Treat those windows to your Soul – It’s got to be your Eyes of Course!
Keep your eyes moist.
Heat or air circulation from a fire or heater can cause dryness and irritation of the eye. It can be particularly painful and annoying for those who already suffer from dry eye, a chronic condition in which the body doesn’t properly produce tears. Try sitting farther away from heat sources and use artificial tears or a humidifier to alleviate dryness.
Here are just a few of our Best Sellers –
SkinCeuticals AGE Eye Complex – Skin around the eye is the thinnest, and the visible signs of intrinsic aging or natural aging, caused by internal factors such as hormonal shifts and changes in skin metabolism, can be most evident in this delicate area.
Glycation, a major factor of intrinsic aging, occurs when excess sugar molecules bind to collagen and elastin fibres and prompt the formation of advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.) that may lead to the appearance of aging. As a result, glycated collagen and elastin fibres lose the ability to function normally, and the body cannot break them down and replace them, leading to severe wrinkling of the skin.
A.G.E. Eye Complex is an anti-wrinkle eye cream specifically formulated to help prevent and correct visible signs of glycation around the eyes. An ideal eye cream for dark circles, it is also formulated with optical diffusers that instantly improve radiance of tired, dull eyes.
ELEMIS Pro Collagen Hydra Gel Eye Masks – For eyes that need a hydration boost in a pinch, these clinically proven* eye masks are key. Formulated with powerful marine actives and hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, this unique gel treatment provides an instant skin-tightening effect whilst deeply moisturising the delicate eye area. In just 20 minutes, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye contours are visibly reduced, for a younger, smoother and tighter look.
