The eyes are not only the window to the soul, but a great indicator of your health, age and emotions. When you first meet someone the initial connection is often made by looking into their eyes. Is this a happy person, a friendly person, someone you want to know?
Unfortunately, with today’s hectic life styles your eyes tend to suffer. If you work with computers or get less that the desired eight hours sleep; if you have a glass of wine, eat salty foods or foods your body has trouble metabolizing; or if you are under stress or exposed to harsh weather conditions your eyes may look and feel worn out. Whether it’s dark circles, puffiness, sagging skin or crow’s feet your eyes say a lot about your current health.
At Elizabeth Renee Esthetic’s Skincare Spa we realize that eyes are often overlooked in your skincare routine, even though the contour area around your eyes is the most delicate area of the face. We think this is so important we have devoted a whole month to caring for the eye area. During The “EYES” of March we offer eye treatments, quick eye makeup updates, even an eye facial, plus useful recommendations about what eye care formulations will be most beneficial for your unique skin type.
You should think about devoting this month to taking care of the skin around your eyes. At Elizabeth Renee Esthetics we’ve developed a new facial with just this in mind. Our new Firm & Lift Eye Facial is a soothing treatment that uses advanced micro-firming technology to promote beautiful looking eyes. It’s more than your typical eye treatment. The Firm & Lift Eye Facial starts with a gentle enzyme masque brushed over the eye bone and swept across the tops of the cheeks. The carefully selected enzymes gently dissolve surface dead cells that accentuate wrinkles. This masque also tightens and sooths the skin. Following the masque our especially trained estheticians perform a feather light manual lymphatic drainage massage. This type of massage encourages lymphatic vessels (which hold fluid, toxins and pigment in the area around the eyes) to drain away lymph, helping to reduce puffiness and dark circles. The third phase of the treatment is devoted to a new microcurrent technology. Microcurrent treatments are often referred to as “non-surgical face lifts”. Elizabeth Renee Esthetics uses the newest technology, focusing specifically on tightening the delicate muscles around the eyes. The result is fresh, radiant skin that feels comfortable and looks great.
Here are some at-home treatments for fresher looking eyes:
Dark Circles: Cover your eyes for 15 minutes with cotton pads soaked in cool cucumber juice. Note: Cut slices of Cucumbers; place them in a small bowl and cover them with cold distilled water from the fridge. After removing the cotton pads, massage in Eyelift Brightening Cream, lightly around the eyes, using gentle pumping motions on the bone, going away from the eyes.
Puffy Eyes: Moisten two chamomile tea bags with cold water or stick them in the refrigerator to cool them. Place them over the eyes for five to ten minutes. You may also use cotton pads soaked in Chamazulene Toner. Follow with Anti-Puff Gel that you’ve left in the fridge. Apply sparingly on the eye bone. Take the “cold” glass bottle of Anti-Puff Gel and roll it over the puffy areas. This treatment works best when done in the morning.
Dry Eyes: Apply a warm washcloth over your eyes for up to ten minutes followed by the gentle massage mentioned above. Do this several times per day. This helps open clogged oil glands in the eyelids that help with lubrication.
Tired Eyes: Rub your palms quickly together until they feel warm. Cup them over your closed eyes. Feel the heat emanating from your palms, but don’t touch your eyelids. Sit quietly in this position for a minute. Repeat several times. This helps to soothe eyes and revitalize the surrounding area.
