As a skincare therapist and a facial feature lover. I am a strong believer in preventative skin care. I live in California and the sun can be extremely damaging to skin. And beyond popular belief, it can also be equally as damaging to brown skin like mine. If you are a makeup wearer you know that skin can be put through a lot of cleansing and product applications that can cause irritation, inflammation, swelling, and premature aging.
To beat Father Time to the punch, I have created a great under eye cream cocktail to chase fine lines, dark circles and bags away. This is my personal under eye care cocktail and I’m sure there are a lot of options out there but this is what I have found to work the best for me.
The three products that I use in my Preventive Under Eye are amazing products by themselves. They product great benefits to the skin and can be used as standalone products or added to any skin regime. I chose to add these products together so that I can get the vitamins and ingredients that I need to prevent and treat any signs of aging that my skin experiences.
