Fact: The skin around the eyes is 10 times thinner than that of the face and has very few oil glands. Combined with blinking 10,000 times a day, squinting and smiling, this area is the first to show the signs of aging. You really need to treat this tender area by using an eye cream every night.
We love our Synergy Eye Cream – it’s a high-performance eye cream that counteracts the most critical concerns of the delicate eye area with a 4-phase age-fighting strategy: Line-relaxing Myoxinal™, free radical-neutralizing Astaxanthin, Cell-youthening Dermaxyl™ and Hyaluronic Acid “Lifting” Spheres.
The 4-phase age-fighting strategy:
Line-relaxing Myoxinal™ – A low molecular weight Oligopeptide from Okra (Hibiscus), addresses both mechanical and biological factors of aging. Micro tension lines caused by repeated facial expressions, gravity or simply age are safely and effectively relaxed in minutes…
Free Radical-neutralizing Astaxanthin – The most powerful antioxidant in the carotenoid family. Up to 10 times stronger free radical protection than beta carotene and 500 times more than Vitamin E, this red carotenoid delivers powerful protection against lipid peroxidation and oxidative damage, protecting cells, cell membranes and tissues from destructive aging surface radicals. Increases skin’s ability to resist environmental stripping of skin nutrients and reduces puffiness and erythema. Prevents and reduces presence of UV-induced wrinkles resulting in firmer, more elastic skin with increased moisture, while reducing the risk of skin cancer.
Cell-youthening Dermaxyl™ – A patented oligopeptide and ceramide blend inspires older cells to communicate like younger cells. When cells communicate more fully, repair cells can focus on areas of skin damage caused by aging processes. The result is enhanced firmness, better moisture retention, and visible easing of deep wrinkles. Clinical studies testing 24 female subjects aged 42 to 66 with a once daily application of 2% Dermaxyl™ for 56 days showed up to 36% reduction in visible wrinkle volume while wrinkle depth lessened up to 27%.
Hyaluronic Acid “Lifting” Spheres – Fill aging expression lines and crow’s feet from within. Resembling microscopic sponges, these dehydrated spheres of Hyaluronic Acid (the body’s primary moisture-holding molecule) penetrate into the skin’s surface where they absorb water evaporating from the skin (Trans Epidermal Water Loss). As each sphere swells with moisture, lines and wrinkles lift from within. Skin is smoother and appears more youthful for hours.
This ultra-softening eye cream sends moisture deep into skin’s surface, yet is so lightweight it won’t weigh down the fragile eye area, cause makeup to run, or seep into the eyes causing unnecessary puffiness. Leaves skin feeling noticeably silky smooth and more resilient; recommended for all skin types in need of visible anti-aging results.
