- Get plenty of sleep. Lack of sleep is a major cause of both dark circles and under-eye bags. If you work to maintain a regular sleep schedule your body won’t be thrown into overdrive with irregular hours.
- General Tips: Exercise, reduce stress, take a multi-vitamin and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Dark circles can be a hereditary condition – deeply pigmented skin, or they can be caused by aging. As we get older the skin under our eyes can become thinner thus causing the veins under the eye to become more prominent. Dark circles can be exacerbated by the lack of sleep, over exposure to the sun, bad habits and menopause.
If the problem is due to bad habits or aging, use a Dermastir Eye Contour at night with Dermastir SPF50+ every day to prevent pigmentation and use Dermastir eye treatments that contain optical diffusers.
Crow’s Feet, Fine Lines or Wrinkles: Crow’s feet are fine lines and wrinkles appearing near the corner and under the eye area. There are two reasons why wrinkling seems to occur in these areas earlier than the rest of the face.
1 There are fewer oil glands located around the eyes, therefore the skin is thinner.
2 Most of facial expressions, such as smiling and squinting influence the area around the eye.
DERMASTIR EYE CONTOUR ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
Retinyl palmitate is the pre-formed version of vitamin A that is converted to retinol in the skin. The retinol is then converted to retinoic acid (Tretinion) which stimulates mitotic activity and decreases cohesiveness of follicular cells. There have been some amazing advances in treating fine lines and wrinkles using retinyl palmitate found in the Dermastir Eye Contour. Dermastir Eye Contour contains some form of antioxidants, which help to increase collagen production, strengthening the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, and making wrinkles less noticeable. The retinyl palmitate is also very effective in clearing off dark circles.
MOISTURIZING INGREDIENTS – pH 7.4
Dry skin under your eyes: Moisturizing ingredients can help to make skin look suppler and minimize the appearance of fine lines. Dry skin tends to highlight wrinkles and fine lines; so moisturizing treatments are more of a cosmetic than a treatment. The Dermastir Eye Contour, in its airless thermal packaging, guarantees that the moisturizing gel, when applied, does not effect the pH of tears which is 7.4
FAGUS SYLVATICA & WHEAT PROTEIN – Tensor properties
Itchy tired looking eyes: Be sure not to rub your eyes if they are itchy; gently pat or press the area with Dermastir Eye Contour. Dermastir Eye Contour has wheat protein which has a tensor effect. Wheat protein has been proven to be an anti-irritant and has some healing properties. It is also considered anti-itching, extremely soothing to the skin and has the ability to neutralize skin irritants.
VITAMIN E – Anti-oxidant
Vitamin E when applied at night has the benefit of forming a protective layer that will protect the eye contour area during the day. Vitamin E also has anti-oxidant properties; this is very important for the eye contour area, since the skin in the eye contour area is very thin.
The microbial cellulose has transdermal delivery properties that are so important in this formulation since the eye contour area is very thin. The cellulose helps to keep the above listed active ingredients longer around the eye, in a fibre matrix that is formed around the eye.
