5 Ways to Get Rid of Puffy Eyes

If eyes are the windows to our soul, the last thing we want are bags underneath them and puffiness surrounding them. The thin, delicate skin around the eye area is one of the first places to show the signs of aging. While puffiness is considered a temporary condition, it stretches the delicate tissues and leads to loose, sagging skin, aka “bags.” Under-eye bags can be difficult, if not impossible, to get rid of without surgery.

The good news is, if you do your facial exercises regularly and follow the tips below, you can stave off puffiness and help your eyes look fresh and youthful.

1. Sleep Right

Get adequate sleep every night. Most people need between seven and nine hours per night. Figure out what works for you and stick to a routine. Elevate your head with two pillows while you sleep to promote proper drainage. The elevation decreases the fluid retention that causes the puffiness you see when you wake up. Use silk or satin pillowcases to avoid fabric pulling on your skin when you move during sleep.

2. Shower in the Morning

Morning showers helps decrease morning puffiness. When shower water hits your face, its force stimulates fluids surrounding the eyes and moves them out of the area. The water’s heat also boosts the lymphatic vessels to help eliminate toxins. If you shower at night, you’ll miss out on these benefits.

3. Treat Allergies

Allergies are a major cause of puffiness and bags under the eyes. They irritate the delicate under-eye tissue, resulting in redness, puffiness and swelling. This also makes you rub and tug at the skin. See a doctor to get your allergies under control and follow the protocol they recommend religiously.

4. Open Your Eyes

The Eye Opener is one of the most popular facial exercises in the Facercise system. Daily practice boosts circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system. This eliminates fluids in the eye area and firms the skin, which helps prevent the sagginess that leads to bags.

5. Freeze Your Face

A great way to reduce puffy eyes is to cover them with a cold compress, a cold spoon or a bag of frozen peas. Anything cold constricts the blood vessels, which prevents fluid collection in the area.

How to Cleanse Your Face Properly 208 226 Facercise

How to Cleanse Your Face Properly

Washing your face is easy, right? While most people think you just have to rinse with some cleanser and you’re good to go, that’s not the case. The way you wash your face is almost as important as doing facial exercises regularly, especially if you want to fight the signs of aging. If you wash your face incorrectly, you can exacerbate blemishes and make wrinkles and fine lines more apparent.

Your skin care protocol should definitely begin with washing your face. Facial skin is extremely delicate, so never scrub or tug on it. The dermis’ outer layer is composed of dead skin cells that are connected by fatty compounds called lipids. Lipids help your skin maintain hydration, so it’s essential avoid damaging them. On the flip side, you don’t want dead skills to aggregate or you’ll have a dull complexion.

Remove Makeup

Start by removing your makeup with a mild wipe or remover. Use gentle strokes especially when you remove your eye makeup. Never tug on this area! The skin around your eyes is probably the thinnest and most delicate on your entire body.

Apply Cleanser

Once you’ve removed your makeup, it’s time to apply a gentle cleaner appropriate for your skin type. Use lukewarm water since hot water can strip the skin of its oils and damage lipids. Wet your skin and use circular, upward motions to wash your face. Upward movements are key since they defy gravity; when you use downward motions, it pulls the skin down which contributes to sagging. Wash for a minimum of 30 seconds—make it feel like a luxurious massage if you can.

Dry

Do not rub your skin to dry it! Instead, pat it dry with a soft towel. Now you’re ready for the next step of your skin care regimen.

3 Ways to Fight Wrinkles While You Sleep 500 337 Facercise

3 Ways to Fight Wrinkles While You Sleep

If you want to look youthful and timeless at every age, it’s important to take a multi-faceted approach. A healthy, antioxidant-rich diet, superior skin care products and facial exercises are essential—but are you getting enough quality sleep? Good sleep is definitely important, but if you take steps to maximize its benefits, the results will be stellar.

Here are a few tips for making the most out of your sleep and slowing down the signs of aging.

1. Assume the Right Position

When you sleep in a position that smashes one side of your face into a pillow, this causes wrinkles in that area and promotes collagen breakdown. Collagen is key for a youthful looking skin since it helps maintain volume and elasticity. If you want firm, plump skin, sleep on your back. It will also help you avoid those wrinkles and deep creases on your face and décolletage. If you have trouble getting used to it, lie down on your back for 20 minutes during the day to develop muscle memory.

2. Get a Superior Pillowcase

Cotton pillowcases are too rough on your skin. Make the switch to one made of satin or silk asap. They are much gentler and your skin will slide on the fabric if you switch positions during sleep. Satin and silk pillowcases are gentler on your hair as well.

3. Apply Retinol at Night

Retinol is the perfect product for reducing and slowing the signs of aging. It’s a vitamin A derivative that boosts collagen production, stimulates cellular turnover and exfoliates dead cells. The result is smoother skin, a more even skin tone and a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol also diminishes sun sports and hyperpigmentation. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is gentle yet extremely effective version that doesn’t lead to the side effects that some retinoids cause.
