On Monday, August 21, a total solar eclipse will be visible to people across the United States located along a relatively narrow, 70-mile-wide band from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. To those in North American not located along this band, the “Great American Eclipse” will still be viewable to some degree as a partial eclipse. Lucky, for Kansas Citians, we will be in the path to view a total eclipse where the moon will completely cover the sun. This amazing, first in a lifetime and possibly once in a lifetime event, will begin in Kansas City with the countdown to totality starting Monday, Aug 21 at 11:41 a.m. and completing at 2:35 p.m. For approximately 43 seconds, at 1:08 p.m., a total eclipse will be viewable. If you’re not sure what to look for leading up to, during and immediately after the total eclipse, physorg shares all the highlights including the diamond ring, prominences, totality, corona, the planets, horizon, shadow bands and Bailey’s beads. Be sure to pay attention to wildlife and the environment, too. Animals will change their behavior, returning to their nests or barns as the total eclipse nears.

Just as you need to protect your eyes with certified glasses when viewing the solar eclipse next Monday, you should also protect and correct the skin around your eyes -- every day. As you get older, the skin around your eyes typically shows signs of aging sooner than other facial areas. This may surface as fine lines, wrinkles and a loss of elasticity. Obagi has you covered with its products specifically targeted for the skin around your eyes. Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Cream is formulated with clinically proven ingredients to help create a smoother look around your eyes. This one-of-a-kind eye treatment contains a bi-mineral complex, malonic acid and blueberry extract. The bi-mineral complex includes zinc and copper to help restore elasticity and build collagen. In addition, a patent-pending Obagi malonic acid formulation helps stimulate the production of skin cells. And finally, blueberry extract provides antioxidants that help eliminate free radicals. All of these are delivered to your skin through a special Obagi technology, Penetrating Therapeutics™, that helps drive the ingredients deep into the skin.
