All Eyes On You: The Eyecare Special You've Been Waiting For
To eyecare or not to eyecare. That is the question. With millions of options on the market and a large variety of price points for tiny pots of product is easy to think that an eye cream is an unnecessary step in your skincare regimen. And if not unnecessary, maybe occasional? Maybe not crucial? Maybe not worth investing in?
We feel your skepticism, but we also sense that you’ve been intrigued for a long time by the idea of splurging on a single product that could, potentially, make your entire face look better. Truth is that a bright, luminous, awake and depuffed eye contour can change your entire appearance. Today we are revealing all the fuss about eye-targeted skincare products, and why these are such a determining choice in your overall beauty routine.
YOU ASKED, WE DELIVER. WELCOME TO THE ONE AND ONLY EYECARE SPECIAL
“Is it ok if I use my normal moisturizer also around the eyes?” or “Can I put on an eye cream just once or twice a week, since I hardly remember to do so?”. These are just some of the questions that we get on a daily basis. And sadly, the answer is no.
You should give your eye area the same attention and methodology you would give to your face or body. Would you ever use a shower gel as a face cleanser? If the answer is no, then you probably know what we’re talking about.
The first rule here would therefore be to use only specific products formulated for your eyes. The skin around the eyes is one of the thinnest layers (by 40%) out of the whole-body skin. This makes the area way more sensitive and prone to irritations and reactions to certain ingredients, also due to the lack of oil glands.
Therefore, formulation is key when searching for an eye cream or serum.
Moreover, the eye area is the one working out the most and with harsh expressions, like smiling or squinting. Not to mention the average 28,800 times a person blinks a day. Overtime, the skin loses its collagen and elasticity, and this area is typically the one showing the earliest signs of aging.
The undereye area also features a dense network of capillaries which, if stressed, leads to the formation of dark circles and redness, without mentioning the obvious circumstances like lack of sleep, poor nutrition and excessive UV and blue light exposure.
Sadly, there is not a one-fits-all solution so you should consider your eye area as a whole system, just like your body, identifying the main concerns and addressing them singularly and regularly. Consistency is key and taking care of your eye should become an everyday practice.
Another thing to consider here is how to apply eye products. Given the above features, avoid scrubbing, rubbing and scratching, and instead pretend it’s a tiny baby skin so pat each product gently using either your pinky or ring finger as they apply the least pressure. After learning all the dos and don’ts, it’s time to delve deep into our exquisite eyecare selection of miracle-workers that target all the main concerns. From fine lines to wrinkles and sagginess, from puffiness to dark circles and dullness, we’re pretty sure you will find a remedy for each!
First up, we are very proud to introduce you an innovative formulation from none other than the revolutionary TFC8-developer, Professor Augustinus Bader. Are you ready to meet The Eye Cream?
AUGUSTINUS BADER - THE EYE CREAM
After years of research and development, the future of eye care is finally here. And it’s called The Eye Cream from Augustinus Bader. So simple, yet so resonant. The proprietary cell renewing technology from Professor Bader as come to the rescue of the most demanding area of the face. The Eye Cream is weightless yet creamy and comforting. It brings together the most efficacious clean actives known to refresh and renew this delicate area, like French Seaweed, Pennywort, and Arjun Tree Extracts. The signature TFC8® technology supports the body’s natural renewal processes. The addition of Niacinamide and Vitamin C further helps to setback the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and vital antioxidants safeguard against the damaging effects of blue light exposure.
The result is refreshed, well-rested and visibly younger skin, along with a radiant and healthy look. Look at the user trials below:
Out of 106 female participants, aged between 18 and 70, of various ethnicities
- 99% noted that the skin around their eyes felt soothed and smooth after 12 weeks
- 98% said the skin around their eyes felt firmer and more plump after the same time period
The Eye Cream has been tested on clinical trials too, and here’s the outcome:
- 96% agree skin around the eyes looks firmer, lifted, and feels more elastic.
- 96% agree under-eye puffiness is visibly reduced.
- 94% agree the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are diminished.
- 93% agree under-eye bags and dark circles look noticeably reduced.
There may not be a one-fits-all solution for eye concerns, but this one comes pretty close to that. The Eye Cream is available as a complete set with a ceramic base (an inert, non-polluting material) or in its 100% recyclable aluminum packaging as Nomad.
