1. Eat an Iron-Rich Diet
An iron deficiency could be the reason for your under-eye bags and dark circles. Make them go away by incorporating iron-rich foods like spinach, kidney beans and dark chocolate into your diet
2. Use Eye Primer
When you put makeup directly on to your eyelids it will settle into wrinkles and crevices making them look more prominent. An eye primer will fill in these creases, allowing for smooth, long-lasting application.
3. Don’t Over pluck Your Brows
When you’re over 40, over-tweezing will make you look like you’re losing eyebrow hair – a classic sign of aging.
Moisturizing is essential for youthful-looking eyes. Dry skin can lead to cracks, wrinkles and bags. If you’re struggling with puffiness, opt for a gel eye serum or a calendula eye balm. If you want to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, reach for a nighttime retinol cream. Whatever product you use, make sure it includes healing vitamin E and protective SPF if you intend to wear it during the day.
5. Eliminate Salt
Eating too many salty foods can lead to water retention in the eyes. To prevent puffiness, consume no more than 2300 mg or about one teaspoon of salt a day.
6. Sweat Potato Eye Pads
If you’re looking for a spa-grade eye pad, reach for sweet potatoes not cucumbers! Sweet potatoes are dense and have anti-inflammatory properties that can decrease puffiness. Cut into one-inch slices and place on eyes for 10 minutes in the morning to reduce darkness and puffiness.
