- Take out the equivalent of a large pinhead balm and spread it between your fingertips on your little fingers, gently dab the balm into the skin around your eyes – preferably right up to the brow and under the eyes, some distance from the lash edge.
- Do the same when you need to dab on, and around your lips.
- If you tend to dark circles around the eyes, you can use the balm sometimes during the day. Otherwise, just morning and evening.
FOR YOU WHO WANT TO KNOW MORE
Vegetable oils such as argan and shea oil contain the essential fatty acids that are so important for nourishing and nurturing the eye environment. The Argan oil is high in vitamin E, which acts as a strong antioxidant on the skin. The eye cream is therefore very regenerative and firming.
Bergamot oil is intertractive while boosting blood circulation. It therefore helps to reduce dark circles under the eyes with a here-and-now effect. The dark circles under the eyes seem smaller when the blood vessels contract and this is where the bergamot and argan oil do the work.
A LITTLE ABOUT ESSENTIAL BERGAMOT OIL
Bergamot oil is extracted from bergamot orange. A small green-yellow citrus fruit, which especially grows in Sicily. The smell and taste are characteristic and we know it especially from the little yellow “Altea sweets” and from Earl Grey tea. The scent is associated with freshness and liver up. Used in skin care and pharmacology for hundreds of years, the oil has been used to fight bacteria and stop bleeding. The oil is widely used in aromatherapy and many associate it with spa and wellness.
