Panda eyes ? Eeeks! 
Kungfu Panda is cute..not panda eyes on us though...

Dark circle under the eyes (fondly referred to as "Panda eyes"), eye bags and puffiness are your beauty or health worries? 

Puffy eyes, eye bags and dark circles under the eyes occur for many reasons:

What Causes Puffy Eyes, Eye Bags and Dark Circles Under the Eyes? 

1. Fluid retention from over-consumption of salt
2.  Allergies that can cause inflammation and swelling
3. Sinus 
4. Dehydration
5. Fatigue and lack of sleep
6. Stress
7. Crying
8. Aging

Edema is ordinary swelling around the eyes meaning that you have an excessive accumulation of fluids in the surrounding skin tissue. As the skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin in the body, swelling and discoloration can be very apparent.
Why does fluid accumulate to form puffy eyes?
It is a process in aging when fatty tissues that ordinarily protect the eye inside the bony eye socket begins to push forward and fill in spaces under the eye.
This happens due to the thinning of the membrane or "septum" that ordinarily holds back fat in both the upper and lower eyelids. When this happens,  the fat pushes forward causing bulges under the eye.

You need regular pampering eye treatment at the Spa once or twice a month.

Pampering Eye Treament @Spa with Massage at CELEBRITY BEAUTE

I received a special eye treatment at Celebrity Beaute by their experienced Beautician, Yuki. She pampered me with these:

- Organic Arise Eyecare imported from Switzerland (so i know that my skin receives excellent skincare in terms of product safety and quality)

Arise Alpine Organic skincare are imported from Switzerland and are the following: 

artificial colourings-free
Cruelty-free, no animal testing

Natural and organic ingredients are certified by
(ECOCERT Greenlife according to ECOCERT

All products are also associated with COSMEBIO

- Massage eye area to activate lymphatic draining 
- Using Eye Compulift Machine to stimulate drainage around the eye area to rid it of its puffiness, eye bags and panda eyes.

- applying cool mask over the eye, to relax the eye area
- great and cosy ambience at Celebrity Beaute

I simply feel pampered like a Princess! The experience is simply worth is so relaxing!

And on top of that, what i love most about Celebrity Beaute is that they teach me how to replicate the eyecare routine so i can do it at home with the same organic products daily.

I replicate my eyecare daily by using what they used -  Organic Arise Eye Contour treatment as shown below.

And they say "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". I would say it is "Beholder's Beautiful Eyes"!  

Get rid of our tired eyes', lack lustre look and add a twinkle by caring for our eyes and dont forget to do the EYE Exercises - Blinkings!

Blinking is a form of exercise for  puffy eyes! 

Eyes are puffier and lids look "swollen" in the morning when we wake up because while we sleep, we dont blink. Once we start blinking after waking up, some of the puffiness will disappear within the hour.
Notice how you can get swollen legs on plane rides of long hours where you dont move your legs? Some of these swellings goes away as soon as you start walking,  as muscles in the legs begin "milking" the trapped fluids (edema), which are released back into circulation. Similar to blinking for swollen eyelids - it rids eyes of some of its puffiness.

Remedies for Puffy Eyes, Eye Bags and Dark Circles Under the Eyes

  • Get adequate sleep and rest (sleep 7- 8 hours nigtly and Power nap daily of 15 minutes or 1 hour per nap a day. This is to capitalise on your REM sleep pattern and wake u up fresh)
  • Hydrate adequately  to prevent dehydration
  • Reduce excessive salt in your diet
  • Eat potassium-rich foods, banana, oranges, potatoes, to eliminate excess fluids in your body
  • Applying iced compresses  through a towel when your lids are swollen once every 2 hours. Do not put ice directly onto skin as it can cause frostbite
  • Use eyedrops from your pharmacist for irritation caused by allergies, if appropriate
  • Apply cucumber slices or chilled tea bags over closed eyes
  • Splash cold water over your face and eyes
  • Stop using creams and other skin products that cause any allergic reactions 
  • Use specially formulated and organic eye product for your eye area. Organic products are biochemical-free, fragrance-free, additive-free,coloring-free, paraben-free

Real reasons why you must STRETCH?  When you stretch, your muscle lengthens. Muscle lengthening provides greater range of motion ( ROM), which is important to  individuals who have decreased ROM due to injury, a sedentary lifestyle or aging. Increased flexibility will also decrease our chances of injury and helps to enhance sports performance. A well-stretched muscle helps you in the process of recovery after exercise, ridding you of excessive muscle soreness. It also decreases your risk of injury as your muscle and surrounding areas of the muscles become supple and flexible.  Perform Full Body 12 stretches at least 2 times per day, breathing gently throughout.  Do not hold your breath while stretching.  The 12 Stretches is part of the scientific research  by Dr Dee Dee, as covered in this media coverage MORE Benefits of Stretching   - increases  flexibility ,  - for rehabilitation , - increases circulation - blood flow to the muscle increases after a lon
