Getting older can be a wonderful thing; you aren’t running around after small children (unless they’re you’re grandkids and you can usually give them back before bedtime!), you have more time for yourself and most women feel more confident than ever in their fifties and sixties. Time, however, still marches on which means that you’ll often see bags and puffiness around your eyes if you aren’t already using a specific product to prevent them, so we thought we’d trawl through our products from Dermalogica, Decleor and Elemis to show you five products which will definitely help to give you a more youthful look around the eyes.
This serum from Elemis is specifically formulated to reduce puffiness around the eyes and is so powerful that two drops under each eye is literally all you need. It rehydrates and rejuvenates the areas, helping to decongest engorged tissues in the under-eye area which contributes to the look of eye bags and contains all natural ingredients. It conditions and nourishes the delicate eye contours and supports and tones the skin around the eyes.
The appearance of under-eye bags is often made worse by shadows, dark circles and hyperpigmentation, which is why Decleor developed a cream which is designed to lighten the skin under the eyes. The brightening effect of the White Focus complex and vitamin C is enhanced by roman chamomile essential oil and the Melano-Lock System for multi-brightening correction. It’s optical correction technology instantly tones down dark circles.
This eye treatment from Dermalogica is an incredible all-round product which is designed to tackle just about every issue you can think of! As well as tackling wrinkles and fine lines caused by dehydration, this cream will also lighten areas of hyper-pigmentation, reduce puffiness, target crows feet and exfoliate and smooth the skins surface, firming tissue and reducing appearance of photo-aged skin.
As we get older, our body’s collagen production naturally slows down which is why skin seems to lose firmness and elasticity. This can lead to the delicate eye area looking droopy and lacking firmness. This eye cream from Decleor targets droopy eyes with its L-PROLINE Complex and Natural Eye Tech Peptide, which combine to tighten and firm the skin, brighten dark circles and revive your skin’s natural luminosity.
Masks are such an excellent product for bolstering a regular beauty routine because they allow us to use more powerful products to fix specific problems. This mask from Elemis is unique in that it’s designed for use ONLY around the eyes and in just ten minute, twice a week, will hydrate, nourish and revitalise the eye area. It helps to counteract dullness, reinvigorates the area with moisture and will brighten and tone even the most tired eyes.
