How can I reduce under-eye puffiness?

1. What causes under-eye puffiness?

The skin in the eye contour area is extremely thin and delicate, and has a tendency to crease and darken easily. It can swell, especially overnight, and take on a puffy appearance. When you wake and throughout the day, your eyes look tired and drawn. Poor lifestyle or excess weight can also cause puffiness under the eyes.

2. Your anti-puffiness routine

To reduce puffiness under the eyes, use an eye contour product that targets puffiness and is suitable for your skin type. Try the Eye Contour Gel, designed for all women and skin types. If you have under-eye puffiness and dark circles, this is the gel you absolutely must add to your beauty routine. In a matter of seconds, dark circles are erased, puffiness is soothed, and your eyes look bright and clear. Traveling long distance? Suffering from insomnia? Got a late night planned? If you know in advance that you won't be getting much shut-eye, apply the gel beforehand for effective action while you sleep.

3. Get into good habits

Water levels in your skin tissue are the main factor in whether or not you suffer from puffiness. In addition to using the right products, flush away excess liquid in the eye contour area to prevent water retention. Gently tap the skin around your eyes with your fingertips, working from the inner corner to the outer corner. Repeat several times to boost blood flow and encourage lymphatic draining. This technique combined with your eye contour gel will help banish puffiness for bright eyes.
