Salster I hope you're not using your retin A under the eye area! If you are, than that would explain the creapiness there. Try Elizabeth Grant eye serum and eye cream together. They are superb for the eye area and keep the whole eye area well hydrated. Get on to her regiman.

I think Retin-A can be used under the eyes as long as one is using a low strength and introduce it gradually.

Retin-A is one of the very few ingredients that is scientifically proven to improve wrinkles. If under eye crepiness occurs, cut back on the frequency and dilute the strength by priming with moisturizer.

I would also try to determine if something specific is causing the eye bags...are they there all the time, or do they just show up periodically?

For me, higher sodium intake causes fluid retention, and I am guaranteed to have eye bags the next morning. Allergies, lack of sleep, and heredity are also causes.

Oh thank you for replying to me. My retin a is 0.05% now as i ws using the lower one for quite some time and have recently moved up. Imnot putting it directly under my ey up to the lash line. I pat alone bony bit below my eye as i was told thats where you put eye creams and then they creams are drawn upwards themselves. Is this wrong.

Should i put the retin a right under my eye but mix it with eye cream first?

It seems the bagginess is the part thats getting really quite bad just lately x

I use Retin A .05% under my eyes with no problems...if you see redness or it feels irritated there, then you can dilute it, but other wise you should be fine.

It should also not cause the bagginess...that would be due to something else.

My answer would have been the same. Your diet can affect your skin to a certain extent.

Hi Sally, I have not used this product from NCNProskincare, but I do know that Nanci sells just products that she herself uses or would use and she is wonderful at answering concerns and questions.
How about asking her for advice regarding this No Lines Wrinkle remover that she sells, she states there that it gets rid of under eye bags for approximately 8 hours. It is not an under eye treatment though, it is just a temporary fix. I am sure that Nanci would be able to get you some more specific advice on this one.

Salster68, I would recommend trying the Remergent Microcirculation Therapy. This is a nice light cream and sinks in very quickly so it certainly won't add to the eye bags which many eye creams do because the skin in that area just can't absorb many of the eye cream ingredients. This eye product has a different approach in that it increases circulation which, in many cases, can remove any excess fluid being held under the eyes. You should see some effect within a day or so, and a good improvement after a few weeks. The container is designed to pump out the required amount and you use one pump for each eye.

I have had great improvement with using PSF's Vitamin C serum and CellularSkin's Vitamin C serum. The improvement builds, but there is also an immediate tightening and firming effect especially around the eye area with regard to crepiness, sagging, and bags.
