ANTI-AGING EYE CREAM
Tired? Stressed? Refreshed? Happy? We know. We can see it in your eyes.
Your eyes and the area around them can share so much about you, including signs of aging. Don’t you think this area deserves a little independent attention from how you take care of the rest of your face?
Anti-aging eye creams are formulated specifically for the delicate skin around the eyes, and are perhaps some of the most overlooked products in skin care.
So how do you know if the eye area needs a little more attention? Some of the biggest motivators for people to opt for anti-aging eye creams are: discoloration, puffiness and wrinkling. For these top reasons, anti-aging eye creams are a better option than only using a moisturizer. An eye cream or serum tends to be of a more concentrated consistency, but an overall lighter texture than a moisturizer and is better absorbed by this delicate area.
A few quick facts:
- The eye area is fragile. It is 10 times thinner than the skin on the rest of your face. We are constantly washing this area to wake us up in the morning or to remove our makeup. Especially among makeup wearers, this area sees a lot of action. Makeup brushes, eye shadows, mascaras, and eyeliner…the skin around your eyes can go through a lot and on a daily basis.
- The eye area is quicker to show fine lines and wrinkles. The way we move the muscles around our eyes (squinting, showing expression, etc.) creates more laxity in these muscles which causes the appearance of lines and wrinkles quicker than on other areas of the face.
- The eye area can easily show fatigue via dark circles or puffiness. There are pockets under our eyes that can collect fluid, causing puffiness or reflecting dark circles making us look tired. Tired of those bags that show you’re tired? We get it.
Good anti-aging eye creams can effectively address all of these above issues. But, you also can’t forget about getting the proper rest to help rejuvenate this area. Remember: they don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing.
Wondering what the main reason is for why we need to preserve the eye area? It’s collagen – a naturally occurring protein in the body. Collagen loss occurs as we age. Because collagen helps maintain your skin’s elasticity, it’s important to preserve the collagen in this specific area. In our products, we do that with peptides!
Popular among men
Because women are usually earlier adopters to skin care than men, often times people feel that a product so specific like this will mainly be used by woman. But, it’s just as important that a man takes care of his skin too. The one product that men often aren’t using but should be is eye cream. Aging prematurely is often first revealed by the formation of fine lines around your eyes. Moisturizers alone aren’t specifically formulated for the sensitive skin around your eyes, which is a reason we need to properly protect this area. Fine lines, then puffiness and dark circles are among the top complaints men have about their facial aging and can be mitigated with a good anti-aging eye cream or serum.
What to look for in a good eye cream?
Peptides and antioxidants!
Peptides stimulate collagen production and antioxidants prevent free radical damage to the skin. The anti-aging effects of this combination will benefit you whether you use an eye cream for preventative measure or for repairing the damage that may already be done.
Our Perfecting Eye Serum is studied, tried and true.
We were so excited about our Perfecting Eye Serum and the results from the study we conducted on people who received and used Pamela Metamorphosis Perfecting Eye Serum vs. those who received the placebo. A double-blind study proved statistically significant improvement in their eye area vs. the placebo when it came to fine lines, wrinkles, discolorations, and quality of the skin including tone and texture.
This product is filled with powerful peptides and works hard to keep dynamic lines around the eyes from getting worse. It also contains the antioxidant, White Tea. In combination with the peptides, White Tea offers anti-aging properties that protect your skin cells in this area from damage, usually from free radicals.
So it’s got Witch Hazel?
A popular question that we’ve received on this product is regarding its inclusion of Hamamelis Virginiana or Witch Hazel. It is found in the product as a botanical, not a refined product, and put there to help the eye serum do its job of reducing lines and wrinkles. It is also an anti-inflammatory that is used in combination with the peptides in this product.
Go easy on your eyes.
The eye area is a small and sensitive area, which means you don’t need to use a lot of product to effectively cover the area. A small pea-sized amount in the morning or at night after cleansing is all you need.
You can also use this product on the lines and wrinkles you are seeing around your mouth. It can help build back collagen, smooth lines and wrinkles, and firm the skin around this area.
