Late nights are a given in any season, but during the summertime it becomes even harder to get to bed at a decent hour, even when we have to get up in the morning to go to work. But don’t you worry ladies! I have found two amazing eye creams, that may be a little pricey but are well worth every penny because they will leave you feeling wide awake, younger and refreshed while brightening up your eyes and face.

The Corrective Treatment Eye Cream comes in a 15 mL bottle, which may not seem like a lot but all you need each morning is a dime sized drop so it should last you a little while. Not only does this cream help prevent and reverse signs of aging, but it does amazing things for fatigue. It will restructure your fine lines and wrinkles to look less intense and defined, it will decrease the puffiness from the lack of sleep, and most importantly get rid of the dreaded undereye darkness. Personally, I have extremely dark undereyes so when I don’t get enough sleep, it becomes an even bigger issue, but thankfully since starting to use this I have seen a significant reduction in the purple color under my eyes.

The Instant Radiance Eye Cream does more than wonders for the undereye, it also works for the lid as well! Because, let’s be honest, you can get dark circles on top of your eye just as easily as under it, so having a cream that attacks both areas is ideal. The clinically proven formula can reduce dark circles by 30% within the first 15 minutes of application and if you make this part of your daily routine, can ultimately reduce them by 48%. Aside from attacking the darkness, it will also work to smooth your skin giving it a more youthful look, so this is a great cream for older women to use to fight the signs of aging. 

 
Hopefully at this point we have all learned the importance of sunscreen for our faces, our bodies, and don’t forget the tops of the ears (I always seem to, unfortunately). But what about the delicate skin under and around the eyes? Since most SPF comes with a warning to “avoid eye area”, and we’ve all at some point felt the sting of not heeding to these instructions, our eyes can be left vulnerable to sun damage.
 
Sun spots, redness, and horror of all horrors, wrinkles are all caused by leaving the eye area unprotected. For the fight against crow’s feet, here are five eye creams with SPF (amongst other anti-aging and hydrating properties), that will protect you where you need it most.


Found in the fruit of the marula tree in southern African and parts of West Africa, marula oil has been used for thousands of years for moisturizing, cooking, and even as a leather treatment. Often referred to as a ‘miracle oil’, this beauty elixir is packed with omega fatty acids, Vitamin E, and antioxidants. 

Pure marula oil is similar to the ever popular argan oil which in its pure oil form is an all-in-one product: body, hair, face — you name it, you got it moisturized. Marula oil has made its way into a range of beauty lines being sold in the US, including Clarins, Fiafini, African Botanics, and Marula Pure. Get in on the trend early by shopping these marula-infused beauty picks.

Like most women hovering around age 40, we begin to see noticeable changes in our skin. Whether it’s fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation issues, loss of tone, sun damage or dry skin, it’s a fact that our skin just isn’t the same as it was when we were 20. Accordingly, it makes perfect sense that our skincare regime should evolve as we age — what works for a 20-year-old may not be enough for a 40-year-old. Here are some tips on how to tailor your skincare routine to your age.


Age 20

Sun Protection — The most important thing you can do for your skin at any age is to use sun protection. Any tanning or burning you do now will affect your skin later in life. So while a tan may make you look good for the moment, you’ll regret the sun exposure later in life, I promise you. Stick to sunless tanners and wear SPF 30 or more every single day — yes, even in the winter. Be sure to protect not only your face, but your neck, chest and hands.

Individualized Skincare — Depending on the needs of your skin, use products that address any issues you may face including acne and dry or oily skin. Cleansers, moisturizers, and acne treatments should be part of your daily routine.


Age 30

Continue to use your daily sun protection and acne products if needed. In addition, add the following:

Exfoliate & Cleanse — Choose an exfoliating cleanser or use a cleansing brush to exfoliate regularly. Be sure to use a gentle, non-drying cleanser.

Moisturizer — If you’re not already using a daytime and nighttime moisturizer, start now as skin begins to lose some of its natural moisture.

Eye Cream — Fine lines begin to form in our 30s, so begin adding an anti-aging eye cream to your morning and evening routine.

Anti-Aging Serums/Creams — It’s never too early to start tackling the aging process. Look for products that contain retinoids to improve skin’s texture and tone, and Vitamin C to fight free radicals.

Skin Brighteners — Pregnancy and sun damage can cause melasma, discoloration, or pigmentation issues, so look for a skin brightener if needed.


Age 40

Continue to use your daily sun protection and acne products or skin brighteners if needed, along with your exfoliator and gentle cleanser.

Anti-Aging Moisturizer — Women in their 40s will begin to see a loss of skin tone, increased dryness, and fine lines and/or wrinkles, so an anti-aging moisturizer is essential for day and night. Look for ingredients that build collagen (like peptides and retinoids) and retain moisture (like hyaluronic acid).

Anti-Aging Regime — In addition to moisturizers, anti-aging eye creams and serums are important.


Age 50+

Continue to use your daily sun protection, anti-aging regime, eye creams, and serums, and acne products or skin brighteners if needed, along with your exfoliator and gentle cleanser.

Moisturizers — Dry skin and sagging are our biggest concerns at this age. Avoid any products that tend to dry out skin and keep skin well hydrated day and night. A richer moisturizer and ingredients like hyaluronic acid can help.

Retinoids — Whether as a separate treatment or as an ingredient in moisturizers or serums, a retinoid like retinol will help stimulate collagen and improve skin’s tone and texture to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
