Summer Eyes

by Michelle McComb July 17, 2018

It’s officially summer, which means long days and late nights. And for most of us, late nights mean puffy eyes and dark circles. Even just one night with less than 7 hours of sleep can leave me looking a bit droopy under the eyes, so I turn to our bestselling Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel. Here are some tips to stay bright-eyed all summer long:

Peptide power. Eyeseryl and argireline (say that 5 times fast) have your back. Or your bags, that is. This power couple helps reduce the look of dark circles and visible puffiness. And guess what? They have starring roles in our Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel, alongside hydrating squalane of course.

Chill out. If you’re prone to puffiness (and let’s face it, who isn’t after backyard barbecues filled with salty foods like chips and hot dogs), a major pro-tip is to keep your Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel in the fridge. The cool temp will not only feel amazing on a hot day, but it will help depuff even faster.

Smooth it out. To prevent fine lines and crepiness, never pull on your skin while applying your products around your eyes. Always use your ring finger to gently pat product around the eyes. It’s your weakest finger so you won’t risk applying too much pressure. Start tapping product below the eye near the inner corner and move out and up around the brow bone.

When applying any skincare products, it’s always best to move upward to avoid pulling downwards on skin (gravity already has you covered on downward tugging – it doesn’t need any help).

I’m what I like to call a beauty “holy grail seeker”, which means I own 150+ nude/pink shades of lipstick and am still on the hunt for the best one. When it comes to skincare, I believe in real ingredients that actually work, not marketing fluff. In my free time, I perform in musicals and play Pickleball. Previously of ipsy and K&L Wines.

Ever wonder why every time the season changes your skin totally freaks out? Well, colder weather brings drier air that can make keeping your skin supple and hydrated a challenge. Even those of us with oily skin find that suddenly, our skin has more micro-climates than San Francisco. Couple the natural shifts in temperature with heating systems to keep us toasty and our skin’s moisture just doesn’t stand a chance.

We all know that our skin is the first line of defense against the outside world, but did you know that this protective barrier also has a protective barrier of its own? That’s right, it’s your skin’s natural moisture barrier, which is an important part in keeping you—and your skin—healthy. And we’re all about healthy skin at Biossance.
