EASY ON THE EYES

COM­BAT SIGNS OF SKIN AGE­ING AROUND THE EYES WITH THESE EASY TIPS, PRE­SENTED BY THE BODY SHOP.

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Burberry Special -

Pic­ture this: You squint while read­ing mes­sages from your mo­bile phone, and soak in the sun’s rays as you walk down the street. At the same time, you’re bom­barded by free rad­i­cals in the en­vi­ron­ment from cig­a­rette smoke and car ex­haust fumes. Add habits like blink­ing up to 10,000 times a day and tug­ging the skin as you ap­ply and re­move eye makeup, and it is no won­der that ne lines ap­pear as early as in your 20s.

Such stres­sors weaken skin func­tions; your skin’s re­newal process also slows as you age. The skin’s func­tions thus be­come slug­gish, re­pair works slow down, and it be­comes weaker and more sus­cep­ti­ble to in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal ag­gres­sors like stress, free rad­i­cals and UV rays. These el­e­ments dam­age the der­mis – the layer where fi­bro-blasts pro­duce col­la­gen to keep skin firm and bouncy – rob­bing your face of its firm­ness, elas­tic­ity, smooth­ness and clar­ity.

Feast Your Eyes

To boost skin re­newal at the eye con­tours, su­per­charge the skin with THE BODY SHOP DROPS OF YOUTH EYE CON­CEN­TRATE,

$49.90 (10ML), a pre-serum. This light­weight serum for the del­i­cate skin around the eyes con­tains stem cells of the edel­weiss – a re­silient plant that nour­ishes through harsh winters and blaz­ing sum­mers – to get the skin’s re­newal rate back on track. In this way, it is be­lieved to strengthen the skin’s re­gen­er­a­tive func­tions, leav­ing you with a smoother, brighter eye area. It also mois­turises with babassu oil. Ap­plied be­fore your usual eye serum or eye cream, it gets skin into its best con­di­tion so that the sk­in­care that fol­lows can pro­duce op­ti­mum re­sults.

Go Up Against Sag­ging

THE BODY SHOP POME­GRAN­ATE FIRM­ING & RE­FRESH­ING EYE ROLL-ON, $48.90 (10ML), leaves skin feel­ing tighter and rmer. The light­weight, anti-age­ing mois­turiser soft­ens the look of wrin­kles and keeps the eye area well hy­drated.

Tip: Be Lighthanded

Use light pres­sure when re­mov­ing eye makeup. Soak a cot­ton pad with a makeup re­mover like THE BODY SHOP CAMOMILE GEN­TLE EYE MAKE-UP RE­MOVER, $19.90 (250ML), and hold it against your skin for a minute be­fore swip­ing off your makeup.
