Few things in life are worse than being told you look “tired”. That’s the politically correct way of telling someone that they look like crap. If you’re reading this, chances are you’re starting to look like you haven’t slept in weeks. Oh, and you’re not fooling people by affectionately calling your crow’s feet “laugh lines”. It’s okay. I’ve been there. Complete disregard of the importance of sunscreen throughout your youth can exaggerate by making you look a decade older than you actually are. Pretty unbelievable.
The first thing you have to do is identify your issues. Do you have puffy eyes? Dark circles? Or are your eyes so dry they are borderline-crusty?
Now that you have that figured out, you have to find an eye cream that will address and help correct these issues. Fun fact: The skin surrounding the eyes is 10 times thinner than the skin on the rest of your face, making it age 36% faster. We’ve taken the cost and guess work out of finding the best eye cream out there and have conducted our own experiment.
We reviewed and tested some of the top rated creams on the market to see which ones actually worked and which are all just marketing hype. There were several contenders, but only one made into “Holy Grail” status. The winner of our “Best Eye Cream” contest was LifeCell All-in-One Anti-Aging Treatment. We picked this one because it targeted every eye area problem we could think of. It reduced the look of bags, wrinkles, puffiness, dryness and discoloration.
Retinol. Retinol is a wrinkle’s number one enemy. It’s the number one dermatologist recommended ingredients to help reduce the look of aging skin. One of LifeCell’s active ingredients is Retinol. The retinol in LifeCell outshines other retional creams because of its ability to speed up cell turnover and help reveal younger looking skin without the look of fine lines and discoloration without irritating the sensitive skin around the eye. After about a minute of putting on LifeCell, crow’s feet looked smoother and far less noticeable. The light reflectors in LifeCell fill in the lines and after about a month of using it as direct, crow;s feet were nearly non-existent.
Bags and Puffiness
Unless you’re a teen novel vampire, dark, puffy bags under your eyes are not attractive. Some people go as far as saying it brings the allure of mystery, but really all they do is make someone look like they’ve been up all night crying, or depending on how dark, like you were punched in the eye. Enter Eyeliss™ . The secret weapon LifeCell has in it’s arsenal of anti aging power. It’s a patented new compound developed in France that is made up of 3 natural and effective peptides that work synergistically to eliminate the cause of unattractive under-eye puffiness. Initial clinical trials of this compound showed that puffiness under the eye reduced by 70%. Eyeliss prevents the capillary fluids from leaking, in turn preventing swelling and puffiness. After using LifeCell for 3 weeks, the difference was unbelievable. Bags diminished. As well as the snarky “rough night?” comments made by my local coffee house’s barista.
Dryness and Discoloration
Many people don’t know this, but the reason skin under the eyes gets darker is not just because of broken capillaries, but also because of excessive dryness. Think of the hylauronic acid in Lifecell as a tall glass of water for your skin. This powerful ingredient holds over 1,000 times its weight in water. It floods your skin with much needed moisture.
Don’t let tired eyes age you. It’s time to give it some TLC with a quality eye cream. LifeCell is not only effective, it’s also hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and NOT tested on animals. At the time of print, the manufacturers of LifeCell were offering 30 day trials of their product to all new customers. Try it out and leave us your own review! Your skin will thank you!
