Dark Circles best treatment for 2013

Dark Circles


Dark Circles: Let us take a look at what Dark Circles are all about actually, and what causes them to appear right under our eyes. This is going to be highly helpful for the people in case they want to make these Dark Circles disappear, because this will mean that the treatment will be directed right towards the underlying cause of the Dark Circles and so on. The Dark Circles apparently appear on the skin because the eyelid and the skin under the eyelid become extensively thin for the appearance.
Some causes of the thin skin region under the eyelid include:


  • Thin Eyelid Skin: This is the thinnest region in the body and there are several people that have extremely thin skin right under their eyelids and right around the eyes. Now, in many people it is also observed that the thin skin is something which is inherited naturally and so, nothing much can be done in order to get rid of the same. However with time, there have been certain incisions that can claim to get rid of the thin eyelid skin as claimed by the same.
  • Eyelid Blood Vessels and Veins: Each person has got some capillaries and veins in his or her eyelid and beneath it. However, it is seen these being prominent in some of them and this imparts the color of blue or black right under the eyelid. One can clearly see it for oneself; by viewing his face in a room of bright light and the face beneath the eyelids being pulled away very lightly: the blue and red lines which are clearly for the blood vessels. For eyelid to be healthy and alive, it is very important that the blood vessels and veins remain in plenty. However, when the smaller vessels are in a large number, then it will be seen that there is a little bluish color observed at the bottom of the eyes.
  • Pigmentation: Too much or which is referred to as hyper pigmentation of the eyes, is one of the main cause for the eyelids to give an appearance of Dark Circles. Main cause of the hyper pigmentation of the eyes is the excessive exposure of the skin to the sun. Now when we talk about prevention of the same, it comes to the basic steps of sun block, sun glasses and a hat to protect our eyes from the sun.
  • Hollow Eyes: The deep hollow eyes that a person has beneath his eyelid, causes a Dark Circles beneath the eyelid which is called to be as the Dark Circles. This hollow eye space beneath the eyelid is caused due to a deficiency of fat in an inherited state and pattern and hence, the treatment on this Dark Circles and its types requires the surgery. This sort of a hollow eye is much more common and seen in the people in Central Asia and Middle East, however, with people all across the world: problem like these are being expected.

How Can Matrixyl 3000 Get Rid of Wrinkles and Other Signs of Aging?

The science behind Matrixyl 3000 is based on 'Matrikine technology'. In a nutshell and so we don't get too 'scientific' this technology is a revolution in anti-aging because it has the power to reverse the anti-aging process by helping to reduce the fibre fragmentation and support the "reconstruction of the papillary dermal fibre network" Sederma (2011). 


The renowned Matrixyl is a peptide. It is palmitoyl pentapeptide or oligopeptide to be specific. It was manufactured by Sederma and has taken the beauty World by storm. The research behind the product is based on 2 months of ongoing tests and research into its eficacy (how it works). 

Nonetheless, Matrixyl’s effectiveness is unquestionable. It is very effective in stimulating growth of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin that are needed to fill in wrinkles. It works much like vitamin C. In fact, it is a great alternative to natural vitamin C when it comes to topical anti-aging creams. The Matrixyl 3000 has this peptide and palmitoyl tetra peptide. As a result, it offers the benefits of Matrixyl and more such as reversing damages on the glycation process.

This ingredient works mainly on glycation. It is the process where glucose links and binds with proteins. Reduced glycation leads to damages to the collagen, elastin and other proteins in the skin system. The result is wrinkled and saggy skin with uneven tone.

In addition, when someone reaches the age of 36 they usually experience low hormone levels causing a reduced secretion of interleukin, which is good. Interleukin is an inflammatory protein that takes care of the healing process. Overproduction of interleukin is bad. It can slow down tissue regeneration and rigidity. 

This ingredient basically helps achieve the ideal level of interleukin production. In scientific terms and visible changes, the Matrixyl 3000 can tighten skin as it helps revitalize the cells. So as a consequence of using a skin cream or serum with Matrixyl 3000 as an active ingredient you will notice a tighter and supple skin after sustained use.

When Matrixyl was used to grow skin cells, it showed unbelievable results. The amount of collagen in the cells doubled. Plus, it lowered down the interleukenin. A study even included increasing the interleukenin levels by exposing the cells to UV rays. The cells were then treated and the ingredient significantly cut the amount of interleukin by over 70 percent.


Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000 are different ingredients and have different properties. They both help in keeping normal and natural skin processes but they work in different ways. Matrixyl helps in the production of collagen as well as hyaluronic acid and elastin. Its main function is to aid in restoring the skin’s elasticity and density. Matrixyl works mainly on the skin’s outer layer called the dermis.

On the other hand,  Matrixyl 3000 helps inhibit the overproduction of interleukin as well as the damage that it may cause to skin’s glycation. It helps prevent and reverse wrinkles.
It does not mean that one is better than the other. Both are effective and they work differently. In fact, an anti-aging cream that has both is one of the best that you can find these days as these ingredients reinforce each other. Both can work independently but combining the two would make a miracle. When combined, they can stimulate protein remodeling and aid in cell proliferation. 

While there is no point to compare Matrixyl with its successor, you can definitely compare products with Matrixyl 3000 to those that don’t have it. For example, there are anti-aging topical solutions that contain vitamin C, retinol or other ingredients. They vary on how they work but they all claim to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

What makes products with Matrixyl or the 3000 version better is that they do not only reduce the exterior “appearance” they work from within helping to regulate cell activities so the wrinkles are actually reversed. It is not just plumping the skin that surrounds the wrinkles and lines. This ingredient can even be used for treating deep wrinkles that appear hopeless with other anti-aging creams

Ingredients to Avoid in Skin Care

The average adult uses nine personal care products a day, with roughly 120 chemicals spread among them, many of which are incompletely tested for toxicity.


  1. Parabens, ubiquitous in skincare, preserve other ingredients and extend a product’s shelf life–but these antimicrobial chemicals also have hormone-disrupting effects.
  2. Ureas, formally known as diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, or DMDM hydantoin and sodium hydroxymethyl-glycinate, are preservatives that have the potential to release formaldehyde in very small amounts and are a primary cause of contact dermatitis.
  3. 1,4-dioxane, a chemical carcinogen, is created when ingredients are processed with petroleum-derived ethylene oxide. Common ethoxylated compounds include sodium laureth sulfate and polyethylene glycol (often listed as PEG). To avoid it, skip any product with the following ingredients: myreth, oleth, laureth, ceteareth (or any other -eth), PEG, polyethylene, polyethylene glycol, polyoxyethylene, or oxynol.
  4. Petrochemicals are derived from crude oil. Petroleum-based ingredients such as petrolatum, mineral oil, and paraffin (derived from nonrenewable sources) form a barrier when applied to the skin that does not allow it to breathe and can clog pores.
  5. MEA/DEA/TEA are “amines” (ammonia compounds) and can form harmful nitrosamines when they come in contact with nitrates. Used as foaming agents, synthetic stabilizers, and to adjust the pH of cosmetics, they can cause allergic reactions, eye irritation, and dryness of the hair and skin.
  6. Petroleum based Sulfates, such as sodium lauryl are harsh detergents that give cleansers, soaps, and shampoos their latherability.  Sulfates can cause eye irritation and skin rashes.
  7. Chemical sunscreens, such as oxybenzone and octyl methoxycinnamate, have been shown to disrupt endocrine activity. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are safer alternatives.
  8. Quats, such as benzalkonium chloride, steardimonium chloride, cetrimonium bromide, and cetrimonium chloride, give a positive charge to conditioners in order to prevent static. They are necessary for conditioners, but we have allowed only the mildest quats in our Beauty With a Conscience standard: guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, hydroxypropyltrimonium oligosaccharide, and SugaQuats.
  9. Antibacterial compounds, such as triclosan and chlorphenesin, do not break down in the environment and may contribute to bacterial resistance.
  10. Synthetic fragrances containing phthalates (pronounced THAY-lates) – synthetic chemicals have been commonly used to stabilize fragrances and make plastic more pliable. However, studies have shown these endocrine disrupters can mimic hormones and may alter development.  We understand that many customers prefer the complex and rich scents that can only be derived by using synthetic fragrances or natural oil blends.  All of our suppliers are quickly moving to reformulate all synthetic fragrances to be phthalate-free. 
  11. Synthetic colors are made from coal tar. They contain heavy metal salts that may deposit toxins onto the skin, causing skin sensitivity and irritation. Animal studies have shown almost all of them to be carcinogenic. They will be labeled as FD&C or D&C, followed by a color and a number.
  12. Chelators, such as disodium EDTA and tetrasodium EDTA, are used in personal care products to remove impurities from low-quality raw materials. They do not readily biode-grade in the environment.
  13. Animal testing: A grim history of cruelty to animals lies behind many cosmetic ingredients. Which is why we focus on natural – our products do not need testing on animals and we only work with suppliers that do not test their products on animals.

Acne no more !

And remember, acne is normal! Nine out of ten people have it so you're not alone. A combination of hormones, genetics, diet and external factors all contribute to a multitude of acne problems.

1. Water - yes, that worn out five letter word that is instantly thrown atanyone who is suffering with acne. BUT, it's with good reason. Think about your daily water intake, are you really getting your eight glasses a day? (Plus one for luck!). Water flushes out the toxins in your system, cleansing you from the inside out. So try replacing a few of your fizzy drinks with a tall glass of H2O, and try keeping a log to ensure you're getting enough! Make sure your up your intake during the warmer months and try eating more water soluble fruits such as grapes for an addition boost.
2. Sleep - When you sleep, your skin takes this opportunity to heal, renew and rejuvenate. Studies have shown that those who are getting enough sleep (around seven to eight and a half hours per night) can reduce theirstress levels - stress can cause your skin to become dry and dull, causing you to breakout. Remember, it's not called beauty sleep for nothing! A top tip for sleeping is to try to sleep on your back. Sleeping on your back allows gravity to give you a 'natural' face-lift, and means you will not be sleeping with your hair, pillow or quilt rubbing against your face and transferring bacteria. Ideally, you should change your pillowcase once a week.
4. Food - Aim to include food and drink high in antioxidants in your diet. Antioxidants are amazing things that cleanse your system, removing toxins and impurities. So try including some of the following in your diet; strawberries, grapes, pineapple, kiwi, red cabbage, peppers, apricots, soybeans, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds and green tea. Also, look for foods high in vitamin E - a skin-loving nutrient that will aid in improving your skin, for example; sunflower seeds, almonds, spinach, kale, olives, kiwis and tomatoes. Notice how some of those foods fall into both categories? Also, try to avoid over consumption of foods high in fat, these excess fats can cause excess oils which, when excreted through your pores, can cause a buildup of bacteria, resulting in those pesky breakouts. Be sure to wash around your mouth/chin area as well as your hands after eating to remove excess oils and grease from the skin.

5. Moisturize - For a while, I thought that moisturizing was what caused my oily skin. Avoiding moisturizing your skin for that reason though can then cause your skin to dry out. If your skin feels under moisturized, it will start to produce excess sebum, thus resulting in oilier skin and a bacterium build up. Select a moisturizer that is right for your skin type and always look for those that include an SPF (sun protection factor) of at least 15. Remember to change your moisturizer ( we love the I'm Fabulous Bio Identical Hyaluronic Protein Serum) with the seasons, something lighter during summer and thicker during winter to help combat the change in weather.
6. Know your skin type - Knowing your skin type will help you select the right products for your skin. Be it oily, dry, sensitive or a combination, knowing your skin means you will select the right products designed to work with that skin type. Using products for oily skin on dry skin will cause dry skin to become dryer etc, so know before you buy! Even if you don't have sensitive skin, I would always say treat it as if you do,. Avoid harsh chemicals, alcohol based products and go organic if possible.
9. Go Natural - Do you dare to bare? Try having a few make-up free days in the week, allowing your skin to breathe. If you find it impossible to leave the house without any make up on, then make sure you remove it as soon as you get home for the day, and take it off properly. Make up residue left behind on your skin will clog your pores. (As will using dirty make up brushes, so aim to clean them at least twice a week and air dry). Try going natural with some of your products too. There are some great home made remedies you can search for online for face masks, toners and cleansers etc that are made of all natural things found in most kitchens. Not only will these be a treat for your skin, they could also save you money.
7. Using products - I do believe that products can help immensely with skin care, but buying the most expensive product on the shelf does not mean you will get the best results. You have to find the right products for you. Avoid alcohol-based toners and they dry out the skin, and keep exfoliating to once a week for normal skin, twice a week for oily. Treat yourself to face masks, clay based are fantastic for removing deep-rooted impurities. Steam your face to open pores and add a few drops of lemon to turn the steam into a cleanser, which will cleanse deep into the open pores. Try to minimise the amount of lotions and potions you put on your face, and look for multi-purpose products such as balms and salves. Always wash your hands before application of any product, and if you use brushes or sponges, be sure to wash them at least once a week as they can build up quickly with bacteria, grime and dead skin cells.

How to get rid of Blackheads!

Apply the Magic Exfoliating mask for 10 minutes then rub it in circular motion ad rinse your face.

Apply to damp skin with cotton pad, leave for 5 mins.  


What is Cyclopentasiloxane

A non-toxic silicone known for waterproofing and lubricating qualities. Leaves skin silky-smooth and is a great dry skin remedy.



Cyclopentasiloxane is a colorless, odorless, transparent, non-greasy and non-toxic silicone fluid. One of the many types of silicones known for the ability to lubricate and waterproof, water-thin. Cyclopentasiloxane helps spread heavier silicones and is often used in combination with Dimethicone.

A quick-evaporating fluid without greasy residue that leaves skin feeling silky, it is widely used in cosmetic applications as a base fluid and carrying agent.

In beauty products, cyclopentasiloxane is mainly used as a conditioner, delivery agent, lubricant and solvent. Like all other silicones, this ingredient has a unique fluidity that makes it easily spreadable. When applied to the skin and hair, it gives a silky and slippery feeling to the touch and acts a mild water repellent by forming a protective barrier on the skin. 

Its ability to impart a wet and silky look makes it an ideal candidate in hair products, both rinse-off and leave-on ones. It’s particularly useful in hair conditioners because it provides a silky feel without weighing the hair down with greasy residue. 

Because of its water-thin consistency, it helps deliver heavier silicones also contained in a product; and for this reason is often used in conjunction with dimethicone. In fact, as a volatile silicone it quickly evaporates into the air after delivering nutrients to the skin and hair.  You can mostly find this ingredient in products such as foundation, facial moisturizer/lotion, hair dye, shampoo/conditioner, styling gel, anti-frizz treatment, sunscreen, anti-aging treatment and deodorant/antiperspirant.

Silicones such as cyclopentasiloxane do not appear to have adverse effects on the human body, there are many concerns regarding the harmful effects it may have on the environment (i.e. marine life). For this reason, many countries like Canada have requested the silicone industry to provide more information and scientific data regarding its safety. Cyclopentasiloxane may cause mild skin and eye irritation, according to the ingredient’s material safety data sheet, and a small percentage of it reaches systemic circulation through dermal absorption, as found in a study by the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences.

Should I drink Alcohol or Aloe Vera Juice Daily?


Drinking alcohol also causes facial blood vessels to dilate, and repeated overindulgence can cause the vessels to dilate permanently, causing red, spidery veins [source: Freedman]. And if you have a pre-existing skin condition, excessive alcohol use can worsen it. Alcohol consumption may exacerbate flare-ups of rosacea and psoriasis, and dermatologists recommend minimizing your intake to avoid these issues [source:American Academy of Dermatology].
If you drink, moderate alcohol consumption is the best way to avoid any negative side effects. And after a night on the town, water will help to counteract the dehydration that comes with drinking alcohol. Avoid the greasy foods often associated with hangover cures and replace them with healthier, nutrient-rich foods to reverse some of the negative effects of a night out.


Great Benefits of Drinking Aloe Vera Juice Daily

- It stimulates the activity of the intestines. This succulent plant has a positive effect on the functioning of the intestines, allowing you to remove toxins from the body easily and effectively. It also solves the problem of discomfort and pain connected with intestinal problems.
- It promotes healthy digestion The health of the digestive system ensures the absorption of the nutrients contained in the foods we eat in the blood. Aloe vera juice is proved to promote the most efficient absorption of these substances, mainly of proteins, in the intestine.
- It influences intestinal microflora Aloe Vera is able to regulate the work of many organs, and first of all the intestines, promoting normal functioning of bacteria colonies and fungi living in them. These microorganisms often feel imbalance and this natural liquid helps to restore it.
- It has a positive influence on the skin At the moment of their birth, deep inside the epidermis, the skin cells are quite large and full of life. But in 21-28 days (normal skin), rising to the surface, they look pale. They turn into a thin and brittle layer of keratin, which is peeled in the end. Aloe juice contains the vital for the main cells nutrient that keeps the health of the skin and its ability to function effectively and also helps it look so beautiful.
- It increases the fibroblasts activity. Fibroblasts are cells that are located in the skin and participate in the formation of certain fibres, such as collagen and elastin. These fibers give the skin its inherent structure and elasticity. This is fine from a cosmetic point of view, but moreover, the fibers are very important for wounds healing.
- It has anti-virus actionAloe vera leaves are rich in polysaccharide (a long chain of sugar). It is able to protect us from attacks of different viruses, from simple ones that cause common diseases to more complex viruses.
- It has anaesthetic and anti-inflammatory properties Among all the chemicals found in Aloe Vera, there are a few substances with analgesic and anti-inflammatory action, relieving the condition of those who suffer from the pains.
- It’s a source of minerals. The list of minerals, contained in Aloe Vera, includes calcium, sodium, potassium, iron, chromium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc. The fact is that the plant grows in areas where the soil contains large amounts of these minerals, and its roots are able to absorb them and transmit to us in a more accessible form.
- It’s an excellent source of vitamins. This beverage contains a number of different vitamins: A, C, E, folic acid, vitamins of group B, including a certain amount of vitamin B12 which rarely occurs to plants. Many of these vitamins are not stored in the body, and we should regularly receive them from the food that we eat.
