How To: Get Rid of Under Eye Dark Circles and Puffiness

Yesterday I reviewed an anti dark circles product (cliiiick!), so today I wanted to share with you a few tips on how to get rid of under eye dark circles and puffiness.

Let’s be honest! Every single woman who has these two problems asks herself every morning ”How could I get rid of them?”. Am I right?

First of all, you have to find out the reason of dark circles and puffiness. If you know the reason, you will be able to act against them.

Look at your mother, father, grandmother; do they have dark circles? If yes, your under-eye puffiness is a hereditary condition (I got my dark circles from daddy…). What does that mean? Hmmm… Girl, you can’t do much about it. Just make peace with your look and don’t spent your money to all these products that promise to do miracles.

Try to eat healthy! I know! Everyone keeps telling you that and it’s like a blah,blah,blah, in your head, but it is true: the healthier you eat, the better your skin looks. To get rid of dark circles eat foods rich of Vitamin C, E, K iron and folic acid. Wanna some examples? Oranges, berries, nuts, whole grains, beef, cheese, green tea, green leafy veggies. Oh! Avoid greasy foods, too. Bad for the cellulite, as well. xD

Stop smoking and drinking. No more words! You know what I mean!

Try the homemade remedies; cool cucumber or potato slices, cotton balls dipped in potato juice, coll teabags or teaspoons, leaving castor oil overnight… In case you know more remedies, please leave a comment down here!Thank you!

Make sure you drink enough water! Dehydration might cause blood vessels under the eyes to become darker and swollen.

Relax! It’s the best way to help your body look healthier!

Sleep well, sweetheart!!! Lack of sleep could make your skin look paler and reduces circulation, which means that blood vessels could be more visible, giving the appearance of dark circles. Make sure you sleep 7-8 hours.
These are just a few tips to help you get rid of dark circles. If you don’t see any improvement at all, keep in mind that under eye dark circles and puffiness could be signs of a few health problems, like iron deficiency,  nasal congestion, allergy… If you believe it’s a health problem, contact your doctor!

What are your tips to get rid of these two little ”enemies”, anyway? Let me know!!!

How To: Protect Your Skin During Winter

Even if  we see Spring’s new trends and collections everywhere, it is still cold outside–very cold! And with these temperatures our skin could become fragile and sensitive. Do you really know how to take care of your skin and keep it looking healthy during this cold time of the year?


Rule Number 1: Water, Water, Water! You’ve heard it thousand times but do you do it? Drinking water is good for your health and when you are healthy that reflects on your skin.

Wash your face with lukewarm water and not hot. I know, it’s cold and hot water feels good when you wash your face, but it could damage your skin- and I am pretty sure you don’t want that. Use a mild cream based cleanser. Gel cleansers or bar soaps could strip your skin of natural oils and make it drier and fragile. I recommend you Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser.

Don’t forget to exfoliate and apply a hydrating mask once a week.

Invest in a great moisturizer, keeping in mind your skin type. Prefer hte ones that are free of chemicals that could irritate and dry your skin. My favourite moisturizer for cold weather is Estee Lauder Hydrationist SPF15, pricey but it’s worth it.
Slather on the SPF. Even when it’s cloudy, the sun rays can be harmful for your skin. If it snows, the sun ray’s could be harmful as well, because of the reflections. Apply an SPF to all exposed areas of skin and enjoy your winter days with no worries!
Use a good moisturizing lip balm. Chapped lips could be so annoying, so remember to moisturize them often. Prefer lip balms with beeswax or shea butter. Which lip balm do I use? This winter I am totally in love with Apivita Lip Care Bee Princess (click! for the review).

What are your beauty secrets for these cold months? Do you do anything special to protect your skin?
Kisses beauties! Enjoy your day!
