Health Benefits at a Glance:
The skin around the eyes is very thin and delicate compared to the skin on other parts of the body. Because the skin around the eyes is exposed to various internal and external factors that can damage the skin matrix, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes are often more easily developed than elsewhere on your body. Cucumber Hydra Peptide Eye Cream contains a formula with a unique combination of natural ingredients that can support the strength, suppleness, and elasticity of the skin around the eyes, and help inhibit the development of fine lines and wrinkles, allowing for a younger look and feel.
Why it Works:
The skin around the eyes is much thinner and much more delicate than compared to the skin on the rest of the body. This makes it especially vulnerable to such factors as sun exposure, air pollutants, and advanced glycation end products.
These external and internal factors can break down the skin matrix in the skin around the eyes. For instance, these factors can damage elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid in the skin. These compounds play a big role in providing the skin with strength, suppleness, and elasticity.
Since the skin around the eyes is more delicate, it can make sense to take extra steps to support the skin matrix on this part of the skin to maintain youthful-looking skin around the eyes.
Research has demonstrated that several topically applied compounds can specifically target and support the skin around the eyes.
One of these natural ingredients is cucumber extract. Cucumber extract has soothing, restorative, and cooling properties. Moreover, it also has powerful hydrating and antioxidant effects.
The Science Behind the Product:
Two types of peptides in this formula (Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7) can stimulate the synthesis of collagen. Furthermore, it can also inhibit the breakdown of collagen. This helps smoothening and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Moreover, Vitamin A and Vitamin E also provide additional support for both the superficial and deeper skin layers. This helps in rejuvenating the skin as well as curtailing the damaging effects that sunlight (UV-rays) can have on skin.
