Simple Skin Care Tips You Might Not Have Known

Everyone has their pet peeve when it comes to their skin, but don’t worry! There are some easier fixes than you might have known about!

Crow’s Feet:

– Use your face cream with retinol up to your lower lid at night. Unless your eyes are super sensitive, they can handle it!

– In the morning, hold a damp washcloth over the area for a few minutes, then apply a lightweight moisturizer. The water acts as an instant plump that should last until the afternoon.

Puffy Under Eyes:

– Use a moisturizing eye cream, especially with caffeine

– Pop a wet washcloth in the fridge for a few minutes, then hold them on the bags for a few – just like an ice pack

– Sleep propped up a little – this allows the fluid that makes your eyes puffy to drain

Blemishes:

– Spot treat with .5 percent salicylic acid (for a whitehead or blackhead) or 2.5 percent benzoyl peroxide (for anything else). Keep doing this, morning and night – it may take up to a week

– Try spot treating with hydrocortisone cream… glob it on and let it soak in for 15 minutes. This is the same stuff they would inject into a pimple to reduce inflammation

– Try spot treating with Visine. Yup- eye drops. You know how they reduce redness in the eye? Well it also works on your face. It won’t help treat the blemish though
