When it comes to transitioning from the slow days of summer to the fast fall season, everyone is affected, not just back-to-schoolers. Adjusting to a busier schedule, as well as the clock change, is both exhausting on your body and your face, and can show in your eye area. To help you look alive and revived this fall season, we’re sharing some of our favorite fall beauty tips for tired eyes.
Tip 1: Make sleep a priority.
With the fall season starting you are most likely a busy bee, but make sure you don’t let your sleep buzz off! In order to look your best, make sure to lock in at least 7 hours a night. Put the phone down, turn the TV off, and put your head to your pillow! If your schedule is a little crazy, try to clock in a 15-20 minute beauty nap – you’d be surprised as how much this can relax and recharge your system. Plus, a power nap can be so much more beneficial to your looks if you take that chance to sheet mask! Hydrating, firming and brightening your appearance in under 15 minutes? Yes, it’s possible.
TIP 2: De-puff
We get it – getting that needed 7 hours of sleep isn’t always possible. Unfortunately, this results in puffy peepers. This is because the body goes through critical functions during the different stages of sleep, releasing essential hormones and chemicals to bring you back to square one. One of these hormones is cortisol, which changes the salt levels in the body, resulting in the body retaining extra fluid. That extra fluid is partly responsible for those puffy eyes. Fortunately, there are eye treatments to help diminish the appearance of eye puffiness! When your alarm goes off in the morning, hit the snooze button, and pop-on some cooling eye pads. (You can even leave them in the fridge for extra cooling.) Let them sit for 10 minutes and work their magic before going about your day.
TIP 3: De-“panda”
Dark circles under eyes are only cute on pandas and racoons! Give your eyes a second chance with a targeted brightening eye gel or eye cream. Be on the lookout for ingredients known brighten the appearance of the skin like Licorice, and help give peepers some pep with Caffeine. Combined with the skin care powerhouse Seaweed, the brightening, uplifting and hydrating qualities will have all eyes on you, for the right reasons.
TIP 4: Get an express eye treatment.
If you’ve got an important event or meeting where you’ve got to look your best and your work or school life keeps you busy from spending a full day at the spa – that’s okay. Stop by your local salon/spa and visit with a skin care professional. They can offer you express treatments for the eye area, and these can be done in 15 minutes or less, but are still great “pick-me-ups” for eyes!
So no matter what the season holds, keep practicing daily skin care and booking spa visits with your favorite skin care professionals. We know you’ll soon “Sea the Difference”!
