The other day while I was on a shoot, I got to work with some very fabulous women who dished out to me their beauty secrets. Some were shocking!  One of my favorites was the beauty advantages of using Preparation H (Yes! The hemorrhoid cream). I had heard before that the cream had magical powers to cure puffiness, but I really didn’t understand the effect until I sat down with these gorgeous women, who all looked at least 12 years younger than their age, seriously! Preparation H is not only incredible at fighting puffy eyes, but it also helps reduce wrinkle volume, which is a great way to knock years off your age.  The secret ingredient? The phenylephrine found in Preparation H has been said to reduce dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles by dermatologists.

Before you get ready, put a little Preparation H around your eye area, make sure to avoid getting any of the cream if your eye.  Let sit for 5-10 minutes then wash off and get ready as usual. Please keep in mind, this is great to use before a special occasion.  Continuous use could cause irritation or skin complications (from continuous unnatural shrinking of the wrinkles).
