Your Eyes and Lips Reveal Your Age to the World – Soothe Away Tell-Tale Signs for a Fresher, More Beautiful You


… The days you struggled to get everything done.

… The nights you stayed up way too late – tending to a sick child or sharing a couple of drinks with a friend.

… The years of toil, pleasure and indulgence – sometimes at the expense of your body.

Dark circles under eyes, wrinkles and lines first appear around your eyes and lips. Why there? Not only are they the most delicate and sensitive areas of your face, your eyes and lips get a pretty constant workout.

They're also the areas most prone to the drying effects of weather and sun exposure. Free radical damage from smoking, stress, environmental pollution, excessive exercise and poor diet wreak havoc on your fragile skin tissue. With each increasing year, your skin undergoes changes in structure and function, making it more difficult to maintain a beautiful appearance.

These changes are subtle. You hardly notice… until the day you catch a glimpse of that first – or second – wrinkle in the mirror.

But here's the truth… There's much you can do to maintain a healthy appearance. You don't have to look older than your age. In fact, you can look even more beautiful if you're willing to give your skin, particularly those delicate areas around your eyes and lips, the attention it craves.

Introducing… Organic Renewing Eye and Lines Treatment for Youthful, Smooth Skin

You've asked for an effective solution for reducing the appearance of fine lines. After many months of testing and formulating, I'm pleased to bring you a treatment made from pure, natural ingredients that delivers exceptional results. And equally important, it's USDA certified organic!

My organic formula firms and plumps delicate tissue around your eyes and lips, helping soften fine lines, while reducing sags, puffiness and dark circles.

Renewing Eye and Lines Treatment provides deeply penetrating moisturizers and powerful antioxidants to fight free radical damage.

After applying my Organic Moisturizing Daily Face Lotion or Overnight Face Cream, apply a pea-sized amount of Renewing Eye and Lines Treatment to fingertips and gently massage in a circular motion into areas requiring extra attention, such as around your eyes and mouth.

Containing carefully selected organic botanicals to provide antioxidant support to your skin cells, Renewing Eye and Lines Treatment provides the daily nourishment needed to help beautify and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin.

Luxuriously rich and non-greasy, Renewing Eye and Lines Treatment pampers those delicate areas of your face, while not irritating eyes. You'll feel and see the difference and discover improved elasticity, tone and firmness of your skin as the appearance of fine lines, bags and unsightly "crow's feet" soften and fade away.

We've Chosen Only the Finest Natural Botanicals From Around the Globe

From the far corners of the world, we've gathered some of the finest, organic botanicals to provide exceptional nourishment and hydration for dry and damaged skin.

You won't find, finer ingredients than those we've selected for our Renewing Eye and Lines Treatment. Natural botanicals such as…

How Does Aging Affect Your Skin?

Your skin is made up of three layers – the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. The top layer – or the epidermis – is where all-important cell renewal takes place. In younger skin, cells divide and replace themselves every 15 to 30 days. With age, these cells divide more slowly – perhaps twice as long – making your skin less able to repair itself quickly. The total number of epidermal cells decreases by 10 percent each decade of life.

These top moisture-protective cells begin to lose some of their "stickiness," releasing moisture instead of preserving moisture in your skin. The result is thinner looking and drier skin. Nowhere is this more noticeable than with the fragile skin under your eyes.

The dermal, or second layer, also thins as you age and produces less collagen – the natural protein that keeps your skin looking smooth and firm. Essential for skin strength and elasticity, a loss in collagen causes your skin to lose its suppleness and begin to crease and sag.

Once active sebaceous glands now produce less skin-lubricating sebum and the number of sweat glands decrease. Both of these changes lead to skin dryness and the formation of fine lines.

Finally, the third and bottom layer of your skin – the hypodermis or subcutaneous layer – contains fatty tissue that cushions the layers above it. As fat cells shrink with age, these less "plumped" cells can no longer "fill in" damaged upper layers of skin. As a result, skin sags and creases.

It's Not Only Aging That Causes Wrinkles and Lines Around Your Eyes and Lips

Unprotected overexposure to ultraviolet light from the sun accounts for 90 percent of symptoms of premature skin aging.

Sun overexposure damages the moisture barrier in the epidermis. In the dermis layer, sunlight damages collagen fibers and leads to the accumulation of abnormal elastin which can cause fine lines, wrinkles and even dark circles.

If you're a regular reader of Mercola.com, you know how passionate I am about natural sunlight exposure. It's critical for ensuring adequate vitamin D production for good health. But at the same time, it's important to protect delicate tissues – especially areas around your eyes and lips – from excessive sun exposure.

Ultraviolet light from the sun comes in two main wavelengths: UVA and UVB. UVB is what you want for healthy vitamin D production. UVA, the deeper penetrating ray, is the culprit behind photoaging and wrinkles. And the latest research reveals the ideal time to catch those healthy UVB rays is right around noon, when they best penetrate the atmosphere.

When selecting a safe sunscreen to protect the delicate areas of your face, be sure to select one that protects against damaging UVA rays. Two of the more non-toxic ingredients that offer safe protection are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, minerals used worldwide for over 75 years.

In fact, I've chosen them to form the base of my Sunscreen. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are only safe when micronized. Be sure that they are not nano-sized.

There's another cause behind wrinkle formation other than sun exposure – and it's one you might not expect.

Strenuous Exercise Can Bring on Early Wrinkles

I learned about this one the hard way, back in the late 1960s when I started exercising vigorously. My skin suffered oxidative damage simply because I underestimated the immense destructive power free radicals can have on your body.

Here's a short primer on free radicals and how they affect your skin. Free radicals are unstable oxygen molecules that have only one electron instead of two. In their search for a second electron, free radical molecules strip electrons from other molecules, thus creating more molecules that are unstable. This process continues to repeat itself, causing oxidative damage that affects cell function and alters genetic material.

Free radical damage causes wrinkles by activating the matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) – enzymes that chop up the connective tissue forming collagen.

Excessive cardiovascular aerobic type activity, such as marathon running, has the ability to cause oxidative damage and premature wrinkles if antioxidant levels are not high enough in your body. Protect your skin from the damaging effects of vigorous exercise by taking a high quality antioxidant.

Smoking, Stress and Diet… Potent Causes of Wrinkles from Oxidative Damage

Three other conditions can also initiate this cascading process of damaging free radical formation:

  • Smoking and Cigarette Smoke
  • Stress
  • Diet

If you know someone who has smoked for a long time, you'll probably recognize the hallmark of smoking – "crow's feet" skin wrinkling. This is likely due to the oxidative damage caused from cigarette smoke. Smoking disrupts your body's natural process of breaking down old skin and renewing it.

Remember those MMPs (matrix metalloproteinases) – those collagen-destroying enzymes activated by free radicals? Skin cells exposed to cigarette smoke produce far more MMPs than normal skin cells. Further, smoke causes a drop in the production of new collagen by up to 40 percent.

This combined effect of breaking down collagen more rapidly and producing less new collagen can cause premature skin aging in smokers (and those exposed to heavy cigarette smoke). In fact, smokers are three times more likely to develop deep wrinkles than are nonsmokers.

The free radicals generated by cigarette smoke also accelerate the aging process by damaging the microcapillaries in your skin. This disrupts your skin's ability to absorb nutrients, accelerating wrinkling and lines of aging.

Want to Look More Beautiful? Deal With Your Stress

It's no secret that stress wears you down, both inside and outside of your body. And it shows up on your face, especially in the form of lines and wrinkles. Scientific studies reveal that extended exposure to psychological stress can speed up the aging process of your cells and cause them to die at a faster rate.

Stress appears to decrease your skin's ability to function properly and repair tissue. Your skin's recovery seems to be directly linked to stress levels – stressful events and even stressful thoughts are associated with the decreased ability of your skin to function normally.

A study involving 200 pairs of identical twins discovered that life experiences, rather than genes, create your physical appearance as you age. People who had been through the stress of divorce looked nearly two years older than their married, single or even widowed twin. Those who used antidepressants also appeared significantly older.

Your body's ability to adapt to both internal and external stress is important not just for good health, but also for slowing your physical signs of aging. Effectively dealing with your stress and maintaining a positive outlook on life are two straightforward solutions to preventing premature aging from stress, and enjoying an invigorating appearance.

How to Boost Your Body's Ability to Handle Stress:

  1. Consider using Meridian Tapping Technique (MTT). MTT releases negative emotions by targeting the disrupted energy meridian systems causing the stress. This simple do-it-yourself acupressure technique balances your energy and eliminates your body and mind's stress response.
  2. Physical activity is a great way to relieve tension and neutralize the physical consequences of stress. Exercise releases endorphins in your brain, bringing your body pleasurable relaxation and rejuvenation. Just be sure not to overdo the exercise and do excessive aerobic/cardio.
  3. Get enough sleep at night. Sleep allows your body and mind to repair and revitalize cells and to process stressful events. Routinely catching only a few hours of sleep can alter your metabolism and hormone production mimicking the effects of aging and pre-diabetes.

Eating the Right Foods Can Help Rejuvenate Your Skin

In an international study of eating patterns, investigators found that dark- and fair-skinned people who consumed diets of healthy whole foods were able to better control their wrinkles.

Even when age and smoking were factored in – conditions linked to skin aging – diet still played a role in helping to prevent wrinkling of sun-exposed skin.

The study authors speculate that certain foods offer superior skin protection due to their high levels of antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E.

The skin, they note, is a "major target of oxidative stress."

Monounsaturated fats such as olive oil may offer similar protection. Fatty acids are present in your skin, and monounsaturated fats resist oxidative damage.

Omega-3 fatty acids help normalize skin lipids and dehydration in your cells. Omega-3s help maintain the structure and moisture content of skin cells, which minimizes the appearance of fine lines.

Here are just a few of the healthiest foods for promoting a beautiful appearance:

  • Organic green leafy vegetables
  • Dried and fresh beans and legumes
  • Walnuts, almonds, pecans and seeds
  • Olive oil, coconut oil and Krill oil
  • Wild-caught, mercury-free salmon

Getting Rid of Dark Circles, Bags and Morning Puffiness

Dark circles and bags under your eyes can be caused by a number of conditions:

  • Heredity – dark under-eye circles sometimes run in families
  • Lifestyle factors – smoking, drinking alcohol and caffeinated sodas
  • Sinus congestion – dilates and darkens the veins draining your eyes
  • Sun overexposure – causes your body to produce more melanin skin pigment
  • Aging – thinning skin and loss of fat and collagen which emphasizes the reddish-blue blood vessels under your eyes
  • Certain allergies (usually food related) can result in the appearance of dark circles under your eyes

If occasional puffiness beneath your eyes is a result of too little sleep, poor diet or excessive alcohol, manual lymphatic drainage massage may help remove built-up toxins. Drinking plenty of pure, filtered water helps to replenish lost moisture and purge released toxins.

Here's how to do manual lymphatic drainage massage:

  • Start at the inner corners of each eye and work out towards your temples.
  • Using your ring fingers, press firmly but gently for the count of three at small steps along your eye sockets.
  • Continue until you reach the "dip" just to the outside of your eye socket. (This is where the toxins you have massaged from the under-eye area release into your bloodstream.)

A high-quality, topical, hydrating and skin-strengthening eye treatment product may help control puffiness and lessen the appearance of dark circles. You can help restore a fresher-looking, younger appearance, especially around your eyes and lips.

A Beautiful Appearance Requires Exceptional Skin Nourishment

There's much you can do to maintain a beautiful appearance. Looking great without the lines and bags demands a multi-faceted approach:

  • Eat fresh, antioxidant-rich and organic whole foods (locally grown when available).
  • Eliminate damaged omega-6 fats from your diet and make sure you use plenty of high quality omega-3 fats in your diet.
  • Protect your skin from the damaging effects of UVA rays.
  • Don't smoke and avoid cigarette smoke.
  • Treat delicate areas with pure high-antioxidant botanicals to restore lost moisture strengthen and rejuvenate tissues.

Beware of Cheap Generic Ingredients in Skin Care Products – Especially Those You Can't Pronounce!

I'm sure you wouldn't want to use anything on your face that would be harmful or potentially toxic, right? After all, what goes on your skin ends up in your bloodstream and throughout your body.

Selecting a healthy skin care product can be a chore. Distinguishing healthy ingredients from potentially harmful ones – especially if they're labeled "organic" – is particularly challenging. When it comes to face care products, "organic" is likely the No. 1 most abused word.

Your only reassurance of a healthy product is selecting one made of natural, pure ingredients that you recognize and trust. And selecting one certified as 100 percent organic to meet the USDA organic standards assures you of the way the plant is grown and processed.

You know it's the real deal. Unless you see the bold green "USDA Organic" seal, "organic" doesn't mean anything!
