Gearing up for the holiday… you’ve found your “perfect’ outfit, made your appointment to see us for your perfect festive manicure and fresh ‘do, but don’t compromise all that fabulousness by looking totally exhausted. Whether you’ll be travel weary or worn out from long days and late nights of holiday celebrations, there are some quick and easy ways you can help maintain a rested look by reducing under-eye bags.
After your skin is cleansed, gently tap and massage under your eyes, starting in a circle at the outside corners, tracing under your bottom lash line, along your brow bone and back to the outer corner. Use your middle or ring finger and the same amount of pressure you’d use to apply concealer. Repeat several times. This helps to loosen up the fluid that’s trapped under your eyes.
Submerge two tea bags in water and pop in the freezer for a few minutes (if you’re short on time just use cold water). Wring out excess fluid, lie down, and place on your eyes for about five minutes. Green tea is the best to use because it’s much more powerful than black tea, since it’s not as processed. Take your time and rest while they sit on your eyes.
The first two steps should remove any puffiness, but if you have a few more minutes finish with a cold compress. Ice or cold teaspoons will work. If you happen to have eye cream handy, apply it, then dab on a little concealer to cover any darkness. Now don’t you look well rested!
