Pamper Your Eyes..They're The Only One's You've Got!

I don't care if you're 21 or 41, as women (and men) we are all concerned with keeping ourselves looking youthful for as long as possible. Preventative measures people!! I'm sure we all have our share of anti-aging creams and serums. Where does it all start? With your eyes! Eye creams are one of the most popular anti-aging products. Why? Because no one wants to end up with crows feet. Obviously!!! 

If you're 41 I'm sure you already have an eye cream incorporated into your skincare regime by now...if you don't then shame on you! And if you're 21, don't you think it's time to start?? You may not have many wrinkles now, but the sooner you start your preventative measures the better off you'll be in the long run! Not to mention you need something to take care of those puffy, dark circles as a result from staying out all night or up all night working on those papers. Finding an eye cream that will do both of those things is key! 

I won't lie, I'm no where near wrinkle road right now...but I do deal with dark circles and puffiness on a pretty frequent basis. I'm concerned with anti-aging as well as treating my dark circles. That is why my all time favorite eye cream would have to be the Aveda Green Science Firming Eye Cream. This baby is a miracle worker! It's smooth an creamy and leaves the skin around my eyes feeling super soft! My favorite part is that unlike many eye creams, it's gentle enough to be used all over the eye lid as well. The texture is very smooth and a little bit of product goes a long way. Some of the main ingredients listed are lady thistle, organic argan oil and cactus formula. These ingredients bring in the most moisture that is needed in order to plump up the skin and smooth out wrinkles. Dry skin = More Wrinkles; So, an eye cream that is extremely moisturizing is key to diminishing fine lines and wrinkles and preventing new ones. Another key ingredient found in this eye cream is plant-derived buckwheat wax, which aids in minimizing the appearance of fine lines as well. Below you'll see pictures of the product in packaging and an example of about how much product you need per eye.
A tip for applying your eye cream; Always use your ring finger and softly pat the cream around the eye, the brow bone and on the eye lid gently if your eye cream is safe to use on the lid.
