The skin around the eyes is one of the first areas to reveal ageing and tiredness. It’s thin, delicate and particularly vulnerable to air conditioning, central heating, the elements and pollution. It therefore goes without saying if you want eyes that sparkle and shine, you need to given them a little TLC.
Firstly, make sure you drink enough water. We know we have said it before but are saying it again. Water not only replenishes and hydrates your skin, but it’ll also helps prevent red, itchy, tired eyes.
If you don’t get enough sleep, it will show in your eyes. Aim for around seven to eight hours a night, and if you do wake with tired, puffy eyes sleep with an extra pillow to elevate your head and stop fluid collecting in your face, and if you want to help with wrinkles, make it a silk pillow case.
Choosing the right products for your skin can also be a deal breaker. Whether you want to combat lines, deal with dehydration or simply love having a fresh, dewy complexion, there is something for everyone at Pure Beauty and today we are going to focus on products from Dermalogica.
Before you do anything, start and finish the day with cleansing. Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make Up Remover is a soothing, conditioning gel with Silk Amino Acids that removes make-up, strengthens lashes and heels the delicate eye lid area. Apply a small amount to wet cotton wool, massage over the eyes and rinse. It’s as easy as that.
One of the newest products we stock is the brilliant Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift. This clever, active, cooling cream-gel works with your skin’s natural microflora to brighten and energise the eye area, while Sea Water Extract and Arctic Algae tackle puffiness and dark circles. The idea is that this product can give you a quick boost, or used daily it helps deal with sad eyes. To use this gel, you apply generously around the eyes after cleansing using the cooling massage applicator. Let the gel sink in for around five minutes then wiped away any excess or better, massage it into the skin – either way you will see the results, fast.
The Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex has a new formula and we love it. This breakthrough treatment has been created for the delicate eye area and really does undo ageing. Wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness, dark circles, hyperpigmentation and skin sensitivity due to dehydration are all at risk of disappearing after just one application. Vitamin C, Yeast and Algae Extract as well as Soy and White Tea are just some of the ingredients found in this product, which should be used every other night to start with, and as your eyes adjust use it every night and watch your eyes comes alive.
For a classic product, why not try the Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair? Perfect for dry and ageing skin, this super-rich cream helps deal with dehydration lines and gets to work repairing skin damage. Cucumber, Butcherbroom and Arnica help restore suppleness, Wild Yam Extract and Vitamin B5 help repair prematurely ageing skin, while antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E and Grape Seed Extract keep your skin safe from damaging free radicals. You simply pat a little cream around the eye area, blending inward from the outer corner, and let the ingredients soak in and get to work.
For help with the sun, Dermalogica Total Eye Care is for you. We love this technically-advanced eye treatment cream which contains alpha hydroxy acids that smooth while firming plant extracts re-texturise the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of puffiness and fine lines. Lovely light diffusers ease dark circles so your skin looks fresh but you are shielded from UV rays thanks to the chemical-free sunscreen that comes as part of this impressive package.
