As claimed by Céline, Versace, Balmain, Saint Laurent, and many other designers, the spring-summer 2019 strategy involves a one-shouldered silhouette. Whether it’s on the beach with a one-strap swimsuit or on the town in a single-sleeve dress or top, there are plenty of good reasons to integrate this silhouette into your wardrobe.

Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Eye Serum by Elizabeth Arden, firms and reduces the look of crow’s feet and puffiness1 for eyes that look younger and brighter. It's a serum that immediately enhances skin’s natural barrier, increases moisturization within the surface of the skin, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After using for about 10 days, the dark spots on your face disappear and the area around and under eyes improve dramatically.
 Idrastin Gems is a special topical serum latest generation designed for the daily care of the skin around the eyes and face. Impact performs action to counteract wrinkles and blemishes around the eyes, in particular, the darkening of the area around the eyes.The presence dell'HALOXYL ™, a combination of 3 active ingredients that act in a synergistic way, strengthens and tones the delicate eye area, and attenuates the phenomena of darkenin.The formulation also has the valuable combination of Vitamin E and pure Retinol 0.03%.
The combination of the two products gives optimal results, personally I first apply the gold capsule by Elizabeth Arden that has a lighter consistency, I wait  few minutes to absorb and then I apply Idrastin gem which has a thicker consistency.
I recommend both of them.

The major ingredient of this ancient natural colour is iron oxide-hydroxide, known as limonite, which gives it its yellow colour. The hue belongs to a family of earth pigments, it ranges in colour from yellow to deep orange or brown. Ochre is a family of earth pigments, which includes yellow ochre, red ochre, purple ochre, sienna, and umber. From the Red Indians to the Romans, to modern day trendsetters, Ochre has enduring appeal. Ochre was used in decorative palette of the Romans, as well as Medieval Church painters. The Aboriginals have painted with Ochres for over 40 000 years and the Red Indians took their name from the Red Ochre they painted themselves with.
