Anti Aging Skin Care

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. I have fine lines around my eyes but no where else (yet), how can i deal with them and stop them from getting worse?

The eye area is usually the first to show fine lines, since the skin here is so much thinner than the rest of the face, and it also lacks the oil glands that work as anti-wrinkle lubricants.

Of course the obvious: ‘use a good eye cream’. Its main job should be hydration so any sort of cream here is fine, no need for the expensive types

Also consider simply bringing up your usual moisturizer just over the eye bone (orbital bone). Use an eye cream as well for a double whammy, or not….

Your normal moisturizer by itself is adequate, especially if you use a good active face cream like our Complete Retinol Cream. This will deal with those fine lines very nicely.

More quick tips for fine lines around the eyes:

  • Do you do a lot of work on the computer? Watch a lot of tv or read on an iPad?Consider ‘computer glasses’, which are tinted to reflect back the glare of screens to protect your eyes. Less squinting, less eye strain, less pain, equals less wrinkles! (See some here on Amazon*)
  • Use self massage/tapping to relax the area – a major cause of eye-fine-lines and wrinkles is tension in the area. Use your ring fingers to gentle massage at least once a day – before bed is the perfect time to ensure your eyes are relaxed while you sleep, instead of forming wrinkles! See this article for a fantastic, simple routine to follow (video included).
  • It goes without saying that sunglasses will help, but also make sure to bring your sunscreen right up and over the orbital bone. This will help prevent sun damage which causes dry, rough, weaker skin.
  • Are you a stomach sleeper? This is an overlooked cause of not only eye wrinkles but puffy eyes and dark circles. It is a hard habit to break, but see if you can for one or two nights and notice the difference!
  • Mashed up cucumbers are a simple, cheap and refreshing way to relax this area. Simply mash/slice/chop and apply in a semi circle under your eyes (this is better than slices, since a cucumber mash can be applied right onto skin). Bonus – this also temporarily tightens and clarifies.

Q. Are Vitamin C serums really a waste of time?

There are some good quality vitamin C products around, so to say they are a waste of time in general wouldn’t be fair… However because vitamin C is such a volatile molecule it requires not only the right extraction but the right handling and storage.

And like anything in skin care it requires a decent amount of potency to actually do anything – a lot of over-the-counter serums and moisturizers are nothing more than expensive hydrating products.

But, vitamin C does have excellent skin benefits, especially for anti aging as it brightens and tightens. So it can be very worthwhile to make your own serum, which ensures potency, quality and control (and is usually much less expensive).
