Puffiness around the eyes is a common phenomenon that can make your face look more worn down and tired. Fortunately, puffiness under the eyes is not an impossible problem, here are a few tricks to make your eyes look fresher and more refreshed.
The classic method: cooling
Bags under the eyes are usually caused by an unhealthy diet, stress, lack of sleep or too little fluid intake. A balanced lifestyle and diet can eliminate them, but unfortunately this is not always feasible, and simple methods such as cooling the swollen area can help.
All you need are two metal teaspoons, put them in the fridge for a while, and then gently press them on the swollen area! If there are frequently bags under your eyes, it’s a good idea to keep two teaspoons in the fridge at all times, so you can use them even on busy mornings. Store them in a box or bag so that they do not come into contact with food!
The innovative solution: Cell Concept Eye-Contour Booster
If you’d like to try a more modern alternative than the above mentioned metal spoon method, then you should pay special attention to this an area in your face care routine and use the Cell Concept Eye-Contour Booster every day!
This serum is very effective against the puffiness under the eyes, it also tightens the skin and smoothes out small wrinkles, making the skin around the eyes look more fresh and youthful.
The effectiveness of the product is due to the following active ingredients:
- Caffeine: an antioxidant and soothing ingredient that improves the microcirculation of blood vessels and neutralises harmful free radicals. It has the added benefit of fading dark circles and reducing the puffiness under the eyes. Its diuretic properties contribute to a smoother complexion. We already know the effects of caffeine from coffee, but when you consume it as a drink, it cannot penetrate the deeper parts of the skin. As a cosmetic, however, it penetrates the deeper layers of the skin without problem.
- Argan stem cell extract: Argan stem cell is known to stimulate the collagen and elastin production in the skin, thereby delaying the appearance of crow’s feet.
- Green tea: a powerful antioxidant like caffeine, it also protects the skin from UVB rays and it is a popular ingredient in products for sensitive skin due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Before using this product, always take time to thoroughly cleanse your face, and then spread out 1-2 drops around the eyes!
Using green tea – tea filters against the puffiness under the eyes
For those who would still like to try a few home remedies in addition to modern cosmetics, it is worth trying the tea filter of green tee.
It’s no coincidence that this active ingredient is also included in our serum, as it is quite effective in removing the bags under the eyes. Soak two tea filters in warm water, let them cool down, then place them over your closed eyes and leave them on for a few minutes.
Quick help: a bit of make-up
If you only have a few minutes to do something about the puffiness under your eyes, you can use a bit of make-up to cover up the puffiness. With the right shade of concealer, you can make the puffiness completely disappear to the naked eye, but remember that it’s just an illusion, the bags will still be there! In the long run, you’ll get much more out of using good quality cosmetics with active ingredients that help these problems, and of course, you should also pay attention to your diet, hydration and getting enough sleep.
