DARK CIRCLES & BAGS UNDER THE EYES
The dark circles are created when the blood vessels below the eyes become dilated or when congestion puts pressure on the blood vessels. Unhealthy blood vesicles under the eyes lose their natural elasticity and swell larger to and press against the thin skin of the eyes and are therefore responsible for the dark circles. BAGS UNDER THE EYES however, can be caused by poor skin elasticity, excessive salt intake and pollutants, such as smoke.
Puffiness is caused by poor circulation and leads to the build-up of fluid outside the blood vesicles (veins and capillaries) and into the surrounding areas that is not properly cleared and returned back in to the blood vesicles by the lymphatic system. Water retention may occur if pressure inside the capillaries changes. Water (fluid) retention is also possible if something occurs that makes the capillary walls too leaky. If something goes wrong with capillary pressure or capillary wall permeability (wall becomes too leaky), excess liquid (fluid) will be released into the tissue spaces between cells. If too much fluid is released more and more of it will remain in the tissues, rather than returning to the capillaries, resulting in swelling and water logging (water retention). The lymphatic system - which consists of a network of vessels throughout the body, drains this fluid from tissues and empties it back into the bloodstream. Sometimes, if the lymphatic system is congested, there may be something wrong with the rate at which fluid is returned back into the bloodstream - fluid will remain in the tissues, causing swelling.
WRINKLES AND EYE SAGING
Age is the biggest single contributor to the deterioration of the collagen and elastin around the delicate eye area. Daily environmental pollutants, smoking, poor health and various medications can speed up the process of ageing. Wrinkles are inevitable as the supporting skin begins to sage and crease, the familiar look of crow's feet and deep set wrinkles become evident.
Advances in science have indicated it is possible to slow down the signs of ageing using peptides to support the health of collagen and elastin and reduce free radical damage with antioxidants. Getting rid of bags and dark circles under the eyes involves regulating inflammation and fluid retention, as well as improving the health of blood vessels to constrict the swelling.**
Applying to slightly wet skin is important as this will trap the moisture under the serum. The moisturising agents in the serum, evening primrose oil and Shea butter, will prevent the moisture from evaporating leading to excellent hydrating and moisturisation.
