There is an age-old saying that eyes are the window to the soul - it's a common belief in cultures around the world that by looking into someone's eyes, you can begin to see their most profound truths. Through our eyes, we are able to see and experience the world around us - our eyes play crucial parts in our consciousness, and they are one of the main ways we express ourselves through body language. 

Imagine the last time you met eyes with someone you love - you could likely instantly read what they were thinking. Through the eyes, we can often tell what another person feels: happy, angry, reflective, and even in love. Our eyes allow us to share our emotions - with just a glance; we can often tell what others might think or feel. 


Our eyes are often the first thing that others notice about us, and they're one of the key ways we express ourselves to the outside world. According to a 2022 study, 69% of people said that eyes are the first thing they look at when meeting someone new. Unfortunately, our eyes are often the first thing to show signs of exhaustion when we've been burning the candle at both ends at work or had a little bit too much fun over the weekend. Luckily, there are some easy and effective natural ways to revitalize dull, tired eyes and restore them to sparkling, bright, beautiful orbs.


Why do my eyes look so tired?


You're not alone if you feel like your eyes have been looking dull, tired, and puffy lately. Tired eyes are a common problem – even more so in the age of technology when so many of us spend hours each day staring out our phones and computers.

  • Stress and anxiety 
  • Eyestrain

The best ways to bring the sparkle back to tired eyes 


If you've noticed that you've been looking tired and your eyes have been feeling heavy and puffy lately – don't worry! There are plenty of natural ways to improve their appearance. With a few simple changes to your routine and products like ourVisionary De-Puffing Eye Elixir, your eyes will return to their brightness in no time! 


Use a high-quality eye-roller for puffy eyes

How do you take the puffiness out of your eyes? Our eye roller full of La.BOTANICA's Visionary Depuffing Eye Elixir makes the best under-eye de puffer and works to improve the appearance of under-eye bags immediately.


This enchanting elixir harnesses the moisturizing power of high-quality botanical oils like Sea buckthorn oil, castor oil, avocado oil, and moringa oil to help moisturize the sensitive under-eye area.


Infused with calming chamomile flowers to reduce redness and gently brighten the eyes, it also boosts elasticity and reduces inflammation to help combat the signs of aging. The relaxing scent of Frankincense also helps to tighten the under area. Best of all, it serves triple duty as you can also use it to condition your lashes and eyebrows.  


Visionary Depuffing Eye Elixir is a cult favorite product. It comes in a soothing roller that gently massages the eye area as you apply it to help reduce inflammation and puffiness. It's the perfect multi-tasker for every day and a product you'll soon find that you can't live without. 

Catch up on sleep. 

Not getting enough sleep is one of the leading causes of dull, tired, and puffy eyes in the morning. According to the Sleep Foundation, it is recommended that adults get between 7 and 8 hours of sleep each night. During your sleep cycle, your eyes can rejuvenate, rest, and replenish themselves, but with sufficient sleep, they look more energized and energized.


If you've been losing sleep due to stress, late-night partying, or any other reason, try to get back on track with a healthy sleep cycle. When you wake up feeling refreshed, having given yourself plenty of rest, your entire body will feel healthier and look better. Remember to get your beauty sleep whenever possible!

Give yourself a depuffing massage


A quick eye massage can work wonders to revitalize the eye areas when they're looking and feeling tired. After applying your Visionary De-puffing Eye Elixir, you can perform the following massage to help drain the lymph nodes and reduce puffiness.

First, use a gentle tapping motion with clean hands. Tap all around the eyes in circles to help increase blood flow. Remember not to pull or tug at the skin! Continue to motion around your eyebrows and along the tops of your cheeks towards your nose.


Perform these circles several times, and then use your fingers to press the pressure points along your brow bone at the inner corner of your eyebrows. Next, press gently near your tear ducts at the bridge of your nose. Finally, give yourself a gentle temple massage. 


Anytime you're feeling fatigued, ensuring you're drinking enough water is a good idea. According to the Sleep Foundation, lack of sleep can directly lead to dehydration, which leaves the sensitive area around the eyes looking dry and crepey. Try to ensure that you're drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily, which experts recommend for healthy adults.


In addition to drinking enough water, choose moisturizing products for the eye area, especially when they feel tired. The gentle skin around the eyes can quickly become dehydrated, and when it does, the skin may appear crepey, flaky, and dry. 


Rich oils like buckthorn and avocado help to replenish essential skin hydration and improve elasticity around the eye area. You'll notice an instant improvement in the under-eye area as soon as you're hydrated. Keeping the skin hydrated will instantly improve sagging under the eyes, giving a more youthful and glowing look.
