Beauty Thursday: Eye Will Survive

Today I want to talk about the most important part of our body to take care of when we are trying to prevent signs of aging; our eyes. The skin around our eyes is extremely delicate and prone to fine lines, wrinkles, darkness, and puffiness. To help combat this I have been using a combination of an amazing eye cream and an efective tool to help the anti-aging properties of the cream seep into the deeper layers of skin. By using these products together, I have seen a significant reduction in the puffiness of my eyes, as well as some evident fine lines and dryness start to fade. I tend to retain a ton of water in my eye area, causing me to look extremely tired most mornings. This puffiness has always been something I have struggled with and something I am quite self conscious about. I really do notice a difference when I use these products in the morning. I can feel the cream start to sink in and my eyes almost feel as if they are opening up more. As far as reducing wrinkles, I know I am only 25 and I do not have deep set wrinkles or crows feet quite yet, but I believe that preventative measures are extremely important. It is much easier to prevent signs of again then it is to reverse them.

The cream I have been using to rescue my tired, puffy eyes has been the Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream. In my opinion, the best part about this product is the fact that it targets three major eye issues: puffiness, darkness, and wrinkles. It contains collagen stimulating peptides for fighting and preventing wrinkles, anti-inflammatory peptides for the reduction of puffiness, and optical light diffusers to noticeably brighten the area.  It also contains macadamia seed oil to keep the area hydrated, but not greasy. ALL other eye creams I have tried in the past have somehow failed me. Either they have done nothing to reduce puffiness (some even INCREASE it if I applied them at night), or my skin is too sensitive and tiny red bumps start to form around my whole eye area. After using this product for two months, its safe to say I will NEVER be switching to anything else. It solves my issues, I can apply it morning and night, and it does not irritate my sensitive skin.

The tool that has been aiding my amazing eye cream is the Michael Todd True Organics Eye-O-Sonic. I know I have briefly mentioned this tool in the past, but I feel as though it works even better now that I am pairing it with such an awesome eye cream.  Creams and serums can be somewhat useless if it is not penetrating to the deeper layers of the skin, which is where this amazing tool comes into play. It uses ultrasonic waves that pulse at 160 oscillations per second to increase the absorption of your eye creams and serums. I just apply a tiny amount of eye cream under my eye and spread it all around with this tool. It starts to pulsate once the tip comes in contact with your skin. The cream also helps to glide it along your eye area. I use it for about a minute on each eye, both morning and night. I can really feel a difference immediately after, it is pretty incredible.
