SkinCeuticals Newest Eye Cream is a Game Changer

Tag Archives: anti-aging

Woman Eye CreamThe skin around the eyes is one of the first places to show signs of aging. Whether it’s dark circles, crow’s feet, or puffiness, tired-looking eyes can be a nuisance. Fortunately, SkinCeuticals has developed a new and innovative eye cream in the A.G.E. Advanced Eye that can help.

Understanding the Importance of Eye Care

Due to the skin being so thin and fragile, the decline in collagen is much more pronounced than other areas. So, it’s important to have an eye cream that is specifically designed for this delicate area.

Why SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Advanced Eye

The right eye cream can make a noticeable difference in minimizing the signs of aging and fatigue. SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Advanced Eye is unlike a lot of other eye creams in that it doesn’t just contain collagen, it encourages the production of it as well. This helps in visibly minimizing fine lines, promoting an overall more youthful appearance. Aside from this, the cream is also formulated to target puffiness and dark circles which leads to brighter, more revitalized eyes.

As you can see, the SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Advanced Eye is a valuable addition to any skincare routine. To learn more about this or any other SkinCeuticals products, contact the skincare experts at Lisa S. Ball, FNP.


Canadian WildfiresFor much of the summer, smoke from the Canadian Wildfires (and now Hawaiian) has brought air quality concerns into the national spotlight. Aside from the known risks of inhaling wildfire smoke, it can also pose a serious threat to the skin as well.

So how does the smoke from the wildfires affect the skin?

The microscopic particles and pollutants from the smoke land on the skin leading to potential inflammation and damage.

How does the skin damage present itself?  

It can either be premature wrinkling, fine lines, or discoloration.

Is wildfire smoke the only environmental factor to worry about?

No, some others include sunlight, blue light, infrared radiation, air pollution, hot and cold temperatures, and cigarette smoke.

What are some ways to protect the skin from wildfire smoke or any other environmental factor?

  • Limit time outside when the air quality is poor
  • Wear sunscreen as a first line of defense
  • Use an antioxidant like SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic to protect the skin
  • Wash the skin to remove any smoke particles that may cling to it
  • Apply a moisturizer after cleansing to maintain hydration

Even when the wildfires (hopefully) slow down and end, atmospheric aging never takes a day off. Next time you’re out, make sure to consider the health of your skin.

As you may have noticed, hyaluronic acid is a popular ingredient in skincare; and for good reason. It offers a variety of benefits for the skin, especially in regard to anti-aging.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Most abundantly found in the skin, it is also located in the eyes and joints.

What are some of the skincare benefits of hyaluronic acid?

The biggest benefit of hyaluronic acid is the effect it has on the skin’s moisture retention. Because of this, it works as a terrific moisturizer that significantly helps with dryness. In addition to that, it also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What are some recommended skincare products that contain it?

    • PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum – This is one of our favorite skincare products, let alone one that contains hyaluronic acid. It provides instant hydration that penetrates deep into the skin and lasts. It also helps to encourage an increase in the skin’s own hyaluronic acid production.
    • SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel – Another great hydrating product, this serum is perfect for aging skin in need of a smoother complexion.
    • SkinCeuticals Retexturizing Activator – This one is very gentle making it perfect for those with sensitive skin. Helps with the feel and texture of the skin as well.

Which product above is best to use?

That depends on your skin type specifically and what your skincare goals are. Scheduling a complimentary visit with our Esthetician Jamie Popp can help you determine that.

As you can see, hyaluronic acid offers a variety of benefits and should be a part of everyone’s skincare routine. If you want to maintain youthful-looking skin, contact our office today.
