The eye area is very delicate, not only because the skin is thinner than the rest of the face, but also it contains very little irrigation of sebum (oil). Mother nature made it that way because if we did, oil will end up in our eyes. The down side to that is that age takes its course there first…
Using an eye cream at an early age will keep that area well hydrated, preventing the early formation of lines and wrinkles.
There are many different formulations of eye creams.. ingredients such as arnica, vitamin K, vitamin C, Helichrysum, peptides, licorice, etc… are just a few of the ingredients regularly used in eye creams to help treat dark circles, puffiness and lines and wrinkles.
One question that I get asked all the time is “how and when to apply the eye cream”?
For optimum results it is normally recommended to apply the eye cream twice a day, along with the rest of your skincare regimen.
The best direction to apply it is INWARDS with a continuous circular pattern and with soft tapping movements using your ring finger… that way you don’t cause any pulling on the skin and help to increase circulation and absorption of the product.
“We are what we eat”…
I am sure we have all heard that phrase..
and although it is true in the sense that our health is directly linked to proper nutrition, the food we consumed is absorbed and used in order of priority by our organs and tissues. Important organs such as: the heart, liver and kidneys use a great amount of the nutrients to restore and re-energize their functions. The skin as the largest organ of the body can easily get depleted of important vitamins necessary for proper regeneration and healing. That is why applying topical nutrients can help reinforce and provide the skin with crucial elements to optimize cellular metabolism and functioning.
Some of the most important nutrients used in skin cocktails are:
Glutathione- Taurine- organic silicon- DMAE- B Complex, vitamins A, E, C, hyluronic acid, Resveratrol, Oligopeptides, Alphalipoic Acid, Growth factors and many others…
It is very important to note that the vitamins for skincare need to be formulated for topical use and must count with a a small molecular structure so that they can be easily penetrated and readily absorbed by the skin, otherwise; the product would remain on the surface with no significant benefit.
A modality that is broadly used to improve penetration of the nutrients is “Electroporation Technology” which permeates the cellular membrane temporarily to allow better absorption of the actives.
Another method used by doctors to inject the actives directly into the dermal areas been treated is Meso-Therapy.
Let us not forget that still the first guard of defense for Healthy Skin is a Healthy Diet but we can certainly see A BIG difference in how the Skin becomes more radiant and re-energized after a good VITAMIN INFUSED SKIN TREATMENT!!!
