Revive your eyes and reverse signs of ageing




By Jill O'Donoghue from Killarney Toning and Beauty Studio

The eyes are the first area to show signs of ageing so it's important to help prevent this - or reverse it - depending on your age and skincare routine to date.

The first and most important advice would be to wear sunglasses always as premature ageing from the sun and squinting can cause damage.

Secondly, use a specific eye make-up remover as this area is very delicate.

Thirdly, apply a fantastic eye cream or eye gel twice daily. I recommend Sothys Radiance Eye Cream to combat circles, wrinkles and dark spots.

Finally it's important to have an eye facial, especially if you haven't been having facials regularly, are 25 and over and want to keep your eyes looking young, or aged 45 plus and you want to correct the signs of ageing, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness.

It's also good if you're affected by screen light exposure, sleepless nights due to hormonal changes or late nights out.

The new CACI eye revive treatment is for everyone concerned with ageing eyes. It will help to lift and tighten the skin around the eyebrows and corners of eyes, reduce the puffiness under the eyes, and reduce fine lines and hooded eyelids. With the dual action of LED light therapy, the micro-current energy stimulates tissue regeneration and helps the production of collagen. The synergy of these two technologies provide visible and longer lasting results.

The treatment itself is very relaxing, takes 45 minutes and focuses on the eye area. It starts with the lifting of the brow muscles, smoothing the fine lines at the corners of the eyes (crow's feet) and draining build up of fluid and lymph under the eyes. We then use specific serum filled eye rollers with micro-current which have a cooling effect on the skin to gently tighten and tone sagging muscles around the eye area, whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's finished with a silicone mask infused with hyaluronic acid and we use a galvanic current to push in the serum and hold it in the deeper layers of skin. It's very refreshing and brightens the skin.

With a cast of over 50 it’s no small undertaking – but that won’t deter one panto group who are only too happy to get back on stage this weekend.

It’s been two years since they staged a show due to COVID but the Marian Players Rathmore are rearing to go tomorrow night (Saturday) with their hilarious show ‘Dame Annie Goes West’.

A medley of comedy and colour, combined with music and dance, locals from both sides of the border have been working together to make it a great production.

“We’re very excited, we can’t wait! It’s great to be back,” Mary Hickey told the Killarney Advertiser.

“They [the cast] got together in October and they’re at it since.”

Val Moynihan is the “genius behind it”, she added, and it’s produced by her son Brian Hickey, and co-written with Eilish Coakley.

She said that they have loads working in the background also doing the stage curtains, lighting and making costumes amongst other tasks.

“It’s a pantomime without the pantomime in the background! It’s a whole community effort both sides of the border.”

Evening shows start at 7.30pm tomorrow (Saturday) and again Sunday (January 29) at 3pm.

Mid-week shows continue on Wednesday next (February 1) at 7.30pm, Thursday (February 2) at 7.30pm and also Saturday (February 4) at 7.30pm and Sunday (February 5) at 3pm.

The booking office (085 2031730) will be open every day from 2pm to 6pm to reserve seats and collect tickets and is located adjacent to the community centre, next to Christy’s Take Away.

Seats may be reserved over the phone too and paid for using a bank card. All proceeds are going to Kerry Parents & Friends Association.
