Say goodbye to puffy eyes

You want to look refreshed and awake, but your puffy eyes give you away? There are a lot of super easy tips to try at home and treat your puffy eyes! Take a look:

1. Cucumbers, eat & treat
Place a cool cucumber slice over each eye and rest for 30 minutes. You can also blend 2 to 3 cucumbers, strain the pulp and refrigerate for 20 minutes. After that, soak a cotton swab in the juice and apply the cucumber extract over each eye. Rinse off with water after 15-20 minutes. Cucumbers have a rich source of antioxidants and flavonoids that help with redness, swelling, and irritation; that’s why they are used for eye puffiness. They can even reduce eye puffiness because they have a cooling effect that constricts dilated blood vessels. So, don’t eat them all! Read more

9 Beauty Habits That Give You Wrinkles Cut them out now to save your skin later

Wrinkles are a part of aging—and life. While we know to expect wrinkles as we get older, some of the battle has nothing to do with age. Your beauty routines and habits can impact wrinkling as well. See the bad habits that affect your skin’s aging process so you can cut them out ASAP.

Smoking
Smoking is the most common cause of wrinkles. “There have been studies of twins that showed proof of this in stunning detail,” says Joel Schlessinger, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon and founder of LovelySkin.com. “So skip cigarettes and lose the wrinkles!”

Your Diet
If you want to keep your skin healthy and young, the old saying that you are what you eat is definitely true. Eating too much sugar and high-glycemic foods doesn’t just impact your weight—it could make you look older, too. “Through a damaging process called glycation, sugar molecules attach to the proteins in your skin (including collagen), causing them to become stiff and malformed,” says Roshini Rajapaksa, M.D., a gastroenterologist, balanced health advocate, and co-founder of TULA. “This results in a loss of facial elasticity, as well as contours, puffiness, and fine lines. Refined sugar and other simple carbohydrates also trigger inflammation throughout the body by causing insulin levels to skyrocket. Inflammation produces enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, which leads to sagging and wrinkles.” So cut down on refined sugar and simple carbohydrates—your skin will thank you!

Drinking
All alcohol dehydrates the skin, explains James C. Marotta, M.D., a dual-board-certified facial plastic surgeon. This means your skin will appear less plump and fresh the morning after you drink alcohol. Over time, your skin will lose elasticity and form wrinkles due to a lack of hydration. “Additionally, alcohol can have a huge negative impact on your vitamin A level, which is a very important antioxidant for your skin and body, and it is vital in the regeneration of new cells. Vitamin A is also extremely important in the production of collagen. When you have lower amounts of collagen, you lose elasticity in your skin,” says Marotta. Collagen and elasticity keep your skin supple, taut, and looking young.

Chewing Gum
“Gum chewing produces a type of wrinkle that I see quite often on the lower mouth,” says Schlessinger. Additionally, it causes other issues in the mouth structure. This is an easy habit to give up in the name of preserving your skin.

Not Removing Makeup
When you sleep in your makeup, you’re basically asking for wrinkles. The makeup and environmental pollutants you accumulate during the day seep into your pores, breaking down collagen and elastin. This can speed up the aging process and leave you with fine lines and wrinkles. Cleanse and moisturize your skin every night before bed.
