Tips for applying eye products | wrinkles and dark circles | ENVIRON

June 8th, 2020

Fine lines around the eyes are usually created around the corners of the eyes, and look somewhat like the footprints of a crow!
This is because a groove is formed at a right angle to the orbicularis muscle (the muscle around the eye).


Tips for applying eye products

The skin around the eyes and mouth tends to be thinner, the result being that they become drier than the rest of that area.
In addition, since these muscles are more active for movements such as blinking, speaking, and eating, it’s more apparent to show fine lines on the skin.

Eye care products are specialized for treating the eye area. If you’re especially concerned about dryness and fine wrinkles, why not add them to your skincare routine?

When applying eye-specific cosmetics such as eye gel or eye cream, try to apply them from the corners of your eyes towards the inside.

  1. Apply from the corners of the eyes inwards to iron out small wrinkles.
  2. Apply the rest by gently stroking the eyelids with your fingertips.
  3. Apply the remainder between your eyebrows, if the product includes components such as Aldirrin. It can help smooth the frown lines too.

Since these are delicate areas, be aware of the application method, to further enhance the effect of eye-care cosmetics.


Recommended products for wrinkles around the eyes.

If your main concern is small fine wrinkles around your eyes, we recommend Environ Vita Peptide Eye Gel.

It is one of the most effective and high-selling Environ products, that keeps updating to more cutting-edge ingredients to constantly improve the benefits.

Environ Vita-Peptide eye gel is one of the most popular products

Vitamins A, C, and E, which are the usual main ingredients in Environ products, are included. In addition, there are the three peptides of Matrixyl® 3000, Argireline®, and Dermaxyl, and a new ingredient called Optim-Hyal™ that accelerates the production of hyaluronic acid (at the present time of 2020).

Matrixyl® 3000 has the benefit of promoting collagen and elastin production.

Argireline® is an effective component for frown lines, by relieving muscle tension.

In addition, Dermaxyl will enhance hydration and plump up the skin by increasing the production of ceramide.

It is recommended that you continue to use for about three months in order to see the optimal result.


The secret of dark circle under your eyes

Dark circles under the eyes are one of the most difficult skin problems to deal with. It can be caused by insufficient sleep, or pigmentation due to rubbing the eyes too much. Although concealer does not solve the root cause of dark circles, the Jane Iredale eye concealer called “Active Light”, a mineral makeup brand made from natural materials, can help to reduce their appearance through fading.

There are 6 types, depending on the condition of the dark circles under your eyes and your skin color.

Creams containing Vitamin C 

Creams containing Vitamin C can be an effective approach to use on bare skin.

Vitamin C suppresses melanin production, and has a clarifying effect, so it can assist to brighten the skin complexion and lighten pigmentation. It also helps with collagen production, which can be an advantage for reducing black circles under the eyes.

Environ C-Boost cream is essentially a product for pigmentation.

Environ C-Boost is a vitamin C concentrated cream. This cream is generally recommended for pigmentation problems. Although it is not the intended usage,  you can also use it beneath your eyes.

By patiently continuing to use it, my opinion is that the radiant effect of vitamin C will come to the fore. Dark circles can become clearer, and the skin becomes firmer under the eyes too.
However, the area around the eyes is so sensitive that vitamin C may sting. In that case, please stop using the cream. Make sure to always use it very carefully and gently around the eyes. Apply from the outer corners of your eyes inwards.


Another method is to “cool down” around the eyes.

The cooling of the skin cues the blood vessels to shrink, which increases the effect of the waste products being swept away, resulting in a refreshing look around the eyes.

This is an elimination method, that has an immediate effect on dark circles when you are short of sleep.
