How to use a serum
To help the rich texture of the eye cream apply more easily, first soften it between two fingertips. Then gently massage using a circular motion into the skin around your eyes. As always, avoid tugging or pulling at the skin and avoid direct contact with the eyes. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.
Clinical products offer more enhanced, targeted formulations for specific concerns such as advanced signs of ageing, dehydration or sun damage. Ultimately, it’s a matter of what will suit your needs best. It’s perfectly fine to assemble an anti-ageing routine that mixes Resist, Clinical and any other Paula’s Choice Skincare line that addresses your skin type and concerns.
Ceramides are a natural, fundamental part of skin that helps maintain precise levels of hydration, allowing skin to have a smooth, even surface. They’re critical for holding skin together (think bricks and mortar), protecting it from dehydration, signs of sensitivity and environmental damage that chips away at skin’s protective surface. Ceramides are the most abundant part of skin, making up over 50% of its composition.
As we age, the level of ceramides in our skin begins to decrease. As a result, the skin barrier weakens, which can lead to symptoms such as irritation, dryness, and redness. Skincare products that contain ceramides (and other skin beneficial ingredients) can help improve these symptoms.
Compared to our Resist Eye Cream, the Clinical Eye Cream contains more targeted ingredients for treating advanced signs of ageing around the eyes (like vitamin C and ceramides). It has a lightweight, gel-cream texture, whereas our Resist eye cream has a balm-like consistency.
The eye cream contains slightly less retinol and vitamin C making it perfectly designed for use around the eyes. In addition, it contains two peptides to address wrinkles and to help firm the delicate eye area: Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 and Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5. The first enhances skin’s firmness by stimulating new collagen production and blocking the negative effects of collagen-degrading enzymes. The second helps reduce eye puffiness, improving skin elasticity and overall smoothness. You won't find these peptides in the Clinical Ceramide-Enriched Moisturizer.
Paula has always said that you can use your face products around the eyes as long as they're well-formulated and fragrance free. However, some find their regular moisturisers aren't emollient or rich enough for the eye area. Skin around the eyes that is drier, shows a loss of firmness, and dark circles requires an enhanced formula for visible improvement—that’s where our eye products excel.
The CollagenSupport Complex combines the skin-replenishing properties of ceramides with retinol for strengthening support and several forms of vitamin C to help defend against environmental stressors and promote firmer skin. Together, this complex provides the essential building blocks for skin to renew itself and restore its natural barrier.
The total percentage of vitamin C is 5.0% and retinol is 0.01%. The percentage of vitamin C and retinol is at a deliberately lower amount to the Clinical Ceramide facial moisturiser, allowing for customers to apply both products to the eye area without causing sensitivity.
