There is something so fascinating about our eyes. They convey how we feel, how we think and dive deep into our state of mind.  As William Shakespeare famously said, the eyes are the window to the soul! However, it is easy to suffer from aesthetic conditions around our eyes and especially our lower eyelid lines. So, this month’s focus will be all about how to make our eyes beautiful and how to get clear bright eyes through multiple tips, including Botox around the eyes. We will be exploring some of the causes of puffy eyes and dark circles and how we can find simple solutions to take care of these. We will also travel to Dubai to find some inspiration on eyebrows and how to have a killer look! And finally, stay tuned for tips on skin regimen to get the beautiful eyes that you deserve!

WHY IS THE SKIN AROUND YOUR EYES SO FRAGILE?

One of the main beauty tips for anti-ageing lies in the preservation of the periorbital region. That is the most sensitive skin around your eyes that will show signs of ageing quicker than other areas. It is 1.5 millimeters thinner than the average thickness of the rest of your facial skin, making it more vulnerable to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This is usually assisted by the fact that we have fewer oil glands in the periorbital region that the rest of our face, creating a tired look and a thin fragile skin. It is not a hopeless case, however, and we can prevent and remedy aesthetic eye issues. By understanding the problems, we can find solutions to cater for every particular case. Solutions range from dermal fillers, mesotherapy, Botox to prevent crow’s feet, and even the best sunscreen to protect your face! So don’t be demotivated, we are in this together!

PRESERVATION OF THE PERIORBITAL REGION STARTS WITH AN EFFICIENT SKIN REGIMEN

What are you doing to protect your skin around your eyes? Skin protection is at the core of my anti-ageing strategy. A good SPF and antioxidant is a must for DNA repair, through a combination of a retinoid and AHA (alpha hydroxyl acids). These two substances are the Holy Grail ingredients to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

What is mesotherapy and how can it remedy dark circles under your eyes?

First, it is important to understand why we have dark circles under the eyes. This can be due to various reasons, such as; a bad diet, smoking, allergic reactions, irregular sleep cycle or even genetic predisposition. Dark circles usually don’t reflect internal organ problems, but ligaments that hold the fatty tissue under our eyes start to show, when fat tissue and bone in this area disappear progressively.  The appearance of bags and dark circles under our eyes can also be due to a bad circulation of the periorbital region, which can result in fluid retention and under eye circles.

SUFFER FROM DARK CIRCLES OR PUFFY EYES? CONSIDER DERMAL FILLERS!

We’ve looked at the advantages of mesotherapy in correcting moderate dark circles, but what if the problem is deeper than mere pigmentation of the skin? Hollowness under the eyes can occur as we age, where blood vessels are visible when stretching the skin. The skin becomes prominent to enlarged capillaries, which is the result of reduced function of fibroblast, free radicals and UV sun radiation.

Botox around the eyes has become an effective solution for softening wrinkles on the crow’s feet area, but it is a delicate area that needs to be approached carefully as not all patients are eligible for it.

The best time to use Botox around our eyes to solve crow’s feet is when wrinkles are still very thin, so the process can be as efficient as possible.

Injection in the crow feet area needs to be done carefully, to avoid touching other muscles of the face which can sometimes cause sagging cheeks. Also, caution needs to be taken to make sure there is no change in the shape of the eyes after injection has been done.

When wrinkles are more pronounced, I use a combination of Botox and derma fillers. I never inject Botox for the crow’s feet area without addressing the forehead too. My 3 Botox areas focus on including the other muscles, which creates a better end result in synergy with a brow lift effect.

BEST SUNSCREEN FOR YOUR FACE SKIN AND AROUND YOUR EYES

With so many sunscreen options out in the market, it is easy to be confused and bewildered by the amount of choice we have! However, we don’t necessarily always chose the best option for our skin, which is why my tips can help you find the best sunscreen! It is important to apply sunscreen in two ways; by loading the skin with antioxidants first, and then applying an effective sunscreen with SPF30 and natural melanin.

SHAPING & ACHIEVING AN EYEBROW LIFT WITH BOTOX

Have you ever considered a brow lift with Botox? Nowadays, having the perfect shaped eye brows has been an essential must for women. It is hard however to achieve that balance naturally, which is why I recommend a Botox treatment!

There are muscles that depress the brow, and muscles that lift the brow. By using Botox, we can paralyze the muscles that depress the brow and manage to give it a slight elevation. Each individual requires different assessment to make sure the lift complements the rest of their face, which I will carefully assess during a facial consultation.

The consultation is required to conduct a detailed understanding of what the patient needs. Once this is done, I will carefully apply Botox in the muscles that depress the brow, which causes it to relax and lift its position. It is a good non-surgical brow lift option, however, there are limits on how much the brow can be lifted.

I can shape your brows in different ways too, depending on whether you want a raised arched brow, a raised horizontal brow or even raising the tail of the brow. We can even consider adding fillers alongside Botox, as they can provide an excellent end result.

So why not book today an appointment with Dr. Fern to find out what is suitable for you?

TIPS TO PREVENT & GET RID OF SUNKEN EYES

As we know, sunken eyes are a very common condition that affects us on our ageing process. The causes range from stress, dehydration, poor diet and lack of sleep, among other things. I will therefore give home remedy tips to help us make our eyes beautiful and get clear bright eyes.

However, sunken eyes are not always due to tiredness or unhealthiness. They also appear on young and healthy individuals. Some home remedies are effective in getting rid of sunken eyes, starting first with the right amount of sleep! It can be tempting to stay up on our phones and get carried away with social media and late night messaging. But these habits stop us from effective sleep time and are best to be done during the day.

Some home remedies reduce under-eye darkness and can complement sunken eyes treatment. Potato and cucumber slices can be used to cover your eyes for a few minutes daily. Also, using cold or warm teabags on our eyes for a few minutes help blood circulation around the eyes. They effectively help reduce dark circles.

Also, decreasing our alcohol consumption in the evening as well as drinking a lot of water during the day is vital. Complementing that with a healthy diet with plenty of greens and leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli will also keep your skin and eyes in good health!

TIPS FOR HEALTHY BEAUTIFUL EYES

One of the most important tips on how to make our eyes beautiful lies in the effective care of our eyes, to stop problems such as infections. This is why I have assembled the top 6 health tips on our road to achieving beautiful eyes:

  1. Every three months, we should throw away our eye make-up. Especially in creamy or liquid eye make-up, bacteria grows easily and can give you infections.
  2.  If you do experience an eye infection, you should immediately throw away all your eye make-up.
  3. You should never share you eye make-up as you can contract infections from other
  4.  When you sample make-up in stores, make sure you only use sanitized or fresh samples. You want to avoid samples that may be contaminate by other users
  5. If you are prone to allergies, it is a good idea to add make up to your collection once at a time. This will allow you to determine which one is causing any allergic reactions that you might develop. Doctors can also help you more once they know what ingredients you are allergic to
  6.  And lastly, make sure you avoid untested products that are not from a reputable brand. Natural ingredients are usually the best!

Follow these tips and get the beautiful eyes that you deserve, and call today to find out more about which facial treatments in south west London will suit your needs the best with Dr Fern!

REAL BEAUTY COMES FROM THE INSIDE OUT

It is nice to take care of our skin, getting the last tips for a perfect make up but the most attractive person, sometime are not the most beautiful one !

They have this “ je ne sais quoi “ , an inner beauty and appear attractive in unique ways. Not by what they’re doing to take care of their appearance but by the radiant energy they give out.When beauty comes as much from within as without, it in turn magnifies their outer beauty.

let’s get inspired with some poems and take care of our soul !

Have you heard about Haikus ? I’m passionate about it !

Haiku is a form of poetry, first made popular in Japan, which has become appreciated

around the world. In Japan these poems are valued for their simplicity, openness, depth and lightness.

with only 3 sentences, haikus are incredibly modern. They embrace  perfectly our modernity with a  fast and short communication style while on the same time it invites us practicing to pause in the moment and cultivate a sense of awareness, compassion and peace.

Haikus are an instant photography of a moment or an emotion.

Let’s celebrate summer with an Haiku from Marvin Brato Sr and an haiku from my personal creation:

REAL BEAUTY COMES FROM THE INSIDE OUT

“I see my image, 

reflexion in the mirror…

Event with my eyes closed !”

Marvin Brato Sr

REAL BEAUTY COMES FROM THE INSIDE OUT

“Nos regards se croisent

Rien n’est dit

Tout est dit”

WHAT SKINCARE REGIME SHOULD I HAVE TO ENHANCE MY SKIN TONE?

A regular skin regimen is the first step towards maintaining a healthy skin tone and prevent wrinkles. Now, what is the correct skincare regime? Do I have to spend a lot of money to get a cream that works? Which one is the best? Here is my skin care advice:

Exfoliate your skin
The correct skin care should include exfoliation once a week and use of serum on an everyday basis. The most expensive creams are not always the best creams. The molecules in most of the creams that are on the market are too big to pass the skin barrier.

Use products that will penetrate the skin layer
I like and highly recommend the Agera range product. AGERA® Rx is the first skin care range in the world to use tiny bio emulsion particles to encapsulate its powerful anti-ageing ingredients and deliver them deep within the skin (see diagrams). These minuscule particles penetrate the skin’s outer layer to ensure minimum irritation and maximum results.
