One of the first signs of aging can be seen around your eyes, and it has now become a common phenomenon to see wrinkles under the eyes in people who are in their 20s and 30s (and even some teenagers). The delicate skin around the eyes is extremely thin and is vulnerable to dark circles, swelling, puffiness, and wrinkles. These can be a concern for many, and it is important to know how to maintain youthfulness or how to get rid of the first signs of aging. These are two products that I would recommend to help correct any skin concerns around the eyes or maintain the youthful skin around the eyes.
1. ZO Skin Health Olluminate® Intense Eye Repair: Since the age of 16 I have always used an eye cream and I have found that this is the most important item in any skin care regimen. Whether you are ill or haven’t slept well because you have been studying all night or working all night, your eyes unfortunately give away the whole story. Therefore, it is vital to have the right eye cream to help brighten up and maintain youthfulness around your eyes! After trying many eye creams, I have found that the Olluminate® Intense Eye Repair is one of my favourites. I have now been using it for over 6 months, and have found a difference in the skin around my eyes – whether it be more brightness or less puffiness or less darkness (even after a long night without much sleep). This eye cream has retinol in it and peptides to strengthen the skin around your eyes. I also had to look into how it reduces the appearance of dark circles and found out that the optical diffusers within the cream highlight the eye area to reduce the appearance of dark circles. The cream is thick and spreads out, thus you only need a little to go a long way! It has been 6 months, and I still have 25% of the product left.
2. Colorescience Eye Camouflage: After again going through many products at my mother’s skin care clinic, I came across this wonderful product! The Eye Camouflage combines Vitamin K, peptides, and moisturizing reflective pigments to reduce the appearance of dark circles creating brightness to the eye area. How does it work? The light yellow tone of the product reduces the appearance of dark circles and shadows. I use the Colorescience Eye Camouflage in combination with my makeup (it is not a substitute for any eye cream but enhances the effects) under my eye concealer along with the Peptide Treatment (refer to “Time to Glow” post to learn more :)). Use two dots of the liquid on each eye and blend it in with your eye makeup, and this gives the best results!
