Beauty Doctor’s Tips for Irresistible Eyes
Even before we open our mouths to speak, they're usually the first things people notice about us. If they are bright and alert, they could give off the right vibes to attract that special someone, an important business opportunity, and they could also give an indication about your present stat
e of health. What makes our eyes look bright and vibrant eyes is the contrast between the white part of the eye (sclera) with the colored part of the eye (iris).
While many of us take great care in making sure our outfits, hair, and makeup look perfect, we often forget about our actual eyes. When it comes to the health and beauty of your eyes, you can never underestimate how important proper care is. The skin around them should also be taken into account because if there are dark circles under or puffy with swelling then this will give off a tired appearance that give others the wrong impression about us, so finish up looking beautiful!
Here are some tips from Dr. LaFarra, CEO of LaFarra & Co on how to make your eyes irresistible.
Looking great starts with having beautiful eyes. Here are some tips from a pro on how to make your peepers stand out:
1) Stay hydrated
The human body is made up of 70% water, which makes it critical for optimum body function to look and feel good. Water helps to keep your eyes healthy and moist, which can help prevent dryness or irritation caused by environmental factors like hot weather, instruments that blow air into the face, smoke, and chemicals that may causes allergies or sensitivities.
2) Ingredients Matter
Head to your kitchen and look for ingredients that decrease inflammation for delicate skin around the eye and soft tissues in the eye like green tea or coffee bags with polyphenols and caffeine. Consuming omega 3 fatty acids found in foods like salmon, chia seeds, some plant oils, or supplements should also be a regular part of your beauty routine. Studies show that polyphenols as well as essential omega 3 fatty acids help decrease inflammation, which may be the cause of dull or slightly pink sclera, puffiness, or dark circles around the eye. So many other nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, collagen, and zinc are super helpful in keeping they eyes and surrounding skin bright and healthy, so don’t underestimate the importance of a balanced diet.
3) Prioritize Sleep
Unfortunately, there is no way around rejuvenating our eyes and the rest of our bodies with sleep. One of the first signs of poor sleep is tired, puffy eyes. Blue light from devices, which many of us receive from cell phones, computer monitors, and televisions can interfere with our internal circadian rhythm for sleep as well as expose us to UV rays similar to those we receive from the sun. If getting the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night is a problem, we may need to assess aspects of our lifestyle to determine what may be interfering with this most essential part of our lives.
4) Try a little pressure
Sometimes even our best efforts at keeping down stress and exposure to the elements just don’t cut it.
Tapping is a great way to improve your blood flow and remove any blockages in the tiny vessels of your face. To do this, use two fingertips on either side of you eye socket while gently tapping circularly around them with one finger at first then adding more as needed for pressure if necessary - all over including under eyes; start just above nose bridge & work down towards tear ducts. Finishing off with a cold towel over the eyes for several minutes also helps to cut down on inflammation to bring back brightness to the eyes.
5) Sun protection
Protection of your eyes from harmful UV rays from sunlight can also cut down on dry eyes, which may cause them to not look their brightest. A sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 on the lids and under-eye skin or sunglasses that cover this area also helps protect against oxidative damage that leads to wrinkles which subtract from the brightness of our eyes over time.
6) Magnetic eyelashes
Fuller, darker lashes are associated with youth and health, and they also add to the contrast between the white of the eyes and the lashes. This has been a secret of prominent figures, movie stars and beauty insiders for centuries that is widely accessible to the rest of us through the use of false lashes. Exercise caution when choosing lashes as some contain glue, formaldehyde, and other harsh ingredients that may either pull out our natural lashes damaging them permanently or cause them to fall out. Magnetic lashes by LaFarra & Co., curated by Dr. LaFarra, a triple board-certified physician with an autoimmune illness that left her eyes sensitive to many ingredients in eye beauty products, are made with natural ingredients and provide the perfect look for any occasion.
Whether your need to have brighter, more irresistible eyes is as urgent as a few days or you have a few weeks to wait, you have convenient options. Staying mindful that beauty is as much about the way we look on the outside as it is what we do to help us feel better from the inside, our potential for sustainable and irresistible eyes is limitless.
