Rejuvenating The Delicate Eye Area

If you want to guess someone's age, take a look under their eyes, and around them. That's where the damage begins. That is where you can readily observe fine lines and wrinkles.

Why? As most skin specialists will tell you, the eye area contains the thinnest skin in the body. It is delicate and easily damaged. Unfortunately, the eye area also holds the biggest challenge for rejuvenating, or making look youthful again.

Sure, we see all the eye creams and serums lining store shelves and expensive skin salons. We are constantly bombarded with promises of younger, wrinkle-free eyes. No more bags. No more undereye circles. Etc.

But 'rebuilding' the eye area without cosmetic surgery is not impossible, but if you've enjoyed the sun for a number of years, well, you've got a task on your hands.

According to Dr. Loren Pickart at, what we wear on top of our skin and how we cleanse it, can destroy the delicate skin, too:

"The use of many color cosmetics and makeup, with their high concentrations of dyes and metal salts, can produce extensive skin damage and sagging. This skin is often chronically irritated and may be in a condition of sub-clinical inflammation.......Many cleansers used to remove makeup cause further irritation by stripping away protective lipids from the skin. "

Dr. Pickart suggests using his own Skin Biology skin care line.

"Rebuilding this skin area is complicated. Use of progressively stronger remodeling system works best. This method was developed by our clients. Most clients start with Super GHK-Copper Cream($39.95) or Super GHK-Copper Serum, CP Night Eyes Premier (relatively mild cream), then move to CP Night Eyes Regular($24.95). When this skin is somewhat thicker and more protective, most clients move to using Super CP Serum, and finally Super Cop($29.95)."

Avon is also boasting about its new Anew Ultimate Contouring Eye System($30) . It's formulated to restore firmness around the eyes, reduce saggy skin under the eye, and rebuild skin's cellular structure.
