It’s a well observed sociological fact that by playing up or toning down our eye contact, without the need for spoken words, we’re able to convey emotions and engage our conversational partner. Infamously, a maiko played by actress Ziyi Zhang in the movie, ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ can only be considered ‘ready’ if she managed to stop a man in his tracks with a single glance. So before heading out the door tonight, consider these latest pepper perfecting products designed to transform those delicate areas around your eyes, to put that enviable twinkle right back where they belong.
Mila Moursi Cryo Serum/Ice Cube Infusion
I’ve seen some crazily innovative beauty treatments in my day, but this one probably take the cake. Mila Moursi’s Cryo Serum is a freezable, brightening product said to repair, regenerate, and hydrate the skin.Billed as a “spa-worthy treatment designed for at-home use” the theory behind it is that the ice-cold application works as a form of cryotherapy which provides anti-aging effects while stimulating the skin and boosting circulation, especially for the undereye areas. These are literally pretty pricey “serum-sicles” that you pop one into the freezer before use, wait for it to get icy, unwrap it and slide it into one of the enclosed gauze sachets. Proceed to rub it over your cleansed and toned face in circular motions, until the cube is completely melted.Black Currant, Raspberry and Strawberry Extracts further aid in combating puffiness and dehydration to lift and plump the periorbital skin for a sparkling glow.

Utilizing free radical-fighting coenzyme Q 10 and cranberry extract along with moisturizing avocado oil and shea butter, this scientifically proven skin savior visibly softens wrinkles such as Crow’s feet and reduces the appearance of undereye fine lines with regular use. A small splurge no doubt, but the pampering goes a long way.

Whether as a standalone treatment on as part of the Eye Illuminator Program combined with Quattro Toning Undereye and Sygma Eye Lift. Revitalift Eye is definitely the A-lister preferred method to address undereye woes caused by aging and stress. The procedure is simple and fast. Tiny drops of pure hyaluronic acid are skillfully infused into the skin and distributed evenly throughout the treatment area via a series of microinjections, resuscitating tired-looking skin by restoring its physiological function and optimizing cellular activity. Improvements are apparent even after the first treatment, but a primary course of 3 to 6 sessions done at 3 to 4 weekly intervals is often recommended in order to build up your skin’s reserves for optimal bio-revitalization and longer-lasting results. Maintenance treatments are typically done between 2 to 4 times per year depending on your intrinsic aging, how well you take care of your skin, and the type of lifestyle you lead.
