Eye Lift for Brighter Eyes Unmasked !
By Lisa Young – Salon Director
The beauty industry has long maintained that stress impacts health, and that their primary role is to help clients reduce stress.
However, stress can often be good for us. In fact, good forms of stress (known as eustress Hans Selye: Eustress vs. Distress) helps us grow, keeps us alert and motivates us to achieve that deadline, that perfect performance.
So in essence, it’s what gives us more energy. In a nutshell, if we have a positive mind set – stress compels and drives us.
It’s only when stress becomes negative (or better known as distress Hans Selye: Eustress vs. Distress) that stress can be bad for us.
We all know how stress also affects our bodies, including the skin.
Medical researchers are learning more about the connection between our minds and bodies, and how skin responds to what we perceive as “positive stress” versus “negative stress.”
So with this in mind and inspired by the concept of stress, the skin health experts at Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute have developed NEW Stress Positive Eye Lift.
This active, cooling cream-gel treatment and masque visibly lifts and energises the eye area while brightening and de-puffing under-eye circles.
The Stress Positive Eye Lift product is part of the daily Skin Health line. It is designed to help those who love burning the candle at both ends optimise the appearance of their eye area so they can counter the effects of lifestyle.
So go on and harness your stress positive and give your eyes the lift they deserve!!
The Effects of Stress on the Eye Area
At about 0.5 mm, the skin around the eyes is some of the thinnest and most delicate on the body. This makes it one of the first areas to show signs of stress.
People who are experiencing stress, particularly distress, may be less likely to tend to bodily needs such as hydration, nutrition, sleep and daily sun protection, all of which can worsen the appearance of the eye area. Common effects can include:
Loss of volume: the eye area loses volume, resulting in a sunken appearance when dehydrated. Eyes appear fine lined and dark circles appear.
Puffiness: Lack of proper nutrition including the increased consumption of processed foods can result in increased salt intake, which generates puffiness under the eyes causing capillaries to stretch and leak leading to further contribution to puffiness.
Dark circles: Lack of sleep, along with hyperpigmentation, can worsen dark circles, which are sometimes hereditary. When people are tired, blood circulation tends to slow, allowing oxygenated blood to pool and become more visible under the thin skin around the eyes. This can give dark circles a more purplish hue. Lack of proper sun protection can also further darken pigmentation around the eyes.
Free radical damage: smoking can disrupt sleep and generate free radicals that can lead to the signs of premature skin ageing.
A weakened skin barrier: Dehydration, lack of sleep, excessive rubbing and smoking can further weaken an already impaired skin barrier (or skin’s natural ability to protect itself), leading to increased visibility of what lies underneath.

Here’s the clever bit. The product comes with a smart metal applicator on the tip that cools the skin during application and can be used to perform some movements that aid detoxification around the eye area.
It’s simple to use – after cleansing, apply generously around the eye area using cooling massage applicator. Leave on for 3 to 5 minutes. Perform the eye movements for product penetration and to drain toxins and puffiness.
