Fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, aging lines - no matter what you call them none of us like them! So how do we help prevent them? First, we should understand why they show up.

The delicate, thin skin around your eye is called the Periorbital area.This fine layer of skin isn’t supported like the rest of your face with a fatty tissue layer. Without the support of thicker, stronger structure the collagen in the epidermis of the periorbital area breaks down faster. To help prevent premature breakdown of the collagen within our skin we have to nourish those tissues and cells with amino acids and emollients that our skin can not only absorb but convert and use to repair damage within the skin.

Collagen is one of the most plentiful natural proteins in our bodies, making up a big part of our skin, hair and nails. Considered a polypeptide, collagen contains a mixture of amino acids like Proline, which are found in the connective tissues of our organs (the skin is our largest organ!). To ensure that the collagen doesn't fail us and leave us looking like a prune, we need to incorporate Proline Amino Acid's into our skincare. 

Tamarind Seed Extract is a natural form of Hyaluronic Acid which helps to soothe the skin while providing essential hydration and emollients to the deepest layers of skin, allowing for better cell respiration and turn-over. That leads to younger looking, acting and feeling skin! Tamarind Seeds have been used for centuries for their incredible benefits not only on the skin but all over the body! Check this out:

Cleansing is so critically important to our skin health. Our moisturizers, SPF, and makeup can trap free radicals on top of the skin – which is beneficial to help prevent our skin from their damage but means that these free radicals are still ON our skin at the end of the day. There are two types of cleansing –a chemistry based reaction and physical exfoliation. Both of these types of cleansing are crucial.We use ingredients like AHA (Alpha-Hydroxy Acids) to break down the chemical composition of our topical products and the oil our skin produces.Physical exfoliation not only helps to slough off dead skin cells but ensures that pollutants and environmental irritants are also washed away.

So to help prevent those pesky fine lines? Nourish, Hydrate and Cleanse.
