Have you ever wondered why cucumber slices always seem to compliment a face mask treatment? You may have possibly heard from your mother or a friend that it is good for your eyes, but do we really know why? We’ve done the research, so you don’t have to.
Cucumbers are 95% water and it is due to their high water content that they are able to revitalise the skin, applying the moisture directly to the eye area. They are also full of Vitamin E and Potassium, Silica and Antioxidants meaning they can aid in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, helping to not only combat the “racoon eyes”, but also firm the skin.
We know the area under the eye is a problem area for many, which is why we have cleverly devised our Soothe and Smooth Eyes roll-on. Here are some tips and tricks on how to use your Soothe and Smooth Eyes and get rid of that puffiness.
PREP YOUR SKIN
Start cleansing your face to remove makeup and pollution. You choose between oil-based and water-based cleanser. We suggest using 100% Chemical Free Makeup Remover, gentle on the skin thanks to the Aloe Vera Juice and the Jojoba Oil. This step is essential to ensure your skin is clean and ready to drink all the nutrients.
Now that your skin is clean and fresh it's time to rebalance skin's PH. We love the Finest Organic Bulgarian Rose Water. Not only helps maintain your skin’s pH balance, has anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties which assist in the strengthening of skin cells and regenerating skin tissues. Rosewater will help to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Hydrates, revitalises, tones, smooths and moisturizes the skin, fight skin blemishes including acne, dermatitis and eczema.
BYE BYE PUFFY EYES
The time has now come to treat these puffy undereye with Soothe and Smooth Eyes. You'll be surprised by how easy is to nourish and massage your eye area thanks to this product.
Start applying the product by gently pressing the roller ball all around the eye area. With your finger spread the mixture and gently tap using your middle finger. Eye's skin is thin and delicate and we don't want to damage it. Tapping is the best way to let all nutrients penetrate and at the same time stimulate the lymphatic system.
Tip: keep your Soothe and Smooth Eyes inside the fridge to keep it cool. “Cooling skin with any kind of a pure temperature change can help bring down puffiness,” says Rachel Nazarian, MD, a New York City dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group. “This happens for the same reason your fingertips go numb when you go outside and it’s cold.” That’s because blood vessels constrict when the temps are cooler, which is why for years pros have suggested placing spoons in the fridge as an under eye remedy.
We suggest using Soothe and Smooth Eyes morning and night to cure and prevent undereye puffiness. Remember to drink at least 1,5 l of water per day to stay hydrated.
