Top 5 Reasons to Say Eye do — My Favorite 5 Eye Creams



One of my beauty obsessions is to NEVER have lines around my eyes. Fortunately at 52 I’m holding on.  It’s probably due to good genes — my died at 68 without a line in sight, and my granny is 97 without a line around her eyes except when she smiles.  And those of course are beautiful lines of life…

At any rate, a reader asked me what to do for puffiness — well that’s one of my main issues. More than likely due to my red wine habit and not enough sleep.  But there are a few other factors that play into as well.  If you do use eye cream at night, be sure not to apply too close to your lash line.  The product does migrate and will block your tear ducts, resulting in morning puffiness.   If you suffer from allergies, try taking an antihistamine before bed, this may help with your puffiness.

Now for my top 5 problems and eye treatments:
