The structure of the skin around the eyes is lacking in oil glands, collagen and elastin. The area is subjected to constant movements including the approximately 20,000 eye blinks per day. These all contributed to the vulnerability of the area to dryness, dehydration and early signs of wear and tear such as fine lines, wrinkles, lost of firmness and elasticity.
How Caffeine Helps Firm and Tighten The Skin Around The Eyes
Caffeine is a natural stimulant commonly found in coffee and tea. The benefits of Caffeine in skincare are mainly due to its ability to stimulate blood circulation and protect skin against free radical and environmental damage. Caffeine accelerates the flow of blood in the capillaries which helps revitalise and firm the skin.
Caffeine also helps protect skin against premature ageing and UV-induced DNA damage. DNA damage is known to increase the risk for skin cancer.
A four week study showed that a Caffeine eye pad reduced wrinkles and dark circles while also improved the appearance and elasticity of the skin. Another clinical study showed that Caffeine eye gel was effective at reducing the puffiness.
How to Care for The Fragile Skin Around The Eyes
To help maintain or improve the condition of the skin around the eyes, use a gentle eye cream like PariQu Rosehip Eye Cream. Formulated with Caffeine and Rosehip oil, it helps revive and protect the fragile, sensitive skin from premature signs of ageing. It also helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Gently apply to the skin around the eyes twice a day or as often as necessary.
For deep wrinkles and lines, gently apply award-winning Henry Tianus Bio-Collagen Serum sparingly to the skin around the eyes then seal it with Rosehip Eye Cream. Bio-Collagen Serum has been formulated with 8 bioactives including Resveratrol, Nano Gold Particles, Ferulic Acid, Coenzyme Q10 and Ultra-Low-Molecular-Weight Hyaluronic Acid to plump up, lift and firm the appearance of skin. Resveratrol, Ferulic Acid and Coenzyme Q10 are superantioxidants that also protect the skin against environmental damage and premature ageing.
