The INKEY List under eye Caffeine Serum is rich in an anti-inflammatory antioxidant derived from coffee. It helps to reduce puffiness, dark circles and prevent skin damage from free radicals which can make dark circles more pronounced.
As caffeine is a diuretic it can help to relieve water retention which can be a major cause of puffiness under the eyes.
Caffeine serums acts to:
- Target dark circles
- Reduce the appearance of dark circles
- Reduce puffiness
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines
- Matrixyl 3000 peptide to help boost collagen production.
- Suitable for all skin types.
Use morning and evening. After cleansing apply a small amount onto finger and gently pat around the contour of the eye. Can be combined with the use of other serums. Follow with moisturiser.
For an extra soothing effect, keep your caffeine serum in the fridge and massage gently into the under eye area to stimulate circulation.
Tips from The INKEY List:
Dark circles and puffiness can be caused by a number of factors. If you are genetically predispositioned to dark circles, caused by pigmentation underneath the eye, or puffiness under the eye caused by fat deposits, unfortunately caffeine serum is unlikely to help.
Caffeine is a fantastic way to reduce puffiness and dark circles caused by a number of lifestyle factors such as lack of sleep, travelling, diet and high salt intake among others. As an antioxidant, it also has preventative properties, and can protect the eye area from free radicals and environmental stress. Ensuring you are always wearing sunscreen will also help.
Advice and Warnings:
Avoid the immediate eye area. External use only.
