Why You Should Use An Eye Serum
If you are in the quest for youthful, perfect skin, this will be a good read on your way to arrive at the proverbial fountain of youth. Amazingly, retinoids may well live up to their mythical status as the gold standard when it comes to an ingredient that delivers the anti-aging goods. Retinoids—retinol, Retin-A, and retinaldehyde—are a group of vitamin A derivatives that can help treat acne, brighten skin tone and reverse the signs of ageing.
When should you use them?
Some experts recommend incorporating retinoids into your skincare regimen as soon as you start to notice fine lines (at 30-plus). But if you’re struggling with acne, you may want to start even sooner, especially to combat comedones—the small, fleshy bumps that form when a pore gets clogged.
What is Retinol?
The most common retinoid, available to purchase from drugstores and beauty counters. It converts naturally into retinaldehyde and then into retinoic acid but only on an as needed basis. This is the gentlest form of retinoid and thus the best tolerated.
3 Reasons why you need an eye serum
Reason #1: The skin around your eyes needs specialist care
The skin around your eyes is thinner than anywhere else on the face which makes it more sensitive and prone to damage. There are also fewer oil glands in this area which is why your eyes are one of the first places to show signs of fatigue and ageing, as there isn’t enough moisture available to keep things ticking over. Using a facial moisturiser instead won’t give you the results you need as the consistency will be too heavy and it won’t contain the right combination of ingredients. Our eye serum is designed to be lightweight in texture but still pack a punch in terms of skin care. It smoothes and combats the most common signs of ageing around the eyes.
Reason #2: Eye creams offer a more targeted approach
Puffiness, dark circles and crow’s feet are just a few of the ways the skin around your eyes can react to the environment, your diet and even your sleep pattern but the main reason behind your skin’s bad behaviour is a lack of moisture. The primary focus of any eye serum is hydration as this will help to repair the damaged moisture barrier without overwhelming the delicate skin around the eyes. If fine lines are your primary concern, then you can’t go wrong with the Moksha Eye Serum, which uses a blend of peptides and retinol to increase the production of collagen to plump up wrinkles.
Reason #3: They help your concealer go on smoother and last longer
When concealing spots, the drier they are the more difficult they are to hide. If you find that your under-eye concealer always creases or wears off before lunchtime then you shouldn’t blame your concealer, you need to point the finger to that unused eye serum on your dressing table. Dry skin around the eyes makes it harder to blend your concealer and prevents it from adhering to the skin properly which means it doesn’t last as long as it could. Think of your eye cream like a primer for your concealer as it smoothes, hydrates and creates the perfect base for your make-up. Moksha Beauty Eye Serum is a moisturising and soothing eye cream that helps to create a brighter eye area.
The Moksha Eye Serum is designed for mature or premature aging skin around the eye area with retinol for fewer visible fine lines and wrinkles. Targets concerns of the eye area, primarily wrinkles and crow’s feet plus puffiness, dark circles due to hyperpigmentation and skin sensitivity due to dehydration.
