Our eyes, both inside and out, are extraordinarily delicate and susceptible to ageing. Many of us notice fine lines, crepey skin and a general loss of elasticity as some of the first visible signs of ageing around the eyes.
In terms of skincare, the eye area requires a very light touch during cleansing and makeup removal; adequate hydration from quality skincare products; and daily sun protection (opt for a gentle mineral sunscreen or makeup with an SPF).
Use an oil-based makeup remover to dissolve stubborn eye makeup and reduce the amount of rubbing you need to do. The latest makeup remover cloths are also effective at removing eye makeup with only water. Be as gentle as possible, and be sure to remove all traces of makeup around the eyes; leftover particles can irritate an dehydrate the skin.
Sunglasses are also an excellent tool to protect your eyes and the surrounding skin - bonus: they prevent crows feet from squinting.
When choosing skincare for your eye area, specially formulated eye creams are your best bet. Regular face creams can be too heavy, and many facial products are too irritating. Look for a formula that is:
- Ultra-gentle (with no alcohol, essential oils, or irritating ingredients)
- Antioxidant-rich to protect against ageing
- Highly moisturising to nourish the skin
The Adashiko Solution
We've dreamt of creating an eye cream for many years now, and after rigorous testing and development, it's finally here!
Our targeted formula has been carefully formulated to brighten, hydrate, and smooth the undereye area.
We've selected only the best ingredients: ultra-nourishing plant-based extracts moisturise and soothe the delicate skin around the eyes, while potent antioxidants prevent and minimise the signs of ageing.
Vitamin C: A powerhouse antioxidant that protects against environmental damage, evens out skin tone, brightens, improves skin hydration, and prevents ageing.
Cupuacu Butter: An intensely nourishing natural plant emollient with a protective antioxidant effect.
Vitamin B: Also known as Niacinamide, Vitamin B3 is a skin wonder that brightens skin, reduces fine lines, improves skin texture, and preserves moisture.
Vitamin E: A nourishing, super antioxidant that protects against environmental stressors and fights the signs of ageing.
- Instantly revives and refreshes tired eyes.
- Plant-based moisturisers nourish and hydrate the skin.
- Minimises the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.
- Can assist in reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
- Powerful antioxidants protect against the signs of ageing.
All the hard work of a quality eye cream can be undone with careless application that drags and pulls the skin around the eyes. Always be as gentle as possible when you apply anything around your eyes. As a rule of thumb, if you can see the skin moving and stretching, there's too much pressure.
Alongside our eye cream, we've included a luxurious quartz application spatula to help reduce undereye puffiness while refreshing and soothing the eye area. With a light hand, the spatula glides over the eye area and provides a hygienic way to apply your eye cream.
If you're into crystals, you'll know that clear quartz is one of the most healing crystals in the world and is highly energetic.
Keep your Adashiko Silk Repair Eye Cream and the application spatula in the fridge for an extra refreshing application.
