You don’t have to be exhausted to have tired-looking eyes. In fact, several factors, including dehydration, allergies, and sun damage, could be making the delicate skin under your eyes dull, puffy, or dark.
The good news is that you don’t have to live with your tired eyes any longer! Here are several tips to improve your tired eyes that pair nicely with a top-quality eye cream or eye serum to send those eye bags packing.
Get a Massage
Okay, you don’t have to get someone else to do it; you can gently massage the skin around your eyes all on your own. Massage can encourage blood flow, which in turn reduces inflammation and moves toxins away from the area under your eyes.
Massage can also relax those tight muscles surrounding your eye that can make your eyes look tired. If you spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen, on your phone, or just squinting from poor vision, you should give massage a try.
Go For a Polar Plunge
This is an old-fashioned, tried-and-true method to reduce puffiness around your eyes. Submerging your face in cold water, using a cold compress, or even cool cucumber slices can all give a little life to your under eye skin.
If the thought of waking up to a cold-water face bath frightens you, you can opt for an under eye moisturizing patch to plump up tired skin and smooth out fine lines.
Bring on the Moisture
When you are thirsty, you drink more water. Those tired eyes are telling you that your thirst is more than skin deep. Be sure to stay hydrated for your overall health, including the quality and appearance of your skin.
You should also target moisture directly to the skin around your eyes with a quality eye serum or eye cream that you can apply at night to work its magic while you sleep.
Fake it ‘Til You Make it
Makeup can do wonders to hide the fine lines and dark circles that make you look tired even when you’re not. Here are a few tricks to brighten your eyes and make them stand out in a good way:
- Gently pat (never rub!) concealer under your eyes. Look for a shade that blends well with your skin tone, and don’t be scared to try a thicker formula so that it stays put all day.
- Line your lower lashes with a nude eyeliner to balance out any redness and make your eyes appear more open.
- Curl your lashes before applying mascara to open your eyes and draw attention upwards.
- Build a beautiful brow with feathery pencil strokes to frame your face and make your eyes really pop.
