A new product that protects the skin around your eyes from damage.
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, pufness, 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.
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 purication processes to eliminate cellular debris and toxins that can cause damage – but the eye cream and serum help to clean things up.
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, inammation, 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, reects light effectively and simply looks better.
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.
