This is where we share the latest tips and trends in male grooming. We post about grooming tips, dealing with problem skin conditions and ways to achieve the latest styles.

Bright Eyes

Your eyes give away the tell tale signs of your life style. Late nights, sun exposure, smoking and alcohol all take their toll on the delicate eye area. Unfortunately the older you get the greater the challenge to disguise these tell tale signs. You may suffer from one or more of the following most common eye conditions, but hopefully there are some simple solutions to help combat them.

 

Dark Circles

Normally caused by dark blood vessels with poor circulation. Particularly when you’ve had a night on the town, feeling run-down or tired.

Regular application of a good eye cream helps to stimulate, increase firmness and elasticity.

Another little tip, place your used tea bags in the fridge overnight. Laying down, place the cooled tea bags on your eyes for 10 or 15 minutes. The caffeine will help to stimulate fresh blood to the eye area to flush the caffeine thus bringing  oxygen and nutrients directly to the offending area.

If you are looking for a quick fix, concealer is the answer. Many reputable male brands are now offering products especially formulated for men. Recipe for Men offer different shades to match your skin tone. Using your ring finger apply a small amount under the eye and gently blend from the outer edge in toward the nose, be careful not to drag the skin and use more of a patting action until you have achieved the desired coverage.

 

Puffy Morning Eyes

Caused by pooling of fluid under the eyes during sleep.

Eye gels with stimulating ingredients to constrict, decongest and increase circulation to the eye area help dramatically. Leaving the area feeling cool and refreshed. Apply with ring finger patting gently from the nose to the outer edge of the eye this will help drain any fluid out toward the nodes situated above the ears just in front of the hairline.

 

Crow’s Feet, Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Caused by squinting, sun damage and general deterioration of collagen around the eye area.

Always wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun rays and don’t forget your SPF. Go for a daily moisturiser with SPF for protection all year round.  A good anti-ageing eye cream with SPF will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, Dermalogica age reversal eye complex contains retinol the only topical ingredient to reverse the signs of ageing. If you are looking for a more instant result why not try a course of non-surgical eye lift treatments for quick, longer lasting results.
