It’s an area of the face that ages us the most: Wrinkles, droopy eyelids and puffiness around the eyes.
So what can you do about it?
Before they come to see Dr. Rosenberg, a lot of people try the cosmetic procedural route.
While treatments like laser resurfacing, chemical peels and even eyelid surgery can tighten the skin around the eyes…
They’re also expensive, risky, and painful.
So if you’d prefer a less extreme approach, try these unusual eye care tips instead:
1. Tea bags to soothe puffiness
Wearing tea bags over your eyes can seem such a beauty cliche. But there is some truth to how it works…
Tea contains antioxidants and caffeine. These can both reduce inflammation and tighten the skin around the eyes.
2. Massage your eyes with almond oil
Almond oil is rich in vitamin E, which can help moisturize and nourish the delicate skin around the eyes. Vitamin E can also improve blood circulation and reduce dark circles.
Gently massage a few drops of almond oil on your eyelids and under your eyes every night before bed.
3. Blink more when using digital devices
Staring at screens for long periods can cause dry eye, eye strain, and blurred vision. This is because you tend to blink less when you are focused on a device, and miss out on eye lubrication.
So try following the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look away from the screen at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds, and blink 20 times.
4. Wear sunglasses on cloudy days
Sunglasses are not just a fashion accessory, they’re also a barrier from harmful UV rays that can damage your eyes.
Choose sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection and cover your entire eye area. Wear them whenever you are outdoors, even on cloudy or overcast days.
5. Try eye rolling “eye yoga”
Eye yoga is a practice that stretches out and strengthens your eye muscles, like stretching your body on a yoga mat. It can also improve your focus, vision, and eye coordination.
Some examples of eye yoga exercises include rolling your eyes clockwise and counterclockwise, looking up and down, left and right, and diagonally, and focusing on a near and far object alternately.
