At Inlight Organic Skincare, we believe that skin ageing is a normal, natural and inevitable process: everything in life follows this change and it is important to face it with positivity and honesty. If we observe the seasonal mutation we can see for example how after the flowers bloom in spring – synonymous with youthful energy- everything starts to decline in autumn, losing colour, vitality and hydration; heading off to winter time where the cycle seems to end.
By better understanding the reason behind the ageing of our skin and its physiology it may seem easier to prevent and treat what appears to be an aesthetic problem – but is not, as it is rooted in the ageing process of the whole body,
Ultimately the main problems as we grow older are dehydrated skin (due to loss of water) reduction of elasticity (due the inability of the fibroblasts to produce enough elastin and collagen), reduction in production of melatonin hence the skin can be more easily damaged by UV rays, and finally reduced production of sebum resulting in dryer skin. All these are endogenous factors, but there are also external and environmental factors such as pollutants, excessive sun exposure and bad habits such as poor physical exercise, junk food, alcohol and smoking. The sum of all these factors produces a high level of oxidants (free radicals) that damage the DNA/RNA and proteins, resulting in a thicker skin and loss of elasticity.
The eye contour, with its delicate skin, is one of the most vulnerable areas thanks also to the continuous activity of the orbicular muscles as laugh, cry and squint in the sun, creating micro-wrinkles commonly known as crows’ feet. (In Italian these are called “hen’s feet” and I wonder if it is because Italian women are more exposed to the sun, so that we needed a bigger animal than a crow to express it?)
My response to this problem has been the formulation of an extraordinary product for the eye area: Inlight Supreme Eye Serum.
It took nearly two years of research and trials but in the end I found the perfect point where science and alchemy meet. A wonderful challenge!
I have chosen some of the best oils such as the exotic Argan and Wild cherry seed oil, famous for improving skin elasticity and reducing water loss, by creating a natural hydrolipidic barrier. To deal with the free-radicals I decided to include Spirulina algae and barley extract that both supply chlorophyll with their high anti-oxidant action, bringing life and solar energy into the skin. And finally to help the production of elastin I have added Gotu Kola and Horsetail extracts.
Inlight Supreme Eye Serum targets the most common causes of the skin ageing process, helping to nourish and replenish the skin and slowing down the signs of time.
With Inlight there are ways to extend our springtime!
Before moisturising, apply one drop once or twice daily onto the area around the eyes, including the eye lids, massaging very gently until absorbed.
