    25 Reasons to use Antiaging Eye Cream. I must admit, I have been very slack at applying eye cream and now the wrinkles are starting to show. I have always wondered if there is such a thing as an antiaging eye cream. Thanks to Marie Bertrand, I now know there is. And I now use it too!

    25 Reasons Why I LOVE my Eye Nourisher

    Wednesday, February 17, 2010 at 9:59am

    1. It works on fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to its active ingredient “Centella asiatica”.

    2. It gently exfoliates the eye contour, which is very difficult to do in a normal skin care routine.

    3. When combined with oral intake of a high-quality grape-seed extract (typically 2 tablets in the morning and 2 at night), my Eye Nourisher helps fade the appearance of dark circles in all skin types – caucasian, african american, asian, indian, …

    4. Because of the presence of the Regenisomes, it actually repairs DNA damage around the delicate eye area.

    5. My Eye Nourisher is strongly antioxidant and will prevent future fine lines and wrinkles.

    6. Its texture is light yet moisturizing.

    7. It will not cause milia around the eye contour.

    8. My patients usually start to see results within 3 weeks, when applied twice a day.

    9. It is hypoallergenic and very well tolerated when properly applied (always stay on the periorbital bone and pat, pat, pat all around the eye).

    10. Echinacea helps soothe and calm the delicate eye contour.

    11. It contains vitamins A, C and E – essential for healthy skin cells around the eye.

    12. It is free of added chemical preservatives. (if you don’t quite grasp why that’s important, please refer to my other discussion “The problem with Chemical Preservatives)

    13. The DSR Technology it contains helps prevent the breakdown of collagen, an essential protein for skin’s youthful appearance.

    14. The DSR technology is an acid-free exfoliating technology that includes Glucosamine HCI, algae extract, yeast extract and urea. All natural ingredients!

    15. In clinical studies, the DSR Technology has been shown to improve the appearance of:
    a) fine lines & wrinkles,
    b) superficial and deep firmness,
    c) clarity of the skin and
    d) strengthening of the skin (makes it less sensitive!)

    16. One tube is inexpensive in comparison to other brands (do your research, skin care lovers!)

    17. It is the #1 Treatment Eye Product at my clinic, SkinScience (actually, it’s the only one we carry now, because it works better than anything else on the market)

    18. Patients come back and purchase 2-3 tubes at a time, because they are so impressed with the results! They want to share this great product with their friends & family. I can live with that. 🙂

    19. It’s like food for your eye area: green tea, grape seed extract, whole grape extract, oryzanol (rice bran extract) – what a powerful blend of healthy ingredients!

    20. Two (2) different forms of vitamin C ensure skin cells are protected inside and out.

    21. For aestheticians and spas, my Eye Nourisher can be used to perform a lymphatic drainage of the eye contour before a masque or before a galvanic treatment.

    22. It is perfectly safe to use with a galvanic device, as it does not contain any ingredients that can harm the skin or body when used on a long term basis (contrary to a lot of products out there that are meant to be used with such devices but do contain chemical preservatives).

    23. Just as an FYI, the Regenisomes in this product can be found on the ingredient listing as “Micrococcus Lysate”, which is an extract from a natural source. (sorry for the nerdiness!)

    24. My Nourisher acts on ALL aspects of aging of the eye area.

    25. It is a great product to offer a friend to introduce him/her to an antiaging skincare line.

    I rest my case!
