Q. Hi Alison, I am 24 and recently noticed I have large puffy bags under my eyes. I'm a newly qualified nurse so do a lot of shift work so my sleeping pattern is not the best. My main problem is that I watch all the skincare shows – Elemis, Gatineau, Decleor – but as they are all promoting their own products they all sound so good and I'm confused as to what would suit me best.
These products are expensive for me so when I buy one for my problem area I want to know it's the most suitable. Can you advise me what you would consider the best range of skincare treatment out there or perhaps the best product for my problem? Many thanks, Louise.
A. If you're looking for something speedy and economical, yet effective, I'd recommend SBC Collagen Gel and SBC Arnica Gel. The Arnica gel can be used as an eye cream to help de-puff your eyes (avoid using any oil around the eye area).
The Collagen gel is fantastic as a moisturiser and helps to plump up your skin. Apply a thick mask of it to your face before you go to bed and it will sink in to leave you with beautifully moisturised skin.
Both of these products will cover your moisturising and anti-ageing concerns, will help de-puff your eyes and are great value too.
