No matter how much makeup we apply, tired, mature eyes can easily give us away — especially if we’ve been skimping on our beauty sleep. Luckily, there are a few easy remedies you can do right now to reverse common signs of tiredness and aging. If you’re ready to find out how to get rid of tired eyes in a blink, read on!
If you have…
Tap a drop of an albumin-infused serum, like this Sudden Change under-eye firming serum ($8.97, Walmart), under the eye. This protein temporarily tightens skin to reduce swelling for up to four hours and improves skin’s elasticity to nix bags over time.
Place an eye mask containing caffeine (Acure Brightening Under Eye Supergreens Hydrogels, $19.95, Amazon) onto discoloration for 15 minutes. The java will speed blood circulation to move stagnant fluids that can pool below eyes, so skin looks brighter, fast.
Massage an eye cream rich in peptides (we like Olay Eyes Pro-Retinol Eye Treatment, $24.99, Target) onto closed eyelids twice a day for results in just 14 days. Studies show that peptides increase collagen and elastin production deep within skin to swiftly reverse sagginess.
