How? It’s about creating a routine to soften and tone the gentle fine eye skin. Treating it with tender loving care, as it should be!

The beginnings of a commitment to enhance and brighten the eyes and create a look that emanates vitality.

Henry David Thoreau once wrote, ”The eye is the jewel of the body.” The perfect motive for striving to achieve youthful, radiant eye skin that will showcase your beautiful eyes.

The first signs of facial ageing tend to appear around the eyes due to the fragile nature of eye skin which is not as effective in absorbing and retaining moisture. This delicate skin lacks the oil glands and collagen that exists in our other face and body skin. Studies have shown that in areas where collagen and sebaceous glands are less dense, the skin is more vulnerable to dryness, sagging and wrinkling. Here, a daily eye skin care regime is of the utmost importance.

Factors Leading to Ageing Skin Around the Eyes

  • Failure to cleanse away mascara, makeup and grime may lead to dryness and irritation.
  • Using products that lack the ability to absorb and moisturise effectively may lead to dryness and lack of effective protection.
  • Tugging at the eye skin whilst applying beauty products may enhance the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Exposure to UV rays, pollutants and bacteria may cause pigmentation, blemishes, irritation and dryness.
  • Rubbing the eyes, lack of sleep, stress and poor diet may be individual causes of dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.
  • Frowning, laughing, smiling and squinting may contribute to fine lines and wrinkles.

Remedies for Helping to Reduce Ageing Eye Skin

  • Softly cleansing morning and evening with a product specifically formulated for the eye skin. A cleanser that not only cleans efficiently but also calms, protects and helps to maintain an ideal pH balance.
  • Consistent application of a moisturiser, specifically formulated for the eye skin, to help increase hydration, moisture and firmness as well as protect against environmental stresses.
  • Engaging in a healthy diet, good sleep and exercise.
  • Creating a tension-free environment.
  • Applying sunscreen and wearing sunglasses and a hat when outdoors.
  • And simply by having the know how to indulge in a specialised, futuristic eye skin care regime.

Introducing Cell Defence Fenugreek and Hops Eye Cream and its benefits

A non-oily, ultra-fine elixir suitable for all skin types and featuring all the benefits of a supreme eye moisturiser. Synergistically formulated with the ideal blend of pure and active ingredients to help create radiant, refined eye skin. Includes all the features of an ideal moisturising elixir, some of which are outlined below.

Improves collagen and elastin

Lavender Water, Glutamine (a derivative of Hops) and Fenugreek seed extracts provide a supreme blend of Phytoestrogens (plant estrogens): Natural plant based compounds that have a similar chemical structure to that of the body and have exhibited the potential to simulate estrogen in the body. Primarily, estrogen helps to improve the production of collagen and elastin. As the eye skin is very thin and often fragile, this would be especially beneficial in maintaining or increasing its thickness, firmness and elasticity.

Tones, tightens and reduces puffiness

Lavender Water is high in antioxidants and can resemble a toner; Firming, tightening and helping to maintain the skin’s pH level to protect its natural barrier and reveal a luminous glow. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory properties of lavender water can assist in reducing puffiness under the eyes.

Regenerate, repair, protect, hydrate, reduction of puffiness and skin whitening

Fenugreek (Trigonella Foenum-Graecum) seed extracts are a rich source of Antioxidants; Vitamins C, B1, B2, B3 and B6; β-carotene; Thiamine; Niacin; Nicotinic Acid; Riboflavin and Folic Acid. Studies have shown that these tiny golden seed extracts are significant because they are mainly comprised of galactomannans; compounds which can help increase the skin’s elasticity and improve its natural and gentle hydrating, exfoliation and environmental protection abilities.

Fenugreek seed extracts are noncarcinogenic; have skin whitening potential; and have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties. These properties help to reduce skin irritation thus alleviating the temptation to rub the skin around the eyes. They have also displayed the ability to reduce swelling which can potentially help to reduce puffiness under the eyes.

Fenugreek seed extracts are so extra special as part of this formulation because it helps to prevent cell damage; assists skin regeneration and repair; and helps to prevent the entry of toxins and bacteria from the outside environment.

Correct Eye Cleansing is a high priority. Please read on….

Optimise your daily routine by removing those particles that attach to your skin day and night from the environment, along with the make-up and skincare you may be applying daily.

We recommend using Cell Defence Chamomile Milk Cleanser

A cleansing milk that will softly and effectively lift and remove eye make-up and impurities whilst maintaining a natural moisture balance; leaving your eye skin feeling soft, soothed and refreshed.

The stimulating anti-oxidant properties of Blue Camomile make this a superior cleanser for all skin types to deeply cleanse whilst helping to retain the skin’s natural hydration and moisture balance. Simultaneously, the soothing, calming and anti- bacterial attributes render it a suitable cleanser for sensitive skin types, helping in the reduction of skin inflammation.

Blue Chamomile Oil has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibiotic benefits. In vivo skin penetration studies have concluded that the flavonoids in chamomile not only absorb at the skin’s surface but penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. This makes it highly beneficial as an inflammatory agent. As an antioxidant it helps to discourage the creation and spread of free radicals and as an antibiotic it helps to protect the skin against harmful bacterial agents.

Aqua, Coco Glucoside and other natural cleansing and foaming properties have been infused with Blue Chamomile oil to boost calming properties. Capuacu Seed Butter and nutrient rich Red Algae (Chondrus Crispus) extract have then been added for deep hydration and moisturisation. The resultant formulation brings together a natural source of amino acids, and Vitamins B, D and E.
