Caffeinated Eye Cream Has Everyone Buzzing
The Dermatology Review says, “There are a number of essential items that are part of any skin care kit, and one of those items is an eye cream with caffeine.” We couldn’t agree more.
The area around the eyes is one of the first places to show signs of aging. The windows to the soul are also the windows to your years, the facial equivalent of tree rings. That’s because the skin in this area is thinner, has fewer oil glands and less collagen than other areas of the body. This vulnerable area is further undermined during the aging process as cell turnover slows and networks of elastin and collagen begin to loosen and degrade.
Dark circles are another problem in this area. These can have a number of causes including aging, genetics, lack of sleep, stress, poor circulation or weakened blood vessels.
Caffeine has unique properties to combat all these issues. So aside from being our favorite morning brain igniter in a cup, caffeine applied topically is the ultimate wake-up for eyes.
The Powerful Perks Of Caffeine
Caffeine has potent antioxidant properties, which help protect cells from the age-accelerating effects of UV radiation.
Caffeine is an anti-inflammatory and helps to draw excess fluid from cells, which reduces puffiness.
Caffeine constricts blood vessels, which results in an immediate lifting and firming effect.
Caffeine increases circulation and oxygenation in blood to help reduce the appearance of dark circles.
Caffeine is hydrophilic meaning it helps skin absorb and retain beneficial ingredients like flavonoids. It also helps hydrate this delicate area.
Caffeine is an active ingredient in Vivant’s Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream.
In addition to a shot of eye-opening caffeine, Wink buzzes with additional rejuvenating ingredients. Vitamin A propionate, the most effective non-prescription retinoid available, encourages cell regeneration and plumping of thin skin. Peptides stimulate the production of collagen. Kojic acid is a natural pigment inhibiter and brightener. Whole leaf aloe soothes, hydrates and heals delicate skin. Oat extracts are anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Antioxidant grape seed oil nourishes and hydrates.
Use Wink morning and night to look like you got your best sleep ever every day.
