Eye massage you hear me say, please don't run away just yet!
Now I am being straight with you and admitting I nicked this post idea (or rather seriously thought this needed sharing & took it upon myself to do so) from the fabulous Caroline aka Mrs Hirons!
Firstly I love her! I adore her blog and I am obsessed with her YouTube Channel! and most of all, I trust her advice and I would love to have a consultation with her one day! Enough gushing for you?
Well this post is based on her Luxe Eye Creams video, here (Go Watch! If you haven't already, of course) and her words of wisdom about massaging the eye cream in, instead of patting the cream in! ''It's OK, if you're a fairy!'' This is in her own words!
I am and have been guilty of maybe being a bit too gentle with the eye area, but that's what we're all told isn't it? Be careful, the skin is so thin you don't want to damage it, you'll get wrinkles if you pull on that area, etc, etc...
Well since watching said video I have plucked up the courage to apply my eye cream in the way Caroline advised and OH MY! Amazed is not the word!
Seriously I have seen a real reduction in my fine lines and in the puffiness of my eyelids!!! I have quite hooded lids and although this is just my eye shape this technique has also reduced the appearance of them. I so wish I had taken before pictures!
Essentially what you're doing is draining excess fluid from that area by massaging the cream in around the orbital bone in upwards and outwards movements. Again Go Watch the video! That way I don't have to worry about describing it and you get to see her in action!
I am honestly staggered by the results and although I'm no expert, Caroline is, so I would urge you to watch her videos and give the technique a go. Her blog is here if you fancy a read!
Please, please let me know if you watched the video, if you've tried this technique and most importantly if it worked for you!
Also share this if you did like it I mean it would be rather mean for us to keep it ourselves now, wouldn't it?
