HOW DO I DITCH THE DARK CIR­CLES UN­DER MY EYES?

Women's Health (South Africa) - - LETTER FROM THE EDITOR -

AN­SWER Keep your paws off your peep­ers for a start. “When you rub tired eyes, you stim­u­late soft pig­ment that’s de­posited un­der your skin, giv­ing it a darker ap­pear­ance,” says skin­care spe­cial­ist Deb­bie Thomas. Plus, rub­bing in­creases pres­sure in the blood ves­sels un­der your eyes. Also steer clear of the te­quila shots: “Ex­cess al­co­hol and salt can make your cells re­tain ex­tra wa­ter, lead­ing to puffi­ness.” To avoid rac­coon eyes the morn­ing af­ter, drink plenty of H2O to help flush away tox­ins. Use a colour-cor­rect­ing eye con­cealer if nec­es­sary.
