Non-surgical solutions for lifting the eye area

The skin around the eyes is 10x thinner than the rest of the face, so it's an area that is more prone to premature ageing. Consumers today are looking for solutions for ageing eyes, but is there an effective alternative to surgery to achieve a measurable lift?

Why the skin around our eyes is prone to premature ageing

With the skin around the eye area being thinner and containing less elastin, oil glands and subcutaneous fat, the eye area is prone to dryness and premature skin ageing. This delicate skin is more susceptible to the environmental and lifestyle factors that cause up to half of visible skin ageing.

Causes of premature ageing around the eyes

Couple the genetic factors with eye fatigue from constant technology use that accelerates the weakening of optic muscles, causing eyelids to sag; Screen time-incuded sleep deprivation that hinders skin's ability to restore collagen, impacting the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and drooping eyelids. Along with the constant stress and strain of continued eye movement that puckers the skin around the eyes, it's no surprise that consumers are looking for a lifted look for tired and ageing eyes!

Non-invasive alternatives to an eye lift (blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that involves removing excess skin from the eyelids. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, blepharoplasty was the second most popular cosmetic surgery in 2022, after rhinoplasty. If you're looking for a non-surgical solution to lifting the eyes, try Phyto Nature Lifting Eye Cream - a transformative eye cream with potent peptides and phytoactives that delivers a more lifted look.

The importance of choosing the right eye cream

Here's an eye opening revelation; many eye creams aren't formulated for use on the eyelid. This is significant because the eyelid is often the first place we start to see signs of sagging - so using a product that is safe and effective for both the lid and the under-eye, is essential for getting an optimal lift.

Dermalogica's Phyto Nature Lifting Eye Cream is a game-changer in the world of lifting eye care. Specifically designed to target the delicate skin around the eyes, it delivers a measurable lift after just 1 use* with a potent blend of peptides, plant extracts, and hydrating ingredients.

*Obtained during independent clinical testing of 31 people, 2 applications/day for 8 weeks.

Key ingredients in Phyto Nature Lifting Eye Cream

  • To lift & smooth: Adaptogenic Astragalus, Electric Daisy Flower + CoQ10, and Cassava Extract
  • To re-densify & firm: Quinoa Seed Extract, Acetyl Tetrapeptides-9 and Carnosine

How to enhance the lifting effect of Phyto Nature Lifting Eye Cream

To relax the eye muscles and achieve a more lifted look, give your eyes some extra attention with some simple massage movements, either with your fingers or add a tool, such as an eye wand or Gua Sha to enhance the movements further. Apply a rice-grain sized amount of Phyto Nature Lifting Eye Cream to the under-eye and eye lid, massage gently in an upwards motion - being mindful to not tug or press too hard on the delicate eye area.
