The skin around our eyes is a study in extremes. It’s subjected to the constant strain generated by our body’s fastest, most frequently used muscles. In fact, we make over 100,000 eye movements per day, many of which happen in less than 1/100th of a second – literally quicker than a blink of the eye! The problem? The skin around the eyes is also the body’s most delicate. 10 times thinner than the skin on the rest of the face, it’s the first place signs of ageing appear. Add to that the hours we spend squinting at our screens each day, it’s not surprising to hear that premature ageing around the eyes can add up to 20 years to a person’s perceived age. Even when you are asleep your eyes can be moving rapidly in REM sleep.

Give your eyes a much-needed boost: Building on the success of Dermalogica’s BioLumin-C Serum, winner of the Bauer Beauty Awards Best Serum 2019, this formula delivers the same brightening and firming power of the original serum – in a lightweight formula optimised to help fortify the delicate eye area. This supercharged serum delivers Dermalogica’s ultra-stable Vitamin C complex where skin needs it most, brightening and firming to address fine lines and wrinkles at their source. The result: skin around the eyes is brighter, firmer and more resilient.

Caroline Parker, Dermalogica New Zealand’s Head of Education, says “We are so excited about the BioLumin-C Eye Serum launch. It features the same, highly stable Vitamin C complex from BioLumin-C Serum, and also includes a skin firming peptide, Palmitoyl Tripeptide and Tremella mushroom extract to help treat this delicate eye area specifically.” “These advanced ingredients will help brighten and firm the eye area, and help fight the signs of premature skin ageing caused by daily eye movements and environmental stress.”

Ingredient features and benefits: Vitamin C complex delivers a unique, highly stable synergy of two Vitamin C molecules to fight oxidative stress, brighten, and firm. Key ingredients include:

• Arjun Tree Extract, rich in polyphenols, boosts skin’s resilience and provides antioxidant benefits.
• Micro-Algae Extract energises, smooths and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
• Tremella Mushroom locks in moisture and supports skin resistance.
• Salvia Hispanica (Chia Seed) Oil, rich in antioxidants, moisturises and helps quench free radicals.
• Poria Mushroom helps reveal skin’s natural luminosity.
