3 More Tips to Battle Tired Eyes
Dr. Doris Day talked about the effects of injectables like Botox, Voluma, Juvederm and others on today's show. If those aren't for you, she shares three more ways to battle tired eyes without injectables.
No pill, cream or product will replace getting the right amount of sleep, Dr. Day says. Give yourself permission to nap!
The first sign you're dehydrated is that you feel tired. The second sign is that your skin starts to sag as the water you do have goes to your more "essential" organs (heart, brain, etc.), Dr. Day says. The standard 8 glasses of 8 ounces of water is still a good measure, unless you're really active. Dr. Day says to make sure you eat your water too, if you're eating vegetables with high water content, you're getting more water that way.
Cucumber Honey Eye Brew
Use this to take a "power nap" during the day, as often as you can, Dr. Day says. It's fine to use this up to three times a day, and the brew will last for at least a week in the fridge because of the honey.
Brew a strong pot of white tea (it can be loose-leaf tea or tea bags, whatever you have). Then, add 2 tablespoons of honey. Add round cucumber slices. Let it cool to room temperature. Put two cucumber slices over your eyes and take deep breaths. Leave on for a few minutes. Rinse and moisturize and you're good to go!
