Hitting The Beach: We All Need A Really Excellent Eye Cream

If you believe eye creams are only for OLDER women, like those OVER 40, think again.

Everyone needs to apply an eye cream, because that part of the face ages rapidly. The skin under the eyes, and all around the eyes for that matter, is dry, thin + delicate.

Then consider all the sun our eyes come in contact with daily, and you get the picture.

There are gazillions of eye creams out there. It's best to find one with a retinoid. This potent Vitamin-A derivative can do a few great things:

1.  Improve under eye circles, so they look lighter.

2.  Help smooth out under eye bags + firm up the skin.

3.  Diminish the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles.

We like this eye cream. No, NOT so cheap, but it comes from a very reputable skin care line:

Philosophy Miracle Worker Retinoid Eye Repair Cream ($65, at Macy's).

A retinoid formula can be tough to handle, so if eye area is sensitive, apply at night.

We like retinoid formulas because they encourage cell turnover and tighten things up. But go easy on the cream at the beginning. A little dab goes a long way.
