Tired face no more

Unlike women, men have limited options on hiding imperfection especially on their face. Women have makeup to cover up their dark circles and fatigued eyes. But correcting tired face and puffy eyes for men is a big trouble. Most of the time, they would just let go.

I’d like to inform all men out there, you have to be vain at times. There are some ways for men to accomplish it too.

Banish Puffiness
Fluid retention is the cause of puffy eyes and is an even bigger problem for those with sinus difficulties or allergies.

  • Try lightly tapping the lower orbital of your eyes with your ring finger from the inner to outer corner.
  • Try a cold compress on your eyes for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Smooth on an eye cream that soothes and brightens.

    Get Rid of Redness
    Before you head for the over-the-counter eye drops, try natural ones. Natural eye drops will calm your eyes using a sterile saline solution without chemicals.

    Soothe Tired Eyes at no cost
    Get a cool strawberry or cucumber and slice it in 1/8 of an inch thick. Your eyes will look clear and less puffy after you place a slice on each eye for around 10 minutes, and you can just continue with your regular face cleansing routine afterwards.

    Or, you can try a milk soother. All you need to do is soak a couple of large cotton balls in cold milk, and then place one cotton ball on each eye. After 10 or 15 minutes of relaxation, you can continue with your cleansing routine. Who needs touch-ups when you can get rid of your tired face in under a quarter of an hour?

    Additional Tips
  • Drink water! You’ve heard it before, but it will clean out your system and prevent puffy eyes from recurring.
  • Store your face creams in the refrigerator. Cold facial products will reduce swelling in your face and instantly calm the tired face effect.
