UVB rays are the main cause of sunburn and reddening. It has different strengths during different seasons, times of day and location, but it can burn and damage your skin all year. It may not penetrate glass as much as UVA rays do, but as much as 80% of UVB rays bounce off reflective surfaces such as snow. It is also a contributing factor to premature aging from sun damage.
Subscribed to the beauty box via MSA in early August, inputted a different shipping and billing address and they shipped it to my billing address anyway. I called and asked Allure why would they ask for that information if they're going to ship it to the billing address regardless, and they said that there are multiple ways to sign up and usually it defaults to the billing address, even if the shipping option is specified (so why even ask for shipping if that's the case? remove the option?). I contacted them multiple times via phone to see when they would send my beauty box (to the correct address this time). I was originally told 5-10 business days. After ten business days with no box, I reached back out and this time spoke to a manager. She was understanding, refunded my money, said she would send it out again but she informed me they only ship boxes out ONCE A MONTH. it would be 21-30 days for me to receive that box.
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.
Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, fights free radicals, a byproduct of cell metabolism in your body. Free radicals are thought to attack proteins, fats and DNA -- and break down collagen, leading to lines and wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle eye creams that include vitamin C are top in the anti-aging category because of their ability to minimize lines, while firming and brightening skin. Dermatologist formulated Murad Essential-C Eye Cream SPF 15 is a top anti-wrinkle eye cream, featuring a patented anti-aging formula.

I’m happy to see that there are several of you that are loving the spoilers for January. Now I loved the December box but I’m definitely not feeling the January or the February box lol. I’m not complaining because I know come March I may love the box. It’s a subscription box you can’t make everyone happy 100% of the time and you know what I accept that and I am ok with that. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year!
“Brands can’t just ship the same things over and over and expect to ride the coattails of this subscription success trend either,” Tzuo said. “In addition to demanding immediate, ongoing fulfillment, customers today want to be happily surprised on a regular basis. And if brands don’t meet those expectations, they get dropped, not to mention trashed on social media. It’s that simple.”
So, if it typically takes you 20 minutes to burn and you’re using an SPF 30 sunscreen, you can expect protection for up to 600 minutes (10 hours). This, of course, depends on the time of day, whether you are sweating or swimming, the severity of the rays, etc. However you will only be protected up to the maximum. It is important that you take into account sweat, bathing and sun cream absorption though.
A plastic surgery procedure known as blepharoplasty is another conventional treatment option that might be suggested by your dermatologist if other methods don’t seem to help. But keep in mind that any surgery can be risky, and cosmetic surgery might not be covered by your health insurance. Discuss the risks and benefits and any concerns you might have with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon. (9)

According to the Mayo Clinic, under-eye bags are a common issue that many people experience as they age. Since the skin around your eyes is generally thinner than the rest of your skin, it’s more prone to showing signs of aging like under-eye bags, sagging skin, and dark circles. What’s more, the tissues and muscles around your eyes tend to weaken as you age, meaning the delicate skin in that area can become more susceptible to visible wrinkling and sagging. And that’s not all! As you age, the fat around your eyes, which supports the area, can start to sink, which can also contribute to under-eye bags.
If you're into essential oils, you'll be happy to know there are several oils that combat under-eye puffiness and dark circles. Try mixing an essential oil with coconut oil and rubbing it under your eyes. Rose geranium, fennel, lavender, German chamomile and rosemary essential oil are hailed as the best essential oils for getting rid of under-eye bags.

In a previous Health interview, dermatologist Jessica Krant MD, recommended this product for those looking to start using a retinol product, explaining that "the ingredients are of good quality and I have never had anyone complain about any skin reaction or difficulty managing this retinol." It packs hyaluronic acid to boost moisture while also erasing fine lines.
Bags under eyes — mild swelling or puffiness under the eyes — are common as you age. With aging, the tissues around your eyes, including some of the muscles supporting your eyelids, weaken. Normal fat that helps support the eyes can then move into the lower eyelids, causing the lids to appear puffy. Fluid also may accumulate in the space below your eyes, adding to the swelling.

Nope, no shipping email or info even though I was charged. I emailed customer service who, a week later, sent a canned response saying I’ll get tracking when it ships, in the mean time log into my account. Completely useless info. My account says update payment method (I paid w first box using PayPal) and I don’t want to put a credit card number in and mess anything up, especially since I already paid. Anyone else know what’s going on in this situation? Do others accounts show the order and status, such as “processing” or anything?
I got my CEO Serum last Friday. I was happy, considering that I never thought I was going to get it. I signed up for two boxes, at least through this month, because everything I’ve ever tried from Sunday Riley has worked great for my skin. I got an email this morning that confused me though – it was an update on my January box. In the preview of the gmail, it said that allure was sorry for the delay, processing a refund, and sending me a free box” but when I open the email, it says “your box should ship out next week”. Sooo which is which? I really don’t wanna get suckered out of the SR.
In addition to a lack of results, users of prescription retinoids often experience adverse side effects.  Burning and stinging of the skin, redness, peeling, and severe dryness are common complaints. Although many of these symptoms may resolve over weeks to months of use, some individuals experience persistent irritation and inflammation from topical retinoids.
It’s tough to be consistent when you won’t see results for weeks, months, or sometimes even years. But keep the faith. A wrinkle cream with the right ingredients will ultimately keep you looking younger. “These products won’t work if you don’t use them consistently for several weeks,” says Dr. Ford. “Try taking a selfie at the beginning of treatment and again at 90 days,” she recommends. “See if change is occurring: your freckles should be lighter, wrinkles should be less noticeable, and your skin more radiant.”
Like creams, serums can be easy to use and highly effective, depending on the formula. Some serums use botanical antioxidants to treat under eye bags. The antioxidants help to prevent collagen damage, maintain the skin’s elasticity and brighten skin pigmentation. Others contain hyaluronic acid or retinol. Retinol, while highly useful for fighting wrinkles and producing collagen, can be harsh on the sensitive eye area, so always test it first. No matter which serum you pick, try to choose one in a rollerball tube for an easy application that also helps disperse fluid build-up.
Bags under eyes — mild swelling or puffiness under the eyes — are common as you age. With aging, the tissues around your eyes, including some of the muscles supporting your eyelids, weaken.

Each month’s box contents will vary, but the company states that they will all contain at least five products and occasionally six or seven. Each product will be unique, though some boxes can have different variations of a similar item. For instance, the November 2018 box include a Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask, Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask, and a Lapcos Metallic Sheet Mask in Pearl.
Apparently the Sunday Riley Glow Serum in the January box is a full size. You can preorder that and the retinoid cream on Sunday Riley’s website. It comes in a kit with a glycolic treatment. I’m super excited for all 3 boxes! I’m a little sad that the retinoid cream from Sunday Riley will be wasted on me because I already have a high strength prescription retinoid cream I use every night.
