Even if fine lines and wrinkles have yet to appear you may be struggling with other eye issues such as dark circles, under-eye bags, red eyes, and puffy eyes. These issues can leave you feeling self-conscious and less than your best, but each can be rapidly improved and minimized long-term with the tips below.
Sleep Is Key
Sleep plays a vital role in beauty and whole-body health. If you aren’t getting enough sleep it will show in your eyes. From red eyes to increased puffiness and intensifying any of the eye issues you are prone to. So, for the most proactive approach ensure you get between 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep each night. Sleep on your back if possible, with a beauty pillowcase.
If allergies are the cause of your eye issues, discuss the proper antihistamine with your physician. Even if you don’t have full-blown allergies, you may have mild allergies to dust, dander, and other allergens that can get trapped in pillows. Use a hypoallergenic pillow or a pillow with a cover and wash your pillows at least once per quarter.
Instantly Minimize Puffy Eyes
If you wake up with red, swollen, or puffy eyes it’s time to head to the kitchen. To soothe inflammation, lay for 5 to 10 minutes with cold cucumber slices, chilled tea bags, frozen spoons, or a reusable gel mask over your eyes. Use lubricating eye drops to soothe red eyes.
Instantly Minimize Dark Circles
If you wake with dark, or darker than usual, under-eye circles, use a cold compress as suggested above. This may only provide minimal improvement, so it’s time to turn to makeup. Identify an under-eye concealer or eye brightener to use daily or as needed. Quality is key, as concealers can clump. Eye brighteners have a bit of shimmer to reflect light and minimize how dark your under-eyes appear.
Instantly Minimize Under-Eye Bags
Under-eye bags are more common as we age and most apparent first thing in the morning. To minimize the risk of fluid retention, keep an eye on your salt and alcohol consumption, hydrate with at least 64 ounces of water per day, and sleep on your back to prevent fluid from building up under your eyes. To drain fluid, elevate your head with two pillows while using a cold compress. For the most proactive approach strengthen your under-eye muscles and stimulate collagen production which we will discuss below.
A Proactive Approach To All Eye Issues
For the most proactive approach to all eye issues, we suggest using the Eye Rejuvenator once a day for 60 to 90 seconds per eye. This microcurrent beauty treatment will increase blood flow and accelerate natural collagen production. The titanium tip heats to your body temperature, so it feels good too. Apply your favorite MBK eye serum first to easily glide the tip under your eye and above your eyelid. In just 7 to 10 days you will notice an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, and under-eye bags. You can also use the Eye Rejuvenator for fine lines around your upper and lower lip, as well as for firming your jowl area.
If you are looking to boost your eye treatment, consider using an under eye mask with ionized active ingredients that are ideally suited for use with microcurrent devices. The Skin Recharge BioCellulose Eye Masks from MBK combines bio-cellulose technology with a unique active ingredient complex that provides the fatigued area around the eyes with intensive moisture and anti-aging peptides. This biomimetic formula, carefully selected by Brigitte Kettner‘s method, specifically targets wrinkles, crow‘s feet, and dryness-induced lines, minimizing them in the area around the eyes. It helps to combat the sagging
the effect, improving resistance to gravity‘s influence
The eye pads are ideal for a weekly exclusive care routine or just for now and then as needed (for example, as a freshness treatment on the go). When applied several times a week, the area around the eyes will appear more radiant and refreshed. Thanks to its ionized active ingredients, the BioCellulose eye mask is ideally suited for use with an ultrasonic or microcurrent device.
