You may feel en­er­gised after a good night’s sleep, but that doesn’t mean you’ll look as re­freshed as you feel. Sci­en­tists have found that be­sides fa­tigue and age, pol­lu­tion plays a big role in dim­ming the nat­u­ral ra­di­ance of the skin around your eyes, mak­ing it look chron­i­cally tired and lack­lus­tre.

Stud­ies also sug­gest that the del­i­cate eye area is 40 per cent thin­ner and ve times more por­ous than skin on other parts of the face. This means that pol­lu­tion – in­clud­ing ozone formed by the in­ter­ac­tion of sun­light, ni­tro­gen diox­ide and pol­lu­tants from smoke, ve­hi­cle ex­haust fumes and in­dus­trial emis­sions – af­fects the eye area more acutely.

Th­ese common air pol­lu­tants lower your skin’s nat­u­ral en­ergy and in­crease free rad­i­cals, cel­lu­lar dam­age and ir­ri­ta­tion. They also im­pair skin’s abil­ity to re­pair it­self at night. Thus, ne lines, pufness, dark un­der-eye cir­cles, dry­ness and an un­even tone start to sur­face.

To pro­tect the eye area from daily dam­age, Es­tee Lauder re­cently launched the Ad­vanced Night Re­pair Eye Syn­chro­nized Re­cov­ery Com­plex II. It’s avail­able in two lux­u­ri­ous tex­tures: a rich gel cream and a light­weight serum.

Ozone De­fence

Think of the Ad­vanced Night Re­pair Eye Syn­chro­nized Com­plex II as an es­sen­tial daily clean-up sys­tem that skin needs to func­tion healthily.

For ex­am­ple, did you know that a short stroll out­doors could rob the skin around your eyes of its health? Ac­cord­ing to a study by Es­tee Lauder re­searchers, just 20 min­utes of high ozone ex­po­sure in­creases cel­lu­lar dam­age by 272 per cent. This im­pairs the skin’s re­pair and nat­u­ral night-time purication pro­cesses to elim­i­nate cel­lu­lar de­bris and tox­ins that can cause dam­age – but the eye cream and serum help to clean things up.

Anti-pol­lu­tion Re­pair

Like the rest of your body, your skin needs fresh air to func­tion well. How­ever, every­day pol­lu­tion in ur­ban ar­eas over­whelms it with tox­ins and leads to ox­i­da­tion, sen­si­tiv­ity, inam­ma­tion, dull­ness and dam­age.

Air pol­lu­tion is un­avoid­able for city-dwellers, but the Ad­vanced Night Re­pair Eye prod­ucts have anti-pol­lu­tion tech­nol­ogy that con­tin­u­ously re­pairs dam­age caused by ma­jor en­vi­ron­men­tal as­saults from ozone, pol­lu­tion and UV rays. And the for­mula’s pow­er­ful blend of an­tiox­i­dants neu­tralises up to 90 per cent of free rad­i­cals gen­er­ated by the en­vi­ron­ment to fend off signs of pre­ma­ture age­ing.

In­fuse Skin with Mois­ture

The multi-pur­pose eye treat­ments also sat­u­rate parched skin with hyaluronic acid for an in­tense mois­ture boost, ght­ing the ef­fects of nat­u­ral age­ing, sun ex­po­sure, air-con­di­tion­ing and a poor diet, which con­trib­ute to skin de­hy­dra­tion. It pro­vides the per­fect en­vi­ron­ment for skin to re­pair it­self – and well-mois­turised skin ap­pears smoother, reects light ef­fec­tively and sim­ply looks bet­ter.

Eye En­er­giser

If, de­spite your best ef­forts, you still clock too many hours at your desk and are rack­ing up a sleep debt, tak­ing just ve seconds to ap­ply th­ese eye prod­ucts will work like a lovely cat­nap. For­mu­lated with a blend of anti-fa­tigue, skin-sooth­ing in­gre­di­ents, the serum and cream work to calm the skin and pro­tect it against ir­ri­ta­tion so that your eyes will im­me­di­ately look and feel more ra­di­ant and rested.
