If you've ever had a chemical peel, then you know why this beauty product is generally not used around the eyes. It stings like crazy!! And yet, it is around the eyes that we show aging first. So, how does one attack the wrinkles there?
Ole Henriksen, skin expert to the stars has launched a revolutionary new chemical peel specifically for the eye area. It's called, 'Truth is in the Eyes' ($65). And this one is strong, but also very gentle to the skin around the eyes. The before + after' photos tell the story.
A typical chemical peel, for instance, helps the skin to renew itself. In a sense, you are peeling away the old layers, like those unattractive dead skin cells, and revealing, smoother, younger-looking skin.
A glycolic peel is a favorite of many dermatologists, because its molecule size is able to offer the deepest penetration available. And Ole Henriksen's 'Truth is in the Eyes' peel contains glycolic acid along with another Alpha Hydroxy Acid, called, lactic acid. Together, the two effectively exfoliate the skin.
It's not easy trying to repair the aging eye area. The skin there is dry, thin, and very delicate. But Ole Henriksen believes his product is a first, and a real winner.
A chemical peel process involves a few simple steps: 1. Wash your face and dry. 2. Apply the glycolic solution on a cotton pad and wipe it across your face. 3. Leave it for a few minutes. 4. Rinse off with cold water.
'Truth is in the Eyes,' is even simpler. It's cream-based. You do not wash anything off.
1. Apply a thin layer around the eye area nightly* avoiding the lid, extend toward the temple area. 2. Leave to absorb, before applying your favorite OLEHENRIKSEN eye creme.***You may choose to use product in the am, but should not be worn under extended exposure to sunlight. An SPF is strongly recommended for day use.
There you have it. Very easy. We think it's worth a try, especially following this long, very hot, very sunny summer.
