Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimised by under eye bags and general dullness in that area? We feel you girl! The skin under the eye area is far thinner then the rest of the face and seems to cop the brunt of our lifestyles, the weather and the simplicities of smiling and laughing. Our first signs of ageing always become apparent around the eye area, in forms of crows feet and frown lines.
The area around the eyes lacks in oil glands which help to keep the skin hydrated, so it’s very important we use products that can give the area the moisture it needs. Under the eyes is also up to 10 times thinner then the rest of the face which makes it up to 10 times more vulnerable to the signs of ageing. The important thing to remember is that this skin gets even thinner as we age, yep so we need to be very vigilant with the care and products we use. It may sound obvious but as we are constantly squinting, smiling and blinking this area is getting continuous use and creating those fine lines, swelling and even drooping.
There are so many factors in our life that cause the puffiness and bags under the eyes or around the eye socket. It can be caused by diet, allergies, lack of sleep, alcohol, hormones, pregnancy and of course crying (put the tissues down babe). But we can use certain products to reduce this and give us that healthy bright eyed appearance.
Cosmology Skincare has produced two of the highest grade eye creams to combat all of the signs of ageing, the Hydrating Eye Cream and Rejuvenating Eye Cream. Our Hydrating Eye Cream is filled with strong peptides, anti-oxidants (which are fab for hydration), Vitamin E and other powerful brightening products. It contains ingredients that increase hydration, reduce inflammation (which is to blame for that puffiness we all dread) and visibly reduces fine lines. Hero ingredients include Hyaluronic Acid (plumping ingredient), Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil and Marine Collagen. A beautiful cream suited to all skin types.
The Rejuvenating Eye Cream is a stand out, it contains Liquid Crystals, which you can actually see when you apply the cream, Liquid Crystals are an intensive anti-ageing ingredient. This eye cream also contains Ban Oil for skin texture and Silk Extract to provide moisture. This cream is so rich that we advise it to be only used at night time for complete Rejuenvation of the eye area. It is best suited to dry, sensitive and mature skin.
