Environ Youth EssentiA Vita Peptide Eye Gel is the eye product that I use on a daily basis, and it is by far one of the best eye products I have found. I favour a gel/serum texture as it absorbs quickly, doesn’t feel greasy and doesn’t cause puffiness. The benefit of such a lovely light texture is that you can apply this all over your eye lid and underneath the eye, right up to your lower lashes. I see so many people who have never applied any sort of product on the upper lid, this can lead to premature ageing and lead to drooping, heavy looking lids through sheer neglect.
Environ Youth EssentiA Vita Peptide Eye Gel (formerly known as C-quence Eye Gel) contains a variety of Vitamins, antioxidants, and peptides to help improve the appearance of fine lines and hydrate the skin around the eyes. Environ’s star ingredient is of course Vitamin A, in the form of Retinyl Palmitate, this is in low levels so won’t irritate the delicate eye area and helps normalise and repair skin cells.
Peptides have the ability to slow down ageing of the skin
The other stars of the show are of course “Peptides”, in the form of Matrixyl, Dermaxyl and Argireline. These trio stimulate Collagen and Elastin production, stimulate Cermamide production and relax facial tension to reduce lines and wrinkles (the Argireline does this). I have found that peptides have the ability to “SLOW down Ageing of the skin”, so cumulative, consistent use will build results.
What are Peptides? well they act as messengers between the cells and tell them to get on with the job of making Collagen and Elastin.
I recommend Skin Collagen Support by the Advanced Nutrition Programme to help support your healthy Collagen from the inside. Supplements are just as important (if not more) as your topical products as they are able to get to the Dermis, so do not dismiss them!
