Did you know that sensitive skin ages faster? In sensitive skin, wrinkles may appear 3 years earlier while loss of firmness can appear up to 10 years earlier. Skin inflammation is an increasingly common problem, made worse by internal and external factors (stress, free radicals, UV, pollution). This stress activates and causes inflammation of nerve fibres that release pro-inflammatory substances. These substances cause inflammation of cells in both the epidermis and the dermis, these cells then go on to release inflammatory mediators that lead to the degradation of supporting fibres in the dermis (collagen and elastin). For those with sensitive skin this is particularly pronounced due to the nerve fibres being much more active. The skins ageing process is then accelerated as a result. Wrinkles develop earlier and skin loses firmness.
To target the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes for those with sensitive skin, La Roche Posay has developed Redermic [R] Eyes, their first Retinol enriched skincare for sensitive eyes. With 0.1% Pure Retinol (the gold standard in treating wrinkles), to smooth wrinkles, tighten the eye area and boost cellular renewal. 0.2% Exclusive Retinol Boosting Complex Retinyl Linoleate & Adensosine to enhance the effectiveness of the Retinol to penetrate the skin, and caffeine which stimulates micro-circulation in the eye area to reduce dark circles.
Results in a self assessment study of 52 women, noted that immediately after application, eye contour appeared lifted, dark circles appeared corrected, wrinkles appeared smoothed and the area around the eye looked refreshed and luminous.
La Roche Posay Redermic [R] Eyes is available at selected Sam McCauley Chemists nationwide and online at www.sammccauley.com
