Seeing Double: These Serums Also Double as a Brightening Eye Cream

Since skin is thinner under the eyes, it often shows the first signs of ageing, including fine lines, dark circles, and skin laxity. One way to reverse the process is to use a brightening serum; however, to improve your results, it’s important to combine it with a Vitamin A product as well.

Brightening serums, such as Simply Brilliant  reduce the appearance of dark circles and discolouration. Simply Brilliant is formulated with powerful antioxidants and 10 skin-specific, plant-based ingredients shown to brighten and even skin tone. It’s gentle enough to use on the skin under the eyes. Adding a Vitamin A-based product stimulates cellular turnover and diminishes the fine lines that often form in this sensitive area.

Vitamin A & Brightening

Vitamin A and its derivative Retinol boost cellular turnover and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form as early as our 30s. Applying Vitamin A-based products may keep premature ageing at bay, helping skin appear brighter and younger.
