All About the Eyes

All About the Eyes

It’s as plain as the nose on your face: the eye area is the first place to show signs of stress, fatigue, and aging. The main reason is that the skin around the eyes is very delicate—about 10 times thinner than facial skin. Fine lines, expression lines, and wrinkles are deepened by smiling, frowning, squinting, and even blinking (and most people blink about 10,000 times every day!). Overall, thinning skin and collagen breakdown are the culprits that cause signs of aging around the eyes. It’s clear to see: eye areas need concentrated products, but it's essential to use non-irritating creams, or you just prolong the cycle of irritated, stressed eyes.

In general, puffiness, lines, and bags are caused by excess fluid under that thin, delicate skin in the eye areas—and puffiness can get worse when you eat salty foods, suffer from allergies, are dehydrated, have sun damage, or even when you just need sleep. Take yawning, for example. Have you noticed that when you yawn, your eyes water, just like crying? When your eyes create that excess fluid, this creates undereye swelling, too. Plus, bags and sagging are worsened by rubbing the eyes when you’re sleepy or stressed.

Fine lines and wrinkles make the situation worse. They can be deepened by smiling, squinting, blinking, and just making natural facial expressions. Sun damage, smoking, and loss of elasticity also contribute to lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

The solution? You need to prevent collagen breakdown, promote collagen synthesis, and improve microcirculation to keep skin in the eye areas healthy, strong, and firm. And that solution is Eye Wrinkle Corrector, with its peptides that help encourage collagen production to help reduce signs of aging around the eyes. Eye Wrinkle Corrector contains seven, yes seven, skin-transforming peptides that specifically target these problems. The formula also contains skin-loving botanicals, powerful antioxidants, brightening ingredients, nourishing algae extracts, and like Le Mieux serums, Eye Wrinkle Corrector has a hyaluronic acid base—which is like a moisture cushion protecting skin cells.

What’s the best way to fade out dark circles under the eyes? First, determine what the cause of dark circles might be. Is it fatigue? Stress? Allergies? Genetics? Some people are genetically inclined to have dark circles since they may be predisposed to have very thin, transparent skin under the eyes. Their blood vessels underneath the skin are more visible, creating the dark shadows that can be accentuated by fatigue or compromised blood flow.

However, you can help minimize the look of dark circles and lines by nourishing that skin under the eyes, so it becomes stronger and firmer. That’s where using the appropriate eye cream comes in. Eye Wrinkle Corrector contains 7 peptides to improve skin density and thickness—including acetyl octapeptide-3 to reduce expression lines, acetyl hexapeptide-8 (known as Argireline) to smooth out wrinkles, acetyl tetrapeptide-5 to reduce eye puffiness, palmitoyl pentapeptide-4 (known as Matrixyl) to minimize wrinkle depth, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 and palmitoyl tripeptide-1 (known as Matrixyl 3000) to encourage collagen production, and dipeptide-2 to minimize dark circles.

Eye Wrinkle Corrector also contains potent ingredients from Mother Nature. Red ginseng brightens and improves microcirculation, white tea helps ward off oxidative damage, quinoa helps plump and iron out fine lines, mamaku leaf helps tighten and smooth, lily flower helps brighten and decrease puffiness, and moringa oil and cupuacu butter help seal in moisture. The best of science and nature work together when you make Eye Wrinkle Corrector part of a daily and nightly skincare routine.

Looking for an extra powerful eye cream to target deep lines and wrinkles around the eyes? Blend a pea-size amount of Eye & Lip Cream with a dab of Eye Wrinkle Corrector until the mixture becomes clear. Pat into skin around the eyes. The amped-up mixture absorbs instantly into thirsty skin for plumping, firming, and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, while improving elasticity and texture.

Need an “instant eye lift” before a special occasion, or as a pick-me-up to restore tired-looking, “hangover” eyes after a special event or just a long day? Step 1: Pat 3-5 drops TGF-B Booster into eye areas. Step 2: Apply TGF-B Eye Firming Mask. Remove after 15 minutes. Step 3: Mix a dab of Eye Wrinkle Corrector with a dab of Eye & Lip Cream and pat into skin. You’ll be amazed at the transformation.
