I’ve been testing eye wrinkle treatment products for over 35 years and consider myself a bit of an expert in this area :-)
So, I’d like to share my favorite finds and what has or has not worked for me.
By age 25 I knew a good under eye treatment was critical.............
While the rest of my face seemed to be aging pretty well, my eyes were showing early signs of aging. Boy, talk about depressing!
By the time I was 40 years old, I started looking into alternative solutions besides just eye wrinkle creams - solutions like:
Ok, so here is a list of treatments that have worked well for me........................
Under Eye Wrinkles – Again, facial exercise program to the rescue! For this under eye wrinkle issue, Carolyn (the owner/creator of CFF exercise program) gave me a special exercise that she invented called the Circle Up Eye Rub. These results took about 7-10 weeks.
The change is very subtle, but I think it's really helped. And, it will keep on improving as long as I keep doing the exercises.
Crow’s Feet - I tried Botox and it worked very well. But only for eye wrinkles at the corners of the eyes not for the lines under my eyes. And, it didn’t address other issues like dark circles, puffy eyelids, and crepey skin.
The best permanent results I’ve ever seen in terms of reducing wrinkles all around the eyes especially in the outer corners is the crow’s feet facial exercise. Click on the link to see my before and after pictures.
Under Eye Bags and Crepey Skin - Since 2012 this has been a favorite treatment to help reduce the look of discoloration and bags under the eyes.
Puffy Eyes – Just like every other woman in the world, I heard about Preparation H for puffy eyes. Well, maybe it was helpful years ago when it contained a special ingredient that was known to shrink swollen tissues. Well, that’s not true anymore. Read more about Preparation H and puffy eyes remedy….And see what does work. My friend has very puffy eyes and agreed to let me video her before and after transformation.
Eye Moisturizers – Well, I still go around and around on this topic. First, there are TONS of eye moisturizers on the market, so I’m always trying a new one. But, for the most part they all seem pretty similar. Meaning - I don't think an eye moisturizer will make a drastic difference in terms of sagging skin, puffiness, or deep wrinkles. So now I choose ones that are:
So I switch different eye wrinkle treatment products around. Some products I use more often during the winter like retinol creams and then I switch over to vitamin C serums during the summer.
I like retinols because they're not as harsh as prescription Retin-A, but help encourage exfoliation and skin cell turnover. You can read more about them here Retinol Cream Reviews.
I also like to use copper peptides because research shows it helps repair damaged aged skin. You can read more about the benefits of copper peptides for skin here......
My current favorite product is the Copper Peptide Eye Therapy by Nu Glow.
Finally, my other favorite eye moisturizer is Carolyn's Vitamin C Serum. It's not greasy, won't puff up my eyes. Actually, like the retinol cream - I use this all over my face and neck too.
No matter what eye wrinkle treatment I use, I ALWAYS apply my instant eye lifting serum on top of my eye products and I get fabulous results every time. It's an instant temporary fix - but seems to make the whole under eye area look tighter and smoother.
And, I've tried a ton of eye lifting serums - this one by far is the best. Here is a review of some popular serums for under eye puffiness.
