If you look in the mirror in the morning and you’re the picture of exhaustion, the guilty culprit is usually your puffy and tired-looking eyes. Late nights and other contributors quickly take up residence under the eyes in the form of bags, sagging skin and wrinkles. Well, it’s time to find out how you can revive your peepers. Here are four of the worst causes for under eye wrinkles and tired eyes - and instant solutions for fixing them:
TOO MUCH SALT OR ALCOHOL
You may love your salt-rimmed margarita cocktails but they’re wrecking the condition of your skin. Twin villains salt and alcohol cause the body to retain water that leads to puffiness everywhere including under the eyes. Too much sodium in the diet is really bad for the eyes and skin in general. It not only causes puffy, tired eyes but can trigger breakouts.
LACK OF SLEEP
According to the Mayo Clinic insufficient sleep is one of the worst causes of under-eye bags. Not getting enough sleep dilates the blood vessels under your eyes, leading to swelling and dark circles. Tip: Switch off electronic devices in the bedroom and keep your bed a restful place for sleep. Where soft eye pads to block out light and prevent tugging or pressure against delicate skin. Lavender essential oil and diffusers are great way to promote relaxation.
Although inadequate sleep is usually avoidable, growing old is not. As we age, the tissues around the eyes start to weaken. The delicate skin in the eye area grows less elastic and begins to sag, and thin leading to more prominent eye bags and droopy, crepey skin. Its in important to always wear an eye serum and eye cream around the eye area for prevention and correction. Eye serums and creams can help stimulate collagen and promote firmer skin.
TOO MUCH SUGAR
Not only do you have to go easy on the saltshaker, it’s best to put away the sugar bowl, too. Sugar causes inflammation all over the body, including your complexion. Because the skin under the eyes tends to be thin, any inflammation or swelling is especially noticeable in this area. Sugar also is a big cause of wrinkles and sagging skin.
