The facts about the skin around the eyes

The skin around the eyes is the thinnest and most fragile skin on our entire body, hence the blood vessels can easily show through the skin. 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 contribute to the vulnerability of the eye area to signs of ageing including dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and elasticity.

The facts about Niacinamide

Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin B3 with the ability to stimulate blood circulation and protect skin cells from environmental damage. Unlike retinol and niacin (other form of vitamin B3) which can be very irritating; niacinamide is very soothing and hydrating. Niacinamide helps prevent skin irritation, redness, dryness and dehydration. 

Niacinamide Tones and Firms Up The Eye Area

Compared to the skin on the rest of the face, the skin around the eyes is softer and more delicate. It is prone to damage and premature ageing which cause loss of tone and firmness. Not all active skincare ingredients are suitable for the eye area. Niacinamide is one of the best skincare ingredients to tone and firm up the delicate skin around the eyes for these following reasons:

1. Niacinamide enhances skin's natural defence mechanism

Studies showed that niacinamide strengthens skin's barrier function and boosts the amount of fatty acids and ceramides in the skin by up to 67%. Niacinamide strengthens the skin's defense against external aggressors including pollution, UV lights and harsh weather conditions.

2. Niacinamide boosts skin's collagen and elastin levels

Further clinical data showed that niacinamide increases the production of various proteins in the skin including collagen and elastin by up to 100%. Niacinamide tones and firms up the skin around the eyes. It improves skin density and elasticity; niacinamide helps prevent and diminish the appearance of crow's feet.

3. Niacinamide improves skin's ability to retain moisture

Due to lack of oil glands, the skin around the eyes is prone to dryness and premature ageing. Studies showed that niacinamide helps prevent transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Niacinamide improves skin's ability to retain moisture for longer. It helps prevent skin dryness around the eyes.

4. Niacinamide helps prevent and reduce the appearance of dark circles

Numerous studies showed that niacinamide prevents skin darkening and brightens the complexion. The brightening effects of niacinamide help prevent and reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.

How to Prevent and Reduce the Signs of Ageing Around The Eyes
