The thinnest skin on our face is the skin surrounding our eyes. Not coincidentally, this area has the least amount of oil glands, which is why we often notice “expression lines” around the eye area first. Most of the time, the lines we see in this area are not true wrinkles, but rather a sign of dehydration!
We wanted to add an eye serum that addressed all our concerns: expression lines, true wrinkles, dark circles, and even puffiness. We wanted all the benefits without exfoliants or harsh ingredients near our delicate eye area. That’s why we introduced the Spin Trap Eye Serum.
What makes spin trap special? Spin traps are antioxidants that are anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial by nature, so they are soothing to the delicate undereye skin. You can think of spin traps as “smart” antioxidants. They scavenge for age-inducing free radicals (ROS Reactive Oxygen Species), then absorb them… All while protecting your “good” oxygen.
Our formulation is also packed with super hydrating liquid crystals that soak into skin. Those crystals give you a bright, hydrated, and “rested” look to your under eye area.
For a little bit of R&R for your eyes, try this DIY spa-style eye treatment. You’ll need:
- Ice (or frozen vegetables)
- Plastic bag
- Spin Trap Eye Serum
- Optional: Candles and the sound of running water
Step 1: Create a cold compress choosing your favorite method of the three below:
a.) Place ice cubes in a plastic bag.
b.) You can also substitute ice with a bag of frozen food. It’s best to use smaller vegetables (like peas!) so the bag will sit well on your skin.
c.) You can also use a towel to make a cold compress if you don’t have ice. Dampen a towel with cold water and place it in a sealable plastic bag. Put the bag in the freezer for 15 minutes. Cold compresses made from wet towels may be more comfortable for sensitive areas, such as the eyes.
Step 2: Apply pin-sized amount of the Spin Trap Eye Serum under your eye and under your brow bone. Do not go past “eye bone.” If you’re using benzoyl peroxide cream, make sure where eye serum ends is at least one inch from where the BP cream touched your skin.
Step 3: Run a washcloth under cold water. Wring it out so it’s damp, but not dripping. Then wrap the towel around your cold compress of choice.
Step 4: Place the homemade compress over your eyes and temples for up to 20 minutes, if tolerable.
Step 5: The ice may start melting, so you can use the dry towel to gently dab the skin. Once you’re done, gently dry the area with a towel. Open your eyes to refreshed, hydrated skin.
