An eye cream is an essential part of any skin care regimen. After all, it’s the skin around your eyes that is the thinnest and most susceptible to showing signs of aging. It’s not only natural aging, loss of firmness and fine lines and wrinkles that can impact the look and feel of skin around your eyes, however. The impact of the environment can create pigmentation changes, further damage your skin and even increase the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. Murad offers two eye treatments that not only address the general signs of aging or fatigue around the eyes but also address the signs of environmental damage, both working to repair and protect against environmental wear and tear on the sensitive skin around your eyes.
Essential-C Eye Cream
With a sun protection factor of 15, this is a Vitamin C infused eye cream that’s ideal for both day and night use. When used as a daytime eye cream, the SPF guards against sun damage around your eyes and the Vitamin C infusion provides antioxidants to fight free radicals, restore skin and prevent further damage. However, in addition to protecting and restoring, Essential-C Eye Cream also improves the immediate appearance of the skin around your eyes. Murad’s patented Skin Repair System stimulates collagen synthesis. A combination of Caffeine and Tiger’s Herb increases elasticity and firms the skin around the eye, and the Caffeine also works to reduce under-eye puffiness. Finally, Shorea Stenoptera Butter not only hydrates the area but also prevents moisture loss. Whether used during the daytime or as both your day and evening eye treatment, Essential-C Eye Cream offers environmental protection while improving the overall appearance and health of the skin around your eyes.
Lighten and Brighten Eye Treatment
Dark circles and under-eye bags are two of the most prominent signs of environmental damage around your eyes, and Lighten and Brighten Eye Treatment dramatically reduces these. In fact, it’s been shown to reduce dark circles by an average of 59% and to reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness by up to 50%. Best when used as a nighttime treatment, this product features the lightening agent Hydroquinone, which lightens the appearance of dark circles. Palmitoyl Tetrapetptide-3, combined with firming and conditioning agents, works to reduce under-eye puffiness. Finally, Manganese Gluconate helps to neutralize the effects of pollutants.
The skin around your eyes is incredibly sensitive, and therefore incredibly sensitive to the impact of sun and pollutants in the environment. That’s why it’s important to address environmental factors with your eye care regimen.
