There may not be a fountain of youth but that doesn’t mean I have to completely succumb to the effects of aging. Eating well, hydrating, taking proper precautions in the sun, washing, and moisturizing–these are the basic elements to retaining skin with a youthful glow, and I’m sticking to the routine.
While I haven’t exactly found myself with a crowd of crows feet around my eyes and lips quite yet, I’m starting early with the preventive measures in terms of the type of products I use. Most recently, I’ve discovered an extra special treat with Patchology Energizing Eye Patches. I’ve tried eye creams, normal under-eye soothers–all aimed to tighten the sensitive skin around your peepers and de-puff bothersome bags and such. But the effects are almost always short lived because the topical ointments can only go so far. Patchology uses the power of a micro-current to penetrate the skin’s deepest layers so that the tightening, de-puffing, and brightening lasts long term. That’s right–there’s a mini battery in those patches. Think of them as a twenty-minute recharge boost for when you’re looking a bit tired. The cooling activating gel that goes on before the patch is an extra bonus because frankly, it feels straight amazing. The pretty $75 package comes with twelve patches, which can be used up to four times each. Not a bad deal when you know the price of a single Galvanic treatment, which more or less strives to serve the same purpose as the patches.
