No sleep? No bother. Brighten your eyes with one of these miracle treatments
You’re on stage, belting Wonderwall to a roaring crowd.
Then the next thing you know, you’ve awoken in a bath of your own sweat, encased in your duvet with half a pizza stuck to your head and last night’s makeup smudged on your sheets. It’s then that you remember that the ‘stage’ you performed on was in fact the tram home, the ‘roaring crowd’ a group of unsuspecting tourists and you left your dignity somewhere between the final round of shots and the mad dash to the chippy.
It’s safe to say, you were a little merry last night.
Fortunately, the beauty world is here to rescue your hangover woes with a gilded trove of eye elixirs. Whilst they can’t do anything about your embarrassing antics (you’ll have to face the flashbacks solo later), this dream team of wonder creams will refresh, revive and rejuvenate tired eyes, so your boss will be none the wiser.
When you feel like you've spent the night in the gutter, what better way to revive yourself then with 24k gold. This premium formula blends 24k gold with manuka honey for a luxury beauty awakening. Don’t underestimate the power of a roller ball applicator. The metal ball cools and soothes puffy skin, gently massaging a blend of Chamomile and White Floral into the delicate eye area. Puffiness is reduced, skin is more supple and your eyes are miraculously brighter. Your boss will hardly notice you’ve only had two hours sleep.
If your night out ended in a gorging of greasy takeaways, then this ones for you. Skin Republics Brightening Eye Mask is packed full of anti-oxidant rich green tea, mulberry and coffee bean to combat bags. The detoxifying trio target pesky dark circles, restoring radiance by reducing puffiness. The mask is also enriched with Vitamins C and B3 to assist with cell renewal, improve hydration and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Those guilty of leaving their eye makeup on overnight, take note. The skin under and around the eyes is the thinnest and most delicate on the body, so sleeping in that heavy smoky isn’t going to do you any good. To nourish your eyes after a night out, a few dabs of the Trilogy Very Gentle Eye Cream will work wonders. The cream contains antioxidant-rich maqui berry to reduce redness and inflammation, SyriCalm® to strengthen the natural skin barrier function and relieve stressed skin and soothing aloe vera to maintain moisture balance.
If you could carry your weekly shop in your under eye bags, then try a more powerful serum. Don’t let the technical jargon of Dermaquest’s 3D Eye Lift put you off – the serum is a powerful blend of plant stem cells and potent peptides, which are chains of amino acids that can help encourage collagen production. The effect is a hydrated, toned and youthful-looking skin with increased elasticity, a welcome combination after a night out on the town.
The Mekka of natural beauty, Holland and Barret have organic treatments that can ease any beauty ailment (no matter how much you had to drink last night). The Dr Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Eye Serum is a party girl’s saviour. The blend of organic oils and fruit extracts are rich in fatty acids an absorb into the skin fast, quickly working to hydrate, refresh and renew tired, dull skin.
