Elite Neck Cream Works as Firming Neck Cream

The neck & upper chest.  It’s an area of the body that often goes forgotten in many skin care routines.  As you apply lotion to your body, moisturizing every nook and cranny, the neck and chest is often a part of the body that does not get proper attention.  It’s a shame, because the neck area is one that needs to be cared for like all others, as it makes habitual movements and is prone to wrinkling – just like the face.   For this reason, the area of skin known as the decollete can wrinkle and even sag, creating what a lot of people refer to as “turkey neck.”

EliteSkin, makers of fine cosmeceutical products, have released what they call “V-Covery.”  (The use of the letter V refers to the area of skin that forms a V.)  This is an advanced anti aging cream that is applied to the neck and upper chest area. It works to lift, tighten, and firm the skin that is often damaged due to excessive sun exposure.  Exposure to the sun, along with habitual movements, are the two main causes of facial and neck wrinkles.  The skin located on the neck is among the most delicate on the human body.  The only other patch of skin on the body that thins and wrinkles at a much faster rate is the skin directly below the eyes.  For this reason, the eye cream industry is the one that gets all of the attention, as it’s the most sought-after product by most beauty product users.

Elite’s V-Covery addresses many concerns of aging.  “Turkey neck,” which is a not-so-funny term used by many people in the skin care industry to describe the skin’s condition when it sags and hangs off the chin and onto the neck, is a common complaint of people as they age.  This is just one of the many traits that this firming neck cream works to cure.  Also, neck wrinkles are lifted, and made smooth.  The use of cosmeceuticals in the skin care products made by EliteSkin ensure you are getting the most advanced, pharmaceutical-grade anti aging treatment available.  Basically, you are getting something that more or less should be prescribed to you, but does not have to be because the concentrations used in their creams are at a much far lesser level than what would qualify to bear a prescription from a Doctor.

Neck wrinkles, of course, can be greatly reduced in appearance by using a neck cream such as V-Covery, and for that exact complaint, EliteSkin has used it’s powerful peptides once again, this time Matrixyl 3000, which is a copper peptide used in the best wrinkle creams on the market.  Along with that powerful ingredient, you can see Lipocare, as well as EssenSkin in this fine anti aging cream. You see, EliteSkin uses only the finest imported ingredients, you aren’t buying a product at this level just for some simple aloe vera!

EliteSkin’s neck cream has received rave reviews across consumer skin product review websites.  If you are looking for a serious cream to treat your neck and chest, this could be the one for you.

Bad Skin Starts With Your Diet

Healthy skin means you have to treat your skin like you do every other part of your body – with care.  A carefully planned regimen goes a long way to keeping your skin full of moisture, shine, and gloss.  Just like world class athletes watch their bodies very carefully, if you are into your skin, you must be 100% sure that everything you do to it, and surround it with, is healthy for you.

For example, did you know that drinking 2 liters each day of water is a great way to keep healthy, shiny skin?  Just like water drives your bodies engine, it also keeps your skin healthy and glowing, not to mention it also helps fight cellulite.   Drink plenty of water to make sure y0u are taking extra special care of your skin – you can thank me later.  You of course get other benefits, such as benefits to your bodies reaction to other elements, such as the sun, when you drink water.  Drinking water, using sun screen with spf, and using a daily moisturizing cream are three ways you can ensure your skin shines no matter what the season is.

Besides doing those, you also need to balance your stress levels and ensure you are not exposing your skin to deadly and harmful toxins.  This means that you should not smoke cigarettes as well.  Think about all the people you know that smoke, do they have good skin?  Usually they do not.  For starters, the repeated expressions made when one smokes a traditional cigarette causes the skin to wrinkle.  That’s one part of the equation, but the other part is that the awful smoke and deadly toxins given off are harmful to not only your body but also your skin.  Your skin does not react well to smoke, and you should avoid it at all costs.

One piece of advice I can offer if you MUST smoke, is to give electronic cigarettes a try.  These are a rather new thing, and they are NOT 100% healthy, (that’s my disclaimer) because they do contain a trace of nicotine, but they don’t emit smoke like a traditional cigarette does and they don’t come with the bad side effects, such as smelly clothing, a bad aftertaste, and a cloud of smoke that trails around everywhere you go.  For this reason, many long time smokers are making the switch to electronic cigarettes, which are also called e-cigs, electric cigarettes, and smokeless cigarettes.

So, keep good tabs on your diet and what is around your body as we get into 2010.  It’s not bad to make changes slowly, but for your skin’s long term sake, follow these tips to a “t.”  You won’t be disappointment.

Dark Circle Eye Serum is Clinically Tested

As you shop around for an eye cream that aims at getting rid of dark circles, there may be a few that make references to clinical testing.  For starters, it’s important you know what clinical testing actually is.

A clinical test is a rigorously controlled test of a new drug or a new invasive medical device on human subjects; in the United States it is conducted under the direction of the FDA before being made available for general clinical use.

With that definition understood, it’s important to know which products are clinically tested and which just make references to clinical tests that involve ingredients used in their products.  One product I recently saw advertised to get rid of dark circles, aptly called the Dark Circle Serum and made by Wrinkle System, an anti aging skin care brand that markets several targeted skin treatments, is clinically tested to reduce the appearance of dark circles by 35%.  That’s a HUGE improvement, any time you can get numbers in the 10% range, it’s considered highly effective by most parties.  35% is just amazing.

What’s different about this product?  That was the main question I set out to answer as I did some investigative research for this new dark circle cure.  For starters, it uses seaweed extract, which is usually a common ingredient in some of the most luxurious spa’s around the world.  Seaweed extract is a staple in many anti aging masks, acne treatments, and deep peeling procedures.  A natural anti-oxidant, it’s used in this eye serum for those abilities.

The eye serum comes in a medicinal dropper, making it very simple to dispense and apply to the affected area.  In some quick testing, I found this was not only a great dark circle eye serum, but also a great eye serum that has been working wonders on my puffiness.  Puffy eyes are a serious complaint among people that don’t get enough sleep, and I for one living in South Florida don’t always get to bed when I am supposed to. If you look at the Wrinkle System website, they reference clinical studies and the effect the serum has on puffiness.  I was shocked to see it also helps reduce puffy eyes by a clinically tested 31%.  Dang!

So, that’s my 20,000 foot view of this new dark circle treatment.  I would highly suggest this to people who are serious about getting rid of dark circles and puffiness. It’s among the best rated eye creams on some of the most notorious anti aging portals, and being clinically tested is no joke.  It takes years of preparation and perseverance to get an eye cream formula to the point where clinical tests point to it as a leader in the industry.

Eye Cream News Alert

If you are looking for discount eye creams, I suggest you check out the best anti aging eye cream portal on the web, EyeCream.com.  Not only does this website offer a mountain of information that you can apply to your under-eye skin care routine, but it also has a great newsletter that gives away eye creams.

The website also sends out sporadic alerts when some of the most popular eye creams go on sale.  For example, if you subscribe to the eye cream newsletter, you will be among the first to know when your favorite eye cream goes on sale.

Just last month, there was an update about Elite Serum, the popular under-eye serum that has been given many awards online.  The Elite Serum became part of the Age Defying System by EliteSkin, and is being offered for this Holiday season for the low price of $129.  With three products ranging from $79 – $109, this is certainly a great price for an all-around anti aging skin care system of products.

This month, there is a giveaway for the expensive eye cream made by La Prairie.  This eye cream contains caviar, and is known for it’s innovation as well as steep price tag.  You can enter the drawing by submitting your email address.

Eye creams are a great skin rejuvenation product.  Many people do not use an overall solid skin care regimen, but a lot of people are starting to realize that an eye cream is something that should be used by all adults.  An eye cream, when formulated properly, can help against the following signs of aging:

  • dark under eye circles
  • eye bags
  • eye puffiness
  • sun spots and damage
  • eye wrinkles

Of course, a well-formulated eye cream can combat all of those signs of aging, but it’s important that it is used as directed.  Twice per day application is a must with most eye creams.  If you are not using an eye cream, what are you waiting for?

Many Dermatologists urge their patients to use an eye cream, and even at a recent HSBC workshop, employees were told by a hired Doctor to use eye serums!  If big, global companies realize the success of these anti aging skin care products, you certainly should to.

Eye Wrinkle Creams – Do they work?

With so many people looking to cure the various signs of aging, many people turn to specialized anti aging creams.  There are creams for all sorts of different conditions, but there are some creams that are targeted for the eye area. An eye wrinkle cream aims at curing the following:

  • Reduce wrinkle depth around the eyes
  • Add moisture to the skin
  • Promote Collagen renewal
  • Reduce the appearance of crows feet

Of course, there are many advantages of using an eye wrinkle cream, but of course, the obvious reason everyone spends their hard earned money on these products is to look younger.  Looking younger is a constant battle, and it’s never easy.  Of course, there are many anti aging options out there, and with so many cosmetic surgeries proving to be successful, people have many decisions to make as they try to find the proverbial fountain of youth.

Today, we look at eye wrinkle creams as an anti aging solution.  The question I will pose is – do they work?

The short answer, that you probably don’t want to hear, is simple.  It depends!

You can go to your neighborhood corner store and find a cream with a low concentration of ingredients, of course, but that won’t solve any of your aging problems, more than anything it will moisturize your skin and maybe provide one small hint of say hyaluronic acid, a key anti aging ingredient.

The best anti wrinkle creams are formulated with high powered ingredients like Matrixyl 3000. Not the regular version of Matrixyl, but Matrixyl 3000.  This is much more advanced, and you can find all of the research reports online that backs up this statement.

If your eye wrinkle cream does NOT have Matrixyl 3000, you should look for one that does.  Laboratory tests show a significant reduction in wrinkle depth when a wrinkle cream with Matrixyl 3000 is used as directed for a period of time.

Whatever product you end up choosing, stay with the course.  If it says to use it for 30 days, do that to a “T.”  Do not deviate, and be sure you are using the product as directed.  When you try to do your own thing, so to speak, and do something not advised by the manufacturers, you are completely disregarding years of research and development that went into making the product.

The truth is, in eye wrinkle creams, you DO get what you pay for.  Of course, if your product has Matrixyl 3000, you are probably paying a premium (over $75 in most cases), but the alternative is to let wrinkles take over your face and add years to your appearance.

Please be careful when using free trial products, that is the best advice I can give you.  Do your due diligence, and read plenty of eye wrinkle cream reviews.

Resveratrol and Antioxidants Flood Anti Aging Cream Market

Every time I turn around, there is a new anti aging cream using some sort of antioxidant rich ingredient.  Of course, the most popular antioxidants are the ones that are well-covered by the media, such as the famous anti aging superstar, resveratrol.  Resveratrol is best known for helping lab rats live longer and remain stronger in some testing done a few years back.  These same tests were well-covered by media outlets such as Oprah and Dr. Phil.  Of course, resveratrol is no stranger to those of us that follow the health & wellness niche so closely.

So, who started all of this hoopla about the antioxidants and who started using them in anti aging creams at the rate they are being used today?

The first anti aging cream I noticed using antioxidants like resveratrol was the Elite Serum, the flagship product of a company that has taken the cosmeceutical market by storm, Elite Skin.  The Elite Serum uses a trace of resveratrol in its formula along with the acai berry extract to make the scientific formula have an abundance of antioxidants.

It’s important not to overlook the importance of antioxidants in skin care products, especially anti aging products.  People like the famous Dr. Perricone also praise the acai berry in numerous of articles that you can find online.  There is no shortage of information about the scientific elements contained in antioxidants and how they can work to benefit the skin on numerous levels.  You can Google “acai berry” and see all sorts of information from weight loss products to all of a sudden, you guessed it:  acai eye creams.

In all of this hoopla and media praise, there are companies out there trying to sell ANYTHING with resveratrol and acai berry extract in them, and they sort of give a black eye to the people out there who are formulating real, made-to-perform products that are done with care.  I am sure you have received some email spams about the acai berry making outrageous claims, I know I do.  However, don’t let these insane weight loss promises get in the way of you being sold on an amazing product that is really important to our society.

One reason acai extract is so difficult to come by is that you only have 24 hours to harvest it.  The berry can go bad if not harvested properly and in due time.  Upon looking up sources for the acai berry in the USA, I found that the largest importers of acai are located in Miami.  (Probably a coincidence that this is where Elite Skin manufacture their products.)  If you think about it, this makes perfect sense.  The berries are harvested in Brazil, and must be handled with care each step of the way.  A lab in Kansas or even further west does not have a chance to compete with someone with the location near the port of Miami, such as the laboratory of Elite Skin.

There are two things you can do as you shop for skin care products.  You can acknowledge that antioxidants are an important part of the process of having amazing, fresh skin, or you can choose not to believe in science and consider these as hype.  Whatever you choose, you can’t ignore the press that the media is giving to these anti aging superstar ingredients.

Free Skin Analysis Evaluation

Have you ever sought out advice from a professional in the quest to have young-looking, fresh skin?  There are several websites online that offer free skin consultations, but none are better than a site I introduced a few weeks back called Skin Care Opinions.  This website, ran by a woman named Monica, offers skin care product reviews for many of the best anti aging skin care products on the market.  There are in-depth reviews on many products that are for sale both in retail and on the web.  Monica does her best to talk about the product in-depth, and at the end, if she has used the product, she offers her opinion.

It’s a pretty cool concept if you look at it from all angles.  She offers product advice and tips on everything from deep peels, to wrinkle creams, to eye serums.  I read some great anti-wrinkle cream reviews on her site and came to some new discoveries, which is very rare for me as I consider myself a know-it-all!  (he-he.)

Well, the coolest part of this experience is the fact that Monica, who is studying dermatology and works as an understudy to a renowned South Beach skin care expert, offers advice.  That’s right, she offers skin care advice.  If you are looking for an evaluation of your skin, you have found the right website.

Basically, Monica offers an easy to use form, where you can submit a recent photo of your skin.  You can submit skin from any part of your body, and Monica will evaluate it, tell you what she thinks you should do as part of a skin care regimen, and perhaps offer a product suggestion in order to help treat the affected area.

This skin care web 2.0 style site is really cutting edge.  I am very impressed with not only the service, but the layout of the site and the simplicity of the site.  It really is user-friendly and it is like no other site on the web.

So, how did my results go?  Well, I submitted a full facial shot, without any makeup, and had Monica give me a full evaluation.  She told me my skin was well-kept, could tell I am well hydrated, and saw that I am a freak for sunblock.  She did suggest to me a new anti wrinkle cream product that I had never heard of.  I am currently looking into that and as soon as I wait for Monica’s reply, I will post her suggestion here and of course, review it in depth.

This really is a nice website.  Whether you have acne, wrinkles, or other skin issues, you should get a skin care opinion.  It’s 100% free for now, but that may change in the future.

Elite Serum Discount Codes and More!

I’ve done some extensive reporting on anti aging eye serums in my day, and one that I have covered since inception has been the Elite Serum, made by a company called Elite Skin.  This daily use eye serum is an eye serum that has been getting great reviews by people from all different backgrounds, from cosmetic surgeons, to online health portals, to dermatologists, to end-users.  I’ve been a user of the eye serum since I first got my hands on the product earlier this year.  I’ve had a great success personally, and for my money, there is no better eye serum in the world.

So, I’m happy to report in today’s column that I have a discount code for all of you out there who are looking to try the Elite Serum at a cheaper price point.  When you reach checkout, just type in the code “save10” and you will save $10 off your order.  This code does not have a time table that I know of, so if it expires after some point in time please don’t blame me.  I just thought I would pass that on as many people are on a slim budget these days, myself included.  It’s never easy in this economy to make room for anti aging eye serums and similar products, but discount codes go a long way to helping the cause.

I also have a link to a page that has extensive discount codes for other products.  It’s the largest database of eye creams, eye gel, and eye serums online.  Some products have discount codes, while others don’t.  But, to check it out, as well as read some in depth, professionally written reviews by both the editors and the consumers, go ahead and visit the link above.

Eye serums have been a popular addition to people’s skin care regimen since about 2005.  Many companies put in extensive time in the R & D stages of their company to prepare for what we call in the United States the “baby boomers.”  This essentially means that companies are beefing up their inventory and materials in order to service the many people who are turning older this year and starting to realize the many symptoms of aging that are starting to show on their faces, necks, and other parts of their body.

Most men don’t typically believe in eye serums and other anti aging products, but they are becoming more aware of the need to use such products.  I’ve spoke to men who are in dire straits trying to get rid of the dark circles under their eyes, yet they dont’ know where to start!  I find it amazing that men can be so clueless about these types of things.  The product they need is right in front of them!  As I was saying, most people just started adding an eye serum to their daily routine.  If you care about the way your eyes appear each and every day as you walk out your front door, you should too.  An eye serum should be a staple in the skin care regimen of anyone age thirty or over.

A-B-C And More ..

Your skin is your most valuable asset. Bereft of all make up and accessories, there is just your skin to tell the world how beautiful are you.

Therefore it is essential that you take good care of your skin, nourish it and pamper it…

Here are some basic rules of good skin care, or so to say the A-B-C of skin care.

A: Cleansing!

Morning and night, make sure you cleanse your face. Pour out some cleanser on your palms and massage on to your face in circular motions. Don’t be hard on your skin. Cleansing is a soft and smooth process. Do it the same way.
Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel deep cleanses the face and leaves you with oily and normal skin all fresh and clean.

B: Toning

Cleansing should immediately be followed by application of a good toner. Most often women undermine the importance of toning up their face and move on with their make-up. Actually cleansing opens up the skin pores to remove all dirt and bacteria and remove open till a toner is applied.
A toner adjusts the pH level of your skin to normal in addition to removing any stubborn leftovers. Use a cotton ball to apply the toner in an upward motion. Try using Obagi Nu-Derm Toner that contains natural ingredients and herbs that hydrates your skin and restores the normal pH level.

C: Moisturizing

Moisturize your face and neck after you are done with the cleansing and toning process. Apply in upward motions and make sure your cover every nook and corner of your face. The skin on your face… especially around the eyes is very thin and delicate. So be slow and steady while running your fingertips.

That’s as much for the basics. But in the changing world today… you need to take care of your skin as it survives through pollution, heat and dust, weather changes and all.


In due course of the day, your skin accumulates dirt and bacteria. And this causes acne, whiteheads and blackheads to appear on your face. The cleansing-toning-moisturizing is a gentle one and removes inlay dirt particles. But for harder stuff like blackheads, you need to scrub your skin at least once a week so as to scrape off all the debris.


Contrary to popular belief, a sunscreen isn’t something to be used if and when you go out in the sun. In fact, the UVA/B radiations of the sunlight are active all day long and traverse all through. Thus, it is necessary that you apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before you go outdoors and reapply every 2 to 3 hours!

4th of July Skin Care Tips

You WILL most likely be outdoors on the 4th of July.  It’s an American tradition.  For those of you located outside of the USA, the 4th of July is the Independance Day in the United States of America.  It’s the day everyone gathers with family and friends and celebrates the nation’s day of Independance.  Many outdoor gatherings take place.  From bar-b-ques to picnics, to lawn darts to volleyball, people get together and have a great time outdoors.  Here are some skin care tips you can follow for this day of Independance.

Use plenty of sunblock.  Wear your Panama Jack sunblock if you still have some of that lying around.  Remember when that was the most popular sunblock on the planet?  Whatever happened to it?  Anyways, that’s not important right now.  What is important is that you cover your face with sunblock, your body with sunblock, and your neck and chest with sunblock.  The sun causes wrinkles, and wrinkles are something you can NEVER reverse in life.  A wrinkle, much like they say about diamonds, is forever.  If you expose yourself to the sun, odds are you will wrinkle earlier than someone who does not expose theirselves to the sun as often.  If you do one thing this fourth of July, cover your body head to toe with sunblock.  You can thank me years later.

Another way you can prevent wrinkles is to cover your face and eyes from the sun.  This can be done by using a hat and sunglasses.  These not only can be a stylish part of your wardrobe, but they can also be a part of your skin care routine.  Think about it this way:  When you squint, you help wrinkles establish themselves on your skin.  When wrinkles establish themselves on your skin, they do NOT just jump out and go away.  They are there forever, whether you like it or not.  Of course, you can reduce their appearance with a wrinkle cream, but that is simply a cover up, and over time, the cost of wrinkle creams will hit your pocket book.  So, keep in mind these things.  Remember that a hat and sunglasses combination will keep you from squinting, and in turn, prevent wrinkles from forming because you will not be making those constant, habitual expressions.

Since you will most likely be basking in the sun the majority of the 4th of July Holiday, chances are you will be drinking a few cold beers if you are over the age of 21.  This means you will not only have the chance of being intoxicated, but you could also become dehydrated.  This is something you want to avoid at all costs.  This in mind, you need to hydrate your body with as much water as possible. If you can, drink a glass of water between every two cocktails.  Yes, you may find yourself using the restroom quite a bit, but this is much better than the alternatives.

Have a safe and healthy fourth of July Holiday, and remember to keep the aforementioned skin care tips in mind.
