5 tips to Reduce Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes!

We’ve all been there. You open up Snapchat on your phone, ready to snap a selfie. But the sight of your puffy eyes and dark circles makes you throw your phone in horror.

Dark circles can be caused by anything from allergies to sun exposure, or even simple genetics. Plus, as you age your skin gets thinner, making blood vessels under the eyes more prominent. While you can’t stop aging, there are things you can do to mitigate the effects of aging on your skin.

Wake is here to help reduce insecurity caused by tired-looking eyes and help your best self shine. Read on for our best tips to reduce dark circles and puffy eyes.

Get Better Sleep

Making sure you get good sleep is crucial to reducing dark circles. Part of getting better sleep means having better sleep practices, like setting an optimized bedroom temperature and keeping bedtimes consistent.

Stay Elevated

Adding one (or two!) more pillows under your head at night can reduce the appearance of swollen eyes in the morning. Puffy eyes are caused by fluid pooling in your lower eyelids, so adding some extra height to your sleeping routine can help keep fluid from gathering around your eyes and reduce that morning puffiness.

Go full-on pamper

There’s a reason why TV shows always show women at the spa luxuriating in a bathrobe with cucumber slices over their eyes. Dilated blood vessels can darken the appearance of under eye circles. Cold compresses– or, two chilled slices of cucumber– can constrict the blood vessels and lessen those dark circles.

Cucumbers are about 95% water so they are incredibly hydrating for skin, and gentle enough for the delicate skin around your eyes. Cucumbers also have high levels of silica which can boost collagen production.

Use Vitamin E

Advocates for adding Vitamin E to your skincare routine say that it provides intensive hydration by working to trap water into the skin. It’s also a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent that can help protect your skin from the aging effects of sun exposure.

At Wake, we’re big believers in the power of Vitamin E. We include it in many of our products, so you can be confident that you’re giving your skin the best treatment possible.

Add Wake Anti-Aging Eye Cream and Brightening Eye Gel to your Skincare routine

Wake has two eye products specifically formulated to reduce dark circles, relieve puffy eyes, and leave you feeling refreshed and confident in your skin.

Wake’s Anti-Aging Eye Cream is formulated with natural ingredients like hyaluronic acid and shea butter to soften and hydrate your skin, and antioxidants like coffee seed oil and sea buckthorn fruit oil to protect your skin and reduce puffiness and inflammation.

Our Brightening Eye Gel is made with Vitamin E to provide protection from the sun and hydrate your skin, as well as hyaluronic acid for elasticity, and collagen and avocado  oil to smooth your skin.
