Consider this: We blink 20,000 times a day, strain our eyes staring into smartphone and laptop screens for easily over 12 hours on a daily basis, it’s no wonder that aging signs around the eyes are a major concern for both women and men alike. If you aren’t already showing your peepers an extra helping of TLC, it’s time to brush off the dust and cobwebs on those windows with these eye beauty tips, to put the twinkle right back where they belong.
Best concealer for dark eye circles
Dark eye circles tend to add years, making one tired and sickly looking. Our undereyes are riddled with a web of tiny capillaries which can lead to dark circles when they become leaky. As red blood cells leak from these capillaries into the surrounding skin, a dark discoloration is formed when the haemoglobin in them are being broken down.Furthermore, thinning of the overlying skin and hollowing of the undereyes worsen the look of this darkened hue. Some may be inflicted with inherent skin pigmentation while others may be predisposed with exacerbating factors such as eczema and chronic sinusitis that lead to constant or habitual rubbing of eyes.
As if choosing the right foundation is not tough enough, picking the right concealer to suit your specific needs is another mission all on its own. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye is the best-selling product of this cult brand endorsed by celebrity makeup maestros in Tinseltown. It has a goopy, viscous texture which surprisingly, doesn’t cake or look weird on your skin. It’s so intensely pigmented that you’ll only need a pinprick of product to cover even the gnarliest undereye circles that can be spotted from a mile. Finishing with a slight sheen which you can dust with a little bit of powder if you’re going for something more natural, or keep it as it is for an absolutely radiant look.
Best bet for puffy eyes
The skin over the undereye areas are thinner than the rest of our facial skin to begin with, and skin laxity is a common issue for patients over the age of 30 when our natural stores of collagen and elastin begin to deplete. This can lead to the development of undesirable puffy eyes or early eye bags formation.
Genius Eye FIRMx is your best bet to improve upon puffy eyes by utilizing Exilis Lift mono-polar radiofrequency technology to deliver skin tightening cum eye opening benefits, as well as hyaluronic acid fueled by adenosine extracts delivered via sonophoresis to recharge tired aging periorbital skin cells. Exilis treatment is ideal for patients seeking a safe, non-invasive method of treating mild to moderate skin laxity. By using trial and tested RF waves as an energy source to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin, it helps to add volume to the skin, with skin tightening for a smoother and more youthful appearance after a series of 5 to 6 treatments done at 3 to 4 weekly intervals.

Best lunchtime fix for insta-fresh makeover
Lunchtime beauty fixes are no longer limited to a quick blow dry or mini pedi-mani, with fuss free photo-facials and quick trips to the doctor’s office filling up fa
st in the agenda of the savvy urbanite who’s alw
ays on the go. The best insta-fix to freshen up tired looking peepers without tell-tale signs of having the “works done”nor downtime is Revitalift Eye, the beauty aficionado preferred method to address undereye woes caused by aging and stress. The procedure is simple and fast. Tiny drops of pure hyaluronic acid are skillfully infused into the skin and distributed evenly throughout the treatment area via a series of microinjections, resuscitating tired-looking skin by restoring its physiological function and optimizing cellular activity. Improvements are apparent even after the first treatment, but a primary course of 3 to 6 sessions done at 3 to 4 weekly intervals is often recommended in order to build up your skin’s reserves for optimal bio-revitalization and longer-lasting results.
“The use of fillers for the undereyes is a tricky procedure that require both steady hands and a sound knowledge of the peri-orbital anatomy.” Explains Dr. Kenneth Lee, medical director of the SW1 Clinic. “It is always better to ‘under-correct’ the volume deficit and improve it step-wisely with repeated sessions rather than to ‘over-fill’, converting the undereyes hollowing to undesirable sausage-liked ‘eye bags’ deformity.”
