If you’re suffering from tired eyes, the best course of action is to try and get more sleep. But if that isn’t an option, you might need some outside help.
The quality of your skin will determine the appearance of your lower eyelids. Most commonly, the lower eyelids appear tired because of the following two criteria:
- Loss of collagen
The first important step in reducing the appearance of tiredness in the lower eyelids is to address these two factors with effective medical based skin treatments. In doing so, the pigmentation of the lower eyelids improves, thereby reducing the dark skin and hallow eye areas. Second, prescription-based topical eye creams improve the resiliency of the skin by promoting the production of linear collagen and elastin.
Surgical treatment is not the first stage in improving the lower eyelids. If surgery is indicated, it should complement radiant, glowing skin.
Homemade remedies are great, and tea can be a wonderful antidote to weary eyes.
- Black tea bags (with caffeine) contain tannins which can be helpful for puffy eyes while the caffeine constricts dilated capillaries diminishing the dark circles.
- Green tea is also quite helpful as it contains anti-inflammatory polyphenols.
- Chamomile tea is another excellent soothing compress for puffy eyes since it contains bisabol.
- Tea bags are preferable to cotton pads soaked in tea since they are far more concentrated in tannins. They should be freshly steeped for five minutes and then added to ice water for five to ten minutes to cool them down.
