Continuing with what skincare products Dr. Perricone recommends for use during the 28 day diet, the next two are separate products but related. Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C Ester Eye Area Therapy. These two products alone got me started using Dr. Perricone's products in January 2002, and to this day I use them faithfully.
My experience with ALA Eye Area Therapy and Vitamin C Ester Eye Area Therapy
I started with two products, the first being Alpha Lipoic Acid Eye Area Therapy and Vitamin C Ester Eye Area Therapy. This post will concentrate on my experiences with the eye products (which were nothing short of miraculous!).
The Eye treatment contains Vitamin C Ester, NTP. This Vitamin C Ester and Tocotrienol solution is formulated to provide care to the delicate tissue surrounding the eye. Using this unique serum, especially when used in conjuction with Alpha Lipoic Acid Eye Area Therapy, helps to provide complete eye care. The appearance of fine lines and puffiness are diminished with continued use.
For my regeme, I put a dab of the Alpha Lipoic Eye area treatment on my hand, then put 1-2 drops of the vitamin C Ester, mixed them up and applied this mix to the eye contour following carefully the eye bone above and below. I tried to be careful to avoid getting it in my eyes and on the eyelid.
Now this product is different because you mix the two products to get the best effect. The ladies at the Perricone counters insist that you mix this in the little skin between the index finger and the thumb. There is a little pouch there that is perfect because the skin there will not absorb the products in that area. Then when applying to your face, please do not rub it in hard!. It drives me crazy when I see people rubbing their delicate face and eye skin. Understand that it is NOT necessary because once you apply it to the skin, it is absorbed and your cells will move the chemicals thru the inter-cellular fluid. So be gentle people!

Alpha Lipoic Acid Eye Area Therapy
This treatment provides intensive care to the delicate tissue surrounding the eye. The NTP Complex (containing DMAE) and alpha lipoic acid, are suspended in a rich phospholipid base that helps to ensure the appearance of restorative and hydrating effects. The appearance of puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines are diminished with continued use.
I used this twice daily and as mentioned above, I put a couple drops of the Vitamin C Ester in it and then applied it to my eyes.
Well I followed my regeme every day for 3 months. After the first couple of weeks I noticed the crepieness on the lid was much diminished, also, the dark circles were fading. I tend to have puffy under eyes, and that was much more dramatic. The puffieness seemed to be so diminished I couldn't believe that.
That kept me going, so faithfully I used the 2 items. You would not believe, one day in March, I noticed, my lash line was lifted. I was so stoaked, dancing around the room because man, it really opened up my eyes.
Then I was really frustrated, because geez, I should have used the other products in his line all along! I would be 3 months ahead of the game had I just started everything at the same time.
I love these eye products. I have referred many of my friends, who are experiencing similar results as these. Also, my eyes look very nice now. I highly recommend these products for your eyes.
My eyes have never looked better in my life!
