Hi Rubyrose

The key thing is to strengthen the skin underneath the eye area and the main way to do this is to have a good home skincare routine. I would strongly recommend using the Dermaquest range. The B5 serum in particular can be used all over the face and up to the lash line on the eye area. Many of my clients have had outstanding results.
I m happy to provide you with extra one to one advice and my details can be found below.

Hi Rubyrose!
There are a few causes of dark circles - I've listed them below:
Anaemia, tiredness due to lack of sleep, liver problems, or it could be poor elimination of waste from the body, creating a build-up of toxins in the system, it could also be too much sugar or starch in the diet, or lack of fresh air and exercise, or it could be genetic.
A few ways to combat dark circles is to limit your sugar and starch intake and try to drink more water to help flush the system. Walking is a good way of stimulating the system to increase your oxygen intake! If you need any further help, please let me know!

Hi Ruby

Self massage is possibly the easiest (and cheapest) option for you: the idea is to use the gentlest pressure possible to move any excess fluid under the skin and the technique is to work from the centre out.

In the links below you can find some massage techniques for the face to help with the under eye puffiness; if you have any questions on the technique please do not hesitate to contact me.

I am also enclosing a link to my review of Pai Skincare rosehip oil where I also demonstrate more massage techniques for the face.

As a final tip, it's always good to apply water infused chamomile tea bags on your eyelids to defpuff the skin.

Take care

If you are looking at water puffiness and dark circles then Dermaquests new Eyebrite serum would be excellant.In trials clients have noticed a visible improvement in just 15 days.However if the puffiness and darkness is due to fat deposits under the eye(often hereditary)then only surgical removal,or possibly eye trough filler would resolve.Look for a really good clinic near you for advice from experts.I usually recommend the Court House clinics,for impartial and professional advice.
Good luck



Hi RubyRose,
Darkness under the eyes can be connected to your kidneys so drink loads of water. Also be sure not to put moisturisers and eye creams too close to the eyes as this can cause puffiness. Eye creams should be applied around the occipital bones of the eye.
Hope this helps xx

I find drinking 2 litres of water a day really helps and also this eye gel



Hi there, you need to support your liver & kidneys. Drinking more water is great advice generally but its particularly good to have hot water with lemon first thing in the morning - this helps flush them out after they've been working hard all night without any fluid intake. The lemon although acidic turns to alkaline in the body which helps balance the body's ph levels. Really try to avoid caffeine first thing as it will de-hydrate your organs even further.

Also why not try some reflexology to support & de-tox your liver?
