My sleep schedule is so off. Even now it’s 2:30 a.m. and I’m wide awake. Bad discipline. If I were 25 I wouldn’t care. But I’m 35. Doesn’t help the face.
Anyone else having trouble with sleep so that it’s making their faces look not so hot?
If I start going to bed on time starting like in June will my eyes/face look good by August?
Sounds crazy I know…:)

Try eye hope by philosophy. You can get it online or at the Sephora counter at JC Penny. It does wonders. I have a horid sleep schedule and I am older than you, and I swear by it. It is an advanced anti-aging eye cream.
Also, try ERASE paste by benefit. It evens out your face and gets rid of the redness and stuff. You can get it online or at the Sephora counter.

I’m only 31, but my sleep schedule is horrible and I’m a teacher so the stress really shows under my eyes! Really dark circles. . . I will try it

I’m 36 and in the past couple of years I’ve noticed more bagginess under my eyes. It really started when I had my daughter and stopped sleeping, and now that she does sleep it’s still a problem, at least more than it used to be. I agree, it’s depressing. One thing I think I need to do is massively increase my water intake, because I’m dehydrated, which causes water retention. I may try the preparation H too.

I still have to get a hold of that “eye hold.” I just remembered this post I wrote last night. B/c I was up late and looked at my eyes in the mirror, lol. Wedding’s coming in less than six weeks. Gotta get moving. So much to do, so little time.

Chanel has some under-eye concealer, that they can match to your skin tone….I use mine daily..I apply a tiny amount with a brush, then I dab with finger…. I think I use “sunlight”

I just got Dermalogica Total Eye Care cream and it works great for dark circles…thus far! I always seem to love dark circle solutions for about a month and then they stop working, but so far this has been working great and it’s been longer than a month!

If you are able to do so comfortably, try sleeping with your upper body slightly elevated with a pillow (head, neck and shoulders.) The fluid under your eyes will be less likely to pool there as it would if you rested flat. Drink water to help hydrate your system properly. Use a cool eye mask made of lavender, chamomile or cucumber. Wear sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection that cover the whole eye area. Take breaks from the computer!
Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-puff eye roller has caffeine in it which helps to reduce puffiness and redness. I use this and a gentle moisturizer with sunscreen under makeup during the day.
At night, an eye creme with Retinol-A helps to soothe and restore. Do not use cremes with Retinol-A during the day as I understand they make the skin more susceptible to sun damage.
