White Tea

Envision the endless images of women reclining with chilled cucumbers resting upon their eyelids. These chilled veggies’ ability to depuff undereye bags has reached mythical proportions. The reality; swelling diminishes slightly due to cold-induced vasoconstriction of swollen blood vessels and reduces fluid buildup. No chemical magic related to the cucumber itself.

However, white tea is rich in EGCG, a powerful botanical renowned for its calming action. Incorporated into an eye balm such as DERMAdoctor Wrinkle Revenge rescue & protect eye balm, white tea quickly helps soothe and depuff delicate undereye tissue. If it is cold you want, keep your jar in the fridge. The chilled cream will work in a manner similar to those cucumber slices without having to take even a moment to "chill" out.

    I use the Photo dynamic liquid and the anti wrinkle lotion. I also use a tinted moisturizer with SPF as my makeup. In what order do I apply them. Thank you and I will be watching on Tuesday!
