Noticing fine lines, wrinkles, or other aging issues? Embracing one’s age is important, but let’s face it many of us want to stay looking youthful. However, be careful when trying new anti-aging products. Certain products can actually do more harm than good.
One of the signs of aging is darkening of the under eye area or puffy under eyes. Eye creams are very popular, but can be expensive and not that great for you.
In a recent segment on the Dr. Oz show they featured eye creams, and the lack of results they provide. Apparently the ingredients used in eye creams is almost identical to the ingredients used in moisturizers. Eye creams can cost up to $60, while they provide very little to no results. In addition, eye creams can actually age your face at a faster rate. How is that possible? There are chemicals used to preserve eye creams that can create increased inflammation of the eye area.

Instead of spending a ton on harmful eye creams, you can create your own natural (more effective) eye cream at home with two simple ingredients. Apparently Greek yogurt is more than just a tasty treat. The ingredients in plain Greek yogurt and parsley can decrease inflammation and get rid of those pesky dark baggy under eyes.
To create this at home eye cream add some chopped parsley to a few table spoons of plain Greek yogurt. And that’s it! Apply the yogurt to the area, and leave until dry. You can then use a warm dampened towel to remove the yogurt.
If swelling or eye bags are your issue cold tea bags and ice will work as well. Often times eye bags are caused by allergies. If you have allergies an antihistamine will help as well.
