Easy Treatment for Your Most Common Beauty Concerns

Improving your looks is a matter of taking some time to dedicate to a few simple lifestyle changes that will have big results. When discussing appearance, women typically have the same complaints, bags under their eyes, an uneven complexion and a less than bright smile. Fortunately, there is plenty that you can do to treat these beauty busters, and see real results fast.

The most effective puffy eye treatment is getting to the root of what is causing your puffy eyes and eliminating it. Allergies, alcohol and sodium can all cause bags under your eyes. You may also develop puffy eyes as a result of sleeping on your stomach, so fluid accumulates around the thin eye area overnight.

Treat existing puffiness by applying a cold, damp washcloth to the eyes for a few minutes before applying your makeup. Eye creams containing vitamin E or aloe can also reduce puffiness. Finally, consider sleeping in an eye mask, the gentle pressure it applies helps prevent the buildup of fluid around the eyes.



An uneven complexion is the result of slower cell turnover, which is a normal side effect of aging, combined with years of sun exposure. Frequent exfoliation will provide noticeable results quickly. You can use manual exfoliation, such as a facial brush, or chemical exfoliation, using a product containing retinol. Dark spots are the result of sun exposure, and can be lightened with products made specifically for this purpose. Results vary, but if you don’t see noticeable results after several months of regular use, you may want to visit a dermatologist for prescription strength options.

A less than gleaming white smile can give away your age. Cigarettes, coffee, tea, soda and red wine all discolor your teeth. Fortunately, whitening options have never been more available. Your dentist probably has a range of products to use, and if not, he can refer you to a cosmetic dentist who does. You can also take matters into your own hands with over the counter whitening strips, gels, toothpastes and mouthwashes.

Freshening up your look has never been easier or more affordable. With the many options available, ranging from lifestyle changes to help from healthcare professionals, there is no reason you shouldn’t feel confident every time you walk out the door.
