Teamine for Tired Eyes

Great Skin MD Product Challenge

This is a cream that is marketed through Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons’ offices for the treatment of those dreaded under-eye circles. Teamine has some interesting sounding ingredients like grape seed oil and avocado oil, but the jury is still out on whether this gets a “miracle cream” status. Truth be told, I do offer it to patients as an option, as I’ve seen some people get subtle but worthwhile results in their estimation. I do warn people about the rare but possible potential for irritation. Should you try it? If you have an extra $45 and an intense dislike of your under-eye skin, then give it a shot.

For tired appearing eyes, hydration and depuffing is key. For that job, my favorite is currently Lumiere BioRestorative EyeCream (by Neocutis). It has caffeine to help with puffiness and also some growth factors and antioxidants that are added to make delicate tissue look more fresh. I personally love using it, and I’m convinced that the extra hydration it provides adds an hour of well-rested sleep to my appearance. Ha!
