WHAT CAUSES IT?

The under eye area has the thinnest skin on your face so it’s no wonder it would be vulnerable to an array of bad influences like insufficient sleep, bad diet, over exposure to sunlight, age and even genetics but today we’re focused on SOLUTIONS!

THE REMEDIES

HOMEMADE:

  • Mix 2 tbsp of chickpea flour with 1/2 tsp of pure tumeric powder and 2 tbsp of milk to form a paste. Apply the paste to your clean under eye area and allow to dry. Rinse with warm water to reveal a brighter, glowing skin. Repeat twice a week.

STORE BOUGHT:

  • Eye masks being fit for purpose, certainly house the ingredients you would want to infuse into your tired under eyes. They also produce visible results and feel like a lifetime of relief as your inflamed skin absorbs the cooling agents.

  • Try using a hyaluronic acid eye mask that treats fine lines and wrinkles or any hydrating eye masks. I have used and approve of the www.blaq.co activated charcoal eye masks. I look forward to trying many more and will share as I do.

  • Eye creams are essential as they provide protection and nourishment on a daily basis. Parents, it is your undying duty to inform your teens about skincare! Trust me, they will thank you later! I use the Shzen Perfect Endings Eye cream.

  • DO NOT use oil based or full coverage foundation on the undereye area. Coal tar dye derivitives found in cosmetics can cause discolouring and oils can cause oxidisation making your makeup darken. Instead, trust your under eye concealers to do their job HAN SOLO.
