Optoderm Eye Serum
A concentrated serum to help address under eye puffiness and dark circles
Sagging eyelids, dark circles and bags under the eyes are caused by complex interactions. The skin around the eyes, which is already very thin, becomes even thinner as we age. Fatigue, sun damage and aging weaken the collagen and elastin matrix and cause the skin to lose elasticity. If blood circulation is sluggish in skin capillaries, they become clogged and the pressure build-up has a damaging effect on the already weakened connective tissue. Insufficient supply of oxygen and ongoing inflammation due to high levels of reactive oxygen species and increased activity of proteolytic enzymes (such as collagenase and elastase) contribute to the degradation of the collagen and elastin matrix. The consequences are visible dark circles and eye puffiness.
A complex of carefully-purified natural soy and rice peptides protect the collagen and elastin matrix in this delicate area. Biopeptide matrikines reinforce firmness and tone of the eye area and additional carefully chosen actives assist the microcirculation to reduce bags and dark circles under the eyes.

How to use:
Apply once a day, preferably at night. Begin by thoroughly cleansing the skin and allow to evaporate dry. We recommend the use of one of our micellar cleansers, so as not to leave any soap residues on the skin.
Apply small drops to the entire eye area, including the eyelid. Be careful to avoid direct eye contact. Lightly spread the product to cover the skin in a thin layer. A single drop goes a long way.
Allow the serum to absorb for a couple of minutes before applying moisturiser and/or other serums. A “warming”sensation is normal as the serum penetrates and starts to work.
