Rubbing your eyes, sure. Holding a cold or hot compress over them, absolutely. But scrubbing beneath the baby blues? That has never been an option. And yet, maybe it should be.
Dirt, excess oil, pollution and dead skin cells can all build up under your eyes just as they can on any other part of your face. In fact, they can even layer on, trapping all of the aforementioned gunk onto your skin, preventing oxygen and Vitamin D-rich sunlight from working its natural magic, stagnating your blood circulation and halting cellular turnover. And what you’re left with, fine lines, a dull skin tone and even, tiny white keratin cysts called milia and none of it is attractive.
Eliminating these instant agers is the clear choice. Opting for an exfoliating under eye product and integrating it into your weekly or possibly, daily routine is an even better one.
Despite their sometimes harsh-sounding names, chemical exfoliants or acid-based items, like Beauty RX by Dr. Schultz Gentle Exfoliating Eye Cream are your best bet for banishing gucky buildup and stimulating cellular turnover in this delicate area. These creams, toners and lotions contain alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), beta hydroxy acid (BHA) or glycolic acid to help soften and reduce unwanted crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles.
With the BeautyRx Gentle Exfoliating Eye Cream, glycolic acid treats the area with pH-adjusted and buffered glycolic, while smoothing and reviving tired, dull-looking skin and decreasing the appearance of fine lines and under-eye dark circles. Once the cream has worked its magic, your under-eye skin will have a fresh look and baby soft feel. The clean rejuvenated area will aslos now easily absorb your hydrating, balancing and/or healing daytime and nighttime face and under-eye creams to create a more youthful, brighter looking you.
Beauty RX by Dr. Schultz Gentle Exfoliating Eye Cream is $80 for 15 ml, available online at www.theshoppingchannel.com.
