Debunking The Mystery of Eye Care
Posted on 31 March 2017
No matter how many beauty secrets or year-rewinding makeup tricks we know, there's always one area that’s hardest to beat and the quickest to show signs of aging -- the eyes! They are the first feature to give away our age, completely ruining the chance we have at recycling our last ten birthdays.
Fortunately, you can help slow down the onset of aging eyes with products that actually work. This means no junky serums or fancy packaging with bogus claims; we’re talking about the real deal, that contains the essential ingredients and antioxidants your eyes need. Let's take a look at what you might be missing in your eye care routine and how you can finally start seeing results.
A non-negotiable eye care ingredient is vitamin C. Doing a lot of heavy lifting, it works hard to soften fine lines, fix uneven skin tones and brighten your complexion. Sounds like a keeper, right?
Our Day-To-Night Eye Gel contains 10% vitamin C to give you an extra dose of wrinkle fighting power. You'll see a decrease in the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and bags with regular use.
Retinol is another key agent in the battle against eye wrinkles. It works to shed off dead skin cells and quicken the cell turnover process, revealing younger, more beautiful skin underneath. Bravo!
Consider our Retinol Surge Moisturizer, while it’s primarily a facial care product, you can also use it around the eyes.
Giving skin a breath of fresh air, antioxidants help detoxify and nourish our under eyes. Typically extracted from berries in the form of oil, these ingredients play a central role in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles.
We love our Age Defense Eye Cream because it is jam-packed with age-defying antioxidants like raspberry, blueberry and lemon oil - a whole team of youth-boosters!
How To Apply It
Applying any eye treatment requires a delicate touch. The skin under our eyes is quite thin and prone to wrinkling (in case you haven't noticed), so it's best to be gentle. Simply dab the product into the skin using your ring finger, which creates the least amount of force.
The Difference Between Eye Gels and Creams
Chocolate or vanilla? Some choices are tough. Fortunately, choosing between eye gel and cream is much easier. An eye cream is infused with oil-based ingredients that offer a high level of hydration for women with normal to dry skin. Gel, on the other hand, is made with fewer oil based ingredients to smooth and even skin. Eye gels are best for women with oily skin who want to reap anti-aging benefits without the shininess that ensues at the end of the day.
So, if you've been searching for the right eye care, look no further! You're now properly groomed to make the best choice. Always look at the ingredients first and never let snobby labels or impulse give way to a bad buy. Perhaps Mr.Jiminy Cricket had it right when he said, “Always let your conscience be your guide.”
