If you suffer from fall allergies, you’re familiar with the misery of constant sneezing, coughing, itching and those dreaded puffy, swollen, eyes that make you look exhausted, sick and older than your years. A strong reaction to one of fall’s many plant pollens and other allergens can cause fluid to accumulate under and around your eyes; this results in the unsightly, bloated look that no amount of makeup can hide. If your eyes also itch, you’ll be tempted to rub them, and doing so can cause redness and further inflammation which makes you look even worse
The best way to avoid the tender, puffy eyes and utter misery of allergic reactions is to treat the underlying cause. If using over-the-counter antihistamines doesn’t help, see your doctor for a prescription allergy medication or other treatments. If it’s too late for prevention, and you already look like you’ve cried for three days, there are several ways you can ease the symptoms.
When years of eye puffiness caused by allergic reactions is combined with the effects of environmental pollutants, fatigue, stress, sun exposure and aging, the skin around the eyes is gradually depleted of essential collagen and lipids. The result is decreased circulation, chronic eye puffiness, dark circles caused by minor capillary leakage and gradual loss of skin elasticity
Almost-Cooling Eye Gel from Hale Cosmeceuticals contains phospholipids, phosphatidylcholines and squalance; these substances closely match lipids found in the skin around your eyes. The soothing gel also fortifies your eye area with powerful antioxidants and essential nutrients such as osides, amino acids, iron, zinc and magnesium. While it replenishes moisture and soothes your eyes, it actually helps heal and normalize the skin around them. With a little help from Hale, you’ll be looking great in the fall allergy season and throughout the rest of the year.
