The delicate skin around the eyes is the first place to see the signs of ageing. This is partly because this skin in this area is one tenth as thick as the rest of your face making it is more susceptible to looking inflamed, grey, tired and lined.
Doesn’t sound great, but the good news is a balanced diet, lots of water, a decent night’s sleep and a thorough skincare routine can all help keep things looking good.
At Pure Beauty we sell a range of eye specific products and today we are giving you the low down on some of our favourites.
Cleansing around your eyes is really important, and for this we suggest using the popular Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make Up Remover. This is a powerful, but gentle alcohol and oil free formula can be used on all skin conditions and removes eye make-up without causing dryness, irritation or redness. Used morning and night, skin will not only be clean and fresh but thanks to Silk Amino Acids, lashes will be strengthened and eye lids conditioned.
Life can be stressful, and that stress can be seen in our eyes. The fabulous Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift is an high-performance treatment that energises the skin and takes away tension and strain. The cool cream-gel is packed with Sea Water Extract and Arctic Algae which minimise puffiness and dark circles so the eye area looks brighter, younger and more relaxed.
You might not of thought about a mask just for your eyes, but they are worth considering. In just ten minutes, the Elemis Absolute Eye Mask hydrates, nourishes and revitalises the eye area and helps bring it back to life. A clever combo of Rose, Mimosa and Cornflower, come together to restore the skins natural structural balance and supports the delicate collagen and elastin networks.
Screens, mobile devices and harsh lighting can make our eyes tired and that is where the Decleor Hydrotenser Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum comes into play. This hydro-tensor serum helps wake up and boost the eye area as well as tackling the wrinkles and fine lines that are part of the ageing process. Simply apply a little morning and evening, working from the outside in and your eyes will go from tired to revived.
For something a little different, we have the tinted Dermalogica Total Eye Care. This is an advanced treatment containing plant extracts that helps protect and repair the delicate eye area. Alpha hydroxy acids smooth the skin so that puffiness and fine lines are blurred and optical light diffusers reduce dark circles, so that skin looks dewy and fresh. With the added benefit of a chemical-free sunscreen, this really is a brilliant beauty must have.
Finally, we have to mention the Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Eye Balm, which we adore. In this 10ml tube is a wonderful concoction of Chamomile, Arnica and Bird of Paradise Flower that work together to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Apricot Kernel oil, which is rich in omegas, further nourish the skin and thanks to a clever cooling applicator, your skin will look illuminated look from morning to night.
