CameLife Founder Dr Jane Rose Explains Eye Creams 

Are you starting to notice wrinkles around your eyes?  Are existing wrinkles  becoming more pronounced?  Do you get black circles or bags under your eyes?  Are your eyes tired after a long journey, a hard day at the office or a big night?

Laughter Lines

You’ve heard the promises: eye creams will reduce the fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles around your eyes.  But aren’t eye creams just another more expensive moisturiser in a smaller tube?

Not necessarily, says CameLife founder, Dr Jane Rose.  “CameLife Restorative Eye Cream is formulated specifically for the delicate skin around your eye.  It is thicker than our facial moisturiser and serum, containing active natural ingredients aimed at problems we see around the eyes.  At the centre of our formulation is the camel milk itself”.

The skin around your eyes is thinner, more fragile and more prone to dryness than elsewhere on our face, so it appears to age quicker.  Constant eye movement and squinting hastens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while fluids collect under the eyes, causing puffiness and dark circles particularly when your are tired.

Fine lines and wrinkles come from both sun damage and natural ageing; your skin makes less collagen and elastin as you age.  Collagen helps to keep your skin firm, whilst elastin helps it to rebound.  Without them, your skin will sag and soften.  Dark circles under our eyes often indicate a build-up of de-oxygenated blood.  The causes can be genetic, sun damage, age or simply fatigue.

Restorative Eye CreamMost eye creams contain sodium ascorbate to provide Vitamin C, which, can, over time, thicken the skin and help to conceal dark circles.   Provided, of course, that the cream is fine enough to be absorbed and does not simply stay on the surface.  The camel milk in CameLife Restorative Eye Cream contains natural Vitamin C, which is easily absorbed because of the milk’s unique microscopic hydrolysed fat structure.  Niacinamide, or Vitamin B3 can also help to lighten dark circles and camel milk is rich in Vitamin B3.

Retinol is routinely added to eye creams, touted as a magic ingredient and is one of the most used synthetic Vitamin As in skincare products. Retinol can, however, be harsh on some skin types, particularly on the delicate skin around your eye.  We do not add Retinol to our Restorative Eye Cream; instead we use natural oils that contain the pro-Vitamin Beta Carotene which your skin will cover to Retinoid Acid.   There is enough natural Vitamin A in camel milk to gently regulate cell production and enhance epidermal growth.

One of the main causes of deterioration of our collagen is Oxidative Stress. The secondary active ingredient of our Restorative Eye Cream  is Sweet Almond Oil, which contains Vitamin E, one of the most powerful anti-oxidants known.  The oil is rich in essential proteins, which can provide the amino acids necessary to build collagen.  Sweet Almond Oil has many benefits, but it is often recommended as a natural treatment for dry eyes by applying to the eye lids.  Unlike most eye creams our Restorative Eye Cream can be applied directly to the eye lids and, because it is so easily absorbed, it won’t run into the eyes and blur vision.

Apply Eye Cream

But the best bit comes last; camel milk is known to stimulate the micro-circulation of blood to the skin.  Users of CameLife Restorative Eye Cream often report a slight, pleasant tingling of their skin when they apply the cream.  Black bags disappear quickly, leaving the eyes feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.  Restorative Eye Cream is isn’t just a beauty product; it is perfect to use to relieve tired and aching eyes during the day.
