Combating Under Eye Circles

I don't know about you but I have a constant battle going with my under eye circles.  I always feel like there has to be some magic potion or remedy out there that I just haven't come across yet that will make me look more alert and awake, and less like I really need 8 more hours of sleep.  I feel like I've finally fallen into a groove with a good routine, so of course I want to share it!

1. Hydrate
Water is key.  Now that I've been on a mission to consume more water, not only can I tell when I'm slacking by how my complexion is looking, I can totally see it in my under eye area.  Staying properly hydrated helps flush your system and keep things from building up and retaining, there fore not as much swelling and puffiness.  A win towards combating that dreaded under eye area.  

I know for me I've had to to start keeping large reusable drinking cups with straws around pretty much everywhere in order for me to consume enough water on a daily basis.  I have one at work, one at home. . .if it's not with me, I'm not getting the water I should.

2. Nourish
That under eye area is sensitive.  The skin is thin and delicate and it needs some special attention.  I was recently introduced to Youth Glow Eye Gel by goPure Naturals.  I love that this is a 100% natural product that helps fight fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness.  I haven't been using the product for too long, but I feel like I can already tell a difference in my under eye area looking less 'damaged' then before.  And that's only with using it once a day in the morning, mostly because I never remember to apply it at night.  I think a good eye cream is important in tackling those under eye problems and I'm definitely digging this one!

3. Conceal
The right concealer finishes of the battle.  Right now I'm totally loving Urban Decay's Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer.  It's not too heavy for a full coverage concealer, and it stays put all day without any caking or creasing into lines.  It also adds a nice subtle brightness to the under eye area, which is great when you are trying to diminish those dark circles.  It's definitely at a higher price point, but I've loved it so much I already stocked up on another tube to make sure I'm not stuck a day without it.

What are your secrets for fighting those under eye circles?

  1. You've got a good routine down! Ever since I discovered Dasani water enhancing drops, I can't stop drinking water! I've been curious about the UD concealer, so now I may have to test it out.

  2. This is an automatic message from DISQUS.

  3. Whatever it takes to get the water down - seriously why it is such a challenge! Loving the UD concealer!
