A lot of celebrating leads up to your wedding day, from showers to bachelorette parties, and don’t forget the rehearsal dinner. You’ll be sipping champagne and staying up late, but you still have to look your best! The skin on your eyelids and under eyes is perhaps the thinnest and most sensitive skin on your whole face, so this week we asked the skincare experts at beautypress.com to give us the skinny on the best ways to avoid eye bags and dark circles.
The skin around the eyes is prone to lines because it’s so thin and is constantly moving. Sleeping with your face buried in your pillow will inevitably create swelling and bags, and stressful endeavors (like wedding planning), iron deficiency, certain foods and, of course, alcohol can dehydrate the skin around the eyes and make it appear darker or more swollen.
Their advice is to “give your eye area a gentle massage every day, stimulating the blood in the skin around the eyes and avoid fragrance infused eye and face creams because they can cause irritation and redness”. For persistent dark circles, try a serum like Professional Solutions DCX Dark Circle Under Eye Serum.
Key benefits include:
- Reducing the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines
- Antioxidants that help reduce the presence of Free Radicals
- Soothing and rejuvenating effect with Arnica
