How people judge your age.

September 16, 2010

It's in your eyes. Younger people judge the ages of those older than they by looking into and around the eyes. In a recent study, scientists tracked the eye movements of participants, who averaged 21 years old, and found that they rated age most often by looking at the eye region. The eyebrows and lower lids were noticed the most. The next most common areas evaluated were the forehead and nose. The same results held true when judging fatigue.* Think about your own assessment of others. How many times have you needed only one look at a friend's eyes to know if she's feeling sad or sick or happy or well? The lesson is: take special care of your eyes. We are here to help. In general, serums and oils are best for wrinkles; creams are best for puffiness and discoloration.  Wrinkle ingredients to look for include natural botanicals such as carrot oil, rosehip seed (Rosa mosqueta) oil, borage oil, evening primrose oil, jojoba oil, olive oil (very pure), acai oil, and marula oil. Essential oils used to smooth skin include rosemary verbenone, sea buckthorne berry, and frankincense. Cosmetic laboratories have provided wonder molecules for wrinkles such as argireline and Matrixyl(TM). Eye creams for puffiness and discoloration should include ingredients such as peptides, chrysin, sodium hyaluronate, licorice, caffeine, helichrysum essential oil, rosehip seed oil, alpha lipoic acid, hespiridin, and glutathione. Rest assured; we have you covered. You will find potent synergies of these ingredients in our Rosehip Serum, Carrot Repair Serum, Night Line Relief Serum, Rice and Olives Deep Cleansing and Facial Serum, and the Essential Eye Crème. For best results, layer a serum under a cream. All of our formulas are free of mineral oil and pore-clogging additives. You may prefer to use the more oil based serums at night and the serum emulsions during the day. And for goodness sakes, don’t forget to get enough sleep. *Opthamology, February, 2009.
