Hey There,

I have heard that horse chestnut seed extract and vitamin K strengthen capillary walls, thereby reducing under eye pigmentation due to leaky blood vessels.

These are also 2 of the ingredients in the famous and expensive Teamine.

Dr T could you provide a formula for a DIY cream with these ingredients?



Would they be water soluable or oil soluable?

I think Vit K is fat soluble. Don't know about horse chestnut.

Vitamin K has no effect on dilated capillaries. Only on bruises.

Dr. Todorov: Would it possible to get a DIY formula for these two ingredients? Thank You :)

I don't currently have a formula like that in the infopack. If I get around it, I'll come up with one at some point, although I am highly doubtful of the value of vitamin K in this combo.

this thing bothers me . I went to see a dermatologist to identify the cause of my dark circles and wrinkles (i have only three to four fine lines underneath each eye) .

To my surprise , she said its just hereditary and that nothing can be done.
I was shocked coz none of my family members have any under eye dark circles.

Still I just went ahead asking her, whether can she say it cud becoz of capillaries or pigmentation or allergy . she was reluctant and kept saying it is aging , hereditary etc etc and no suggestion for resolving. I thought may be I shud see a different doctor. I am just 30 yrs and this dark circle started only few years ago. I never had them before .

Can anyone please suggest me how to determine the cause of dark circles and wrinkles and if teamine would help at all?
