Wondering how to reduce puffy eyes and wrinkles without having to try a dozen different products before being successful? This article will help assure that the next solution you get is a winner.
Let’s face it now, nothing makes you look older that puffiness, bags, and wrinkles under your eyes. And since the eyes and face are the primary places we look when we communicate (verbally and nonverbally) with each other, it’s hard to not notice them either.
Want to know how to reduce puffy eyes and wrinkles? Here’s a few keys to success to keep in mind when looking for the perfect solution.
*Don’t discount skin care companies that you’ve never heard of before. I didn’t find an effective treatment to reduce puffy eyes and wrinkles until I started to look closely at brands I never heard of before (specifically, ones made outside the U.S.). The Internet is a great place to find effective anti-aging products because you can learn a whole lot more about them then by just reading a product’s label at the store. Just remember that a heavily advertised product isn’t necessarily one that works; it just means they advertise the most!
*Don’t let price dictate which product you get. I know that price is important, but you can’t let it decide which product to go with. If you spend too little, you’re just going to waste your money. But you certainly don’t need to spend $75-$100 on a single eye care product. Pick which one to go with based on the ingredients it contains.
*Understand what causes wrinkles, bags, and puffiness to form under the eyes. Wrinkles form because of a loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin. Free radical damage speeds up the aging process as well. Puffiness under the eyes forms because of increased fluid build-up due to poor drainage and circulation, an increase in skin slackening, and a decrease is skin elasticity.
*In order to reduce puffy eyes and wrinkles, you have to get a cream or lotion that contains the right ingredients in effective amounts. Not only do you need to get an eye treatment that contains the right ingredients that address the problems listed above, you also have to make sure that the product uses those ingredients in effective amounts. Many companies just use minimal amounts of some ingredients just to add it to it’s label.
*Look for proof that the product (or at least the ingredients) is effective and does what it says it does. Unlike drugs, skin care companies do not have to prove their products are effective and safe. If a company really knew how effective their product was, they would have put it through clinical trials to prove it’s effectiveness. If they didn’t, then how do they know it will actually reduce puffy eyes and wrinkles?
