Hi - I posted a note a few weeks ago as I had developed a strange puffy patch under my eye. I have since put this down to a reaction to a concealer I used as it happened again after applying it.

My problem now is that the skin where the reaction took place, doesn't seem to be recovering. I know that my skin is slightly sun damaged by being silly when I was younger, but in the area where the puffiness was, the skin is now loose. I feel REALLY self conscious about it and I'm really worried that it will not firm up again, get worse and I will end up looking like Andrew Lloyd Webber on one side!! Jokes aside though, I am very worried and it's getting me down quite abit. Does any one have any suggestions to assist the recovery of the skin in that area?

thanks for reading
xx

I would go into the pharmist if I were you and ask him for a healing product and get it cleared first and then worry about firming that area up as there are lots of good firming eye creams on the market I got a sample of sculpt 10 new firming eye cream by Christain Dior and its very good and can be used all around the eyes

I had a bad reaction to some eye cream applied when I had a facial. My eyes really swelled up, and when the swelling went down, the skin looked really loose and baggy. I was really worried (made me look about 10 years older), but I just used vaseline around my eyes for at least a week, and then went back to my normal eyecream. They did get back to normal though, it took a couple of weeks, so don't worry too much, it shouldn't be permanent.

Phew! I hope that's the same for me!! I've been really grumpy and snappy today because of it! It's silly really isn't it! I must be so vain!! It is horrid when you feel bad about something on your face though.

Thanks again x

Hi there

Try not to worry, these things can really get you down! But I'm sure it'll get better - rest and sleep will help. As far as something that you could put on the area is concerned, I wonder about hyaluronic acid? It has a really plumping effect, I find, and isn't likely to irritate the skin (?). Others who are more knowledgeable than me might have a view on this. Decleor has an eye serum containing HA, and it's lovely and soothing, as well as plumping. Hope this helps, and take care.

Hi Weaholt, you're not vain, I think most of us get paranoid about our eyes, because they are what people look at when speaking to us and the most noticed part of our face. I think you can always tell age by the eyes, no matter how wrinkle-free the face and neck is, the eyes always give it away, even if it's just the expression of experience in them. Good luck with your problem, just remember to be extra gentle with the eye area and use very gentle products for a little while till the irritation has gone.
