The area surrounding our eyes is a delicate and sensitive body part. One night without proper sleep, I wake up feeling and looking like a panda. It’s a fact that some of us are naturally predisposed to develop dark circles under our eyes. If you are like me, you have also been looking for the perfect brightening eye cream, and most likely, you have yet to find it, which is why you are researching this topic. I never found the ideal cream, so I started my own organic, non-toxic skincare company based on the science of nature: Fields of Yarrow. In this article, I will showcase our best products for brighter, youthful eyes.

How did Fields of Yarrow start?

Fields of Yarrow was inspired by a combination of factors that have shaped my personal and professional journey. With one side of my family involved in the pharmaceutical industry and the other consisting of natural healers, I was exposed to both conventional and holistic approaches to healthcare.

Fields of Yarrow allows me to merge my love for nature, healing, and skincare. By harnessing the incredible properties of natural ingredients, we create botanical products that promote healthy skin and provide a holistic and natural approach to self-care. Our ingredients are all naturally grown and harvested in accordance with organic standards. Our products are free of synthetic dyes, fragrances, and preservatives, and all our ingredients are ethically sourced, plant-based, and organic.

Fields of Yarrow’s Eye Care Range

Fields of Yarrow’s values of sustainability and respect for our planet are imprinted in all our product lines. Ideas conceived with plants from the South of France and Bali have developed into toxic-free, very efficient skincare products. Our eye care range will include products infused with botanical extracts that offer multiple benefits. For example, the Hibiscus & Vitamin C Brightening Eye Cream is a unique blend of nature’s finest. The cream is formulated with a 5% potent Vitamin C and hibiscus extract, known for their skin-brightening and rejuvenating properties.

The importance of a regular lymphatic drainage

Being the founder of an organic skincare company, I get asked almost daily which skincare routine I recommend. While skincare products are undoubtedly helpful for maintaining healthy skin, it is essential to recognize that the facial lymphatic system also plays a significant role in the health of our skin. It helps to eliminate toxins and waste from our bodies, and when it becomes sluggish or congested, it can result in negative skin conditions such as puffiness in the eye area.

Tiger Bud

No. 5 Gua Sha

Handcrafted from Tiger’s Eye gemstone, the Gua Sha tool not only sculpts and lifts the face, but can also revitalize the skin to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and inflammation, while increasing the absorption of skincare products.

One effective way to stimulate the facial lymphatic system is through the use of a gua sha tool like our Tiger Bud Gua Sha and a suitable face oil like our Wild Rose Illuminating Face Oil. Gua sha is an ancient T.C.M. (Traditional Chinese Medicine) healing technique that involves gently scraping the Tiger Bud along the contours of the face, which helps to encourage lymphatic drainage. Handcrafted from Tiger’s Eye gemstone, the Gua Sha tool not only sculpts and lifts the face but can also revitalize the skin to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and inflammation while increasing the absorption of skincare products. This allows for maximum product effectiveness, leaving the skin nourished and revitalized.

Keep in mind that not all skincare products are adapted for the eye area. We recommend only using products specifically designed for the periorbital region to avoid any irritations.

Understanding the Importance of Eye Care

The skin around our eyes is delicate and thin, making it prone to showing signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles. Environmental factors, stress, and lack of sleep can worsen these signs. Therefore, properly caring for this sensitive area for graceful aging becomes necessary. A well-curated eye care regimen can help slow the aging process, maintain the skin’s youthful elasticity, and keep dark circles and puffiness at bay. Fields of Yarrow’s range of eye care products is designed precisely for this purpose.

Why do we need eye care?

What’s unique about the skin in our periorbital area (the area around our eyes) is that it’s thinner and more sensitive than the rest of our face. It is also subject to a lot of movement, from smiling to squinting, leading to wear and tear over time (as any mom like me can testify).

Periorbital puffiness can have many causes, but the most common conditions are:

  1. Lack of sleep: Not getting enough sleep can cause your skin to look pale and dull, allowing the dark tissues and blood vessels beneath your skin to show.
  2. Allergies: Eye puffiness can be a sign of allergies, which can cause inflammation and swelling.
  3. Fluid retention: Many factors can lead to fluid retention, including changes in weather, hormone levels, or eating salty foods.
  4. Heredity: Dark circles under the eyes can run in families.
  5. Lifestyle factors: Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and poor diet can also contribute to bags under the eyes and dark circles.

Since many of these factors are hard to regulate in our stressful day-to-day life, taking steps to help this sensitive area is a must in our daily skincare routine.

Here’s a handy list of all the Fields of Yarrow’s 100% clean, natural and tested products, featuring high concentration of all the aforementioned natural ingredients.

Any approach you have towards your skin should be holistic, meaning it should take into account the whole of you. A natural and specifically designed eye cream followed by a loving lymphatic drainage will not only eliminate the toxins of your body but also reduce the puffiness around your eyes bringing back years of glow to your face.
