DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS SECRET ASSASSIN?!...
I was unaware that Vitamin E was so beneficial for your skin. I have heard about its many benefits in regards to overall health and wellness, but I didn't know much about it being beneficial for skin too. As it destroys free radicals throughout the body, it can also prevent this free radical damage to the skin. Antioxidants work hard on skin and body cells, neutralizing these destructive radicals!
Now...we get to the good part of the story, about what it can really do for your skin! Besides the awesomeness of fighting off free radicals, Vitamin E will actually prevent the signs of aging, repair damage to skin, and there have been studies recently that have lead to promising research in reducing skin cancer risks as well! If put into an oil form for example, the supplement can be a fantastic moisturizer as well.
There has been recent research indicating too, that cellular regeneration of your skin may be sped up, which in turn leads to the healing of scars and acne. This would be similar results to more drastic and costly measures such as microdermabrasion or using a less-costly, but possibly damaging derma-roller technology. I myself have not tried microdermabrasion although I have some close friends that have and they advised although it does seem to work, you have to go in for multiple treatments that never end- and they are super expensive!
As for the derma-roller method, I've given that a try more than once, and I did see a slight improvement; however I felt some pain too! :/ It's not super hurtful while applying, but for me it feels like a fairly decent sunburn on my skin for the next few days after using the tool. You will get results, but you may be able to achieve them just as easily by adding something simple like Vitamin E.
When looking at how you can achieve sufficient amounts of Vitamin E, this can be done in a variety of ways. The best and probably the most obvious would be through the foods that you consume and these include things like: vegetable oils, seeds, nuts, and green veggies! Supplements can be a good source of the vitamin as well in addition to application topically; this can be made into a cream, lotion, or oil for application.
After all of this research, I had the idea that I should give this supplement a second look when it comes to my skin care! I started searching for a good product that would either be a supplement (like in pill or capsule form) or even a topical application. I ran across something that was unique and different with a new approach to solving under eye skin issues and thought it would be nice to share my verdict on it too :)
viicode- oxygen eye mask $60*
*Amazon.com pricing + Prime!
I had never tried an overnight eye patch before, so I jumped at the opportunity when it arose recently with VIICode's - pro-nounced > [vi:] [tu] [kəʊd] , mask product. Now I will start off by saying that is definitely more than I might usually pay for a similar product, if I chose to buy. However, I would also be quite willing to spend the extra $$$ if it means that the product is effective and made with a top-notch quality. All that being said, this product is a really nice product and I really liked it overall.
To start off with, it was easy to get the first pack of gel eye masks out of the individual sealed packed with no problems. Each one comes in a slender, separate throwaway container that keeps the product fresh until you are ready to use. There is a thin layer of clear material attached to the sticky undersides of each patch that must be removed. These allow for the patches to stick to your under eye areas.
The backing peeled off with ease and I placed each patch underneath the eye, light pressed down on each as per the included instructions, and allowed the patches to settle in. I ended up going to bed with them on and taking them off in the morning as the instructions advised. I could tell before even taking the patches off, that they jelly-feeling like material that was in between the fabric-like patch and my skin was not completely absorbed into my skin.
I slowly peeled off each patch and had to do it carefully so as to tug at the delicate under eye skin. I could immediately see the difference after the first usage with the patches- there was a smoothness and softness that I hadn't really seen before right under my eye area. There had also been an improvement on brightening and evening of skin tone and those things improved with each further treatment with the patches that I had.
The product did feel slightly "heavy" while I had it on, but not so much of a both since the majority of that time I spent asleep. I would make sure though that you definitely stick with these as something you go to bed with and not spend all day awake with on, as you might find it slightly cumbersome in a way. Make sure not to get too close to your eyes either as when you even so slight press on the patches after application, you may see a tiny bit of gel "seep" out on some areas. I really on noticed this on if I seemed to push down a little too much or too hard on the patches, but found that it was easy to do and was best to not get too close to my eyes- if it did happen then I could avoid getting the product in my eyes directly.
After about the 3rd day was when I really started to see the most improvement around my eye area after using the VIICode product. I noticed a difference even in some softening of the lines underneath my eyes, evenness in tone and texture, and more smoothness. They also didn't look near as tires as they normally can! There are six total treatments for each eye so you will get an entire treatment, although the site does recommend a full 3 boxes in order to be considered a complete treatment plan.
My final verdict: something to definitely consider and very effective- you WILL see results...BUT be prepared to spend some $$$ with a start-up cost of around $60 and if a completed treatment plan is considered, you are looking at $180 total. This could be out of many people's reach, so I might consider this product to more of a skin care splurge. As the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for."- you really do with this VIICode Oxygen Eye Mask! :)
