Of course nothing is 100% but what I’ve been doing lately has made the biggest difference in the lines around my eyes so I thought I’d share what’s been working for me.
We already know I’m a huge fan of Dermarolling (aka Microneedling.) It’s this little device that literally pokes tiny holes in your skin which causes a healing reaction to the area which stimulates collagen and gets the skin awake and looking great. It’s used to fight wrinkles, uneven skin, and dullness pretty much the same way lasers do which also create little tears in the skin so it rushes to heal itself. Some are really sharp and scary (and of course I have one of those too) but this is the one I like to use around my eye area for that thinner, delicate skin. I’ve been doing this more faithfully these days, about twice a week although there isn’t any magic number behind frequency.
Now that you created all of these little micro channels in the skin, use a good eye cream to achieve maximum penetration. There are some great studies out there proving how much better a product is absorbed after dermarolling which of course makes sense. I’ve been really loving Volanté Transformative Eye Créme. It has a light texture that gives a huge impact that not only hydrates but visually relaxes crow’s feet. I use it day and night but really lay on a thick film after rolling to make sure a good amount penetrates. It has botanicals and inflammation reducers to bring down puff which is important post-rolling which can create irritation. It’s important to use something that’s good quality so you aren’t driving ingredients into the skin that shouldn’t be there which can cause a reaction or even damage. I only roll my eyes using this cream and my face using serums I trust.
Rolling, along with a good quality eye cream, are effective when used solo but I feel like this one-two punch of using them together makes an even bigger difference in those stubborn lines around the eyes.
