The eyes are the windows of our soul…and your age! If you want beautiful, healthy, vibrant eyes, there’s more to it than you might think.
We all want to have younger looking eyes without surgery and injections, that’s why in this week’s blog we give you 5 non-surgical tips that will help slow down your ageing process and minimise wrinkles, bags, and loose skin.
1.Hydration is key
Not only does H20 help with our dry skin and our body it also helps with your eyes. Drinking water can improve blood circulation, which is the root cause of puffy eyes. Try out herbal teas (rooibos, chamomile, and green tea) to give your skin that extra boost to help fight those dark circles. Adults are recommended to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, which is known to improve your eating habits, hydration, and other natural bodily functions.
2.Start taking vitamins
Proper nutrition is one of the main contributions to your health. Your body craves certain vitamins to perform at its best. The two types of vitamins your eyes crave the most are vitamin A and Vitamin C. Try to include carrots, squash, capsicum, and citrus fruits into your diet as well as lean proteins to help build collagen levels! Salmon is great for omega 3 fatty acids and selenium rich foods fight again sun damage.
3.Start taking vitamins
We use a combination of lymphatic drainage and exfoliation to assist cell turnover and improve blood flow in several of our skin treatments and facials.
One of the simplest most effective ways but so difficult to sometimes get is, sleep! Having a consistent sleep schedule has major impacts on your body and skin. Keeping the same sleep pattern maintains the body’s natural biorhythms. If you’re unable to get an adequate amount of sleep, try meditation, yoga or simply a warm bath for 30 minutes is enough to get you switched off and relaxed before bedtime!
5.Skincare is always a must!
When you hit the young age of 40, our skin starts to lose its elasticity and thins, which makes you look tired and allows blood vessels to show throughout our under eyes and eyelids. GERnétic and Medik8 has a range of great innovative products to treat and nurture the eye area.
