How to rejuvenate tired eyes ~ 6 Natural anti aging tips for tired moms
When I was just two years old I had to have corrective eye surgery. One day my eyes just crossed. I had to wear thick bifocals that had a thick strap attached to them. I had really big eyes too so the glasses looked kinda funny.
Thankfully the corrective eye surgery was a success. My eyes became straight and I have had 20/20 vision ever since.
As a kid, I often got teased about my big eyes and I was a little self conscious about it.
Now as an adult, in spite of my eyes showing when I”m tired, sick or stressed, I have a deep appreciation and gratitude for my eyes. These eyes have overcome an obstacle and they allow me to view the world.
I’ve always been very conscious about anything I put on or around my eyes.
The skin around our eyes is delicate and should be treated with care. As we age the skin around our eyes gets thinner and looser becoming more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles in addition to puffiness and dark circles that are already part of mom life.
Our windows to the soul need to be given a little extra care and attention.
How to rejuvenate tired eyes.
In this post, I am going to share 6 Natural anti aging tips to rejuvenate tired eyes.
1.Re9 Anti Aging Corrective Eye Cream
The Re9 corrective eye cream made by Arbonne is a game changer and one of my favorite products. It provides deep hydration and locks in moisture. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and diminishes the appearance of puffiness and dark circles.
The key ingredients and benefits are :
Sustainable Orange Stem Cells – help to improve the appearance of skin radiance, elasticity, firmness and texture while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles by conditioning the skin.
Stabilized Vitamin C – boosts and maintains moisture by supporting collagen, resulting in an improved appearance of fine lines while restoring a natural, youthful glow.
Brown Algae Extract – Helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by moisturizing the skin’s outer layer.
Peptides – enhance the appearance of skin smoothness, diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve the appearance of skin tone, firmness, and suppleness by adding moisture.
Caffeine – reduces the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, helping to restore the appearance of youthful radiance through hydration.
Olive Squalane – contains omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, replenishes the skin’s natural lipid barrier to support moisturization for soft, smooth, healthy looking skin.
Niacinamide – a form of vitamin B3, helps to support the skin’s moisture barrier with hydration to enhance the appearance of brightness and even tone.
One of the many things I love about Arbonne is their clean ingredient policy. The U.S. government doesn’t review the safety of products before they hit the market. Which means that cosmetic companies are allowed to use almost any ingredient they wish in their products. As to expand shelf life and get more bang for their buck, companies are using all sorts of toxic ingredients that we don’t want anywhere near our skin, especially near our sensitive eyes.
Their philosophy is pure, safe and beneficial which aligns with my beliefs in what cosmetic and ALL personal care products should be.

2. Cucumber Slices
“Every woman over the age of 25 should have a cucumber in the house”. Remember the early 90’s flick, Don’t tell mom the babysitter’s dead? Sue Ellen’s boss Rose said this when they were eating Chinese food one late night at work.
As a kid I never knew what that meant, but now as I’m older and wiser I get it. She meant for her eyes. Right?
Either way cucumbers are good to have in the house for many reasons. One being that they are great for soothing puffy, tired eyes. Cucumbers contain antioxidants that are proven to help reduce puffiness, stimulate antioxidant activity and give eyes a nice refresh. The added bonus is cucumbers are sans chemicals.
So go ahead and chop up some cucumber slices, put some of your favorite tunes on, relax and let the cucumbers work their magic.
3. Green Tea
Tea bags are a safe, natural remedy to nurture tired eyes. The caffeine in the tea bags stimulates circulation and soothes and tightens the skin under the eyes.
Pour boiling water in a mug over two tea bags. Let it steep for 15 minutes then remove and let the tea bags cool. Place on eyes for 15-30 minutes.
In addition to nurturing your windows to the soul, Green Tea is a Superfood that can boost your immune system. Click here to read about 12 Superfoods that you should include in your diet.
4. Aloe Vera Gel
We know aloe vera as a first aide remedy. In particular, aloe is great for treating burns. It contains anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti inflammatory as well as many other healing properties.
It also contains essential vitamins and minerals including antioxidants and vitamin E, making it a great remedy for under eye care. It provides moisture helping to soothe tired eyes, reduce puffiness and even prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
Get yourself some quality aloe gel and gently pat it under your eyes in small, light circles.

The Real Conceal Liquid Concealer is a lightweight, full coverage concealer that conceals dark circles, imperfections, fine lines and wrinkles. It also hydrates and brightens.
