin routine. Did you know that as soon as you hit 21 your skin is classed as “mature”. Shocking, right? Your skin might feel drier, your foundation might appear patchy on your face, you might have sudden blotches or red marks, or even oily, shiny patches that can ruin a good photo. So when your skin does hit its “old age” what can you do to keep it looking at feeling youthful? Switch up your moisturiser for something that targets dry skin? Get more facials? Discover the best bb cream for combination skin? With so much to think about and so many products to choose from it can be difficult to know where to begin. But don’t worry.

Read on for some skin maintenance tips and beauty ideas that will keep your skin looking as young as you feel!

Avoid those long, hot showers!

We all like a hot, steamy shower to help wake us up in the morning – it’s almost as crucial as a cup of coffee. But you might want to swap those long hot showers, for shorter, cooler sprays if you want to keep your skin looking and feeling soft and young. Hot showers strip your skin of their essential oils and effectively dry out your skin by stripping it of its moisture. So keep the shower cool and keep it to about ten minutes.

 

Look for the signs

Unsure if you need to exfoliate? Or need to moisturise more? Take a finger and lightly scratch your skin, if it leaves a white mark then your skin is not only dry but crying out for you to rid it of all those dead skin cells. Get yourself exfoliated and moisturised, pronto.

 

Keep it simple

When it comes to beauty products for your face, the simpler the better. Steer clear of products that contain perfume, colour, bubbles and anything that claims to be anti-bacterial. All these will irritate you skin and might make blotchy red skin look angrier.

 

Want soft hands and feet?

If your hands are dry and your feet not much better, then this little trick will help. On an evening before bed, slather lots of moisturiser on your feet and hands, then cover with a pair of light fabric gloves/socks. When you wake in the morning, your skin will feel incredible.

 

Get sweaty

Surely getting all hot and sweaty will clog your pores right? Wrong! Did you know that working up a sweat is a natural way to eliminate the toxins that build up under your skin. And, regular exercise gets your blood pumping – which means better circulation and blood flow – which is good for your skin!

Skin destroyers

We know the dangers of tanning and UV rays but so many of us take the risk. If you want youthful looking skin then you must steer clear of these infamous skin destroyers: tanning beds, smoking and sunbathing. All of these age your skin prematurely!
