Nothing can make your face look old and dull quite like having eye bags on a daily basis. We usually associate the emergence of bags under the eyes with lack of sleep. However, most eye skin problems appear not only because of lack of sleep. Your daily habits and your poor health are also to blame.
In order to overcome eye bags, you will need a few natural remedies. Why don’t you try the following?
1. Activated charcoal
This is often used as a facial mask. It works in removing toxins and impurities in your system. More often than not, toxins and excess salt in your system can make your skin appear puffy. If you want to shrink swollen dermis tissues, you have to remove those toxins and excess salt first.
Activated charcoal is just the right thing to use. It can help get rid of impurities, toxins, poisons and chemicals without being invasive. Just mix the powder up with water and cornstarch and apply it around the eyes.
2. Warm and cold compress
Both warm and cold compresses actually help. If you are suffering from puffy skin condition caused by lack of sleep or too much sleep, washing your face with ice water might help. Cold compress works well in shrinking pores and skin tissues.
On the other hand, if the puffiness under your eyes is caused by poor blood and fluid circulation, you would want to use warm compresses. This will help improve circulation. I suggest using warm tea bags. Just soak two tea bags in hot water. Let it soak up and cool down a bit before placing it over your eyes.
3. Eye cream
There are eye cream products intended for the benefit of eye bags sufferers. Look for the products that have been incorporated with the ingredients Eyeliss, CynergyTK and Babassu.
Eyeliss is an ingredient that contains peptides. Peptides help your skin plump up weak and dying skin cells. It also allows your dermis to produce more collagen. CynergyTK is an ingredient that augments missing keratin in the system. Keratin is vital for the production of collagen. With more collagen, your dermis will remain resilient and resistant to problems. Babassu is what you need to protect your dermis from all kinds of impurities. This also effectively nourishes and hydrates the skin.
4. Mix mashed banana and blended cucumber.
Cucumber has natural skin-whitening benefits. However, it also works in hydrating the skin so you are less likely to experience puffy dermis condition. Banana has natural rejuvenating properties. It can also draw out impurities out of your system. It will help instantly make your eyes appear fresher.
