The most important thing standing between you and a glowing eye area is hydration. The skin under your eyes is only a fraction as thick as the skin on the rest of your face, so it tends to lose moisture much faster. That means wrinkles, lines, and crows feet are much more likely to show up around the eyes.

The key to making your makeup look great and have your eye area pop is keeping it well hydrated with your Eye Recovery Serum. Utilizing gentle ingredients like Peppermint Oil and Milk Thistle extract, it will help deliver a heavy dose of hydration to your eye area to help achieve a much younger look.

When it comes to your skincare routine, some products are optional but eye serum is definitely not one of them. In a recent study, 70% of those surveyed admitted eyes are the first thing they notice about someones, which is all the more reason you need to focus on your eye area.

What happens if you don’t use or have stopped using your eye serum? Here are some of the worst symptoms that come from cutting out your eye care routine cold turkey.

Skin Texture Changes

If you’re skipping your eye serum, expect to notice some drastic changes in the look and feel of your eye area. Eye Serum provides nutrients, hydration and plumping to the eye area which helps mask crepey skin and fine lines. Because the skin around your eye area is so thin, you’ll notice negative impacts to this area far sooner that you would notice on any other part of your body.

To help make sure fine lines stay plumped and your undereye area looks hydrated, you need to make sure you’re using an Eye Recovery Serum at least twice a day, morning and night. This will help deliver peptides, antioxidants, and hydration to your eyes to help them look brighter and younger.

Sensitivity Issues

A woman in California went to see her doctor about a sensitivity she was feeling when she applied her eye makeup and concealer every day. The doctor was baffled until they determined the one change in her routine causing the sensitivity… she stopped using an eye serum a few weeks before.

When you stop using a skincare product cold-turkey, your skin can experience changes and withdrawals the same your body would from a substance. Stopping daily use of your Eye Recover Serum can result in sensitivity because the pH levels in this delicate area of skin are out of whack. An unbalanced pH level in the eye area can feel like stinging or burning when you touch the eye area but you can help relieve it by starting to apply your Eye Recovery Serum again twice a day.

You Look Tired

No matter how much sleep you did or didn’t get last night, there is no better way to look refreshed and rested than using a high-quality Eye Serum. If you’re altering your routine and skipping your eye care, expect for your eye area to react with dark circles, dryness, and sagging.

Products like our Eye Recovery Serum are packed with antioxidants which help to brighten the eye area and add life back to it. These antioxidants help to diminish puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines. Without it, your eye area is going to look darker, more wrinkled, and more tired, making you look much older than you really are. Using our Eye Recovery Serum twice daily is a safer and much more cost-effective option that using fillers like Botox to achieve a similar result.

Almost every woman in America wears some form of makeup everyday. We use it to express ourselves, feel confident and put together, and simply because we enjoy it. But if your makeup application isn’t as easy as it was years ago, chances are aging skin has something to do with it.

As we get older, wrinkles, creases, and dullness can all factor into how our makeup looks when we apply it. That’s why we decided to give you three easy tips to ensure your skin looks healthy and smooth so you can get that flawless, airbrushed look when you apply your makeup.

A Smooth Complexion

If you feel like you’re makeup isn’t blending but instead sits on the top of your face, you’ll need a little bit of help smoothing out your complexion.

For makeup that absorbs, glides on skin, and provides full coverage, you’ll need to pay special attention to your moisturizing habits. Ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and argan work to condition skin back to a softer and more supple feeling. This will make applying liquid or powders to your face much easier and accentuate wrinkles far less, which is why we included them in our Repair & Release Cream formulation.

Concealed Dark Circles

Many times, eye makeup application can be difficult to blend and that’s likely because you are experiencing dryness around your eyes. If your undereye area is dry,  you’ll be seeing creasing and caking when you apply your concealer.

This is because the dehydrated skin is accentuating your wrinkles, causing your makeup to look awful. For a quick and easy fix, apply your Eye Lift Serumabout 10 minutes before your makeup. This will give it time to absorb, working to lighten dark circles and reduce puffiness, while also hydrating skin for a smooth application.

Find The Right Formula

When it comes to skincare, skip anything that comes from Korea or China because you don’t’ really know what’s in it or how those products were tested. The testing methods in other countries (think animal testing!) can’t always be trusted and sadly, many companies are not transparent about what happens behind closed doors.

Instead, opt for skincare that is made in the USA so you can be confident that it’s safe and effective with homegrown ingredients. This will ensure you’re using quality products that were made with integrity and have trustworthy ingredients. Plus, we never test on animals!

We know the basics, stay away from lots of sugar, greasy foods, and processed foods, but do you know that some foods are going to directly result in dark circles?

Some foods are considered “allergenic” which means when you eat them, they can cause dark circles and swelling as a reaction to your body processing it. Some allergenic foods to steer clear of for bright eyes include items high in sodium and potassium. Instead, opt for healthy choices like grapes or broccoli to calm inflammation and fight darkness around the eye area.

You’ll want to choose a concealer that is heavy with pink or yellow undertones will actually help cover dark circles and brighten the color of the whole under eye area. You only need a small amount but make sure you blend it well with a small beauty blender or just your ring or middle finger.

Make sure to only apply it in 3 strategic places, your cheekbone, in the corners of your eyes and along the brow line. Avoid using it elsewhere to draw attention away from your eye area. Always start with a smaller amount so you don’t end up looking shiny (it’s easier to add more than to remove some). The highlighter will catch the light and provide a shimmer to brighten up your entire eye area!
