Have you been wondering if you need eye cream as a part of your skincare regimen? We know, you might be looking at the your medicine cabinet at the overflowing products and wondering if you reallly need to add another item to the mix. Our answer is a resounding YES!
Our reasoning is simple – if you’re going to make skincare a priority in 2023 and you’ve been considering ways to keep your complexion healthy and youthful, the most prominent area that shows age is around the eyes. And it can show our age faster than any other part of our face.
Do You Really Need Eye Cream?
We think an eye cream can be one of the most important pieces to an effective anti-aging skincare routine. Every interaction we have, be it with ourselves in the mirror or anyone we encounter throughout the day, usually involves eye contact. Oftentimes, the first part of ourselves we realise is starting to show our age in our eyes. And in turn, we start to judge ourselves about it. That can be crushing to our self and skin confidence.
If you’ve noticed darker colouring around the eyes, prominent crow's feet, sagging skin or puffiness, now is a good time to start utilising an eye cream. Even if you haven’t experienced any of these signs of aging yet, eye cream can go a long way to reduce it in the future.
What Does Eye Cream Do?
Not all skin is the same. The skin around your eyes is thinner and an extremely delicate area, which can be greatly affected by everyday life and environmental stressors. On the basic level, an eye cream should protect this sensitive area and help reduce and repair fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, and discolouration.
An effective eye cream should not only address these concerns, but overall work to fortify the skin and assist with keeping the ever-so-important collagen production at its peak. While some eye creams focus on hydration, which can be a major cause for wrinkles, the best eye creams should also improve collagen, protect against UV exposure, boost circulation, and repair damaged skin cells.
Is Eye Cream Necessary?
The real question is, “Do you want to keep your facial complexion looking younger?” If you answered yes to that, we’re right there with you. For this question, we truly believe the benefits of having a quality eye cream in your skincare routine are essential to keeping your skin looking younger for longer. Given the sensitivity of the area around the eyes, normal moisturisers just don’t cut it and can end up irritating or inflaming the skin. Especially if you have more sensitive skin than others.
Our eyes show age the most, and the quickest. Eye cream is one of the most important steps when it comes to layering your skincare effectively, formulated specifically to address that area to liven up the skin around your eyes. It’s meant to work with other skincare products in tandem, but your skincare doesn’t have to be as complicated as you think. That’s why our Restorative Eye Cream is an integral product in our Rejuvenating Ritual, involving just a handful of products scientifically formulated to turn back the clock on our skin.
6 benefits of the Restorative Eye Cream
Our Restorative Eye Cream has the best of what you need to keep those eyes of yours looking bright and full of life. With the combined anti-aging effects of East Cape mānuka oil and rosehip oil, along with other phenomenally effective natural ingredients, you’ll notice dramatic positive effects to your skin around the eyes.
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles:
The Restorative Eye Cream is formulated with powerful anti-aging ingredients like peach kernal oil and avocado oil that help to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Both of these ingredients improve skin barrier function to make the appearance more soft, supple, and smooth. East Cape mānuka essential oil works to improve skin cell turnover and moisture retention to reduce wrinkles. Mānuka oil also has traits that protect against UV exposure, decreasing sun damage to the skin.
Brightens Dark Circles:
This eye cream contains ingredients that work to reduce the appearance of dark circles, leaving the skin around the eyes looking brighter and more refreshed. Avocado oil is also an excellent source of skin-replenishing fatty acids, including omega-3 linolenic acid, omega-6 linoleic acid, oleic acid, and beta sitosterol. Rosehip oil’s rich vitmamin A concentration also stimulates circulation to bring colour back to the area under the eyes.
Provides Deep Hydration and Nourishing:
Formulated with aloe vera extract, a phenomenal humectant, this helps to create a thin barrier to lock in moisture and reduce moisture loss throughout the day. Aloe vera also helps to keep the skin around the eyes hydrated and plump. East Cape mānuka essential oil at the same time creates a protective yet breathable area to ultra-hydrate the skin around the eyes.
Contains Powerful Antioxidants:
Pro-Aging Eye Cream has a double team of super-powered natural ingredients with incredible anti-oxidant power. East Cape mānuka and rosehip oil work together to fight off free radicals that disrupt our skin repair and collagen production, while reducing oxidative stress on the skin that causes rapid aging.
Promotes Collagen Production:
Rosehip oil, packed with vitamin A, is thought to be a wonder ingredient for anti-aging that boosts collagen production in the skin and reduces the degradation of collagen that happens as we age. This helps maintain elasticity and firmness of our skin. With the synergistic support of East Cape mānuka oil, rosehips “fountain of youth” like benefits for the skin are amplified even more.
Reduces Puffiness and inflammation
Sunflower oil used in our Pro-Aging Eye Cream is a powerful emolliant to soothe the skin, reducing the appearance of inflammation and puffiness around the eyes. Aloe vera extract, another amazing emolliant, is renowned for its skin-calming benefits.
