Say goodbye to dark circles and puffy lids with these three simple steps:
1. Flush it out. When you wake up with unusually puffy eyes, the consumption of too much sodium and too little water is often the culprit. Make a point of drinking plenty of extra water to rehydrate and flush out the toxins that are puffing you up; it’ll improve your current appearance and help prevent waking up with the same problem tomorrow.
2. Walk it off. Whether you occasionally suffer from puffy, tired-looking eyes or your brighter-eye battle is a lifelong one, you’ve probably wondered what you can do to de-puff your eyes, fast. Here’s the secret: go for a walk. Even a ten-minute walk will get blood pumping and excess fluid moving away from your face. I recently started going for early morning walks and was thrilled to discover this side effect. Want proof? Check out these before and after photos:
3. Fake it. If you don’t have time to take a stroll or your dark circles make you look like you’ve been punched in the face, it’s time to call in some reinforcements. Enter Benefit Fakeup.
