The skin around our eyes is under the strain of 22 muscles in perpetual motion and more than 10,000 blinks per day! Our eyes display expression and emotions that are an important part of our individuality and this extremely sensitive and fragile area is known to betray the slightest bit of tiredness and reveal the passage of time. In fact, the eye area ages 5-10 years faster than the rest of the face and is one of the first places where visible signs of aging begin to emerge – hence the need for a personal care regime to maintain healthy eyes.
The skin around our eyes is ten times thinner than the skin on the face, becomes even thinner as you age and is extremely vulnerable to age-related changes in appearance, including dark circles, under eye puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles. Why? Because the tissue around the eyes is lacking sebaceous glands, collagen and elastin fibers.
The skin’s elasticity is like a rubber band – constant tugging and pulling eventually causes loss of elasticity. Puffiness and dark circles in this area – caused by lack of sleep, alcohol and even hereditary factors can age your face notably. This can be further aggravated by sun exposure, smoking and other environmental exposures. As a result, fine lines, wrinkles and traces of tiredness can thus appear prematurely. What this means is your eyes require extra effort and care to minimize the signs of time.
At PLANTED IN BEAUTY, we believe that the best solution for your eye care needs is our Depuff + Illuminate Eye Firming Complex. This highly effective, multi-tasking, rich and nourishing eye complex packs a lot of punch into a single dab. It is makeup friendly and based on skin-loving, plant-based ingredients, which includes a wide range of vitamins and antioxidant-rich plant extracts, to help visibly lift, firm and define the eye area for a smoother, brighter look.
Deep moisturizing emollients, Apricot Oil, Almond and Aloe Vera remain on the skin’s surface keeping it supremely hydrated and protected against moisture loss and dehydration. Meanwhile, skin-brightening and skin-restoring botanical extracts purposefully absorb into the skin for ideal nourishing and revitalizing impact. Yerba Mate and Ginkgo detoxify, smooth and reduce puffiness while Sunflower Seed Oil and Beech Tree Bud help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This fragrance-free eye care is packaged in an air-restrictive, opaque container to keep the light and air-sensitive ingredients stable as well as the formula pure and untouched.
The skin around your eyes is very delicate and sensitive so it should come as no surprise that less is more when it comes to the application of your eye treatment. A small pea-sized amount in the morning and evening is all that you need. If you use too much there is a risk that some of the product might transfer into your eyes which will cause irritation.
Pat, tap or gently massage the cream under the eyes and along the orbital bone from the center, outward. A way to ensure that you don’t apply too much pressure is to use your ring finger as this is your weakest finger. You don’t want to rub or tug the skin as this will cause irritation, redness and wrinkles.
