Since the #10yearchallenge has been trending, Instagram has been filled with ‘before and after’ pictures. And the one thing that got my attention was the wrinkles around the eyes. As people have aged, even if their face doesn’t show it, their eyes most certainly do! After all, the eyes let on a person’s true age. Those wrinkles around the eyes, the darkening under the eye and the overall brightness around the eyes, they all showed a drastic change. But, what if there was a way for you to reverse all that? Here are some products which you can use on a daily basis to make your eyes look brighter, younger and illuminated! Maybe 10 years later, if the #10yearchallenge comes up again, people might think you’re going backwards in terms of ageing.
NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate
This serum was basically made to be a girl’s best friend. Why, you ask? Because this serum has mastered the art of not just reducing but almost removing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. This is basically your very own under eye treatment and over eye treatment in one small little bottle. This FECC serum is actually a non-invasive option in dermal science, so you could say that this is a product that mimics the effects of Botox. In fact, you should see results in just 3 days of regular use! If you want to get rid of wrinkles, fine lines and even puffy eyes, just apply one drop to your upper eyelid and lower eyelid each, twice a day.
Think of these eye masks as SOS for your eyes. Have to go for a party at night but the baby kept you up all night? Have to attend a morning wedding but you had a late night at the sangeet? Meeting your better half but you were busy working till late the night before? Just apply a Shiseido eye mask and let it do all the work, while you just sit back and relax! Known to reduce wrinkles in less than 15 minutes, these eye masks come in handy when you need to make your eyes look bright and vibrant ASAP.
