They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But there’s also a lot of beauty to be found within the eyes themselves, and in the surrounding sensitive skin. Our eyes are such an important aspect of our facial features. But the skin around our eyes is where the signs of aging begin. Every time the muscles around your eyes contract, they contribute to fine lines and wrinkles, so it’s important to keep this fragile skin strong. The right eye care can help prevent and repair damaged and weakened skin—and you can bet MyChelle can help!

Fixing 3 Common Under Eye Problems

Below are the top 3 under eye concerns and top solutions that you’ll want to keep an eye on:

Aging Eyes

Think of the eye area as delicate tissue paper, while the rest of the skin is a thick card stock. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner due to collagen breakdown. This can be additionally aggravated by over exposure to the sun, smoking, and other environmental exposures. Because of the skin around our eyes is so thin, this area is the first to start to show signs of aging.

Keep the fines lines, crow’s feet, sagging skin and wrinkles at bay with a one-two punch by using the Fabulous Eye Cream and Remarkable Retinal Eye Cream. Each morning, nourish the delicate eye area while minimizing the look of fine lines by applying the Fabulous Eye Cream. Revolutionary edelweiss plant stem cells inhibit collagen breakdown, reducing wrinkle depth after only 20 days of use. Hyaluronic acid binds moisture within the skin, smoothing and firming the eye area.

At night, use the Remarkable Retinal Eye Cream which contains the most potent non-prescription form of vitamin A (patented-process Retinaldehyde) to promote healthy skin renewal. This advanced serum uses the skin’s natural repair cycle to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation by accelerating cellular turnover. This non-irritating formula includes Ceramide 3 and orange plant stem cells to provide essential moisture, protect against environmental damage and reduce redness.

Puffy Eyes

Under-eye puffiness is a common complaint and can cause the eyes to appear more aged than the actually are. Puffiness can be exacerbated by salty foods, dehydration, stress, lack of sleep and allergies. Drink plenty of water, which plays a crucial role in maintaining the elasticity of skin, plus your eyes and body will thank you for the extra hydration. Avoid smoking cigarettes–the nicotine constricts blood vessels in the skin and under the eyes, making it difficult for nutrients to be absorbed, which can lead to a breakdown of collagen. Also, when removing makeup, use gentle pressure to avoid unnecessary tugging and pulling. Lastly, get plenty of beauty rest, it really does help!

Apply the Wrinkle Spot Treatment loaded with a potent combination of fruit extracts and clinically proven, age-defying peptides leuphasyl, inyline, and argireline. Proven through independent studies, this cooling, wrinkle-reducing trio instantly hydrates and plumps troublesome areas and soothes the under eye area with a targeted rollerball applicator.

Dark Circles

Dark circles can be caused by many things like allergies, fatigue, sun exposure and, of course, genes–thanks Mom and Dad! Rubbing the skin under the eye can be damaging and can contribute to sagging and irritation. Applying and removing makeup, putting on and taking off contact lenses and crying are all ways we can stress this delicate skin. Be gentle when touching your eyes!

Incorporate the Magnolia Fresh Eyes into your daily routine. A blend of powerful botanicals, green caffeine and plant extracts shed light on even the darkest under-eye shadows and send bags packing. Prodizia strengthens weakened capillaries and supports the release of excess fluid responsible for dark circles and puffiness. Green coffee stimulates and revives, while magnolia leaf extract helps strengthen and promote repair for a well-rested look. Apply a pearl-size amount under eye area with fingertip onto freshly cleansed skin, morning and night.
