When you have not been getting enough sleep, it shows all over your face in the form of tired, puffy eyes. This is a common skin care problem and, unfortunately, they are not always caused by an actual lack of sleep. Puffy eyes are a result of water retention and they can be caused by a number of factors, including pollution, allergies, or even a reaction to medication. If you find that you constantly look like you’ve been up all night, there are a few things you can do to avoid those bags under your eyes.
Use an Eye Boost Serum to Treat Puffy Eyes
If you notice you consistently have dark, puffy circles under your eyes, it is time to invest in a product to help reduce them. An eye boost serum can help reduce water retention around your eyes and also lighten the appearance of dark circles. For best results, use it in the morning, after you have washed your face but before you put on your makeup or any other moisturizers and serums. By applying it first, you ensure that it has the opportunity to penetrate beneath the skin and create a brighter appearance for your eyes.
Wear Sunglasses Every Time You Go Out
One of the most common causes of dark and puffy eyes, in addition to lack of sleep, is exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays. Many people do not apply sunscreen around their eyes because they don’t want to get it in their eyes but, in fact, sun protection for the skin around your eyes is essential. The skin in that area is very thin and very prone to sun damage. For this reason, it is a good idea to find sunglasses big enough to cover your entire eye area. You may also want to find an eye boost serum that uses ingredients with an extra sun protection factor.
Watch What You Eat
Like many skin conditions, dark and puffy eyes have as much to do with what you put in your body as with what you put on your skin. In order to get the best results from your eye boost serum and other products, you must focus on skin-friendly nutrition. Avoid foods with high salt content or with a lot of artificial sweeteners, as these ingredients cause you to retain water and contribute to puffiness around the eyes. Although it may sound counterintuitive, you also want to drink a lot of water to flush out impurities that can lead to dark circles under your eyes.
If you are getting plenty of sleep but still look exhausted every day, consider using an eye boost serum daily along with sun protection and a skin friendly diet. To see products offered by Genovo Skincare to address these issues, click here.
