At home recipe for Reducing Under The Eye Puffiness

A wonderful property of caffeine to constrict blood vessels also makes it a go-to ingredient in many eye creams, as it can quickly minimize redness and puffiness.  In addition to its anti-inflammatory benefits though, caffeine is starting to get lots of attention for its antioxidant properties.  The anti-oxidants found in green and red teas offer powerful anti-carcinogenic benefits.

Here is a quick fix at home remedy that works great to reduce under the eye puffiness and redness.

  • Take 2 bags of organic red or green tea
  • Soak in a cup of warm black coffee for 30 min
  • Squeeze excess liquid
  • Freeze tea bags for 1 hour in the freezer
  • Apply under the eyes for 10-15 minutes
  • Perfect before an event or the night out.

BETWEEN US GUYS 

handsome dad skinMen might be from Mars and women from Venus, but they’re even more light-years apart when it comes to their skin. The fact is, men have specific skin issues—oilier-than-normal skin, pronounced pores, sun damage, and facial irritation and razor bumps caused by shaving—that are vastly different from those of the fairer sex. Fortunately, maintaining a younger and healthier appearance is not an out-of-this world proposition. Read on to find out how to keep your man’s mug looking sharp.

Start With a Clean Slate

The most common and beneficial treatment for a guy in your life to produce a healthy, glowing, and radiant appearance is to remove debris and dead skin cells. This can be easily achieved with microdermabrasion followed by a skin-nourishing facial- a service with no downtime.  This may be done between 2­-6 times per year depending on individual needs.  An age reversing facial treatment, pore reducing mask and a light peel geared to address pore size, pigmentation and fine lines will also yield noticeable results.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

Men over 40 should absolutely invest in a daily moisturizer, preferably one containing sunscreen (sadly, SPF is often an afterthought for the male brain), skin-rejuvenating peptides, vitamin C, and anti-oxidants. Using a nighttime moisturizing containing Vitamin-A-Rich Retinoids can also be extremely helpful in reversing the decades of sun damage and environmental stress his skin has been subjected to.

Turn Up the Radio (waves)

Jowls. Sagging eyelids. Turkey neck. Give him a much-deserved pick-me-up with a skin-tightening procedure that uses the power of high-frequency wave technology. This non­invasive procedure shows results in just a few sessions, requires no downtime, and can be done during a lunch hour, making it a perfect procedure for a busy papa.

A Little Goes a Long Way

Women have long turned to Botox, fillers, and other injectables to attain a more youthful appearance. With the increasing pressure to keep up with those whippersnappers at work, many men are getting in on the act, too. But go easy, guys. Conservative injection strategies are key. The goal here is to look refreshed, not frightening.
