Serum that goes under my eyes to get rid of some of the baggage that comes with aging is a good idea as long as injections are not involved. I have been using eye creams for decades (I won’t say how many!) to help with sagging skin and dark under-eye circles. I was told years ago to gently pat and lightly spread the cream or lotion onto the area around the eyes with a gentle inward motion toward the nose. Lotion is spread gently to the upper lid moving outward from the nose just below the brow. I was ready to try Elite Serum Rx extra strength, an Argireline anti-aging eye serum. The serum comes in a syringe, but there are no needles because this product is not injected. The small amount of serum is spread gently by light patting with my ring finger. It is absorbed through the skin. I always remember to press gently at the temple bone. It works well to fill in lines and minimize puffiness with no discomfort. The 0.47 ounce syringe provides measured doses for 60 applications. I apply it once a day. The package includes application information. […]

How can men change our skin for the better, especially as there may be only five minutes a day to dedicate to it? Using the following skincare products may not make your skin as soft as a baby’s bottom or miraculously turn any of us average Joes into smooth, yogurt-pitching founders of the Fountain of Youth – yes, I’m talking about Hollywood’s never-aged-a-day-in-his-life John Stamos – but, a little effort can generate noticeable improvements.

There are women who begin to worry about the onset of wrinkles as early as the age of 25. Others say this is a bit too soon while some dermatologists believe this is the perfect time to embrace an anti-aging skincare routine. Fine lines and wrinkles tend to be troubling for many women (and men), especially when they start to appear on their faces early in life. Some lifestyle choices can contribute to wrinkles such as poor sleep habits, alcohol consumption and poor diet. The fact of the matter is, that there really is no age that is too early to begin worrying about wrinkles. Being proactive can help you prevent wrinkles later on in life. […]
Detoxing Through Your Food Your skin is an organ, and your body’s first line of defense against the outside world. Skin goes through a lot on a daily basis and has the scars to prove it!

The Importance of Sunscreen The sun makes us feel warm and gives our bodies much needed Vitamin D. You can, however, get too much of a good thing and the sun’s Ultra Violet A and B rays can also damage skin, leading to premature wrinkles and carcinomas. The UVB rays can cause skin to redden and burn within 15 minutes of exposure in some people, especially during the summer. The UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin causing wrinkles and skin cancer in some people. Cancer cells are the result of excessive radiation that has actually altered the DNA of keratinocyte cells in the basal layer of the epidermis. Both A and B UV rays can contribute to cancer cells.
