A good eye cream makes up an essential part of your skincare arsenal. You see, unlike the rest of the skin on your face, the eye area is considerably thinner and more delicate, making it more susceptible to the effects of environmental damage such as pollution and UV rays. It’s also one of the first areas of the face to show signs of ageing, which can appear from your mid-twenties onwards.
Not all eye creams are created equal, so to help slow the ticking naturally, we’ve specially selected the finest botanicals known for their unique efficacy on the delicate eye area, to help pep up peepers and give them the love they deserve.
A 360⁰ approach is vital to help visibly lift and firm the delicate eye contour, while also reducing the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Superskin™ Eye Cream does this with ease, chiefly because the innovative formula is enriched with powerful botanical ingredients. These natural powerhouses include paracress extract to lift and firm, pomegranate fruit and green tea extracts, which work to lessen the appearance of those dreaded dark circles, and alfalfa extract (which we source from a cooperative in France) to help to ease the appearance of puffiness.
Top tips for acing your application
- After cleansing and toning, apply a pea-sized amount, about half a pump, evenly between the tips of your middle fingers.
- Tap the cream in a circular motion, starting at the outer corner of your eye, moving under the eye and then over the orbital bone, out to any fine lines.
- Smooth outwards around the eye contours, using both your middle and ring fingers.
Abigail’s expert tip
“Repeat each move 3 times to help the cream absorb.”
Did you know?
The skin around the eyes is under the strain of 22 muscles in perpetual motion and 10,000 blinks per day. No wonder it’s one of the first areas to show the signs of ageing.
An eye cream for all ages
Environmental exposure can trigger an inflammatory process in the skin, contributing to dark circles, while very fine lines just under the eyes start to become visible.
Eye brightness starts to diminish, while deeper lines and crow’s feet can begin to show as a result of stress caused by dynamic facial movements such as laughing or squinting.
With age, the collagen framework begins to weaken so skin loses elasticity and may become drier, causing hooding to the eyelids.
Lines continue to become more visible and eyes can begin to appear deeper set. Fluid also starts to collect under the eyes as a result of decreased lymphatic drainage, contributing to puffiness.
All of the visible effects of ageing continue to develop and become more pronounced.
