Use and Eye Cream For a Complete Ageless Look

4553080_blogYour EYES are the biggest culprits in telling people your age. And a good eye cream, can be a nice gag to suppress this unwanted informer. Some of us don’t have this problem, nevertheless, my only argument is that you won’t always be 24.

For a complete ageless look you MUST USE an Eye Cream! And here is why.

The skin around your eyes is generally the first to show the signs of aging. Crow’s feet, dark circles, dryness and the dreaded lost of elasticity all contribute to making your eye area look like the skin of a Sharpee.

This bears repeating, although most of you already know this, the skin around the eyes is thinner, more delicate and thus more prone to wrinkling and discoloration.

I will give you more reasons why you need a special cream and I’m sure you will agree. For someone who is 40 years old, you will have blinked over 28,000,000 times, cut that in half if you are 20.

And squinting and smiling DO NOT help.

You want to maintain this area well moisturized as it does not produce oil and a little eye cream will ward of wrinkles and have you looking Ageless!

My philosophy: an EYE cream should handle three main problems, 1) Dark circles, 2) Fine lines 3) puffiness. And I prefer those that contain anti-aging ingredients.

Lastly, when applying eye cream, it is best to use the fourth or weakest finger as you DON’T WANT your eye routine to be sabotaged by over stretching and pulling on this gentle skin.

I would love to hear your comments or any questions you might have regarding any of your skin care concern. Please email me or call the Joanna Vargas Skin Care Salon in New York City at 212.949.2350.

PS, my shameless plug, Phyt’s Fluide Contour Eye Cream, this item is seriously my most popular retail product here at the salon. It is literally owned by everyone of my clients!

This organic eye cream is even the best kept secret of some of Hollywood’s biggest actresses! Why?

Because it drains out excess puffiness, gets rid of dark circles and hydrates the delicate skin around the eye area. Oh, and the smell is out of this world!

Contains Wheat, a great antioxidant, Hazelnut, Lavendin, which is anti-bacterial, Potassium, Sunflower to help balance the oil in the skin, Ylang Ylang, Wild Chamomile and Lavender.

Apply a pea sized amount to the entire eye area but not on the eye lid both morning and evening after cleansing.
