Skin damage is an unfortunate consequence of ageing, city living, hectic lifestyles and pollution, with the fragile areas around the eyes being the most vulnerable. If you have wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness or other skin issues you would like to fix there are several options to choose from, the most obvious perhaps being invasive procedures such as surgery, chemical peels, and long series of laser treatments.

Let's take a look at the most popular lifestyle hacks around.Diet
It's common sense that in general your skin will look clearer and younger if you follow a nutritious and balanced diet, but for the eye area, and to reduce puffiness specifically, you need to cut out as much salt as possible.

It also involves some detective work at the market to identify the secret high sodium foods to avoid. You may be surprised after reading the ingredient lists of a few packets and cans.Food-Based Beauty Saves
