Jill’s Secrets – The Eyes have it!


I hate my puffy eyes! Honestly, I look like I have been crying constantly. I feel like a bullfrog and every morning when I wake up I look at myself and feel I’m ageing very quickly. Is there anything I can do? Gilly, Oxshott


Firstly I would check the possibility of being allergic to a few things, namely dust mites, feather pillows and too-rich eye creams. The skin around the eyes is very thin, and during the course of the day tends to accumulate fluid. As the evening approaches, the muscles tire and the skin appears to sag, compounding the problems even more.

My recommendation is to combine Stay Young non-surgical eye lift and EndyMed PRO 3Deep iFine radio frequency skin tightening. Stay Young is ideal for getting rid of accumulated fluid because of the lymph drainage programme it offers, and it also helps to strengthen and tighten the underlying muscle structure and lifts the eyebrows.

EndyMed PRO 3Deep iFine uses a specific hand piece for the eye area and utilises radio frequency to tighten the skin – it is a very comfortable treatment with impressive results and no down time. We can also use Mesotherapy, which combines specific vitamins to reduce dark circles and puffiness around the eyes due to fluid build up caused by poor drainage, fragile capillaries and loss of elasticity.

For home use I would invest in a lightweight eye cream and the Guinot eye mask. Use the Guinot eye mask two to three times a week – it is a marvellous product for reducing puffiness around the eyes.
