What’s the best Q. way to treat the un­der-eye area? I hate cak­ing on con­cealer in sum­mer.

ELLE (Australia) - - Beauty -

A. We’ve got a two-pronged ap­proach for you: a great eye cream and a killer pair of sun­nies.

First, treat the area with a nour­ish­ing top­i­cal cream packed with in­gre­di­ents that work as hard as the eyes them­selves — six tiny mus­cles make about 100,000 move­ments per day! Look for pep­tides, which plump fine lines by in­creas­ing the thin skin’s pre­cious col­la­gen stores, and an an­tiox­i­dant to pro­tect the area from the el­e­ments.

“The eyes are sub­ject to many ag­gres­sors, from con­stant blink­ing and ex­pres­sions to bright lights, wind, dust and pol­lu­tants — so help­ing to pro­tect from ox­ida­tive stress is al­ways a good idea,” says So­nia Amoroso, founder and CEO of skin­care brand Freeze­frame, who laced their Re­vi­taleyes for­mula with vi­ta­min C. “It also con­tains a pep­tide clin­i­cally proven to re­duce the ac­cu­mu­la­tion of ox­i­dised haemoglobin, which can give eyes a ‘racoon’ ring, even if you’ve slept a good eight hours,” she adds.

For best re­sults, ap­ply eye cream in a tap­ping mo­tion to in­crease cir­cu­la­tion and pre­vent ac­ci­den­tal tug­ging. Lastly, in­vest in a great pair of sun­glasses — they’re an ex­cel­lent line of de­fence and elim­i­nate the need for any eye makeup.
