It's All In Your Eyes Best Books for Greening

Whether we are 60 ,70 , 20 or 30 years old what keeps our appearance healthy, vibrant and beautiful is the same. In my January 2008 newsletter. http://www.garden-of-eve.com/newsletters/newsletter-01-11-08.html. I wrote about a broad spectrum of ways to care for our ‘fountain of youth.’ Today my focus is primarily on our skin and the changes that we notice in our appearance that develop over time. Rather than call this aging or mature skin, I prefer to call this ‘skin that is different than it used to be.’ True, with time our appearance changes. However, it does not need to look less vibrant, unhealthy or unattractive.

There are a few simple steps that are effective for maintaining the vitality of our skin. First, let’s consider what we identify as loss of vitality? Wrinkles, dryness, dullness, brown spots, puffiness, broken capillaries, and scars detract from our appearance and are interpreted as aging. The eye area is ‘read’ first and tells the most about us. Care for the eye area can have a significant effect on our look of vitality and the message that we present to the world...and to ourselves.

The skin around the eye area tends to be thin and delicate and is therefore likely to show wrinkles and discoloration easily. As we get older our bodies produce less collagen, thus the skin becomes less supple and resilient. Environmental pollutants and toxins also stress the eye area as does overexposure to the sun.

Toxic products and procedures are not necessary to regain a healthy, vibrant appearance. Natural ingredients have been used effectively for skin care for centuries in Asia, Africa, India, Egypt and the Middle East. Because the skin around the eyes is so thin, it is easily penetrated by the ingredients in skin care products. It is therefore especially important to use eye care products that are made only with safe ingredients.

Wrinkles - Nature’s herbs, roots and flowers can be blended to soften the appearance of wrinkles by alleviating dryness, toning the skin and supporting cell regeneration. Reversing the appearance of aging and enhancing the look of vitality is a specialty of nature’s plants. Drinking at least half your body weight in ounces of water sipped throughout the day as well as avoiding dehydrating foods and beverages such as salt, carbonated drinks, coffee and alcohol will be very effective as well.

Dark circles and puffiness under and around the eye area can be related to digestion, food sensitivities and food allergies as well as seasonal allergies. It is worth identifying what causes and/or increases this response for you. Once food sensitivities are identified it is clear that the symptom won’t disappear without removing the stimulus. There are herbs that support the immune system specifically for sinus and allergy relief. The immune system also responds well to eating and juicing anti-oxidant rich vegetables (green, red and orange.) I can’t say enough good things about the benefits of the raw enzymes that you’ll get with juicing vegetables.

There are herbs that can be safely blended into eye crèmes that support good circulation and often will help disperse the darkness and puffiness under the eyes that has accumulated over time. My Rejuvenating Eye Crème PLUS has worked very well for some people. For the best results a dual approach of food choices and eye crème product is encouraged.

My Rejuvenating Eye Crème is available in 3 formulations – Regular; No Scent; & PLUS. You can view them at:

3 Simple steps to complete skin care

1. Cleanse - A perfect facial cleanse affords deep yet gentle cleansing that soothes and nourishes the skin leaving it feeling clean, balanced, soft and glowing with vibrant health.

2. Tone - A facial toner will add hydration and is the bridge between the facial cleansing and moisturizing in that it better prepares your skin to receive the moisturizer cream. It also helps the jar of moisturizer crème to last longer.

3. Moisturize - The moisturizing properties of a cream consist of its water content (moisture) along with the properties of its other ingredients (plant oils and herbal extracts) that provide nourishment and assist the skin’s cells to maintain their moisture, tone, and support regeneration of healthy cells. A quality moisturizer cream will not clog your pores or create an oily film on your skin. The beneficial properties of the ingredients become part of your skin cells’ health.

Optimal skin care is a simple daily regime. The entire process need not require more than 1-2 minutes. Nature’s herbs and flowers provide high quality nourishment for our skin. Nature doesn’t need the help of harmful synthetic chemicals to be developed into beautiful skin care products.
