Crows Feet are the BANE of my life…they actually put me off smiling in photo’s because my eyes crinkle up like a wrinkly old boot!!! My eyes are also super sensitive and forever watering, because of either the cold, the wind, the light or the simple fact that they’re open! Drives me crazy! I think it’s down to the fact that for the past 10 years, because I work doing massage and facials, I always have dim lighting and candle light in the room to create a relaxing atmosphere for my clients. So, then when I go outside, the normal daylight is just so severe and I’m always squinting, just adding to the wrinkles! I’m very self conscious of them and even more so when people actually point it out! One day in work, I’ll never forget it, I was just giving aftercare to one of my clients after a facial, encouraging regular cleansing, exfoliating and masks, etc and she turns around and says to me,”And tell me what do you do for YOUR crows feet???” I could have cried! Anyway because of all that, I am forever on the search for the ultimate eye care product! And I think I might just have found it.
Dermalogica’s Age Reversal Eye Complex, part of their Age Smart Range, is back, revamped and better than ever! I trained with Dermalogica years ago and have loved the brand ever since. If you follow me on Snapchat (sarahdwan1), you will know I’m always encouraging my followers to use a separate eye cream from their face cream. This is vital because the skin around our eyes is different to everywhere else on our face and is five times thinner. And, this is why they are often the first to show signs of aging. Great!
This wonder product combats ALL the main eye concerns you could have: fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and loss of elasticity. It can be used as a preventative, by helping stop new lines from forming, as well as, reducing lines that are already there. Thank you Dermalogica!
The amazing ingredient in this product is RETINOL! Think of retinol as the anti-aging super hero! It increases cell renewal and turnover, which helps diminish lines and wrinkles. It speeds up the production of collagen and elastin helping us look younger for longer. Collagen and elastin are responsible for keeping our skin plump and firm, but unfortunately, as we age their production decreases.
Another key ingredient of Age Reversal Eye Complex is VITAMIN B3. This helps strengthen and improve tissue resilience and reinforces the barrier function of the skin to help reduce dehydration and fine lines. Music to my ears!
The Age Reversal Firming Complex is an exclusive formula to Dermalogica made up of: palmitoyl tripeptide 5, hyaluronic acid, microalgae extract, Vitamin B5 and Viatamin B3. These incredible ingredients combined, fight free radical damage, pigmentation, lack of firmness and the appearance of wrinkles. Skin appears plumper, fuller and smoother after a couple of weeks of use. I have been using well over two months and I have definitely noticed a difference. My makeup no longer sits in my lines because they don’t appear to be as deep, the dryness around my eyes is completely gone and the appearance of my dark circles are after fading dramatically! I am so pleased with my results.
I started using every second night to begin with, because it contains active ingredients and it’s important to let your skin get used to them. After about two weeks, I started using every night. As retinol encourages cell turnover, the new skin is delicate and should not be exposed to the sun, so this product is for NIGHT TIME USE ONLY.
My top tips for eye care –
- use an eyecream
- wear sunglasses ALL YEAR ROUND, not just in summer. Even in winter damaging UVA rays are coming through
- be very gentle, using your ring finger PAT around eye socket working in the way, ensuring you’re not dragging the skin
- get 8 hours sleep a night
- WATER, WATER, WATER.Drink at least 2 1/2 litres a day, to help keep those fine lines lines at bay
