Aye Eyes

Dr. Nicholas V. Perricone, the dermatologist who wrote the book (actually, he wrote several) on skin care—inside and out-- recently introduced High Potency Eye Lift, a fast-absorbing eye treatment that provides lifting, reparative and preventative benefits to the delicate skin surrounding the eyes.

Key Benefits of High Potency Eye Lift according to Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals:

Lifts and firms skin that has lost elasticity

Diminishes deep lines and wrinkles

Hydrates skin to prevent future wrinkles

Whether your skin is showing more advanced signs of aging and you desire a lifted appearance, or you simply want to take preventative measures to preserve your youthful skin, High Potency Eye Lift can tone, tighten, lift and brighten, providing a luminous appearance to the eye area.

This feels very nice going on and the pump dispenses just the right amount so none of the precious elixir is wasted.

Sun Shine Shield

It may be dreary and rainy but before you know it, it will be sun- drenched summer and having a supply of sunblock is a smart move. Neutrogena has several new offerings, including Age Shield FACE Sunblock, SPF 90+ (that is not a typo) with Helioplex,. This is an advanced sunscreen that states it shields skin 6 layers deep from UVA rays, which age the skin. It also fights free radicals that can speed up the signs of aging and is oil-free and non greasy.

Also available is Neutrogena’s Ultimate Sport—SPF 55 Sunblock, also with Helioplex. This one is ultra-sweat proof and water proof and is available as a lotion or convenient spray.

And, made for kids, but anyone can use it—Waterguard, an SPF 70+ spray that is waterproof, rub-proof and yet is oil-free. Spray sunscreen is a fast way to protect your skin from the welcome and warm, yet damaging, rays of the sun.
