Top tips for a youthful look!

Smooth, lift, plump up... Here are two sure-fire ways to get back your Bambi eyes.

An ageing look

As we age, our faces lose volume and our facial contours change. Ditto for our eye contours. It tends to be our 'tear troughs' that first show signs of ageing. This is the area below our eyes, between our cheekbones and nose. It begins to sag as soon our skin loses elasticity and in turn leads to furrows along our nasolabial folds. This sagging can make us look worn and tired and, yes, make up can provide a quick fix. The good news is that there are also treatments available for a longer lasting effect. Here are our top two!

Solution 1: fillers

Fillers such as hyaluronic acid injections can alter the eye contours by plumping up sagging skin. Injections designed for tear troughs have been around since 2007 and formulae are constantly being improved. These jabs are bruise, swelling and pain-free and can last for up to 18 months. Their effect is immediate: hyaluronic acid restores the facial contour and lifts the nasolabial folds. Furrows are filled, leaving our faces youthfully plump and fresh. If you don't mind needles, these injections are the First Class one way tickets to a youthful look! 

Solution 2: gentle, effective hyaluronic acid creams

Creams don't work as well as fillers, but they still help to restore a youthful gaze. It's best to start using them as soon as your tear troughs start to deepen and make sure you apply a suitable treatment. And the star ingredient is, once again, hyaluronic acid! Hylauronic acid-based eye contour treatments instantly hydrate the fragile skin around our eyes, adding volume in the process. They're great for dry skin, restore mature skin's elasticity and, most of all, zap wrinkles. Opt for a treatment that contains micro-metric hyaluronic acid and apply a dollop to any wrinkles, carefully tapping it in for immediately youthful eyes. Added plus? Plump skin irons out signs of tiredness!
