For Your Eyes Only

"The eyes are the windows of the soul."William Shakespeare

Our eyes indeed say a lot about us, revealing our emotions, our confidence level, and often our age. Unfortunately, the delicate area around the eye is one of the first to show signs of aging.  This is why I get asked a lot about the best product and the best routine to target the eyes...and it's also why we developed our Restoracell Eye Cream - a special formula that not only harnesses the power of copper peptide but is also blended with ingredients specifically targeting reducing puffiness and adding moisture.

Factors like stress, UV radiation, allergies, genetics, long workdays, and fluid retention are just some of the culprits contributing to dark circles, crow’s feet, and puffy eyes. Years of applying cosmetics and other makeup containing a high concentration of dyes and metal salts can also produce extensive damage and sagging.

Peptides are one of the most effective ways to fix wrinkles, under-eye bags, and dark circles. Restoracell has combined three high-performing peptides, GHK-Cu (copper peptide), Didpeptide 2, and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, into GHK-Cu Advanced,  carefully formulated to smooth and repair the delicate skin around the eye.

Three High-Performing Peptides (in one jar) Target Crow’s Feet, Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes.

GHK-Cu (copper peptide) reduces fine lines and puffy eyes by stimulating blood vessel and nerve growth and increasing collagen and elastin. In addition, studies have shown that copper peptides also increase the benefits of the body’s natural tissue-building process. Furthermore, copper peptides contain antioxidants that minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by repairing damaged skin cells and have anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe the skin.

Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 improves skin elasticity, firmness, and tone by increasing collagen and hyaluronic acid. One of the exciting characteristics of this peptide is its ability to suppress the production of excess interleukins, the chemical messengers which trigger the body’s acute inflammatory response. Excessive interleukins can negatively affect the skin’s support system, comprised of collagen, elastin, and other proteins, and lead to wrinkles, sagging, and uneven skin tone.

Studies have shown that by slowing or suppressing the production of excess interleukins, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 can inhibit the unnecessary inflammatory response and glycation damage. 

The third peptide in our GHK-Cu Advanced is Dipeptide-2 which helps with the appearance of eye puffiness. It does this by promoting lymphatic circulation and drainage while strengthening capillaries.

How do these three powerful peptides work together?

And there's more

The eye cream doesn't stop there. While the powerful peptides are working at the cellular level to reduce fine lines and puffy eyes, the super hydrating natural Almond Oil included in the Eye/Lash GHK-Cu Advanced increases skin moisture. 

According to Dermatologist Loretta Ciraldo, M.D, almond oil can increase skin moisture levels for hours after a single application. A recent study also showed that almond oil gives skin an SPF of about 4.5, so it is UV protective and can help prevent skin darkening from UVA.

Many people can't tolerate sunscreen under their eyes, so almond oil can help lighten dark circles in part from its UV-protective benefits.

In addition, almond oil also contains retinol, vitamin E, and vitamin K, which can keep the delicate skin under your eyes smooth without irritating it.  And, because almond oil is rich in linoleic and oleic fatty acids, it can help replenish and strengthen the skin under the eye to reduce dark circles.

 

Best Eye Care Routine:

I recommend to customers to start with the eye cream for the first 12 weeks of use.  Use twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.  The eyes and surrounding areas are sensitive, and the eye cream is formulated to take this into account.  After the first 12 weeks, you can add in the serum with more potent level of peptides for increased results as needed.
