Why You Should Incorporate An Eye Cream into Your Routine
“The skin around the eyes is up to 10 times thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face and is particularly sensitive to sun exposure, environmental pollutants, and glycation,” says Dr. Goldfaden. He continues to share that “as we age, this area displays signs of aging up to 20 percent faster due to its thinness, reduced elasticity, firmness, and oil production.” Moreover, its limited ability to absorb active ingredients and protect against environmental stressors makes it prone to developing the deepest wrinkles.
Dr. Goldfaden emphasizes the importance of addressing this fragile skin early on, advising that "everyone should start using an eye cream/treatment by their mid-twenties." He continues to share that “compromised barrier function and circulatory issues are key factors contributing to common concerns like dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. Therefore, integrating specialized eye treatments is crucial to attain the best possible results.”
Introducing Our New Radiance Restoring Eye Treatment
Introducing Eye Defy, Goldfaden MD’s latest breakthrough treatment, meticulously crafted to rejuvenate and transform delicate under-eye skin. This innovative solution aims to plump, hydrate, and reduce the visible signs of aging, promoting the appearance of well-rested eyes. Formulated with a blend of powerhouse ingredients such as Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, and Squalane, Eye Defy boasts a transformative blend—enhanced by the remarkable Peptide Complex, a fundamental component that plays a pivotal role in combating fine lines and wrinkles.
Peptides, composed of chains of amino acids—the essential building blocks of proteins—stand as the cornerstone of this revolutionary formula. Renowned as the gold standard in anti-aging, Peptides work diligently to bolster collagen and elastin synthesis. This crucial mechanism significantly diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while simultaneously enhancing skin firmness and resilience.
How does Eye Defy Differ from Our Best-Seller, Bright Eyes?
Eye Defy and Bright Eyes each cater to distinct needs, offering tailored solutions for comprehensive eye care. Eye Defy stands as an advanced anti-aging nighttime treatment specifically formulated to target fine lines, wrinkles, and overall rejuvenation of delicate under-eye skin.
“At night, our bodies undergo intense repair and regeneration in a state known as ‘recovery mode.’” states Dr. Goldfaden. Research indicates that between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m., cell production can double, with deep sleep from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. potentially tripling cell turnover. This period allows for enhanced circulation and oxygen flow, fostering a relaxed parasympathetic state due to the absence of external environmental stressors like sunlight and pollution. He continues to say that, “this natural restoration process encourages improved collagen production, the release of accumulated toxins, and heightened skin receptivity to active ingredients, ultimately optimizing the absorption of essential skin-enhancing elements.”
Eye Defy focuses on harnessing the power of a potent Peptide Complex, alongside Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, and Squalane, setting it apart as a powerhouse in combating signs of aging during the night.
Conversely, Bright Eyes was meticulously designed to diminish under-eye darkness, puffiness, and fine lines, promoting a luminous and youthful glow. Its advanced formula boasts ultra-light brightening and de-puffing abilities, courtesy of a potent blend of ingredients including Organic Red Tea, Arnica, Rice Bran Extracts, Pulverized Mica, and Hyaluronic Acid. While this treatment is recommended for both morning and nighttime use, it is particularly advantageous in the morning as a de-puffing agent and serves as an excellent primer before applying makeup.
The Formula that Makes Eye Defy Unique
Meadowfoam Seed Oil
This non-greasy, fast-absorbing, plant-based oil locks in moisture while leaving skin softer and smoother with each use.
Peptides (which are chains of amino acids, aka the building blocks of protein) are the gold standard in anti-aging to support collagen and elastin synthesis, thus reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin firmness and strength.
“Found in virtually all your body’s tissues, peptides are one of the chief building blocks of life. Peptides are essentially made up of a string of amino acids held together by tough bonds of nitrogen and carbon. The long amino acid chains known as proteins cannot penetrate your epidermis because of their molecular size, but peptides can, due to their shorter chain length. Once inside your epidermis, peptides act as messengers that send out signals that tell the receptors on your skin cells how they should perform.”
This form of hydration hero hyaluronic acid penetrates deeply into the dermis to attract and retain water. Its plumping and hydrating powers help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, promote a youthful appearance, and quench thirsty skin.
A naturally derived emollient, squalane softens and repairs dry skin, improves rough and uneven texture, and seals in moisture.
