Some mornings I wake up looking like I’ve been abducted by aliens. My face is puffy, my lips are dry, and my skin is coarse. Worst of all: Thousands upon thousands of fine lines emanate from the corners of my eyes, and the skin beneath my eyes is a crepey mess. These are the ugly physical manifestations of a dehydrated body. Yes, we should all drink more water. But don’t talk to me about that when I’m staring at the Mohave Desert in the mirror. Give me solace.
Give me eye cream, immediately.
A good eye cream can make you feel better instantly. It IMMEDIATELY quenches your skin. I find if I can just lay my hands on good eye cream on a bad morning, that the day begins to look up within five minutes. The crepey-ness is gone, the thousands of new crow’s feet retreat, leaving me with the one set of laugh lines I’ve earned.
My eye skin plumps up, the sagging skin firms, and the whole shebang is taken care of with just a little cream! My current favorite eye cream is 100% Pure’s Acai Eye Cream. It’s clean, it’s green. It works. 100PercentPure.com makes two great eye creams: One formula relies primarily on coffee, to rev up the eye, and the other uses the antioxidant (and anti aging) power of concentrated acai (a groovy south american fruit) to restore youth.
My advice? Don’t wait for an alien abduction. I’m a HUGE fan of eye cream; use it DAY AND NIGHT (it’s rich and thick and essential and also preps your skin for that concealer I know you’re wearing!) and I try as many different ones as I can. You’ll know a good eye cream by its power to make you feel better as soon as you massage it in. Take that, aliens!
