MIRROR TEST #2 - PUFFY EYES?

<>

Next in our series of the tell tale signs of poor sleep on your face - the dreaded puffy eyes.

What to look for: 

Bags and dark circles under the eyes

Cause: 

Build up of toxins overnight as a result of a sluggish lymphatic system is not able to do it's clear up job effectively. While we are sleeping the lymph system kicks in, flushing out toxins and other waste materials that built up through the day. Interrupting this process creates a build up. We notice this first around our eyes as our skin here is much thinner than elsewhere.

What to do: 

  • Relieve puffiness by placing a cotton pad soaked in chilled green or camomile tea over each eye. The cool will ease and refresh and also stimulate the circulation so you'll look and feel a bit more wide awake.
  • Also try some gentle lymphatic drainage massage moves (check this out for some easy to so examples). They'll help drain away excess fluid from the delicate outer eye area.

How Kiss the Moon can help: 

Massaging gently with any one of our nutrient rich After Dark Face Oils gives you a double whammy - the action helps boost circulation and speed up drainage of toxins while the ingredients nourish and moisture. Choose from LOVE, GLOW or CALM. 

Most importantly of all - remember that our skin is a barometer that tells the tale of whether we're getting enough sleep. So while there are ways to handling those days when you wake up looking tired, the real solution is to tackle the main issue and find ways of getting the sleep your skin needs to stay looking its best.
