While I consider myself fortunate to have few giant skin issues at the moment, my seasonal nightmare comes when allergies arrive and turn up giant bags under my eyes. Sticking my face into a bowl of ice water and ice cubes (seen in the ever-memorable film that haunts me still, Mommy Dearest) helps a small bit as it shocks my system awake. Cucumber slices don’t do a whole lot for me. Basically I just grin and bear it until the bags go away… but no longer!!! Celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore brings us her on-set insider secret to deflating the puffy eyes without scary chemicals!
From Chantal: ” On set, all of my clients get treated to various pre-makeup skin treatments depending on the circumstances. The under eye area always gets special care. The first thing clients usually say when they sit down is “Can you do anything about these bags?” My answer is always yes. Puffy eyes are no match for these truly genius, cooling, transdermal gel patches. In ten minutes they take down puffiness, firm, soothe, refresh and brighten the delicate under eye area. Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels are free of parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, and dyes. Learn more about them here. ”
