Puffy eyes can have causes that aren’t due to underlying disease. Examples include aging, hereditary differences, allergies, fluid retention from large salt intake, trauma, or lack of sleep.

With aging, the tissues around your eyes, including some of the muscles supporting your eyelids, weaken. 

Fat tends to migrate southward, into the area under your eye, with age, because years of gravity mean that the muscles and collagen around it are weaker and less likely to hold it in place. Once there, it can be targeted by fluid that swells its cells; fatty tissue tends to be pretty vulnerable to swelling like that.

Other factors can contribute to under-eye bags, including:

  • Not getting enough sleep
  • Smoking tobacco
  • Allergies
  • Retaining fluid (often after waking up, or after eating salty food)
  • Inheriting this condition (it can run in families).

While having bags or shadows under your eyes may not look especially attractive, it is usually harmless. However, if swelling of the eye area is painful, itchy, red or does not go away, see your ophthalmologist.

Also, The water retention under the eyes is also known as lymphatic fluid. It’s a product of the body’s lymphatic system, which drains off toxins and transports lymphatic fluid (a combination of water and white blood cells) around the body to fight off infection. This liquid is what ends up pooled under the eyes in the fat cells, and there are certain things that seem to exacerbate it.

Dark Circles Are Caused By Thin Skin And Heredity

The circles of dark skin beneath our eyes that seem to signal. Darkness under the eyes develops because of the increasing thinness of the skin there as we age; the older we get, the more it thins, and the more dark blood vessels underneath become visible. Why does it thin? Same reason fat migrates out of the eye socket: our body loses its ability to hold things up, and it sags. It’s already one of the thinnest parts of skin on the body.

Heredity, however, also plays a huge role in the development of dark eye circles. It’s called genetic hyper-pigmentation, and it means that some people simply inherit darker skin around their eyes from their parents and grandparents.

Can I improve the appearance of my under-eye bag?

There are strategies to help improve the appearance of under-eye bags. If someone has slight fat prolapse pushing forward, and has a certain anatomy of the bone structure under the eyes where there is space in the tear trough, fillers such as a hyaluronic acid filler in the Restylane or Juvederm family can be used to blend the transition between the elevation of the fat pocket and the hollow of the tear trough.  Fillers of choice for this area are either Restylane Refyne for someone who needs a lot of volume, or Belotero.

Darkness caused by the excess brown pigment (melanin) can be faded with topical products or in-office chemical peels. Kojic acid and vitamin C are on the gentler end of the spectrum, lightening pigment gradually. A big winner ingredient, EyeBright formulated with a trio of patented multi-peptides that yield true results, the active ingredients in EyeBright are clinically proven to reduce dark circles and under-eye puffiness and diminish the depth and appearance of deep wrinkles.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics organic eye bright intensive serum, is loaded with plant stem cells, botanically derived Hyaluronic Acid Spheres to fiber, collagen boosting and ultra skin firming and wrinkle repairing ingredient and fiber and cellular rebuilding Amino Acids.

Matrixyl 3000, matrikines anti-wrinkle complex which helps: – reverse the chronological aging as attested by the regulation of senescence markers. Aging skin tends to behave like young skin. – reduce the cutaneous photodamage by restructuring the fragile network of the papillary dermis.

Palmitoyl Triepeptide-3, this peptide, consisting of three amino acids, promotes collagen synthesis by mimicking the skin’s natural processes. It is seen as an alternative to a collagen injection as it boosts the connective tissue growth factor necessary to produce collagen. Clinical studies have shown it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the skin’s firmness and moisture level.

EyeBright, formulated with a trio of patented multi-peptides that yield true results, the active ingredients in EyeBright are clinically proven to reduce dark circles and under-eye puffiness and diminish the depth and appearance of deep wrinkles.

The difference of the regular, high-molecular hyaluronic acid (HA) and low-molecular-weight HA is that the low-molecular weight HA has been split into smaller fragments. Thereby, these smaller fragments can no longer form a gel with water like the large molecules, but they can penetrate the skin much easier and have actually a better anti-irritant and regenerating effect once absorbed by skin.

Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid makes it possible to enter the skin. It consists of molecules of 50 kD and smaller and ensures that water is stored in the connective tissue of the skin. The additional moisture not only makes the skin more firm and firmer, but also visibly reduces wrinkles.

Hyaluronic Acid is a sugar molecule also known as a glycosaminoglycan found in the dermis. It’s a major structural component of our skin. This jelly-like lubricant cushions our joints and plays a pivotal role in repair after an injury has occurred in the body. I’m pretty sure you’ve already heard that HA can hold up to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water – and is responsible for giving skin its plumpness and volume.

As we age, this sugar molecule gets depleted, like collagen and elastin, so our skin needs extra support to retain moisture and stay supple. This is where hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvéderm® come in, or topical forms of HA you most commonly see as serums. But not all HA’s are created equal – they vary by molecular weight, origin, and how they were manufactured – all of which impacts performance in the skin.

Skin aging and hyaluronic acid

Over time and due to things like sun exposure and gravity, your skin gradually goes through an aging process; the skin, soft tissue and skeletal support in the face changes, first resulting in wrinkles. Over time, aging skin causes things like flattening of the epidermal-dermal interphase, a deterioration of the dermis, loss of elasticity, less blood flow from a loss of blood vessels, poorer collagen content, poorer hydration and melanocyte activity, and so on. Visually, on top of wrinkles, this can be seen as skin thinning, hyperpigmentation, and sagging.

One of the reasons youthful skin seems so hydrated is because it contains lots of hyaluronic acid in the dermis. As we age, this content decreases and by the time of adulthood, the content is as low as 5% of this baseline.To add to all of this, as we lose the hyaluronic acid in our skin, this also affects tissue volume and elasticity, also linked with hydration. It’s no wonder why hyaluronic acid is so popular as a dermal filler and in ‘anti-aging’ cosmetic products. Applied topically, hyaluronic acid has been shown to act as a potent humectant, can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and helps to provide smoothness and softening to the skin.

hyaluronic acid plays an important role in wound healing and scar formation. In its natural form, hyaluronic acid exists at a very high molecular weight. Upon environmental changes, for example pH changes in response to something like injury, enzymes are stimulated to start to break down hyaluronic acid to lower molecular weight fragments. Different weights of hyaluronic acid have been shown to influence macrophages of the immune system, important actors in wound healing, in different ways. As hyaluronic acid is broken down to lower molecular weight molecules, they seem to stimulate macrophages to have a pro-inflammatory response, one of the first steps to wound healing.

In contrast, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid is demonstrated to stimulate an anti-inflammatory response from macrophages. Although these are two extreme affects, macrophages are multifaceted and often exist within a spectrum of these extremes. As a result of these interactions, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid has been found to contribute to scar formation, which was minimized when higher molecular weight hyaluronic acid was found in the wounded area. All this suggests that the different weights of hyaluronic acid play an important role together in wound healing.

The lower-molecular-weight HA raw material is always priced more expensively, and certain brands will use this as a key claim to position [themselves] in the prestige category. While HA is great at drawing moisture into skin, it needs some help keeping it there. Typically, products containing HA are formulated with occlusive or emollient ingredients that will help lock it in.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Hyaluronic acid is plant-based, organic loaded with low molecular hyaluronic acid and Helichrysum which is a scarce and precious plant oil to help lock it in!

Protective effect of helichrysum on skin:

  • strong impact against free radicals
  • significantly stimulates collagen production
  • stimulates tissue changes
  • improves microcirculation and skin detoxification
  • antiseptic that purifies the skin.

Preservatives prolong the shelf life of a product and protect water-based products from contamination and microbial and mold growth. A preservative is a natural or synthetic ingredient that is added to a product to keep it safe from spoilage. Oils do not require preservatives because microbes cannot grow in a water-free environment. A necessary part of formulating, preservatives ensure the microbiological safety and stability of a product and prevent it from changing over time. Without preservation, your skincare product wouldn’t stay fresh, effective or safe to use for very long.

Traditional skincare products are loaded with artificial preservatives to help them remain fresh for the duration between the date of manufacture and the time you finish using it. Some commonly used chemical preservatives that safeguard against bacteria and fungi to extend the shelf life of a product are:

  • Organic acids, such as benzoic acid, sorbic acid, levulinic acid, anisic acid
  • Aldehydes, such as formaldehyde
  • Glycol ethers, such as phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol
  • Isothiazolinones, such as methylisothiazolinone
  • Parabens, such as methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben.

Chemical preservatives work by irritating the cell walls of bacteria and entering and killing them as a result, That’s why they are effective but that’s also why they can be hazardness. Chemical preservatives can’t distinguish between bacterial or human cells. If you’re applying to your face skincare products everyday, these harsh chemicals can get absorbed and build up in your body over time.

Well known Preservative like parabens have been widely used as the go-to preservative since the 50’s. With scientific studies generating concern over their effect on the environment and health, parabens have become quite the controversial ingredient. And for good reason: Methylparaben, with its reputation for being an endocrine disruptor, has no place in any skincare product.

This nasty chemicals aren’t just hard to pronounce, they’re very hard on skin. Synthetically produced preservatives may be great at keeping bacteria away but they’ve also been linked to allergic reactions, contact dermatitis, irritation and lots of serious health problems.

PLANTS IN SKINCARE

Did you know that plants make such ideal skincare ingredients? They are able to be a powerful preservative and skin-restorative at the same time. Plants continuously have to fight off different microbes including bacteria and fungi in order to thrive in any environment. To protect themselves against pathogens, plants produce an arsenal of antimicrobial chemicals, antimicrobial proteins, and antimicrobial enzymes that serve as plant defense mechanisms. Botanicals also contain powerful antioxidants which also function as preservatives to prevent oxidation of the natural ingredients in a formula. plants are nourished by the pure mineral spring waters that flow through the mountains and nutrient-rich soils that have been untouched for centuries.

Smart brand like I’m Fabulous Cosmetics are using antioxidants and essential oils with preservative properties—such as turmeric, rosemary, oregano, thyme, and tea tree—and they’re even redesigning packaging to limit exposure to air and patented Miron violet glass packaging to keep the active ingredients alive and super fresh, Dr. Lyrac, says.

Safe preservatives list includes:

Food grade preservatives (like potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate); alcohols (organic ethanol, grape alcohol, benzyl alcohol, and witch hazel); and a short list of others that are sourced from plants (like gluconolactone, ethylhexyglycerin, triiostearyl citrate) and some that are synthetic but non-toxic preservatives, like dehydroacetic acid.

Beware of “greenwashing,” or brands that represent themselves as cleaner than they are. One sign? They say they are not using parabens but instead are using formaldehyde slow-releasers:  They appear as quaternium-15, DMDM hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, and diazolidinyl urea.

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin type A (Botox) is one of the most well-known methods for warding off wrinkles and other signs of aging. It’s a prescription medication that’s injected into the muscles of the face.

Botox works by stopping the muscle that it’s injected into from contracting, so it appears relaxed and smooth. Botox is effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing new wrinkles from forming. This treatment may be considered expensive, however. Prices vary by provider and state, but you can expect to pay $100 to upwards of $800 per treatment depending on the areas you treat and if it is a physician or a nurse injecting it.

The effects are temporary, so you need repeat treatments to maintain the effects.

There is also Creams and serums alternatives to botox using Syn®-Ake peptide which acts by reducing muscle cell contraction, smoothing mimic wrinkles in a short period, and is reversible. It is useful in anti-aging products and wrinkle treatment products, especially those targeting expression lines.

Wrinkles relaxer serum

Syn®-Ake peptide is an anti-wrinkle active compound based on a synthetic tripeptide that mimics the effect of Waglerin 1, a peptide that is found in the venom of the Temple Viper, Tropidolaemus wagleri, excellent results can be seen. The I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Caviar luxury lifting serum is an excellent organic skincare product to be used as an alternative to Botox and Dysport or to be used following the treatment as a daily moisturizer, wrinkles relaxer.

Tips for healthy skin

Taking care of your skin can help slow down the aging process. To help keep your skin healthy, basic maintenance goes a long way. Follow these tips:

  • Always wear SPF on your face. There are many lotions and makeup products that have SPF already added.
  • Wear sunglasses with large lenses to help reduce sun exposure on the delicate skin around your eyes.
  • Wear a hat when in the sun to further protect your skin.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink a lot and use a hydrating face mask twice a week.
  • Remove makeup before sleep.
  • Start using a good-quality anti-aging organic cream and Serums at bedtime and in the morning, as early as possible.
  • Eat a well-balanced, healthy diet.

Face Exercises

exercise can help ward off aging in the body, why not in the face, too? A method reportedly used by celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Cindy Crawford, FaceExercise uses cupping and facial massage to improve blood flow and circulation. It’s also said to work the lymphatic system to clear out toxins in the tissues.

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammationblood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Facial cupping has been shown to: increase oxygen-rich blood circulation.
Because of this, the practice is said to:

  • brighten skin.
  • minimize the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
  • tone chin, jawline, neck, and décolletage.
  • decrease puffiness.
  • regulate oil production.
  • improve nutrient delivery and product absorption.

What is PHA?

Polyhydroxy acids are ingredients such as gluconolactone and lactobionic acid. They’re supposed to be as effective as AHAs, but less sensitizing. PHAs, also known as polyhydroxy acids, are the newest acid to take over ingredients lists and news feeds all over the beauty world. “PHAs (Poly-hydroxy acids) fall under the AHA family. They are much larger in size compared to the more common AHAs like glycolic and lactic acids.

Because of their larger structure, PHAs do not penetrate as deeply into the skin but rather work on the outer layers of the skin. PHAs tend to be less sensitizing and gentler as compared to other chemical exfoliants. PHAs are used on the skin for its exfoliating, skin smoothing, moisturizing, and anti-aging benefits… PHA may be a good alternative in patients with sensitive skin, including those with rosacea and eczema, who cannot tolerate AHAs and BHAs.

RESULTS:

PHAs (polyhydroxy acids like lactobionic acid) are similar to alpha-hydroxyacids but they are more superficial—acting and less irritating.  A dry, sensitive skin type with pigment and a little sun damage, for example, might use PHAs followed by moisturizer (or combined) to brighten, smooth, hydrate and plump the skin quickly.

POLYHYDROXY ACID (PHA)

TYPE OF INGREDIENT: Exfoliant.

MAIN BENEFITS: Repairs skin, exfoliates away dead skin, reduces the appearance of skin damage.

WHO SHOULD USE IT: PHAs are usually safe for all skin types, but especially for those with oily or acne-prone skin.

HOW OFTEN CAN YOU USE IT: To start, try using PHAs three times a week. You can use it in the form of a toner, a face wash, or even a serum.

WORKS WELL WITH: Other acids in low concentrations.

DON’T USE WITH: Other acids in very high concentrations, retinoids if you’re particularly sensitive.

How to Use It

PHAs are best used in products that are left on the skin for an extended period of time to give them sufficient time to loosen the bonds between the outermost epidermis/skin cells. Products like liquid exfoliant, toner, mask, or moisturizer, always best to chose one that is organic and free of toxics and villain’s ingredients.

A must try the I’m Fabulous organic Renew serum with Polyhydroxy acids.

The skin is the largest organ in the body and can therefore pick up dirt and grime, some believe it is possible to “purge” the skin and remove all the “bad” stuff that’s clogging pores. This isn’t really true. Along with a poor diet and excessive cleansing and exfoliation — can deplete the skin’s outermost layer.

Also known as the stratum corneum or skin barrier, it helps keep skin healthy by blocking substances that can cause premature aging, among other damage.

No matter what you think about the trending buzzword, you can’t deny there are days when your skin could use a detox. Some days our skin is extra dull or breaking out, especially after long vacations, and we know it’s because we slept in our makeup, ate too much bad food, neglected our skin after beach days, or, god forbid, all of the above. If any other part of your body isn’t functioning properly, from your gut (too much junk food) to your brain (too much stress), it can show up on your skin because your pores get clogged up when trying to compensate for the other incorrectly functioning systems in your body.

When you haven’t detoxed your skin, you will notice the appearance of inflammation, redness, and blemishes. A regular skincare routine that includes a skin detox can reverse and limit these changes. Additionally, it can brighten your skin and reduce the signs of skin damage caused by toxins.

Here’s why detoxification can happen

  • Stress – That skin redness you’re experiencing is a result of stress. High levels of stress do show up on your face. Pimples, inflammation, and redness are signs of slower cell turnover and increased sebum.
  • Congestion – Makeup, hair follicles, dead cells, pollution, and oil can accumulate in the pores and lead to congestion. This results in breakouts and dehydrated and dull skin.
  • Too much sugar – One of the most significant contributors to acne is sugar. Excess processed sugar in your diet causes inflammation.
  • Lifestyle habits – Surefire ways of introducing toxins in your body are smoking, alcohol, not drinking enough water, and inadequate sleep.

Here are a few hints that indicate you need to reboot your skin:

  • A skin tone that’s patchy or uneven
  • Dull, sallow skin
  • Oily skin
  • Sensitive and or dry skin
  • Sagging and wrinkled skin

How To Do A Skin Detox?

From dietary changes to skincare products to brushing to exercise and more, many ways can help your body eliminate toxins and impurities. They can instantly transform your dull and tired complexion while improving your energy levels.

Think of all that you put into your body – medicines, alcohol, and unprocessed food continue to work their way through your bloodstream. Skin detox is crucial to get rid of these contaminants.

Double cleansing

No matter your skin type or concerns, cleansing should be a part of your daily routine. Double cleansing involves using a pre-cleanser and a cleanser. A pre-cleanser eliminates pollutants that accumulate throughout the day and makes the cleanser’s job easier.

Be conscious of your skin type when shopping for a cleanser, preferably choose an organic cleanser free of toxic ingredients and preservatives.

Exfoliate

A gentle exfoliator is vital in skin detox to bring back your baby-soft skin. An exfoliator helps remove flaky skin cells and buffs away dead skin, leaving you with clearer skin. Adding exfoliation to your skincare routine could help! Besides adding a healthy glow to your skin, exfoliation can also help with a number of other skin-related issues.

Benefits Of Skin Detox

The skin covers every inch of your body and is the first line of defense against the outside world. More than 600 sweat glands, 100 oil glands, 1,000 nerve endings, and 20 feet of blood vessels make up an inch of your skin.

  • Detoxify and draw out toxins from the skin’s surface, which leaves your skin looking refreshed and rejuvenated.
  • You get brighter and clearer skin as a skin detox cleans out blemishes, blackheads, irritation, and pores.
  • It tightens and firms skin. As a result, your skin looks and feels younger.
  • It hydrates the skin.

An all-embracing skin detox will leave your skin looking glowing and gorgeous.

Detox with Tea

Toxins exist all around us- in processed foods, carbonated drinks, pollution and free radicals that we are exposed to daily. Doing an all-natural cleanse is great way to give your gut the love, attention and detox it deserves!

Detox teas may also have a laxative effect, speeding food through your digestive tract. This can give your abdomen a slimmer, flatter look. But detox teas don’t cause real or lasting loss of excess fat from the body. Instead, they can dehydrate you. So you need to make sure to drink lot of water and lower your alcohol intake.

How often should I drink detox tea?

The makers of Ecoteatox claim that it helps the body cleanse itself by boosting the performance of the liver and kidney. They recommend drinking three cups per day for up to 30 days, with a one-week pause between cycles.

If you want to get rid of an old scar, you need to understand what a scar is and what type you’re trying to get rid of.

A scar forms as part of the natural healing process following an injury. When the dermis — the second layer of skin — is damaged, your body forms collagen fibers to repair the damage, and that results in a scar.

There are different types of scars, each with defining characteristics.

Atrophic scars

Atrophic scars are characterized by the loss of tissue. They appear depressed, serrated, or flat against the upper layer of the skin. Often atrophic scars have darker skin pigmentation than other area of your skin. Examples of atrophic scars include acne scars and chickenpox scars.

Hypertrophic scars

Hypertrophic scars are characterized by excess tissue that forms over the skin as it heals. Unlike a keloid scar, it does not grow outside the injured area. Hypertrophic scars are commonly darker than other skin in the area.

Keloid Scars

Keloid scars are the result of aggressive healing and an overproduction of tissue. They are characterized by a raised, thick, puffy appearance. They are typically darker than the surrounding skin. Unlike a hypertrophic scar, keloid scars can grow beyond the injured area.

Contracture scars

Contracture scars result from large areas of skin being lost or damaged, typically from burns. They are characterized by tight, shiny skin that can restrict movement.

Acne breakouts can be frustrating, and they can also leave scars on the face and other areas of the body. Some people find that acne scars are an unwanted reminder of a painful and bothersome condition. However, acne scars do not have to be permanent, as some home remedies and medical treatments can help get rid of them.

Several medical treatments are available to help reduce acne scars. A dermatologist may recommend different procedures depending on a person’s skin type and the extent of the scarring.

  • Chemical peel
  • Laser Treatment
  • Microneedling
  • Microneedling + Glow Derma Foundation

Plasma Fibroblast is a non-surgical revolutionary skin tightening cosmetic treatment (or soft surgery method) for a perfect facial rejuvenation, using Plasma (the 4th state of matter) instead of a scalpel to shrink, tighten and reduce the volume of excess skin. It is important to note that the procedure does not alter or affect the body’s natural aging process but instead reduces the appearance of common age factors such as wrinkles. Because this is a natural process, there is no over-tightening that can often occur in medical procedures such as injections and surgery. Instead, fibroblast provides a natural more youthful appearance by giving a tightening-effect. 

Collagen and elastin, the compounds that give skin its youthful shape and appearance, reduce production as you age, leading to saggyloose skin.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is found in the bones, joints, and tendons.

It’s also what keeps the skin youthful by providing structure to the dermis, the thickest layer of the skin. As you get older, the body loses collagen naturally. By extension, this includes elastin, another protein responsible for keeping the skin firm and tight.

How much does fibroblast treatment cost?

Plasma fibroblast therapy costs usually depend on who’s performing the procedure and what areas of your skin are being targeted.

Eye: 

Upper Eyelid Lift $400

How long will results last?

Results are often seen almost immediately, but best results appear a few weeks post-procedure. Results will vary from person to person and many other factors and it is possible that multiple sessions may be required for desired results. It can be considered to receive this procedure every few years to reduce the appearance of any reoccurring signs of aging that appear over time. 

There are many lifestyle factors that can increase signs of aging such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure. Limiting or eliminating things such as these will increase the results of the procedure and decrease the common appearances of aging. 

Are There Side Effects?

Immediately after the Fibroblast procedure, you may notice that your skin is red and slightly swollen. This is normal and should subside in around three days. Though you may see a slight redness lingering for up to 14 days. 

While the procedure is underway, carbon crusts form on the skin. You should avoid the urge to touch these crusts post-procedure. You can expect them to last around a week. They’ll naturally lift off as new skin appears underneath the treated area. 

When you consider that you’re getting a skin tightening solution without the need for dangerous surgery, these side effects are much easier to swallow. 

Are The Results Permanent? How Many Treatments Are Needed?

Fibroblast is a cosmetic procedure to help reduce the obvious appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Because this is a cosmetic procedure for the purpose of improving the appearance, results are not permanent.

Fibroblast has shown great results in reducing the appearance of common age signs that can last a few years.
