Wishing you a beautiful holiday season filled with blessings of peace, love and happiness.
I’ve been wanting to share an insert I recently came across in the package of one of my favorite eye creams that I recommend Dr. Brandt DNA Triple Peptide Eye Cream. The illustration (see below pic) suggests how to apply the cream and massage the eye area. I love how Step 1 advises to use smoothing strokes from the inner to outer eye to apply the cream. Then Step 2 suggests using your fingertips to gently massage the lower and upper lids to help drain fluid. And, lastly, Step 3 suggests using your index finger and thumb to press into the upper brow. I think this is a great suggestion for people struggling with puffiness. I think most people, myself included, think of massage only regarding the body and sore muscles but massage is a great benefit to our eye area and even our sinuses.
As I blogged previously, I recommend using an eye cream containing peptides to help build the loss of collagen (see my link above to Dr. Brandt’s DNA cream). But whatever your eye cream of choice, try some gentle massage to help alleviate puffiness.
A few other tricks I use for puffy eyes are: splashing them with cold water; doing 20 jumping jacks to get blood flowing upon waking; and, trying to keep my pillow/head elevated just above my body.
Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what tricks you use to help with eye puffiness.
Warrior tip: Keep cold spoons in the freezer and press them over your lower and upper eyes lids for a quick fix.
