Did you know that smoking cigarettes dries out and weakens the skin on your face as well as your whole body? It also causes premature aging around the eyes in particular. The chemicals found in cigarettes are toxic and can cause irritation around the eyes, which could result in dark circles or undereye bags in addition to a wrinkled, droopy appearance. If addiction has got you in its grips, you may want to try some natural approaches to quitting smoking.
Wrinkle creams that come in tubes or pump-tops can be stored in a medicine cabinet or drawer with the rest of your cosmetics. But if you do opt for a wrinkle cream in a jar, we’d suggest the following precautions: Wash your hands thoroughly or use a clean applicator wand for each use, and keep your cream in the fridge (bacteria grow more slowly in the cold).

The LiftActive achieved fantastic results in the clinical trials! After 4 weeks of twice-daily use, 79% of participants agreed it made their skin their skin smoother and 85% felt their skin was more comfortable. Separately, there was found to be a 38% increase in skin firmness! Even better, it was demonstrated that with continued use, the cream gives long-lasting effects!
Find anti-wrinkle creams that provide the supple, smooth skin you desire. While most anti-aging creams are for your entire face, some eye creams are specifically formulated to minimize the fine lines and nourish the skin around the eyes. Try the anti-aging cream formulas that include ingredients to restore elasticity, stimulate collagen production or firm sag-prone areas. There are even anti-aging hair products designed to shield your hair from the effects of the environment. Select the anti-aging product that will help you smooth, soften and hydrate your skin.

Exercise is a natural way to reduce the signs of aging and can promote a youthful glow to the skin, but the area around your eyes will benefit from special facial exercises. Licensed aesthetician and author of The Yoga Facelift, Marie-Veronique Nadeau explains that yoga for the face involves slow exercises of the facial muscles to help tone and tighten them. (1)  Using light pressure from your fingers as resistance, the exercises involve various facial expressions and pressure.

The very best way to tackle wrinkles is to prevent them in the first place. Everyone we spoke to — dermatologists and chemists alike — noted that the most important wrinkle-fighting product you should own is sunscreen. And not just any sunscreen: a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 (as we learned when reviewing the best sunscreen). Stick with SPF 30; wear it every single day; and reapply as often as the instructions tell you to.
Rivera says that storing your eye cream in the fridge can help to temporarily reduce the look of under-eye bags and dark circles. When they’re cold, eye creams can cause short-term vasoconstriction (meaning tightening of blood vessels), which can be beneficial for those with puffy eyes or dark circles. When you’re ready to use your eye cream, take it out of the fridge and apply it in small dots around your eye until it’s absorbed.
Using this method, you can work out that higher SPF ratings don’t actually give you much more protection than medium SPF ratings. The Skin Cancer Foundation reports that SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB rays, SPF 30 blocks 97% and SPF 50 blocks 98%. While these differences seem insignificant, they can still make a great difference over time, especially if you have fair skin or a history of cancer.
"I have spent up to $90 for 1 fluid oz. of anti-aging serums. A good one makes the perfect 'foundation' for a skin care regimen. I take pride in the compliments I get for being 63 and having the skin of a baby. This product, Aveeno Absolutely Ageless, is absolutely perfect. It smells beautiful, goes on smoothly, and the affect is almost immediate. Your skin will look plumper and fine lines are gone. I love it." —IrisFromOhio

Peptides are amino acids that work as chemical messengers in the body. When it comes to skin care, chains of peptides in anti-wrinkle eye creams stimulate collagen production; this, in turn, decreases the appearance of lines and wrinkles. In this category, Perricone MD Neuropeptide Eye Contour is a powerful anti-aging eye cream for severe loss of elasticity and tone and contains a proprietary blend of neuropeptides.

I signed up for allure with the SR promotion. I’d been charged for the first two boxes like everyone else. I got a shipment notice Friday, and the November box identical to spoilers was delivered today. No SR or mystery gift inside, but I’m guessing that will come separately, even though the insert said if it was my first month, the new member gift would be inside.


I recently subscribed to this box and I was blown away by the quality of the products. I'm no stranger to subscription boxes so I was expecting the usual mediocre bunch of products with a few that stood out but ALL of this was great! I received the January 2019 box and got TWO Sunday Riley products which is pretty insane just price wise. The other products were a mix of hair and makeup that I was really pleased with the quality of. And most importantly for me, you can subscribe through Amazon so it's super easy to cancel if you want to.


Not only is the NuFACE Collagen Booster Copper Complex great for regenerating your skin’s thickness and density, but it can also even reduce the appearance of large pores and give you a more even look! If you have large pores yourself, then you know just how big of a headache those enlarged crevices can be when it comes to makeup application. No matter how hard you may try or what primer you use, your ginormous pores always seem to be the star of the show!

For another retinol-free night cream, try Vichy LiftActiv with Rhamnose Night, a moisturizing powerhouse — and the only cream to score decently in the lab for reducing brown spots, minimizing pores, and improving texture. It also increased firmness by an impressive 28% after two months, an effect that didn't go unnoticed by panelists: "After a few weeks, you definitely could see a difference; the fine lines were disappearing and my skin firmed up," said one. Keep in mind that these creams tend to be more moisturizing than their retinol-based counterparts — a good bet if your skin is especially dry.

Ive not been a fan either but these 2 products are superb. They created the retinol for those who do not not the existing one. I dont like the one they already had. This one is actually really good. As far as the oil omg it truly is amazing. It makes my skin so so soft. While it does have the natural oil smell its good it doesnt have fragrance. It contains so many good for you ingredients. I’ve already noticed my face looks more plump and less dull using both of these products.

EDITOR’S CHOICE: If you are looking for an effective, but affordable anti-aging cream, look no further than the LiftActiv Supreme. It is made by Vichy – the number 1 anti-aging brand in European pharmacies and is enriched with their signature mineral-rich volcanic water. It also contains a skin-boosting, plant-derived sugar and a powerful antioxidant to improve and promote your skin’s resilience against aging, without blocking your pores and causing breakouts. Vichy gives you the highest standards and has proven to produce long-lasting results in as little as 4 weeks! It sure sounds too good to be true, but the clinical results speak for themselves. This really is a luxurious, effective yet affordable anti-aging cream.
So, you slather your skin from head to toe with sunscreen, but you avoid getting your SPF too close to your eyes. It may sound reasonable, since you don’t want to deal with stinging, burning eyes. But that doesn’t negate your need for sun protection in that area. For an easy solution, seek out an eye cream that’s formulated with SPF. Additionally, make sure you wear the proper accessories. When you’ll be exposed to the sun, don a pair of large sunglasses that provide UV protection with a wide brimmed hat. Besides defending against sun damage, proper sun protection can help prevent under-eye bags.
And they wanted in—or really, I wanted them to want in. I would do those fitness supplement–peddling Ponzi schemes proud with my insistence that my friends, family, and co-workers try dermarolling themselves. But then again, it’s probably easier to convince someone to try a protein shake than roll hundreds of tiny needles into her face. That’s fair.
For best results thoroughly cleanse your face and apply a serum first and rub in until absorbed then take a small amount of the Anti Aging Cream on your finger and massage into your skin in a circular motion until it is fully rubbed in, if you need to add more, do so, a little at a time. Please make sure you Avoid direct contact with your eyes and do not swallow.
Awesome Box, Bad Customer Service! I gave the Allure Beauty Box a try for a year and while 8/10 times I loved the items I was mailed, the customer service and lack there of was a deal breaker for me. When they send out the 'spoiler' email it was always without a link, the tracking number came more often than not after my package arrived and after January's huge SNAFU (first they send out a mass email that they have canceled your order, then they send another that reads they have refunded your money and will be sending out a free box, but when this message is opened it says nothing of the sort, and finally an "oops" message stating the box will ship "soon" which for me was another 2 weeks. I decided to cancel my subscription, because what should be a fun, enjoyable treat was becoming nothing but stress.
Great subscription to try out products! I like how a little information booklet comes in the box describing the products. With my first box I gotten a nail oil that far exceeds the total cost I have paid for the box. I like the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro whipped Cream moisturizing my face without a scent is nice cause it didn't break out my picky sensitive skin, the Original Makeup Eraser takes the day off even down to waterproof makeup and to be able to reuse helps out with not throwing away cotton balls or wipes to take off makeup, NudeStix Gel Color Lip and Cheek Balm in J Mama to add a dab of color before heading out the door, Skin fix Foaming Clay cleanser will last me a while as it works hard to remove gunk from my pores while helping my face feel super soft as the spa cucumberish smell helps relax before ending my night, this small box came with 2 moisturizers with Biossance Squalane Probiotic Moisturizer will help make my skin soft & smoother while being a lightweight during the summer months to come is made by a biotech company that gives back to some of the proceeds goes to Zagaya, to help people with malaria treatment & research. I really highly recommend this subscription if you're interested in skincare along with makeup. A chance to try out products before making a commitment plus it comes with promo codes when buying the full sized products! I like learning about what products work for me before buying first and this totally works without breaking the bank for my first box was $10.99 & free shipping. I saved $5, gotten a $18.99 nail oil free as a surprise for signing up that is Londontown Kur nourishing cuticle oil.. A win win cause you can cancel anytime but why would you want to with having this many great products! Allure Beauty Box
I subscribed to the Beauty Box and they took the money out and for 2 weeks I didn't get any sort of confirmation. So I emailed them and 1 week later they responded with just saying it will soon be shipped out. The following month I still didn't receive it and all they said was, "Sorry for inconvenience but it was shipped and nothing we can do at this point." My friend received her box and the bag was broken and one other product and they never replaced it. I cancelled my subscription and went through my bank to get my money back because they did not even respond after that.
Whenever you find yourself shopping around for a new wrinkle-fighting and age-defying Super Product, one factor stands out above the rest: results. Sure, we all love a sweet-smelling formula or a list of ingredients comparable to our favorite salad but, at the end of the day, does any of that really matter if you’re still plagued by crow’s feet and fine lines?
We almost feel as if all we need to tell you about this cream is the rating: it’s a perfect 5.0. Well, sure that happens from time to time, right? Not with 1,115 reviews at the time of this publication, though. That’s not typical at all. That’s over a thousand people giving it 5 stars, saying it’s perfect. It contains most the ingredients you’d think of for a wrinkle cream: hyaluronic acid, retinol, Vitamin E, and green tea, with the right amount of each to make all the difference. And if not, the product has a 100% money-back guarantee.

Fermented green tea offers numerous skincare benefits and is the key ingredient in this anti-aging cream. Antioxidants in green tea, including polyphenols, are known to help repair UV damage and force cancer-causing cells to deteriorate. “The antioxidant activity of polyphenols help protect skin cells from premature damage from environmental factors,” says Dr. Tzu. “This helps decelerate the aging process.”
Dr. Wee also recommends SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex. The product contains anti-glycation ingredients to help protect the skin around the eye and reduce the appearance of under eye bags and wrinkles. “It also contains optical diffusers, anti-aging flavonoids and peptides, proxylane, and hydrating emollients to improve the appearance of under eye skin,” explains Dr. Wee.

Although jade and rose quartz rollers have played a key role in Chinese beauty regimens for centuries, they only recently became a staple in American vanities. Using the smaller stone, gently roll it underneath your eyes in outward motions to promote blood flow and soothe puffy skin. Pro tip: Throw your roller into your refrigerator before each use for the ultimate cooling experience.
Women’s Health Editor’s Note: Dr. Frey is one of my favorite contributors. Her unrelenting passion to bring patients and consumers the most factual information is completely refreshing. Dr. Frey makes the fact-based claim that “anti-wrinkle” creams do not work using evidence that comes directly from the manufacturers’ package inserts!  ….Anna Villarreal
Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, is a skincare essential that’s often forgotten. It can be used to brighten your complexion, reduce inflammation, and keep water from leaving your skin’s protective barrier. Niacinamide helps decrease inflammation of the skin and lower overall redness of the skin, says Dr. Tzu. Research suggests it may also help aid in fading fine lines and wrinkles, amp up your skin’s luminosity, and get rid of dry patches and blotchy areas. Niacinamide has also been found to help prevent and clear up acne, whether it’s hormonal or cystic, research suggests.

Ummm... perhaps it's time you re-educate yourself on the newest medical literature. Nutrition-based science has totally debunked the cholesterol myth. And don't take my word for it, all the biggest names in nutrition agree that eggs are very good for overall human health. This includes Dr David Perlmutter, biohacker Dave Asprey (of Bulletproof fame), writer Michael Pollan, Dr Mark Hyman, Dr Weil, Dr Joseph Mercola... the list is long and exhaustive.
