The skin around our eyes is a very important component of our complexion. As we age, this delicate skin can begin to develop under-eye circles, fine lines and wrinkles, and can begin to sag. But the good news is that we can reduce the appearance of these detractors from younger-looking eyes with consistent application of eye serums or creams. But why use a product specifically designated for the eyes? Why can I not use my moisturizer for my eyes as well? The delicate tissue around our eyes (also known as the “eye contour”) is approximately five times thinner than the skin on the rest of our face. So when we use moisturizer on these areas, the larger molecular composition of the cream is not able to absorb into the thinner eye contour tissue. We therefore don’t get the benefit of hydration, wrinkle-reduction or tightening of the eye contour skin. But not to worry, Jan Marini and Sothys have something to address every issue to restore younger-looking, more rested eyes.
Eye Creams and Serums:
Transformation Eye Cream: The Jan Marini Transformation Eye Cream contains a patented combination of growth factors and peptides to visibly improve texture and restore hydration in the eye area. This will cause a major transformation and improvement to the appearance of the skin around your eyes. It is recommended to use sparingly morning and evening to lower lids and across the brow bone for best results.
Age Intervention Eye Cream: The Jan Marini Age Intervention Eye Cream will help soften, smooth, hydrate, firm and define the appearance of the eye area. It will dramatically improve the appearance of wrinkles around the eye contour area, as retinol is an active ingredient to regenerate tissue. It is also recommended to use sparingly morning and evening to lower lids and across the brow bone for best results (same as the Transformation Eye Cream).
Sothys Multi Action Eye Contour: The Sothys Multi Action Eye Contour is just that- a “multi-action: formula that reduces lines & wrinkles, diminishes dark circles and puffiness, hydrates and protects. It is formulated with Alfalfa extract and stimulates the synthesis of collagen and prevents breakdown of fibers. The Multi Action Eye Contour should be used morning and evening to lower lids (under eye area) and across the brow bone.
Luminate Eye Gel: The newly formulated Jan Marini Luminate Eye Gel is specifically designed for the delicate eye area, as it reduces the appearance of under-eye circles, crepey skin and fine lines and wrinkles. You will also experience brighter and more radiant looking skin around the eyes with this amazing eye gel. This product should be used sparingly morning and evening to lower lids only. It is part of Jan Marini’s new Luminate line and has already received excellent reviews! Not an eye cream in the traditional sense, it should be used in conjunction with a hydrating eye cream (Transformation Eye or Age Intervention Eye Cream).
C-Esta Eye Repair Concentrate: The Jan Marini C-Esta Eye Repair Concentrate is an intensive antioxidant formula containing high concentrations of Vitamin C along with DMAE, CoEnzyme Q10 and other revolutionary topical agents to address multiple visible signs of aging around the eye. It will help lift, firm and tone your eye contour area. (If only it could do that to our entire body…) It is recommended to use sparingly morning and evening to lower eyelids and upper eyelids down to the crease, and can be used alone or with other Jan Marini eye creams for additional hydration.
Sothys Anti-Puffiness Gel: The Sothys Anti-Puffiness Gel is a unique roll-on applicator with a cooling effect that instantly reduces puffiness. Lupine seed extract decongests, improves micro-circulation and prevents the slackening of lower eyelids. This product should be applied to the lower lids (under-eye) morning and evening for intensive results.
