This Syn Ake eye contour cream has a Botox-like effect on dynamic expression lines and wrinkles in the eye contour area. Fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial movements, are reduced and diminished by relaxing the muscle. Using an innovative polypeptide that is similar to snake venom, which minimises muscle contraction and the cause of most expression line and wrinkles around the eye. Unlike Botox injections, this provides a non-invasive treatment but with similar results.
In addition to the primary effect of reducing and diminishing wrinkles, Syn Ake Eye Contour Cream helps to hydrate and protect the delicate skin around the eye area through the use of ingredients like argan oil, shea butter and vitamin E. This leaves the skin looking firmer, softer and more youthful. The use of a soft focus agent further helps to soften the appearance of the skin around the eye contour area.
How is our skin made up?
Our skin is made up of three layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue.
The epidermis is the skin’s outer layer. Rich in keratin, which provides roughness and makes it water-resistance. Within this layer of skin the dead skin cells are shed and where melanin (a dark pigment) is found. The epidermis acts as a barrier for the layers below, and is the first defence in our body’s immune system.
Under the epidermis is the thick dermal layer. The dermis is composed of nerves, fats, blood vessels, elastin, and collagen fibres. Collagen occupies approximately 80% of the dermis, and is a protein and the main component of the body’s connective tissue. Collagen gives the skin its strength and elastin gives the skin its elastic quality, enabling it to stretch back and forth.
- Subcutaneous Tissue:
The subcutaneous layer is made up of fat. It’s mainly responsible for keeping us warm and holding our internal organs in place.
Why do wrinkles Appear?
Wrinkles are clearly a natural part of our ageing process. As people get older, their skin gets thinner, drier, and less elastic, and is less able to protect itself from damage, internally and/or externally. External factor include environmental pollutions, extreme weather and the UV rays that breakdown collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. These fibre form the connective tissue in the skin.
The facial wrinkles are more often dynamic wrinkles caused by contraction of muscles that are attached to the overlying skin. Each muscle contraction causes the skin to bunch together, forming lines between the muscle mass. Facial movements and expressions, such as squinting or smiling, lead to fine lines and wrinkles
There are forty-three separate muscles in the face, which together are capable of making over 10,000 unique and identifiable facial expressions. Unlike all other muscles in the body, the facial muscles are directly attached to the skin. Although allowing unparalleled freedom of movement, it is also the main reason why the face is usually the first place showing signs of ageing, as lines and wrinkles start to form.
