There are so many things to love about the winter months! The season of giving brings so much joy, with festivities to look forward to and time well spent with family and friends. Despite so much warmth, this is often offset by the cold temperatures that cause havoc for our skin at a time when we want to look and feel our absolute best.
One thing that you might notice, in particular, is the appearance of tired eyes. This is something that many people battle with year-round, but your symptoms can sometimes worsen at the end of the year.
As we age, youthful collagen and elastin proteins that are responsible for the structure and texture of the skin gradually deplete. Not only that but the natural shape of your face can further a recessed look to the eyes. Sunken tear troughs and declining levels of soft tissue in the face can exaggerate dark circles, while dilated blood vessels can lead to puffy eyelids.
My Top Tips
The first thing to consider is how you sleep at night. Try raising your head with an extra pillow to discourage fluid from accumulating beneath the eyes. This may even improve the quality of your sleep, allowing you to enjoy the recommended 7-9 hours of rest each night, therefore positively impacting your immune system, your mood and your productivity.
Another way you could be unknowingly adding to your tired eyes is by overworking your skincare products. Use only an amount of eye cream the size of a grain of rice so as not to irritate the eyes and apply around the eye using your middle finger to very gently tap the product into the skin – we want to avoid stretching and pulling this delicate skin.
