Your Under Eye

One of the first places where visible signs of aging begin to emerge is around your eyes.  The delicate skin in this area is extremely thin – becoming even thinner as you age.  The tissue under the eye contains minimal subcutaneous fat, collagen, elastin, and blood vessels.  The thinness of the eyelid and eye area results in a membrane that is susceptible to stretching and wrinkling due to cross linked collagen fibers losing their flexibility and strength.

Thinning skin and loss of fat and collagen also make the skin appear thinner and more translucent so that the reddish-blue blood vessels under the eyes become more obvious and contribute to another cause for concern – the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.  While dark circles have a hereditary component, external factors such as exposure to pollutants, topical irritants, allergies, and sunlight also play a significant role by triggering the inflammatory processes in the skin which can also trigger puffy eyes.  All of these factors contribute to the weakening of the blood vessel network causing leakage of blood and darkening of the eye area.  The irritation of the eye area can lead to the release of inflammatory mediators.  These mediators contribute to the formation of edema which is the presence of excess amounts of fluid in the subcutaneous spaces around the eye, causing the swelling or puffiness around the eye area.  Puffiness of the eye area is caused by poor blood circulation, which may involve increased capillary pressure and permeability.

ONLY YOURx Eye Care line comprehensively addresses the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles by offering products that protect, repair, renew, nourish and hydrate the delicate eye area.
