Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye new
via Kiehl’s: Following the blockbuster success of Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Kiehl’s Since 1851 is pleased to introduce new Midnight Recovery Eye. A restorative concentrate for the delicate eye area, this overnight elixir was specifically designed to addresses three of the top under-eye concerns of women in the United States – puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles – overnight!
Why Eye Cream?
“Eye treatments high in anti-inflammatory properties and replenishing lipids are essential to maintain healthy and younger looking under-eye skin,” said Dr. Adam Geyer, Kiehl’s Consulting Dermatologist, and founder of Tribeca Park Dermatology in New York City.
Midnight Recovery Eye is a paraben-free, sulfate-free, fragrance-free, mineral oil-free solution.
Its ingredients work synergistically to enhance microcirculation of blood vessels and boost hydration in the under-eye area, at a time when skin is naturally programmed to best absorb active ingredients, typically between midnight and 4 a.m.
Dr. Geyer recommends a nightly regimen, saying, “Much of the skin’s energy during the day is used to protect itself, with less energy to spare on repair. Therefore, the primary activity of the skin during the night, when one is sleeping and not exposed to as many damaging free radicals, is to repair itself, especially in the fragile eye area, which is prone to puffiness and early signs of wrinkles.”
