Updated: Jun 18
Numerous factors leads to getting dark circles, to add a few lack of sleep, stress and staring too long at a computer screen or any electronic device — all of these modern addictions shows up under my eyes. This is one of many reasons why I get those dark circles .
Given the lifestyle and my profession at #beobsessed.net,it requires me to work for long ours and not only that also stare at my MacBook Air or my iPhone for a long period of time . While closing my day by logging off and in-between going to sleep my husband has help me develop the addiction to watch new Netflix or Amazon Prime series which again causes strain to my eyes but that helps me refresh mine and his mind as well . It has become a part of our daily routine. Actually that is the time we get to spend with each other while eating dinner .While logging off and sleeping watch them disappear would be ideal but it’s just not possible. So I have started the next best thing for perking up my tired eyes: A 30-second eye massage to get rid of puffy, dark circles.
THE 30 SECOND EYE ROUTINE
This was something new for me and I was introduced to it by my dermatologist. The theory of lymph drainage for eye bags, here’s what I do for my eyes:
I gentle massage the under eye area by applying mCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Under Eye Cream in a tapping motion with my index and middle fingers (no tugging or dragging), tap out a circle around the eyes. Tapping brings blood flow to the area.
Going outward along my eyebrows, then inward along the top of my cheekbones toward the bridge of my nose. Circle my eyes three times.
Then with my middle fingers, I press firmly upward at the pressure points just under the brow bone on either side of my nose where my brows start.
Then I press firmly inward towards my nose, above the bridge, next to my tear ducts.
Massage temples with my index and middle fingers to finish.
The great thing about this tapping massage is that I can do it before before I apply make up in the morning while doing my morning skin care and also during my night skin care .It prevents the eye make to get creased as well which is like a bonus .
