Puffy eyes are caused by a build up of toxins overnight as a result of a sluggish lymphatic system not able to do its 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 do DIY facial moves). They’ll help drain away excess fluid from the delicate outer eye area
HOW KISS THE MOON CAN HELP
Although we don’t have an eye treatment (yet!), we can still help with the overall detox that your face requires overnight. Massaging your face gently with any of our nutrient-rich After Dark Face Oils gives you a double whammy. The action helps boost circulation and speed up drainage of toxins and the absorption of the nutrients that the essential oils we use contain.
