Peter Thomas Roth - Power K Eye Rescue

My high school friend, Gina contacted me about how to get rid of under eye circles. It seems that she was asking me on behalf of her husband. And no woman as attractive as Gina wants a husband that has dark circles under her eyes. She deserves better than that. So, Gina – this is for you. A brief tutorial on under eye circles and what works and what doesn’t.

I will start off by telling you that not all darkness is fixable. Sometimes, it’s skin color or hereditary – and that’s not fixable. Sometimes its diet – too much caffeine can cause darkness or dehydration can be the problem. As with everything in life eating a well balanced diet, drinking lots of water and limiting your intake of caffeine and alcohol will always help. Gina, your handsome husband looks like he could benefit from a product called Peter Thomas Roth “Power K Eye Rescue”.

powerk_eye_rescue_thumbJust read the ingredients in this oh so effective product: vitamin K, Coenzyme Q-10, kojic acid and vitamin C. So without sounding like I am one of my teenagers writing a term paper on the “Power K Eye Rescue”, I’ll give you a brief summary of the effects of these ingredients used topically and then you can determine for yourself if you should try it.

Peter Thomas Roth Power K Eye Rescue combats the underlying cause of darkening. This cream will remove or significantly lessen the appearance of dark circles under your eyes over time, no matter what the cause of your dark under-eye circles. Here’s what makes it work.

Vitamin K - Now, vitamin K is the best vitamin to remove dark circles under your eyes. Vitamin K removes dark circles under your eyes and the puffiness that comes along with it by healing the damaged capillaries and arteries under the skin and helping the blood circulating around the eyes to clot. To boost the results of this cream you can supplement your diet with more food containing Vitamin K. Vitamin K is found in most green leafy vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale and is also found in avocados and kiwi fruit.

Coenzyme Q-10    What can Coenzyme Q-10 do for your skin? It gives you more collagen!  In most people over thirty, levels of Coenzyme Q-10 in the skin are below optimum, resulting in a lesser ability to produce collagen, elastin and other important skin molecules. Coenzyme Q-10 works to boost skin repair and regeneration and reduce free radical damage and it is a very small molecule that can relatively easily penetrate into skin cells. This means that it can actually work.

Kojic Acid was discovered as a natural product derived from a mushroom in Japan in 1989.  It has been successfully used to lighten pigment spots and skin discoloration and considered as an inhibitor for melanin. Kojic acid can eliminate free radicals, strengthen cell activity and lighten your skin.

Vitamin C  - It’s pretty well known that vitamin C increases collagen, removes free radicals from the skin and protects the skin against damage from the sun. But, it’s also potent in removing dark under-eye circles. I recently did a blog about vitamin C and how it can be unstable. You’ll notice on the label of this product that the ingredients are encapsulated in caviar. What that means is that the ingredients are in these little sterile containers that only are opened and exposed to the air as you use it each time – so it’s fresh and it’s stable. VERY UNIQUE and EFFECTIVE. Don’t complain about the price of this eye cream. It’s $100. Chalk that up to hefty ingredients and caviar technology.
