Pesky Little Under Eye Bumps?
Today i’m sharing something near and dear to my heart!
Nothing makes applying make-up easier than having a smooth base to work with.
Aka trying to look fresh after a horrific night of sleep is no smooth sailing, am I right? -_-‘
For the longest time I had these annoying teenie little bumps under my eyes that made my concealer all artificial and heavy looking because it just couldn’t smooth over them!
At one point I set out to learn why those little buggers appeared “randomly” and succeeded!
Now I know how to dispel them. Ha!
What do they look like?
So what are they?
There’s different options like Milia, allergies ( ret A in your eye cream can be a problem ), or Syringomas, if you want to be sure ask a dermatologist.
But for me, they were simply my oil glands!
When the skin under my eye gets irritated, tired or dry they pop up!
Often after MUD class, I will get me some of those bastards due to continuous poking with brushes.
How to get rid of them
Moisturize & pamper that area but let it breathe!
If you're already using an eye cream try switching to an either heavier or lighter formula.
For me moisturizing eye pads in combination with my thick BWC vitamin C cream take care of them every single time so mine need a little extra.
Drinking more water ( I know, I know.. I had to.. ) can also help.
Don’t try popping the little things, they’re literally subdermal. >_<'
That’s how easy it was for me, and I had them for years!
If it is Milia, you can try an exfoliant designed specifically for the undereye area!
Hello smooth skin!!
