Bright Eyes

Your eyes are surrounded by very thin, delicate skin. In fact your eyes area's skin can be compared to the thinness of
an onion. The area beneath your eyes contain few oil glands making it vulnerable to fine lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles can't be prevented but the aging process can be slowed down and enhanced with natural ingredients. Definitely shop for paraben-free and fragrance-free eye cremes and serums. Avoid exfoliating to close to your eyes.

Your eyes actually can say a lot about you. Your eyes can show stress, poor diet, and lack of sleep. When these issues are present the eyes may show dark circles, swelling and puffiness. Dark circles can be a sign of dehydration. Be sure to drink plenty of water. Try drinking cranberry juice to reduce dark circles. Cranberries contain vitamin K as well as dark green veggies. If you are experiencing swelling and puffiness, use spoons chilled in ice water and press them around the eyes. For a quick home remedy try a few drops of Vitamin E, Castor Oil or Olive Oil around the eye area.
