The skin around the eyes is delicate and prone to showing signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles. Eye cream is formulated with specific ingredients that target these concerns, as well as hydrate and moisturise the delicate skin around the eyes.
Using the cream consistently helps to keep the skin around the eyes looking youthful, bright and refreshed. Additionally, regular use of eye cream can help to prevent future signs of aging, so it is an important part of a comprehensive skincare routine.
Abbey Essentials moisturising eye cream with hyaluronic acid and retinol is a skincare product designed to hydrate and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the delicate eye area. Hyaluronic acid helps to attract and retain moisture in the skin, while retinol is a form of vitamin A that stimulates collagen production and improves skin texture. It is an effective addition to a skincare routine for those looking to address signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of the skin around their eyes.
HOW & WHEN TO APPLY EYE CREAM
Eye cream is typically applied in the morning and at night as part of a daily skincare routine.
In the morning, eye cream can help to hydrate and refresh the skin around the eyes, as well as provide a smooth base for makeup application.
At night, eye cream can help to repair and regenerate the skin while you sleep. The skin around the eyes is delicate and can show signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, more easily than other parts of the face. Applying eye cream at night can help to address these concerns and keep the skin around the eyes looking youthful and bright.
When applying eye cream, it is important to use a gentle tapping motion with your ring finger, as the skin around the eyes is delicate and prone to bruising. A small amount of eye cream is usually enough, and it should be applied gently along the orbital bone, avoiding the eyelids.
THE BENEFITS OF HYALURONIC ACID
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that acts as a lubricant and cushioning agent. It has the ability to hold onto large amounts of moisture, making it an effective ingredient in skincare products. When applied to the skin, hyaluronic acid forms a barrier that helps to lock in moisture and keep the skin hydrated. Additionally, it can help to plump the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The acid works by attracting and retaining water molecules, which in turn provides the skin with a hydrated and plump appearance. The ability of hyaluronic acid to hold onto moisture makes it an effective ingredient in a variety of skincare products, including creams, serums, and masks. This is precisely the reason we used 1.9% Hyaluronic Acid in our area.
The concentration of hyaluronic acid in a skincare product can vary, and 1.9% can be considered a relatively high concentration. However, the tolerance for hyaluronic acid is generally higher than for other active ingredients, such as retinol.
THE BENEFITS OF RETINOL
Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that is commonly used in skincare products. It works by increasing cell turnover and promoting the production of collagen, a protein that gives skin its elasticity and firmness. This leads to an improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
When applied to the skin, retinol is converted to retinoic acid, which then interacts with specific receptors in the skin cells. This interaction triggers a series of events that results in an increase in cell turnover and collagen production.
Retinol also has antioxidant properties, which help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. This can lead to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as an improvement in skin texture and tone.
However, it is important to note that retinol can be a potent ingredient and may cause skin irritation, dryness, and sensitivity to sunlight. As such, it is recommended to start with a low concentration and to gradually increase the strength of the retinol product as your skin adjusts. It is also important to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen when using retinol, as it can increase skin sensitivity to sunlight.
IMPORTANT: The concentration of retinol in a skincare product can vary based on individual skin type and tolerance. 1% retinol can be a high concentration and may cause irritation around the eye area, which is delicate and sensitive. If you are new to using retinol, we recommend to start with a lower concentration of retinol and gradually build up to higher concentrations as your skin becomes accustomed to it. Always wear sunscreen during the day to protect the skin from UV damage.
EYE CREAM ABUNDANT WITH NATURAL INGREDIENTS
We included an abundance of natural ingredients to boost hydration and nourishment to the delicate eye area.
Organic grapeseed oil and coconut oil are both rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, which can help protect and hydrate the skin. Glycerin is a humectant that can help attract and retain moisture. Organic shea butter is a nourishing ingredient that can help improve the skin's texture and elasticity. Aloe vera is known for its soothing and moisturising properties.
The addition of violet leaf essential oil may provide a subtle fragrance and additional skin benefits, but if you have sensitivity to essential oils it's important to be mindful of its use around the delicate eye area.
