“As the skin ages, its cellular turnover capabilities slow down. A gentle, weekly scrub promotes cell turnover and can help keep skin glowing and healthy-looking. Used once a week, this scrub gently exfoliates my skin without irritation and contains ingredients like lavender and probiotics to help calm things down. I have rosacea and I'm able to use this product without any issues. I consider it a nice wake up for my skin,” says Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, M.D., assistant clinical professor, Department of Dermatology at the George Washington University Medical Center.
Nowadays, there are masks for everything. Face, hair, lips, and even eyes! If you’re wondering why all those masks are necessary, it’s because there isn’t a one size fits all product. You probably won’t want your favorite face mask getting to get too close to your eyes, right? So, you need a mask that’s specifically designed for the under-eye area. Eye masks are typically cushy, apostrophe-shaped sheets that go underneath your eyes, right where your under-eye bags happen to be.
I saw it advertised online and thought it would be a great way to try new beauty products without spending a lot of money on them first. I also was attracted to the ad showing some high-end cosmetics, like NARS. I liked the fact the box would contain some beauty products I'd never heard of, especially skin care products. I also liked the beauty tools that were included. However, I received a lot of products that I wouldn't use or colors outside of my palette. I would prefer it to be more customized, and I wish it had an option to be sent every other month as opposed to every month.
Use hydrating and brightening eye cream. I was using one by Mychelle before I switched to Bella Aura Eye Cream, and this one really works for me. The thing with eye cream is that if it doesn’t show improvement, you use it infrequently–and thus diminishing what returns you may have had. Look for Vitamin C which is a precursor to collagen *and* has brightening powers. I use a powerful antioxidant serum like Bella Aura Antioxidant Booster or Earthwise Beauty Nap in the Meadow Serum right up until the lower lash line, and *then* layer an eye cream on top.
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.”
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.
While we like to think we actually get better with age, we totally understand that there might be some pesky skin changes you want to address as the years pass. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly when to start incorporating anti-aging products into your routine, so we chatted with one of our favorite experts, Genevieve Vielbig, R.N., B.S.N., C.A.N.S., to get the scoop on the best approach to wrinkle creams.
“I love this product because it’s sensitive enough for first-time retinol users. Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, does a lot. It minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes hyperpigmentation, blackheads and dark spots and reduces inflammation, pore size and the appearance of blemishes. The only issue is that it can be harsh on the skin, leaving it dry and irritated. But not this product!
I’m not a fan of any Bliss products, they seem harsh. I’ve been spending time researching ingredients and choosing products based on that, not just reviews. We have chemists among us but that does not make them experts on skin itself. Many people’s skin reacts in different ways. I’m loving how gentle Tacha products are and I am seeing real results, something many beauty lines claim but have not really come through for me. Trouble is Tacha is so expensive, however, the travel sizes go a long way and I can afford those. Fantastic line!
Overdoing it in the sun can make the skin around your eyes sag and wrinkle as well as cause dehydration of the skin. A mineral-based or homemade sunscreen, a good pair of UV-protected sunglasses, and a hat can do wonders to help protect your face from those harmful rays, ultimately keeping the skin around the eyes from wrinkling and darkening due to the effects of the sun.

But we weren’t done. To ensure safety and efficacy, we also preferred wrinkle creams that came in tubes or pump-tops rather than tubs or jars. Chemist Jennifer Reid explains, “Sticking your fingers directly into the product can introduce bacteria, and open tubs also expose a large surface area of the product to oxygen.” Like UV rays, oxygen can degrade the effectiveness of our key ingredients. But bacteria is a whole other mess.
I chose Allure Beauty Box because of how long it lasts. When water hits my face, my makeup doesn't come off. It's really good. When I eat, it doesn't smear on the food. It met all my expectations. However, bright colors aren't appealing to me and I disliked on how some colors were very bright. I prefer low, aesthetic colors that match my outfit. Bright colors stand out too much. Other than that, I like the quality and how unique it is. From all the others, I like the aesthetic colors. It blends in when I'm taking a photo. It's great for going out on parties as well. You should purchase and try it.
