I recently read somewhere that we should not be using eye creams on our eyelids, nor should we be using an eye cream anywhere near our eyes before we go to sleep. I have always put on eye cream before bed, and never had a problem. Many skincare companies suggest that you not put eye creams on your upper eyelids, period, because you could suffer from symptoms that cause discomfort, and other adverse reactions . Many reports suggest that it is probable that you’ll wake up with two puffy eyes as a result of nighttime eye creams on your eye lids. It has also been suggested that when your body temperature rises it may cause the cream on your lids to melt into your eyes, or your tears could cause the cream on your lids to run into your eyes . Or, you could experience lids that will burn, itch, swell, turn red, and become a big ugly mess.
It also could sting your eyes (the theory being that creams can penetrate the thin skin of the lids and go directly in your eyes) , cause a sensitivity to light, or create the inability to keep your eyes open.
Our upper eyelids are extremely thin-skinned and fragile. Our eye lids are the only protection our eyes have between them and the world! We need to BEWARE, or at least be aware of the products we put on our eye lids at bedtime. Which brings me to an excellent Product, created by one of the most innovative, bio-technological , and creative skincare lines. Firm X Eyelid Lift Serum from Peter Thomas Roth ($85 ).
Peter Thomas Roth’s Firm X Lift Serum is specifically made for the eye lids, and addresses upper eyelid hooding and crepiness. It provides an
immediate tightening sensation using soft- focus ingredients and color-correcting pigments that blur imperfections.
It diffuses the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and it multitasks by doubling as an eyelid primer to create a
smooth canvas for flawless makeup and long-lasting application.
Nutrex Ef6 -supports natural cellular proliferation and helps support the skin’s natural repair mechanisms
Epidermoist -supports natural skin renewal for improved appearance of elasticity and texture
Eye Regener – supports natural collagen to improve the appearance of skin firmness and tone while helping to visibly diminish excess fluids
Bioskinup Contour- improves the appearance of upper eyelid puffiness
What I love about Peter Thomas Roth’s Firm X Eyelid Lift Serum……….I get immediate gratification every time I put it on, and I appreciate that one product does double duty, performing as both an eyelid serum and an eyelid primer before applying my makeup. My eyelids seemed to tighten immediately and the serum created a smooth canvas on my lids so that my eye makeup would last all day. Plus, the ingredients for the Neuro Eyelid Complex provide long-term anti-aging results . I like that the product is specifically made for the eyelid, and it can be applied it twice a day, in the morning before I put on my makeup, and at night just before going to bed. All I can say is “You Go PTR!” You get it! Our eyes are our windows to the world, so we need to protect them, and at the same time, we want to fight the aging process. Plus, we don’t need to buy the extra product, an eye primer!
Go for this one girls! The bottle lasts a long time and you only need a dime amount for both eyes!
You are Awesome!
We’re missing you already!
