How To Brighten Tired-Looking Eyes

It can be easy to find yourself with tired-looking eyes. Life gets so busy that it can be difficult to find the time to really look after your eyes, and of course, lack of sleep is a real factor – if you’re not getting your eight hours a night, your eyes won’t thank you.

Fortunately, if your eyes are looking a little tired, it’s easy to reverse the trend and brighten them up a little. Here, we’ll take a look at why your eyes might be looking tired, the things you can try to brighten them up, and some of the best products we have for tired-looking eyes too. To find out all you need to know about how to brighten under your eyes, read on!

Why do my eyes look tired?

The area under your eyes can often show the visible signs of ageing before the rest of the face does, as the skin here tends to be thinner and more delicate. Being thinner, the skin can show blood vessels underneath the surface – this blue or purple colouring can make us look tired. 

Other causes include, of course, lack of sleep, as well as alcohol consumption and dehydration. Then there’s eye strain; staring at a computer all day can make your eyes look tired, as might even driving a car for a long time or reading in poor lighting. But how can we get our eyes to look brighter?

How to get brighter-looking eyes

If you’re after brighter-looking eyes, there are a few different things you can try. Some of them are easily done at home, while for others you might want to look at incorporating new products into your skincare routine. Here’s how to brighten under your eyes!

It could be as simple as using a cold compress, or even just splashing your face with cold water at the start of the day as part of your morning routine, if you wake up with eyes that are looking tired or puffy. It’s worth trying to get enough sleep too, though that might be easier said than done. It’s also ideal to avoid dry air, like air from hair dryers or air on a plane, so you might want to carry eye drops with you if you’re going somewhere that you expect to be dry.

Interestingly, some home remedies include putting green teabags onto your eyelids, as green tea has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, or slices of cucumber – something that you may be familiar with. Remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day, too, and ensure that if you’re sitting at a screen for work all day you take breaks on a regular basis.

Another option is to try hyaluronic acid for eyes in a targeted serum, like our new 2.5% [Hyaluronic Acid + Caffeine] serum, which is formulated to plump your skin while targeting the appearance of dark circles and eye wrinkles too. Our triple roller applicator offers a stimulating massage and delivers action instantly to refresh your eyes! You can use it daily as part of your regular skincare routine to help you get the brighter-looking eyes you’re after.

You could also try our new eye serum mask – each mask contains half a bottle of serum! The cooling mask gives full eye coverage and simultaneously hydrates skin while also reducing the look of eye bags, and it only needs to be used once a week. Simply apply the tissue mask to the eye skin area and the hyaluronic acid and caffeine enriched formula will get straight to work to give you brighter looking eyes.

Not only that, but remnants of makeup from the previous day risks leaving smudges around your eyes – it makes sense to remove all traces before starting the day. You can use our Revitalift Replumping Makeup Remover, which is also designed to help rehydrate and smooth skin.
