Caring for the eye area has got to be one of the most asked about subject in skin care today. Puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles top the list in eye area questions. Here are some natural cures and treatments to give you prettier eyes.

  • Puffiness - Under eye puffiness can be cause by a variety of reasons, diet, allergies, or extra fluid in you system. To treat morning puffiness, follow these simple steps:
    • Splash your face with very cold water
    • With a very light touch, tap gently around your eyes to encourage fluid to move away from the eye area.
    • Place a cold compress, such as cucumber slices or potato slices over your eyes and relax for 15 or 20 minutes.

  • Dark Circles - The skin under the eyes is so thin that in some people the blood passing through the tiny veins near the surface shows through, giving the area a bluish or grayish cast or dark circles. Heredity, fatigue, and illness can all make under eye circles more pronounced. Getting plenty of rest and cosmetic camouflage are your two best treatments for dark circles. Be sure to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night if possible.

  • Crow's Feet and Wrinkles - Prevention is the name of the game in avoiding premature wrinkling around the eye area. Wear proper sun protection when ever outside and avoid unnecessary stretching of the skin around your eyes. Use light moisturizing eye area treatments to keep the thin skin around the hydrated.
