We must keep in mind that the skin around your eye area is the most fragile and thinnest in the entire body, and for this reason, it must be treated with the utmost care.
Our Herbal Eye Gel is, and has been, the favorite treatment for a selection of problems, as it contains butcher's broom, centella, camomile, cornflower, green tea, horsetail, lady's mantle, ivy, organic vegetable protein from germinated wheat seeds and rosehip.
It is hypo-allergenic, pH balanced, made from the purest and best quality ingredients and it is effective in helping to re-vitalize the connective tissue in this area and helps the production of new elastin and collagen for a smooth, un-marked and youthful looking skin.
Apart from our hyper effective gel, you may also want to look at some other factors that may have an influence.
People suffering from a thyroid problem (also referred to as a goiter) normally have very protruding eyes - if you have any qualms about your thyroid not functioning effectively, or if you have any symptoms of an over - or under active thyroid please check the amount of iodine you consume, and consult your doctor immediately.
As we age, the fragile skin around our eye start to lose its elasticity, and the lymphatic drainage system, which helps to keep the area voided of excess fluids, loses it proper functioning. Our Herbal Eye Gel is especially formulated to assist with this lymphatic drainage and to remove excess fluid from the area.
Nutrition can also play a part and although our product will assist in re-vitalizing the collagen and elastin in the skin around the eyes, you do need vitamin C in your body in order for collagen to be formed.
In the absence of vitamin C, the body cannot produce collagen. The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of 60 mg of vitamin C per day it will not achieve much, nor will it assist in enhancing and furthering the quality of your skin this amount is only enough to prevent beriberi (scurvy).
To assist in collagen formation and re-vitalizing your fragile skin around the eyes - please consider taking an extra vitamin C (ascorbic acid) supplement, after checking with your medical practitioner.
When taking a vitamin C supplement, look at one that contains bioflavonoids (vitamin P) as well, as these bioflavonoids boosts the efficacy with which the vitamin will perform its work.
Plain tiredness will add to the problem. Check the amount of hours you sleep and also take note of the amount of hours you work in front of a computer terminal or watch television both these activities can cause strain.
Eye drops will relieve irritation and a bloodshot look, but will do little to soothe tired eyes.
Some people believe in using sliced figs or thin slices of cucumber to freshen and relieve tiredness, but be careful many people have allergic reactions to both figs and cucumbers when used on the skin.

Eye exercises may also be of great benefit to the general health of your eyes, but first check with your optometrist or eye specialist before starting such a program.
Sit, relax and while breathing normally but deeply, look at a spot between your eyes, above the bridge of your nose. Keep looking at this spot for a count of five, and then relax the eyes. Next look at the tip of your nose, also to the count of five and then relax.
After doing these two exercises try the following:
These exercises must be done slowly and with concentration, but before starting them, please check with your health practitioner if they would be suitable for you.
Fluid retention can be a major cause of this problem, and here you will have to consider your general health and any other underlying medical conditions.
Diuretic pills (to remove excess water from your body) can be helpful, but some people do have unwanted side effects from them.
Vitamin C is a natural diuretic and an increase in this vitamin will not only assist in removing excess water from your body, but will also assist with collagen formation as discussed above.
If you are ingesting a lot of salt, either directly or indirectly, it could add to your problem with water retention. Try and cut down on eating raw salt, and check food labels as well, as processed food can contain large amounts of salt check for "sodium" on the label.
Although orthodox medicine does not always believe in the benefits of going on a detoxifying diet, the effect of such a cleansing diet not only boosts your general health, but also help sort out the question of under eye dark circles. The reason for this is that some natural healers ascribe this problem to a toxic build-up in your system.
You might not smoke yourself, but even secondary smoke can aggravate this problem and most people will have a violent reaction to smoke, such as the eyes turning bloodshot or watery, while others will manifest their allergy in swelling.
If smokers surround you, try and introduce as much fresh air as possible, and if you yourself smoke, take extra vitamin C, as smoking destroy a large amount of this vitamin, every time you light up.
It seems that allergies are becoming more and more prevalent, which may be due to our un-healthy, stressed filled lives, surrounded by chemicals additives and preservatives, as well as environmental pollutants contributing to the increase of allergies.
With so many stressors or triggers around, the body simply cannot cope with the large amount of allergens and gives up the fight, with the resultant allergic conditions.
But be this as it may your eye problem may be indicative of some allergen that you are either surrounded by, or are ingesting. You may not have a major medical reaction to an allergen, such as wheezing, coughing, sneezing or a closed chest - you could simple have a slightly stuffy nose most of the times.
Tests can be done to determine environmental or food allergies with a simple skin patch test, a blood test or more alternative types of testing, such as a muscle resistant test or a heart pulse test.
If you have any of these tests done, and they come up positive for any item that you could avoid as far as possible, go the extra mile and try to cut the allergen out of your sphere of living be that either environmental or type of foodstuff.
Environmental allergies are sometimes difficult to fight if you suffer from a dust mite allergy for instance, you will have to ensure that your house is virtually dust proof, and that all drapes, mattresses, carpets and all other soft furnishings are treated with a mite and dust controlling solution, and that air conditioning filters are kept spotlessly clean.
If you are allergic to seasonal items, such as pollen, you could ask your medical practitioner for assistance during that time, with an allergy-fighting drug of some sort but be careful of medication containing cortisone as this ingredient may cause more problems than what it solves.
And once again, look at vitamin C to assist in fighting allergies this humble little food supplement can help alleviate the symptoms to a great degree. And remember to look for the added bioflavonoids.
When selecting cosmetics or skin care products be extra careful to choose a range that will not cause an allergic reaction, and formulated with this in mind - as our Herbal Eye Gel has been.
If you apply facial cream incorrectly, it may cause your eyes to be puffy and swollen especially in the morning. Make sure the creams are not applied to the center corner (near your nose) of your eyes, as the cream could impact and obstruct a tear duct, which will cause swelling of the eye.
Our herbal eye gel will not cause such a reaction.
If you find that your eyes are more swollen in the morning, have a look at maybe increasing the height of your pillows, by adding another cushion when going to bed. The raising of your head could assist with draining excess fluids.
Facial massage can be most beneficial, but it must be done correctly.
First clean your face well and then use a very light textured oil (like our almond oil) or cream as massage medium, to prevent stretching or stressing the skin.
You might want to look at almond oil, since it has great emollient properties, without being heavy and greasy. Another oil that you may want to consider is jojoba oil.
You can also massage with plain aqueous cream, since it is very economical and is also great to work with.
When doing facial massage, please keep your touch SOFT and do not stretch the skin it must be done gently. If you have long hair, tie it away from your face before doing any facial massage to prevent the oil or cream getting into your hair.
When you are finished doing the massage, remove the oil from your eyes by gently washing the area with a very gentle cleanser, or remove the excess oil by blotting it away with a tissue.
