SkinViva’s Dr Sharan Uppal gives her top 6 tips for refreshing the appearance of tear troughs.
Tear troughs are the delicate area beneath the eye which can become dark shadows or wrinkly eyebags.
Experienced Aesthetic Doctor Sharan gives her advice:
Get plenty of rest –
Getting a good night’s sleep is essential if you want to look fresh and alert. When we sleep, our body gets chance to repair itself and this includes the area around the eyes. To avoid bags and dark circles, always make sure you are getting at least 7 hours a night.
Drink lots of water –
Hydration is key if you want to remain youthful around the eyes. Nothing is better for your skin than water. Making sure that you drink around 2 litres (8 glasses) of water a day will ensure that your under- eye area always looks refreshed.
Invest in good skin care –
As we age, our skin starts to lose more moisture, which can make you look tired and run down. Using a good quality eye cream before bed will give your under- eye area a moisture boost overnight, leaving you with a dewy complexion that lasts all through the day.
Cover it up –
A good quality concealer can work wonders under the eyes; covering up dark circles, evening the complexion and even masking fine lines. All good makeup retailers offer an under eye concealer but for the most natural result, I would recommend Bobbi Brown.
Treat them with care –
The skin around your eyes is one of the most delicate areas of the body. As we get older and our skin starts to lose elasticity, it is not able to bounce back as easily. Be gentle with your under-eyes:
- Don’t rub them too vigorously
- If you are applying cream, massage it in using light circular motions
- Sleep on silky pillows to avoid lines
Nothing will make you look more run down and unhappy than stress, especially around the eyes. It can also accelerate the signs of ageing. We all live busy lives but making sure that you take some calming time for yourself each day will help you to feel radiant both inside and out.
