Save yourself from puffy eye embarrassment!
By Nina Sutton
The skin beneath our eyes, (also known as the under eye area) is one of the first features to show the signs of aging: wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles to name a few. While we can hide behind sunglasses outside, the truth is revealed once we take them off inside. Here are some tips to get younger-looking, vibrant eyes everyday:

Check your lifestyle
The first step to younger looking eyes is to make a few lifestyle changes, and the first is to limit the amount of salt in your diet (which can puff you up and dehydrate you) and increase your water intake. Alcohol can also contribute to puffiness and can interfere with much needed beauty sleep as well. Speaking of sleep, try using two pillows at night to elevate your face, which helps reduce puffy eyes because it limits fluid build-up in your lower lids.
Treat wrinkles at night
Under-eye wrinkles and crepey skin are some of the biggest contributors to looking older and tired. Treat these at night with an eye concentrate that deeply moisturizes the delicate skin under your eyes like JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Eye Concentrate Capsules.
Awaken, de-puff and smooth in the morning
Upon awaking, place cold spoons under your eyes (you can use ice cubes as well) to help revive your eyes and reduce any swelling. Follow with an eye cream that will smooth, firm and brighten not only under your eyes, but crow’s feet as well (and prep the area for makeup). One to try is JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Global Longevity Eye Crème - a multitasking anti-aging eye crème that combines their exclusive RoyalActive Peptide with proven anti-aging ingredients to give your eyes a more youthful appearance.
Create illusions with makeup
Once your eyes are prepped for makeup, choose a creamy concealer with yellow undertones to help camouflage dark circles. Next, avoid dark colors on your eyelid, and instead opt for nude or champagne tones to open up your eyes and draw the focus upwards, away from your under eye area.
