Cut the salt.
Reduce your sodium intake. It’s one of the most common causes of under eye swelling. Celeb make-up artists recommend no salty foods the day before a shoot – and to sleep on an extra pillow to avoid fluid retention build-up and even better add silk case!
Apply chilled, soaked tea bags under eyes for 1 minute to reduce morning swelling. It’ll help shrink blood vessels fast. Alternatively, cool a teaspoon in the freezer and place the back of the spoon on swollen lids with a little pressure to de-crease puffiness.
Invest in a good eye cream.
Including an eye cream in your regimen may be the most important step to looking your youngest. Unlike the rest of your face, the skin around your ageing eyes doesn’t have oil or sweat glands to provide surface moisture. So maintaining hydration is vital. We love Advance SUPERLIFT Eye Contouring Serum because it’s packed with super-hydrating active ingredients designed to nourish and protect the delicate skin around the eye (including the upper and lower eye lid) for a 360-degree approach, to help lift and revive the look of droopy eyes.
Don’t scrub or rub.
Be very careful when removing your make-up. Rubbing roughs up skin's capillaries and can lead to dark circles or make existing ones worse. Squinting also means crow’s feet, so it’s also vital to get regular eye tests at the opticians.
