The Eyes Have It

Eyes are often called the Windows of the Soul and they are the subject of every beauty manual and makeup-instruction video you’ve ever seen.  Women buy contact lenses to change their color, use mascara and curlers to lengthen and enhance the lashes, use eye liner and eye shadow to deepen the shadows and bring out the color.  Then the eyebrows get plucked to create a better “frame” and maybe they even get bleached or colored.  Women worry their eyes are too close, too small, too slanted, too straight, too round.

Some of that, really, isn’t necessary.  Beautiful eyes don’t have to be a particular shape or violet like Elizabeth Taylor’s.  Makeup can enhance a woman’s eyes but clean, fresh and un-made-up eyes can have a natural, dewy appeal.

So what really is a woman to do if she wants great looking eyes.  A lot of the most important steps she can take have to do with lifestyle:

  1. Get enough sleep.
  2. Don’t smoke.
  3. Avoid exposure to the sun.
  4. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  5. Stay hydrated.

Even with a good lifestyle eyes are prone to two things that can make them look older:  fine lines from laughing or frowning, and dark circles from fatigue.  That is because the skin around the eyes is much thinner than the skin on your cheeks or forehead.  Fine lines and wrinkles can be banished with a good moisturizer but sometimes the eyes are sensitive and a cream made just for your eyes may do a better job than an all-purpose moisturizer.  Refresh Me under-eye cream is a wonderful anti-aging skincare product just for the eyes.  It contains effective moisturizers like Hyaluronic Acid and it includes Arnica Montana to reduce darkening and swelling, Rice Bran Extract to regulate darkening and Vitamin K to strengthen capillary walls and reducing the visibility of blood vessels under your eyes.

With daily use of this specially formulated eye cream you will love the younger look of your eyes!
