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.

3 More Tips to Battle Tired Eyes

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!

Hi bethenny! I watch your show everyday. Today was about under eye bags. I really really was hoping your could help me with mine. I'm only 25 years old but I've been suffering from them since I was in the 6th grade or younger. But that's when I started noticing my looks and wanting to wear makeup. I try concealers, primers, base, getting sleep, drinking water and exercising. But nothing works. I think it's hereditary so Mine aren't the average bags. I was hoping you could help me talk to the dermatologist dr. Day. I'm in need of desperate help. I'd like surgery but don't have enough money. My wedding day was horrible. I looked horrible. I HATE! Looking in the mirror. Half the time I don't even know what I look like when I leave the house because I can't look at myself and I also can't talk to people because I can't look them in the eye. Many times I've heard I'm rude because I don't look at people when they talk to me but they don't know that secretly I am way insecure with my face. I know I'm not pretty but I think if I removed these under eye lines it would Imorove my self esteem. I've even had people comment on them and I cry later. I also love your clothes too. Thank you for your time bethenny :)
