Our eyes are often the first place we start to notice those fine lines creeping in. While we can’t stop aging, there’s plenty we can do to pamper our eye area, keeping it looking younger for longer. The upside is that what is good for your delicate eye area is gentle enough for use on the rest of your face.
There are marvelous cosmetics and beauty products made with coffee grounds that can tighten skin under the eyes and banish dark circles, leaving your beautiful eyes looking fresh and fabulous.
Coffee is antioxidant-rich and the caffeine acts as a vasoconstrictor, deflating blood vessels to reduce puffiness, redness, and swelling in the eye area. Since coffee is a diuretic, it temporarily draws fluid from the skin to shrink cell size to tighten the area.
Even drinking coffee may hold skin benefits. Coffee drinkers were less likely to develop skin cancer, including melanoma. Don’t throw out your sunscreen just yet, though. Nothing substitutes for the protection of a good sunscreen, so think of your morning coffee as another layer of UV defense.
Derived from the seed of the jojoba shrub—found in Arizona or southern California, this natural ingredient is packed with vitamins E and B, along with minerals like copper and zinc, making it a nourishing treat for skin and hair alike. It can reduce fine lines around your eyes. Intrigued? Here's what else you should know about this multi-tasking natural wonder.
"Jojoba oil is unique among the plant-based oils in that it’s quite similar to the composition of human sebum,” says Nikhil Dhingra, MD, a dermatologist at Spring Street Dermatology in New York City. “Because it's so similar, it can trick your skin into thinking it doesn't need to produce more oil.”
"Jojoba oil helps to fight free radical damage which will in turn help prevent the break down of collagen that can lead to crepey skin and wrinkles, making it extremely beneficial in skincare formulations,” explains Luigi L. Polla, MD, a dermatologist in Geneva, Switzerland.
This is a great under eye treatment to give yourself before bed, after washing off all the day’s makeup. Gently dab it on with your ring finger, without pulling, making sure to get all the fine lines. It’s equally good for the rest of the face, but go lightly. You’ll wake in the morning with fresh, bright skin that feels amazing to touch.
These three tips can help you start your day looking fresh and dewy. All of these smell delightful, which is sure to boost your morning mood.
