|You don't have to just accept your tired eyes. Rejuvenate them naturally!|
It’s hard to wake up in the morning and see signs of aging and tiredness all over the face. As a society, we move too fast, eat too little nutrients, are overworked, underslept and dehydrated. Our faces and skin show it. But it can be dealt with and treated with these simple tricks and tips.
Lemon Water Cleanse: On a more practical note, try starting your day with a hot cup of lemon water. Simply make hot water as you would for tea, add the juice of 1/2 a lemon and sweeten with honey or stevia to taste if needed. This cleanses your digestive system, detoxifies the skin and blood, jump starts your energy and metabolism and neutralizes your body ph to a more alkaline level. Disease and instability of health thrive in an acidic body. The opposite of that is an alkaline body. Be healthy. Start your day alkaline. (side note: remember how lemon water cleanses the digestive system? the kidneys are part of that. You know those bags and dark circles under your eyes? Those are from overwhelmed kidneys.)
Face Massage: About those overwhelmed kidneys and their corresponding eye bags. When the kidneys and even liver are over taxed, the lymph in the eyes begin to back up. Basically, the bags are just toxic congestion that needs to move through and out of your system. So if you're ready to get rid of them, definitely drink the lemon water and THEN do this exercise.
- Close your eyes. Place your first four fingers (not the thumb) under the eye and gently apply pressure with your finger-tips along and under the eye/eye bag area.
- take your middle fingers and gently sweep the same area from the inside to the outer corner underneath the eye - be careful not to stretch the skin.
- Repeat this action 5-10 times when applying moisturizer morning and night. this will aid in keeping the area flushed.
Steam With Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus Shower Spray is a great addition to any anti-aging routine. Simply turn up the steam in the shower and spray the eucalyptus onto the walls and into the steam. This will allow the pores in the face to open and activate the anti-microbial cleansing properties of this healing plant. As well, inhaling the the steam will invite the herbal strength to cleanse your bronchial passages, allowing for a full body cleanse that will reflect in your skin.
Drink Your Green Juice: There's a lot of hype about green juice these days and it's for good reason! Greens, similar to lemon water, alkalize the water, making the body a fertile ground for beauty to grow. Greens tone the skin and blood, adding multiple vitamins, minerals and nutrients like silica, collagen, elastin and vitamin k to your insides and outsides. This results in eyes that are brighter, skin that is tighter and cheeks that have that natural rosy hue. Who doesn't want that? (don't be too afraid - there are PLENTY of delicious recipes online for incredibly tasting juice!)
