Rejuvenating Eye Cream for Perfect Eyes

Rejuvenating Eye Cream for Perfect Eyes

  1. Do not use heavy creams around the eyes, they can cause puffiness. Eye creams that have a light gel like consistency is preferable.
  2. Elevate your head when you sleep to encourage fluid to drain away from the eye area. Use a comfortable pillow.
  3. Cucumber slices can be placed over eyes to reduce puffiness and soothe tired eyes.
  4. Avoid salty food, this causes fluid retention and can lead to puffy eyes.
  5. Do not rub or apply pressure to the eye area, this can cause the small capillaries in the area to burst causing dark circles.
  6. Eye creams that contain bilberry and eyebright help rebuild the delicate capillaries in the eye area. Look at Rejuvenating Eye Cream ingredients for more details.

Perfect Eyes – Can an Organic Eye Cream help?

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

eyeWhen considering an eye cream, it’s worth bearing in mind that the key problems that it needs address – wrinkles, under-eye bags/shadows and puffiness.  The extent of these problems can vary from person to person.

In the information below we tackle the problem of wrinkles and explain how organic eye cream and skin care can help with the anti-aging process.

The two key contributing factors to wrinkles are the sun and dehydration.  We’re all aware that it’s important to protect yourself from the sun, but did you know that you need to do this in all seasons?  The approach of autumn and winter is no excuse to neglect this. Always apply a sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30 to all exposed areas of the skin.

There are a number of different reasons for skin dehydration.  Smoking, alcohol and caffeine can all dehydrate the skin and make it vulnerable to wrinkling.  If possible cut out, or at least cut down, on these drying habits.

Alcohol-based products and harsh soaps also contribute to skin dehydration.  Opt instead for gentler, moisturising products.  Using an organic eye cream combined with an organic facial cleanser could help you to obtain the best results.

It’s also worth remembering that products that are high in peptide and amino acid complexes are ideal for rebuilding collagen and elastin structures in the skin leading to an intense anti aging effect on your eyes and skin.

Products containing large amounts of organic plant oils are naturally rich in antioxidants. These antioxidants prevent free radical damage caused by environmental toxins and pollutants, ensuring the skin looks and feels younger.

Finally, don’t forget to keep an eye on your diet and exercise programme.  Include many varied fruits and vegetables.  Eating these raw can help to provide your skin with important nutrients.

•    Drink at least 2 litres of water every day.
•    Avoid saturated and animal fats.
•    Get regular exercise.  Your skin gets its nourishment from the blood and exercise helps by increasing the circulation of blood to the skin.
