Decircling serum really works on those dark circles

Dark circles around the eyes are a physiological issue that demands specific attention. I have documented the main causes of dark circles in the video ‘Eye Treatments: Facts vs Marketing’ and it is one of the few reasons why you should buy a specialized eye product…most eye products are over hyped and over priced and should be over looked….

Reducing inflammation is critical to the success of reducing dark circles. Reducing dark circles requires specific ingredients. The two functions have been wonderfully combined in the Decircling Serum. The essential ingredients are Hydroxysuccinimide, chrysin, hesperidin methyl chalcone and dipeptide-2.

I am a great testimonial for decircling serum because I suffer from many of the causes of the ‘inflammation-dark-circle’ condition…sinus/allergies/sleep problems, and I would look like a raccoon if I did not use the decircling serum 2x a day.

Is the skin around the eyes thin?

Question from a YouTube visitor to the SkinCareTV channel : Doesn’t the skin under the eye wrinkle´╗┐ easily because there are less layers of skin under the eye? This is what I was taught when I worked for Clinique.

Answer: The epidermal and dermal layers are the same and function the same way as other areas of the face. The subcutaneous layer (fat tissue that sits under the dermal layer) is less in the eye area. Under the fat tissue is the muscle tissue. The fat tissue provides a cushioning effect for the dermal layer (where the collagen and elastin fibers reside). Less fat tissue increases the wrinkling potential due to constant muscle movement around the eyes.

The other cause of wrinkling is sun damage – so using a high mineral content sunscreen around the eyes will help reduce the sun damage and therefore potential wrinkling. That is why I totally promote mineral sunscreens – they can be worn right around the eyes because there is no moisturizer included.

My blog will cover the science behind skincare and not the marketing hype that the industry is known for. I have studied chemistry and cosmetic ingredients and thus approach the care of the skin from the angle of what can be ‘realistic’ in terms of the potential for any products to deliver results.

I have created videos that are available for viewing on the SkinCareTV channel of YouTube. They cover all aspects of skin care and skin conditions (Acne, Rosacea, Sensitive Skin, Aging Skin, Sun Damaged Skin) as well as the essential skin care categories of Facial Cleansers, Facial Exfoliators, Antioxidants for the skin, Treatments and Serums for specific skin conditions, Facial Moisturizers, Eye Treatments and Sunscreens.

All of the products at the online shop are from companies that have publicly stated that they do not test on animals. Animal cruelty free skin care is a cornerstone to the beliefs and practices of Andrew Scoular, Blue Turtle Spa and SkinCareTV. A percentage of revenue is donated to
PETA (People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals) – because we believe in cruelty free skin and
body care, and the loving care of all animals,
Physicians Committee For
Responsible Medicine
– because we can have advancements in
health care without cruelty to animals,
Sea Turtle
Restoration Project

– because turtles can live to be 120 years old,
Sea Shepherd
Conservation Society

– because sea animals deserve our protection,

– because hate is a 4-letter word, so let’s
rather teach
tolerance and let everyone live with dignity and respect.
