5 Ways to Reduce Signs of Aging

A question about managing wrinkles was posted in It was answered by Fred Cicetti. He said that the common causes of lines and wrinkles include genetic influences, normal ageing, sun exposure and smoke smoking. Fred Cicetti said that people who smoke usually have more lines and wrinkles than nonsmokers of the same age, skin tone and history of sun exposure. Smoking cigarettes causes biochemical changes in our systems that speed up ageing.

Fred Cicetti recommends following the advice from the American Academia of Skin care about decreasing symptoms and signs of aging:

  • Wear sun block every day.
  • Do not tan.
  • Hydrate.
  • Analyze products, even those marked hypo-allergenic.
  • Use products as directed.

In the article, it is also stated that studies suggest that some anti aging lotions contain substances that may reduce the appearance of facial lines. But many of these substances have not gone through medical analysis to confirm this benefit. The American Academia of Skin care says that over-the-counter anti aging lotions does little or nothing to reverse facial lines. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has accepted prescribed tretinoin lotion to cure ageing skin. Moreover, the FDA has also accepted laser treatment for skin treatment.

The Best and Worst Eye Creams of 2012

I've reviewed a lot of eye creams last year, and saw a lot of new products rise and crash in the beauty department. I thought it would be great to look back at the different products that made it to our shelves, and those that made it to the trash.

Here's a list of the top 3, and the worst 3 eye creams we've reviewed for 2012.


3. Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Cream Review 52/100

The name alone sounds very tempting. Fresh black tea sounds like something I would order on a really hot and sweltering day. The problem is, well, it's not just a drink, it's an eye cream. So it needs to be scrutinized further.

This eye cream claims to significantly hydrate the eye area and visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as reduce puffiness. But, that just didn't happen. Yes, it is quite moisturizing, and your skin feels a little better, but it's an eye cream and not just a basic moisturizer. It needs to hydrate our skin more in order to solve eye those fine lines, puffiness, or dark circles.

Point here is, if you're going to spend $65.00, you should get something that actually produces results.

2. Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Eye Cream Review 50/100

Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Eye Cream falls on the cheaper type of eye creams which makes it easy to be tempted to buy it. It's organic, which is also a good thing and doesn't dry out the skin. It got rank as our second worst eye cream for more than a couple of reasons.

First, for something named Wild rose, it just smells terrible! Upon applying it, it takes forever to be absorbed. Also, one thing that seems to be common with most people who try it, it causes break-outs which is something that we should avoid.

What really irks me with this product though, is it contains antioxidant and astringent properties, which they claim protects your eyes. But seriously, don't we even avoid putting astringent near the eye area because of the sensitive skin?

1. Sue Devitt Microquatic Pro Juvenation Reparative Eye Concentrate Review 30/100

So, aside from the fact that it's difficult to say realy quick, five times, why did we rank Sue Devitt Microquatic Pro Juvenation Reparative Eye Concentrate as the worst eye cream in the site? We have several reasons.

First of all, it's a concentrate, and this exudes a lot of expectations from me and all the other women out there. Yes, it is very rich, and you automatically feel it once you apply it on your skin, but as for the promised results? You don't really get them. The concentrate promises to get rid of everything. This goes for fine lines, eye bags and dark circles. You may get rid of one, or none at all, which just isn't enough. If your product can only deal with fine lines, then say so on the fine print.

Second, there are several reports that it causes a stinging feel in the eye area. These reports aren't for the first time users either. Some of them have actually tried to experiment, using one cream for one eye and the Sue Devitt eye concentrate on the other, several times, and still felt the sting time and time again.

Yes, there are some positive reviews out there, but those are from girls who are just looking for a preventive cream. They have no major problems, and just looking for a moisturizer, which isn't what you're paying for per jar.

Last, it's extremely expensive! For a hundred dollars a jar, even those who did love the concentrate weren't willing to buy it again! That says something. It's a waste of money, it's painful, and it doesn't work, which is a solid 30/100 from us.

3. Dr. Brandt No More r3p Eye Cream Review 80/100

We all know that caffeine can get rid of those eye bags. Admit it ladies, you've probly tried placing teabags on your eyes more than once. Well, Dr. Brandt No More r3p Eye Cream captures what we love in caffeine, and what gets rid of what we hate, which is the hassle. We've given it an 80/100 points which is really good, and ranks it at number 3 on our list.

The best thing about this eye cream is that you can use it under your make-up. Yes, it is pretty thick like we said, but, it melts on your skin and gets absorbed by those trouble areas. It works wonders for eye bags and dark circles around the eyes. I like the fact that once you put it on, it feels wonderously moisturizing. Why it doesn't have a perfect score though, it's not really good enough for those fine lines. Also, the packaging can use improvement. It does tend to squirt. Nevertheless, it still is a great cream, and if you're looking to get rid of those bags and dark circles, this is a bottle you just have to pick up.

2. Estee Lauder Time Zone Eye Creme Review 85/100

Estee Lauder has been a trusted brand in the beauty department. This can be a good or bad thing for a brand. See, while it's trusted, people will say that not every product is good. Time Zone Eye Creme though, is just marvelous. First, the jar packaging is great. We don't need to deal with pumps which is a waste of product. next, the formula is semi gel and semi creme, which gives you the moisture of creme, but the soothing feel of a gel. The consistency is awesome and unlike some of the creams out there, it DOES not cause millia. Whew!

I'm not going to claim that this is a miracle cream though, it won't erase your fine lines in an instant. But, stick to it, and you will not be disappointed. It's nourishing, hydrating and absorbs into the skin really well.

Now, the downside, it hasn't really worked for some of the girls out there, so while this is on the top three list, we will listen if there are any negative reactions out there. Comments are still very welcome, and we might just change the list to add in your favorite.

1. Peptides Plus Wrinkle Reverse Creme by Derma E Review 86/100

And finally, we have the best eye cream reviewed for 2012, Peptides Plus Wrinkle Reverse Creme by Derma E. We totally loved it for several reasons, I'm sure most of you will agree.

If you have sensitive skin, this is a must try. Women with sensitive skin have been ecstatic over how it had no negative reactions on their skin, and you can finally focus on the effectivity. It works great for women under 30 and even ladies over 60. The effects are very visible. One of the reasons for this is also the fact that it has no invasive scents, it doesn't stink, but isn't extremely perfumed as well, it just emits a very clean and fresh smell.

Peptide Reverse Creme works especially well for reducing fine lines, but it also does wonders for those dark circles and baggy eyes. And the best part about this product is, compared to the other eye creams on the market with the same results, it's very reasonably priced!

If you're looking for an eye cream to try this 2013, this is definitely included on the list.

Rating: 50/100

Price: $19.64

Buy in Amazon: Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Eye Cream

Weleda is a trusted cosmetics brand which is why women often buy it without question, no matter how much it costs. Their eye cream has made promises that seem too good to be true. Let's check if this cream can live up to what it claims.

Ingredients: Water,Oil of sweet almond or prunus amygdalus dulcis,Jojoba or simmondisa chinensis seed oil,Oil of rosa moschate seed, extract of sedum purpureum, euphrasia officinalis extract, sodium beeswax, peach or prunus persica kernel oil, alcohol, hydrolyzed beeswax,olive or olea europaea oil unsaponifiables, glyceryl stearate se ,xanthan gumanthan gum.

The potent ingredients of this product takes care of the skin around the eyes which is very delicate. Organic oils from Rosehip seed provides the rejuvenating effect. Seems that its definitely an impressive eye cream but lets read more.

Effective for:

  • Reducing puffiness and rejuvenates eyes
  • Softening fine lines
  • Soothing and nourishes tired eyes
  • Preventing signs of aging

With the antioxidant and astringent properties protecting your eyes from the damaging effects of the environment and free radicals, this is an eye cream that makes sense or does it really?


  • No FDA approval
  • Few testimonials by users
  • Price varies according to websites

Directions: Spread a pea-sized amount on the tips of the ring finger. Beginning at the outside of the eye, gently pat the cream under the eye towards the nose, then over the eyelid from the nose outward, following the edge of the bone surrounding the eye.

JEN says: I would not recommend this eye cream even if this contains organic rosehip seed oil and organic orpine and the fact that I love its packaging. If the product cannot credibly and effectively do anything to the eye problem and if this has no clinical approval, its not something I would use myself nor would I recommend.

Rating: 65/100

Price: $84.47

Buy in Amazon: Vie Targeted Care Dark Circles Corrective Cream

This is definitely one expensive product and has been tested clinically more than once but is it enough to say that it would solve any eye problem? Is this the miracle cream we are all waiting for? Read on girls!

Ingredients: water, methylsilanol hydroxyproline asparatate, dicaprylyl carbonate, glycerin, dipropylene glycol, butylene glycol, behenteth-25, zea mays (corn) oil, maris squa, butyropserumum parkii butter extract, cetearyl alcohol, coco-caprylate/caprate, myristyl alcohol, simmondsia chinesis seed oil, dimethicone, purunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, sodium polycarylate, niacinamdide, caprylic/capric triglyceride, phenoxyethanoll, glycine soja (soybean) oil, polyglyceryl-3, disosterate, fraxinus excelsi

Power packed ingredients that act as an anti-oxidants which protects the tissues from aging and keeping the skin firm. It even has essential oil that can ease wrinkle out plus a very subtle fragrance I like.

Effective for:

  • Reducing appearance of dark circles

Its active ingredients act like the chemicals commonly used in most eye cream like retinol which most of us women are familiar with. Extensive clinical trials that was conducted proves that it does live up to its promise. A definite plus that we are all looking for.


  • Needs to be applied twice a day
  • Few testimonials by users

Directions: In the am and pm, gently the cream on your eye contours, smoothing it under the eyes and crow's feet.

JEN says: It is effective but it is far from being the miracle that we are all are waiting for. Another setback would be the price. It's very expensive for something that has limited effectiveness and it has very few customer testimonials. Given all these things in to consideration, it would be worth a try compared to Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Cream.

This is a novelty in all the products that I've reviewed because this one is taken internally rather than applied topically. I'm more curious if this could really do something as an eye cream or treat eye problems
