Okay so here you are all scrubbed and exfoliated…..what next??? Well I would say that that since the eyes are the windows to the soul, and no one wants sunken, droopy, eyes that look like they just came out of an Amanda Hocking novelette. (that can’t be her real name can it?) How to get and keep your eyes looking more youthful is next.
Just because you are over 35, 45, 55 or even 95 doesn't mean you don’t want to look your best. Now I will admit that I had an eye lift over 10 years ago. I was predisposed to big fat bulges that were a unique shade of grayish purple. I looked like I had been punched in the eyes AND hadn't slept in two weeks. Not a good look. Even though my husband at the time told me I was beautiful…every stop in a ladies room with overhead lighting made me groan. So blepoharoplasty (eyelid surgery) it was. I presume the doctor thought he was doing me a favor, but he took off so much tissue on my upper lids that I looked like my eyes had sunken back into my head. It took 10 years for my eyes to look normal again. Of course by that time I was plagued by a whole host of other aging eye issues.
Where to start. Collapsing lids, dark circles, thinning lashes and eyebrows, crows feet….yahoo!!!… ain’t aging fun. Don’t worry, help is at hand.

Isomers eye peel - the only peel I have seen that is made just for the eye area. This product is very gentle and can be used several times a week. It cleans out the upper and lower eye area and is good for getting rid of millia (the acne or whitehead like bumps that appear around the eyes). As everything you use around your eyes, test a tiny bit first. I tear up and get eye irritation from many eye specific product but this one doesn’t bother me in the least. This is great to put on while you exfoliate the rest of your face and neck. Isomers eye peel preps your eye area nicely for other eye products. Unfortunately I do not have a link to this product right now but I am working on finding one for you. Sign up for email and I will let you know as soon as I have one available.
Isomers Fast Lift Eye Serum - This is another product I just cannot live without. If it looks like your eyebrows have fallen about a half an inch you need this product!!! This serum is a thin clear fluid a bit more viscous than water. Apply it with the ring fingers of your hands, go in circles under the outer corners of your toward your nose, then up over the top of your lids, gently pushing your eyebrows up. Go around your eyes in this manner several times. If your brows are really falling give them a couple more gentle but firm pushes upward. You will have beautifully high, arched eyebrows again in several weeks. Isomers Fast Lift Eye Serum I find does not need to be used more then 3 or 4 times a week to maintain my eyebrows in a pretty arch. If you have sagging lids do not hesitate, get the Isomers Fast Lift Eye Serum right away and have lifted lids within the month, without knives!
Perricone Neuropeptide Eye Contour - So have you noticed a weird hollowness under your eyes? This is caused by the fat pads of youth reducing. ( I know I know why can’t the fat pads on your thighs reduce!!!!…). This cream actually stimulates the production of collagen in the eye area filling out the sunken eyed look. Boy I wish I had found this product 10 years ago. I wouldn’t have walked around looking like a bad horror movie for so long. I use it every couple of days but you need to see how long it takes to get the results you want. You should see a difference within two weeks of continuous use. Perricone Neuropeptide Eye Contour is pricey, but hey, it's your eyes. You can get Perricone Neuropeptide Eye Contour for the best price through my links here. just click on the name!
Skinn Hylighten - This baby is pure magic for getting rid of dark circles and puffiness. Skinn Hylighten comes in a small container with a metal ball at the tip. this super concentrated fomula contains maximum levels of Haloxyl, the only patented ingredient scientifically proven to diminish puffiness and under-eye dark circles caused by stress, fatigue, even genetics. Skinn Hylighten combats these three known causes of dark, under eye circles, by slowly breaking them down and being synthesized out of the body.
Because of the diminutive size you can carry it with you anywhere. The product itself is a very thin liquid that you roll around your eyes. It is cool going on with the metal application ball so it has an immediate effect on puffiness around the eyes. I found that within a week of use the dark circles around my eyes had diminished, and within two weeks virtually disappeared. Check out these before and afters.
Skinn Hylighten is one of my absolutely MUST HAVES. If you have dark circles around your eyes do yourself a favor and try this. Like anything else it will not work overnight. So don’t get discouraged if in two days things haven’t changed much. If you use it twice or three or even more times a day for two weeks and don’t see any change send it back! But I would be very surprised if you didn’t see a big improvement. It is so easy to use I keep a couple around the house and apply whenever I think of it. Skinn Hylighten is definitely worth a try.
Perricone High Potency Eye Lift - There is a reason why Dr. Perricone’s products have taken the anti aging skin care market by storm…..he knows what he is doing. I use the Perricone High Potency Eye Lift after any other products or serums. I gently (as always around the eyes) dab this creamy lotion all around my eyes before I go to bed. I pay special attention to the crows feet area. I may even put on a bit more after the first application dries. I am always happy that I have done this the next morning. Your eyes will look brighter and more lifted, and wrinkles will be reduced.Perricone High Potency Eye Lift contains a proprietary blend of ingredients incuding DMAE, phospolipids and pycnogenol, This is the perfect way to “seal” in any other serums and lotions you my use. I generally use Perricone High Potency Eye Lift before bed, but it can be used in your daytime routine as well.
