As moms, it’s nearly impossible to not feel tired all the time, and sometimes that drowsy feeling can translate to our eyes. Though there’s nothing more important than inner beauty, outer beauty can help boost our self-confidence!
So instead of criticizing those tired-looking eyes in the mirror, try some of these tips to look refreshed and ready to take on the busy days ahead.
1. Dark Circles
The skin under your eyes is extremely thin. This means that the slightest hint of a dark circle – caused by pooled blood close to the surface – can make you look like you've smeared eye black onto your cheeks, football-style.
Before heading out the door, gently pat some creamy concealer at the outer edges of your eyes and onto your lids. This will instantly brighten up your eyes and cover up those pesky dark circles!
Another solution: Try Olay Eyes Illuminating Eye Cream, which reduces the appearance of dark circles under eyes in just two weeks and reflects light from the eyes for a smoother, more radiant skin tone.
Saggy skin under the eyes is caused when water pools into swelled tissue. If you’re stressed or not getting enough sleep at night, this could be your problem! Try adding another pillow under your head – the extra elevation will help keep excess fluids from building up in your face.
If all else fails, Olay Eyes Eye Lifting Serum is specially formulated to instantly plump the overall eye area with hydration and reduce the appearance of under-eye bags with every use.
Under-eye puffiness tends to worsen with age, although you might notice the puffing gets worse after a late night, salty food binge or crying bout. Try a compress to temporarily reduce puffiness, like cool cucumber slices, warm caffeinated tea bags or a cool, damp washcloth.
For additional fighting power, try Olay Eyes Eye Depuffing Roller, which works to instantly awaken tired-looking eyes and soothe skin.
Expert Tip: Keep your eye treatment in the fridge! It helps de-puff eyes quickly in the morning and even feels refreshing during warmer temps.
4. Fine Lines and Wrinkles
We’re all dealing with the dreaded fine lines. They tend to show up more easily and quickly around the eyes than anywhere else. (It's that thin skin, we tell you!)
While it’s not possible to turn back the clock, you can find eye products loaded with ingredients like Pro-Retinol that help increase the rate of surface cell turnover to smooth the look of wrinkles. Try the Olay Eyes Pro Retinol Eye Treatment to reduce the look of our deepest wrinkles in just four weeks.
Last but not least, if you’re suffering from all of these tired-eye symptoms, don’t worry. We’ve got the solution for you! Try Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream, which fights wrinkles, dark circles and puffy eyes in an instant.
