We’ve all stood in front of the bathroom mirror, noticed sagging folds of skin on the upper eyelids that didn’t used to be there and searched longingly for a glimpse of our more youthful selves.
Often it’s our tired eyes that make us look older than we feel. And that seems so unfair, doesn’t it?!
With that in mind, I’m very excited to announce that we’ve recently welcomed a new non-surgical treatment to Skinovation Cosmetic Clinic that can help ‘lift’ droopy skin and reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. Read more about the Jett Plasma treatment and book a consultation here.
So how can you reverse sagging eye areas for a younger, fresher appearance?
Eye compresses made from teabags or cucumbers
Cucumbers and chamomile tea are both high in anti-inflammatory properties that, when applied cold to the eyelids for 15-20 minutes can provide a pleasant cool down and a small, short-lived freshen up.
Drink plenty of water
When your skin is well-hydrated, it appears plumper and clear of toxins, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. Read our blog post about the importance of hydration here.
Avoid sun damage
Exposure to the sun – even in short bursts like going to the letterbox – does damage to your skin. Protect your sensitive eye areas by avoiding unnecessary sun exposure, and wearing a hat and UV-rated sunglasses whenever you are outside.
Get a good night’s sleep
It sounds obvious, but that’s for a reason! Lack of sleep can cause the blood vessels under your eyes to dilate and fluids to leak out under the skin causing dark circles, puffiness and swelling.
Invest in a good eye cream
Dehydration is a major cause of wrinkles and, with the skin under the eyes the thinnest and most sensitive on our faces, it’s important we nourish it regularly. A good anti-ageing eye cream will hydrate the eye area. Depending on their active ingredients, others may boost cell turn-over, strengthen skin, or have a plumping effect that can slow the signs of ageing.
Consider non-surgical rejuvenation treatments
At Skinovation Cosmetic Clinic, we have a range of non-surgical treatments that can help you to achieve younger, fresher looking skin around the eyes. Jett Plasma, thread lifts, dermal fillers and rejuvenation treatments are potential options.
