Eyes of a stranger

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty -

No longer get­ting carded at the bar? Blame your dark cir­cles. Ac­cord­ing to an Olay clin­i­cal study of 55 women be­tween the ages of 20 and 45, the skin around the eyes is bi­o­log­i­cally about 10 to 15 years older than the rest of the face. The rea­son? It’s much thin­ner, has fewer oil glands and has as much trou­ble hold­ing onto mois­ture as we do our sav­ings dur­ing sale sea­son. “Even when you’re 20, the elas­tic­ity [around the eyes] is al­ready lower than the rest of the face,” says Dr. Frauke Neuser, prin­ci­pal sci­en­tist for Olay. Neuser was in­volved in the re­search be­hind a re­vamp of Olay’s col­lec­tion of eye creams, which in­cludes the new one-size-fits-all so­lu­tion Olay Eyes Ul­ti­mate Eye Cream ($40). It con­tains a cock­tail of anti-wrin­kle heroes, such as niaci­namide and pen­tapep­tide, com­bined with colour-cor­rect­ing pig­ment to in­stantly brighten cir­cles. In other words, don’t leave home with­out your ID .
