Editor’s Pick: Zahra’s Favourite Eye Serum
As much as I love winter’s cozy mornings and crispy evening air, this is also the time of year when our skin is at its driest. That’s why it’s important to have a solid skincare regime for the season that affects skin the most. While I’m lazier than most when it comes to a good routine, the one thing I do need lately is a hydrating serum that calms my puffy eyes every morning. Blame it on the after-work parties, salty snacks or chronic insomnia, but I’ve been waking up with peepers that look like they’ve been stung by bees.
Now I haven’t tried too many eye creams out there, but from the few that I have my favourite is Clinique’s All About Eyes Serum. It does a superb job of depuffing, refreshing and brightening my eyes in a matter of minutes. The lightweight, gel-like consistency absorbs in seconds and has no strong scent — one of the things that majorly puts me off in skincare products. The serum also comes with a metal rollerball that cools on contact, and it’s an absolute delight to apply it in the mornings straight out of the refrigerator.
Like most Clinique products, the formula contains an impressive mix of potent antioxidants, soothing botanicals and other ingredients that your skin will love, but the addition of caffeine is what makes this product stand out. Caffeine is known as an anti-inflammatory ingredient and has a constrictive effect on skin, makes this the perfect topical treatment for puffiness, no?
