Caffeine – the get-up-and-glow boost from Claire Hill

January 21, 2021 LNE Editor

While there is much debate about the pros and cons of indulging in your daily espresso, there are clear and defined up-shots to dosing the skin with topical caffeine.

Not only can it reduce puffiness and under-eye darkness, it functions as a potent antioxidant that can fight free radicals before they wreck ageing havoc on your skin.

On its own it is a helpful ingredient, but it also boosts the effectiveness of others, including Vitamin B and C + Hyaluronic Acid.

No wonder Claire Hill’s WPC Complex Eye Gel works wonders and this is why it should be part of your skincare regime:

 

WPC Eye Complex is ideal for all skin types and contains Stevisse a gentle alternative to retinol (Vitamin A) that naturally diminishes wrinkles and minimises skin ageing without irritation.

Key Ingredients:
Caffeine: naturally tightens blood vessels to help reduce puffiness and inflammation.
GABA: a natural muscle relaxant to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Squalane: reduces visible wrinkles and pigmentation.
Stevisse: a gentle alternative to retinol that naturally diminishes wrinkles and minimises skin ageing without irritation.
Benefits:
Ideal for mature and sensitive skin, WPC EYE COMPLEX contains a gentle alternative to regular Vitamin A (retinols), so you can enjoy similar skin-smoothing benefits without any irritating side effects.
Naturally reduces puffiness around the eye area.
Cools and calms skin.
Smooths uneven skin tone.

 

Let’s get technical as to why we love the new Claire Hill WPC Eye Complex:

Did you know?
Retinol is made up of small molecules that are able to penetrate the epidermis and travel to the middle layer of skin called the dermis. Once here retinol neutralizes free radicals to boost the production of elastin and collagen, creating a “plumping” effect that softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What is Stevisse?
Stevisse is a plant based alternative to retinol (VitA) that offers similar rejuvenating results but without the negative side effects such as irritation or redness.

How does Stevisse work?
Stevisse prevents the degradation of essential extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins responsible for providing structural support to surrounding cells by reducing the production of metalloproteinases MMP1 and MMP3. Stevisse also boosts HMOX1, TXNRD and OSGIN1 gene expression to improve skins resistance to oxidative stress whilst also reducing the expression of the pro-inflammatory PTGS2 gene minimising irritation.
