While most of us are diligent with cleansing daily, religious with slathering on our serums and never skip our moisturiser step, we fail to give the same attention to our eye area. But since the skin around your eyes is extremely delicate and thin, and it’s the first place to show signs of ageing, you not only need to apply formulas tailored to this sensitive area, but you must give it plenty of TLC from as early as your twenties.
That’s where these Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Eye Serum come in.
Don’t be fooled by their size – there are plenty of skin-loving ingredients packed into each of these single dose capsules, which will work in more ways than one to improve the look and feel of your eye area. Here are four reasons to add these capsules to cart, immediately.
#1 / They improve your skin’s barrier function
As you age, the delicate skin around your eyes becomes thinner, which compromises its ability to retain moisture and protect your skin from environmental factors and ageing. Ceramides are a crucial component in your skin for maintaining its lipid barrier function (they represent about 40 to 50 per cent of the essential lipids in the top-most layer of skin, known as the stratum corneum), but as you age the ceramide levels in skin rapidly declines. These capsules contain an Enhanced Ceramide Lipid Complex (ECLX) that combines ceramides 1, 3 and 6 to help support skin’s own natural protective barrier against moisture loss, and helps to retexturise, exfoliate and smooth skin. The skin around the eye area becomes strengthened and healthier-looking.
#2 / They boost moisture in the eye area
A hydrated eye area is brighter and more radiant in appearance. Packed with a botanical complex technology containing alfalfa extract, lipids from olives, and hydrocarbons from coconut oil, Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Eye Serum formula helps to increase hydration levels, soothe skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The addition of antioxidant-rich vitamin E helps to fight free radicals and keep skin moisturised for longer.
#3 / They fight signs of ageing
While improving hydration levels and the skin’s barrier function contribute to your eye’s ability to fight the signs of ageing, these capsules contain even more ingredients that will improve skin firmness while smoothing the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet. Tsubaki oil, which is rich in vitamins A, B, D and E and omegas 3, 6 and 9, works to improve elasticity; retinyls has been added to enhance skin’s clarity for a more even tone; and anti-inflammatory hops extract helps to increase the brightness and radiance of the eye area.
#4 / They come in the perfect size
Knowing how much product to use in every step of your skin care routine is hard. That’s why these capsules are ideal – each one contains the exact amount you should be using. To use, twist the cap and remove, then squeeze the eye serum onto your fingertips. Starting at the outer corner of the eye and moving inward to the nose, upward to the brow bone and back to the outer corner, gently pat the formula around the eye area with your ring finger. Repeat the circular motion a few times until all of the product has sunk in.
