energize your eyes with the new! awaken peptide eye gel

energize your eyes with the new! awaken peptide eye gel

Written By: Janu Yasotharan

Puffy and swollen eyes can affect anyone. Whether it's due to lack of sleep, allergies, fluid retention (especially after salty meals), smoking, hereditary causes or even just aging, this skin care qualm is more common than you think. This puffiness often comes hand in hand with loose skin and dark circles. The reality is, as we age, the tissues and muscles around our eyes weaken with time. And with pandemic burnout and work-from-home being a reality for so many of us, one thing is for sure—we're tired of looking tired. 

Cold compresses are a practical way to reduce swelling in the undereye region. Believe it or not, cold cucumber slices or cold, wet tea bags on the eyes actually have similar effects, with tea bags used in hopes that the teas' caffeine content will work to pep up the under eyes. Gentle tapping, massaging, and even eye-rollers can also help to reduce inflammation and increase blood flow. However, at-home remedies are just part of the equation for depuffed and brightened under eyes.

Enter Dermalogica's NEW Awaken Peptide Eye Gel, a product developed to energize your eyes for a more well-rested look. This gentle and lightweight formula firms and smoothes the skin around the eyes and effectively reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness.

What makes the Awaken Peptide Eye Gel the winner that it is? An infusion of highly active Tetrapeptides work to improve the elasticity of the delicate skin around your eyes while reducing signs of dryness. Caffeine helps reduce inflammation and puffiness while tightening and brightening. Working in tandem with the caffeine, Rosemary Leaf Extract also minimizes swelling and puffiness while healing and soothing any dry areas. A bioengineered Succinic Acid blend stimulates skin cell turnover, keeping your eyes looking bright. And finally, nutrient-dense Voandzeia Subterranea (also known as Bambara Nut) Seed Extract leaves the skin smoother and more luminous.

While this nap in a tube is a game-changer, Dermalogica's range of eye treatments leaves room for anyone and everyone to find the product that works for their unique needs. Increase your skin's resilience and firmness with our Multivitamin Power Firm, supercharge and brighten your skin with a boost of Vitamin C with our Biolumin-C Eye Serum, and so much more. For a revitalized, healthy and glowing look, explore Dermalogica's range of products with a Professional Skin Therapist to find a routine that works best for you.
