Your eyes are your window to your soul…Dr Gram’s way of keeping them clean.

As we age it seems like it hits the eyes the hardest.  The most common evidence of this is the development of dark circles underneath the eyes, puffy under-eye skin, and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles also known as crow’s feet.

Ways that you can control to counteract the aging of the eyes is to get more sleep, relieve stress, and cease unhealthy behaviors such as smoking and or excessively drinking alcohol and if you are a sun god or goddess try to cut that down and use sunscreen.   Now unfortunately there is Mother Nature our genetic makeup that can also help us with the aging of our eyes.   For example, if you have a family history of these conditions, and or are having congestion problems, you can also develop dark circles, puffy eyes, and fine lines and wrinkles.

While some plastic surgeons and dermatologists suggest injection therapy to combat these problems, a vast majority of consumers prefer to use topical, over-the-counter solutions.

Cosmetics have advanced significantly in the last decade and Under-Eyes serums are no exception.  Dr. Gram’s ongoing research in the area of ingredients that help keep the eyes looking younger has given birth to GRAM Skincare Eye Rescue.  Thorough clinical testing has resulted in this formula that is extremely powerful and safe.

Dr. Gram has produced an effective product to reduce fine lines and wrinkle, decrease the puffiness and dark circles that haunt you and help with discoloration of the skin.  The best part is that he has made it cost effective for everyone!  Go to GRAM Skincare’s website and purchase today and enter the code FB25 to receive 25% off your order!

Eye Care, Should You?

The number one dermal issue I’m asked to help solve is how to properly care for the skin around eyes so as to avoid fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. And it’s no wonder why this is such a hot topic – this problem area can age us far beyond our years!  In order to create a skin care routine as well as identify ingredients that will address the problem, one must understand what actually causes these eye conditions. To give you a better understanding of how I approach eye care, this blog will be touch on both the pharmaceutical side and skin maintenance.

As I said before, to address the problem you must identify its source. Some are a quick fix and others require a little more effort, but it’s worth the energy if it’s going to take years off of those eyes.  Here are the most common culprits and a few tips on how to care for them.

Allergies – Could the issue be related to an allergy? If you think this may be the driving force, enlist the help of your physician to ID the allergen. Next, consult your physician or pharmacist on which OTC antihistamine to take and how to use it properly.

Multi-Vitamins - Most people are deficient in B12 and folic acid due to poor dietary choices. Supplement your diet with a daily multi-vitamin.

Sleep Deprivation – Simple! Get some sleep.

Eye Rubbing - Rubbing the delicate skin around the eye can irritate the skin and break tiny capillaries, causing both puffiness and discoloration.  TIP: When applying products or drying the skin around your eyes pat and dab NEVER rub.

Heredity – You can’t change your DNA but you can help it by using the right products and techniques for your skin type. See below…

SKIN1 by Dr Gram TM Eye Rescue is specifically designed with a unique blend of ingredients to revitalize the skin around the eyes and decrease puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. Here are the key ingredients and how they get the job done:

Rutin – Eye Rescue is the first skin care product to utilize Rutin, a powerful antioxidant that stabilizes Vitamin C, strengthens capillaries and collagen elastin, and chelates metals from the skin to dramatically reduce dark circles and puffiness. By reproducing stem cells from Buckwheat, the most powerful source of Rutin, I’ve created a natural version that doesn’t oxidize, the reason why it has never been used.

Vitamin K – This ingredient is a vaso-constrictor that contracts capillaries to push the blood out so the dark circles disappear.

Nutra-Vit Complex – The signature Nutra-VÎt ComplexTM works synergistically with botanical extracts to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and decrease discoloration. It is also a super antioxidant that aids in the skin’s natural recovery from environmental damage.

The above tools should be enough to assist you with properly caring for those eyes, but if you still have questions I’d be happy to assist you so please be sure to post them below.  Once again, put your skin first!
