Dealing with Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles

Enhance Circulation for Sensitive Skin!

To start, it’s essential to understand that eye creams may occasionally exacerbate puffy eyes and dark circles. This is because the delicate skin around the eyes lacks the robust blood supply found in other facial areas. Consequently, it’s more susceptible to the effects of synthetic chemicals, and the process of skin hydration takes longer due to the slower cell renewal rate.

The Origins of Eye Troubles

The causes of puffy eyes and dark circles can range from inadequate sleep to genetic factors, but a healthy diet and proper rest can significantly alleviate these issues. Below, we outline techniques to promote blood circulation, which can be seamlessly integrated into your daily skincare regimen. These techniques also aid in the removal of toxins from the eye area, ensuring that puffy eyes and dark circles need not be a permanent concern. A natural remedy is within reach!

What’s the Next Step?

You can observe positive results by incorporating a Natural Skin Oil into your routine,
using the following method:

Procedure:

1. Find a comfortable, relaxed sitting position.

2. Place your middle and index fingers together on the upper bridge of your nose.

3. Gently move your fingertips outward toward your temples, applying slight pressure just
below your brow bones and above your eyelids. Avoid any pressure on your eyelids themselves;
focus on the firm, bony area just above them (see image above).

4. When you reach your temples, engage in a gentle circular massage for a few moments.

5. Repeat the same process along the bony region just below your eyes, working outward toward your temples. Once at your temples, again, perform a circular massage.

Important Note:

Be cautious not to apply any pressure to your eyelids or eyes during this massage.
Remember, puffy eyes and dark circles need not become a permanent part of your life.
Natural remedies are at your disposal!

Natural Skin Oils

Dermatologists often recommend a variety of natural skin oils for their various skincare benefits. These natural oils can help hydrate, soothe, and improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. Here are some commonly recommended natural skin oils:

Coconut Oil:
Known for its excellent moisturising properties, coconut oil is rich in fatty acids that help
hydrate the skin. It’s also often used for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Jojoba Oil:
Jojoba oil is very similar to the natural oils produced by our skin, making it an excellent choice
for balancing skin and regulating oil production. It’s often recommended for acne-prone and sensitive skin.

Argan Oil:
Derived from the kernels of the argan tree, argan oil is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and
fatty acids. It’s great for moisturising the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and improving skin elasticity.

Rosehip Seed Oil:
Rich in vitamins A and C, as well as essential fatty acids, rosehip seed oil is known for its ability to rejuvenate the skin, fade scars, and improve skin texture.

Olive Oil:
Olive oil is a natural emollient that’s used to moisturise and soften the skin. It’s also a source of antioxidants and can be used for massages.

Grapeseed Oil:
Grapeseed oil is lightweight and suitable for all skin types. It’s often used for moisturising, reducing the appearance of scars, and as a carrier oil for essential oils.

Sweet Almond Oil:
This oil is rich in vitamins A and E and is a great option for moisturising and soothing
the skin. It’s especially beneficial for dry or sensitive skin.

Tea Tree Oil:
While not typically used directly on the skin, tea tree oil is known for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It’s often diluted with a carrier oil and used for acne and other skin conditions.

Lavender Oil:
Lavender oil is valued for its calming and soothing properties. It can be used to reduce skin
irritation and redness, and It’s often included in skincare products for its pleasant aroma.

Avocado Oil:
Avocado oil is rich in vitamins A, D, and E, making it a nourishing choice for dry and ageing skin. It helps to hydrate and improve skin texture.


It’s important to note that while these natural oils can offer various benefits for the skin, not all are suitable for every skin type. If you’re considering using natural oils for skincare, It’s a good idea to consult with a dermatologist or perform a patch test to ensure they work well with your specific skin type and any potential allergies or sensitivities.

A Final Thought

Our suggestion is to consistently use a Natural Skin Oil, as endorsed by our Dermatologist,
to soothe and hydrate the delicate skin around your eyes.

Alternatively, Cosmolaser offers treatments designed to firm and lift the cheek area, addressing wrinkles around the eyes effectively.
