Second step? Yes, I am here to fully justify your expensive sunglasses. You will rarely find me outside without a honkin' set on (seriously, next step up would be full on ski goggles!) Besides protecting the eye area from sun damage, they also prevent you from squinting & frowning in the light, thus less muscle memory wrinkles. Woo hoo! Trust me, start early on your peepers & you'll be happy you did! Wink. Wink.

Though we have an amazing medical director, Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael Cohen- who yes is a genius with a scalpel, my initial approach has always been a little bit more conservative. By no means does that mean I am not aggressive & results oriented, but I always stress prevention is easier than correction. This my beauties brings us to eye creams & yes you must! I've been using eye creams since I was 18 & it's made a huge difference. The eye area is the first place we show aging. Why? The tissue around the eye is very thin, think single ply toilet paper. There are also no oil glands in that area, so the skin needs supplemental moisture. Twice a day you need to be applying your eye product gently with your ring or pinky finger(they're the weakest). Yes eye creams are pricey, but no you cannot use your face cream on your eye area (as the eye is easily irritated). The good news? You need very little product, so your potion can last easily six months.
