Anti-Aging Tips for Eyes

There’s just something about the eyes that makes them one of the most appealing parts of the human body. Eyes are expressive. They can show laughter, love, poignancy and desire. They’re the first thing we look at when we want to know how someone is feeling – and what’s on his or her mind.

The Science Behind Eye Creams: New Ingredients, New Promises

Ask any woman (and quite a few men) what their most troublesome aging area is, and they’ll probably say, “the eyes!” That’s because the skin underneath the eyes has very few oil glands, so it’s more prone to wrinkling.
