Featuring fast absorbing, potent ingredients for a more youthful eye area.Posted on May 16, 2018 Written by: 100% PURE®
The difference between tired, drooping eyes and fresh, youthful looking eyes is one small beauty addition that many of us (shouldn’t) skip, and that’s eye cream. In the same way that hand cream is formulated to maintain hydration for the resilient yet high-maintenance skin on our hands, eye cream is made just for our baby-blues. If you’re worried you haven’t been taking the best care of your eyes, no need to lash out just yet. Today we’re featuring the perfect vegan retinol eye cream that all you skin care junkies are absolutely going to love. Let’s talk about how this retinol eye cream can take your eyes from eye-caramba to eye candy.
Why Use a Retinol Eye Cream?
You might ask, what makes the skin around our eyes unique? On top of being thinner than the skin all over our faces, the eye area is getting a constant workout every time we blink, look around, squint at sharp sunlight, or for some of us, every morning when we tug at the outer corner to get that perfect winged liner. The eyes are put under constant duress, so a face moisturizer just doesn’t cut it for what our eyes actually need. Face creams can balance excess oil or reduce face redness, but don’t do much for issues around the eye area.
The best retinol eye cream features smaller molecules and faster absorbing ingredients, making it ideal for the smaller pores of your eye area. A vegan formula, non toxic and cruelty free formula makes this retinol eye cream even more worth splurging on.
Benefits of Retinol Eye Cream
The most important ingredient can be found in the name. Retinol sounds like a serious ingredient, and it does some serious goodness for our skin. Most retinol is found in meat, fish and dairy products but our retinol is vegetable-derived, making this product truly the best retinol eye cream for our skin and our animal friends. As a Vitamin A derivative, retinol is naturally found in vegetables and is proven to improve the appearance of aging skin. Once applied, retinol converts into retinoic acid that visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging. Retinol is a must for helping to smooth out fine lines and crow's feet around the eyes. In addition to boosting collagen, retinol helps enhance skin cell turnover rate. This means that it helps to bring new skin to the surface faster to lessen dark spots.
Soothing Rosehip Water
Got dry, itchy eyes? Suffer from eczema or allergies? The rosehip water in this formula is going to be a life-changer for you. The rose water in our Retinol PM Eye Cream is organic. Rosehip has been celebrated for its anti-inflammatory properties, and is incredibly soothing for irritated eyes, dry skin, redness and general inflammation.
All you have to do to find the best ingredients for eye cream is turn over this tube and read the back label. One of the most powerful ingredients in this formula is hyaluronic acid. We know you will love how silky and sumptuous the Retinol PM Eye Cream feels and in part, this is due to the rosehip water and organic glycerin. This is so important for the eye area, because with the constant movement and sun exposure, the eye area can easily become dry and wrinkled. Hyaluronic acid does the important job of sealing in these hydrating ingredients, as well as deliver potent age correcting vitamins, stem cells, and peptides to your skin cells for a more youthful eye area.
Moisturizing Acai and Pomegranate Oil
The best retinol eye cream is the gift that keeps on giving with the inclusion of organic pomegranate oil. Pomegranate oil is nourishing for the skin around the eyes because it introduces the power of antioxidants. Antioxidants, when included in skin care help to fight age-enhancing free radicals that worsen wrinkles, age spots and dark circles. The Vitamin C naturally found in acai and pomegranate oil helps to brighten and refresh the skin, increase collagen and contribute to a perkier looking set of peepers.
How to Use a Retinol Eye Cream
First, cleanse your face for maximal absorption of potent ingredients in your retinol eye cream. We recommend the Fermented Rice Water Cleanser for skin brightening and softening. Follow with the antioxidant and caffeine packed Green Tea EGCG Protective Serum to soothe dark circles and puffy eyes.
Using enough product to coat the tips of your ring fingers, gently apply the Retinol PM Eye Cream around your eyes, including upper and lower lids. The skin around your eyes is extra thin and sensitive, so remember to use as little pressure as possible! Continue to smooth out the cream with your ring fingers. Follow with the Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants Ultra-Riche PM Treatment all over face and neck to pamper your skin with correcting Vitamin C and reparative Vitamin A. As it says in the name, this eye cream works best under moonlight. Due to the potency and anti-aging power of many of the ingredients, this can make skin sensitive in sunlight, so not only do we advise using this eye cream at night only, but it is best to protect the skin with a sunscreen as well the next day.
Try the Tomato Lycopene SPF 20 Moisturizer for a vegan, antioxidant packed formula. Need an SPF that’s compatible with oily skin? Our Yerba Mate Mist SPF 30 is mattifying and hydrating.
