The one thing I can say is not an urban myth is the strain that being a new mother has on the eyes. The heavy lids and the lines that become all the more pronounced with severe lack of sleep certainly makes looking into a mirror less than appealing.
From my previous reviews you will know that whenever I am in serious need of skin rejuvenation I turn to Dr. Perricone. Now is one of those times.
I am a new mother trying to find a balance in my life with all the changes that a baby brings, but sleep deprivation is one change where balance is not possible to obtain (unless you are exceptionally fortunate!) My skin was certainly suffering, but the main cause for concern after the initial days with my newborn were my eyes.
I knew there was something that could be done to combat the effects of limited sleep on the now-visible lines around my eyes and heaviness of my upper lids, but finding a product that actually had the desired effect was going to take some time to find.
After many product trials, and with my eyes still not restored to their previous glory, my thoughts turned to Dr. Perricone and how his products had been so effective in the past. I was directed to the Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione Eyelid Serum and was both pleasantly surprised and relieved to find a serum that targeted both the upper and lower eye issues (something that I had not found in my extensive research into eye products).
Acyl-Glutathione Eye Lid Serum not only addresses the upper eye lid area by dramatically improving the visible signs of accelerated aging, but the additional benefits are a dramatic tightness and firmness of droopy eyelids, a smoothing of creases and minimized redness and dark circles.
Perricone MD has once again proven to be the miracle brand I was hoping for, my eyes look more youthful and more alert than they ever did prior to my pregnancy.
