I feel rather partied-out at the moment, as I have been lucky enough to be invited to one dinner or Gala after another recently. It’s great fun at the time, and lovely to go somewhere where I am amongst friends, but after a while, too many late nights can leave my eyes looking tired, puffy and years older. My go-to solution is to make sure that I thoroughly cleanse my face in general, and the eyes in particular…both before getting into bed and first thing in the morning….this is to ensure that every scrap of makeup and debris is taken off so that my lovely HSSC Restorative Miracle Serum and my HSSC Eye Serum can go to work and do their job.
Some people swear by scrubs to take makeup off, but I find that a bit harsh for my skin, so I resort to a good old face flannel and lots of lovely warm water as I find it really soothing and calming. You can buy stacks of really good face cloths in places like Wilko for something like 35p each! A good tip is to soak two tea bags in warm water, then chill the bags for a few minutes in the refrigerator. Place one tea bag on each eye for five minutes, and your eyes will feel fresh and look brighter.
And I have also discovered a new treatment called Xela Therapy which can help fade and dramatically improve dark circles. The treatment involves having blood drawn from the arm, which is then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets and then mixed with a new form of hyaluronic acid, called Xela Rederm. This is injected into the areas around the eye to lift, smooth and stimulate the regeneration of skin cells and new collagen. A course of three treatments, two weeks apart recommended but you’ll see fresher more rejuvenated eyes after on. . Results are natural with no downtime. Results last 6-12 months when one top up is required.
As for those tell-tale hollows which can cast shadows under the eyes, a hyaluronic acid filler can also be used to add volume. This instantly helps light bounce off the skin, taking years off the eyes. Results are instant and last three to six months.
Both treatments and the HSSC products are available at our clinic, so do get in touch if they sound like something which could work for you. 0207 436 4441
