Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are the main constituents of skin cells. Amino acids are essential to maintain the function and structure of the skin, as well as to maintain its natural hydration.
Amino acids are also key components of natural moisturizing factors (NMFs), which are molecules that occur naturally in the skin and are responsible for keeping it hydrated. NMFs are made up of different amino acids, mineral salts and other hydrating compounds.
In our eye contour treatment, the use of amino acids composed of the NMF family maintains the natural hydration of the skin and prevents dehydration of the skin in this fragile and delicate area. The eyes are often the first area of the face to show signs of dehydration, with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles and bags under the eyes.
The use of NMF amino acids strengthens the skin barrier of the skin. The skin barrier is the outer protective layer of the skin, which prevents outside elements such as bacteria, pollutants and allergens from entering the skin. When the skin barrier is weakened, it can lead to dry, irritated and infection-prone skin. NMF amino acids help strengthen this protective barrier and maintain healthy skin.
Additionally, NMF amino acids also have skin-soothing properties, helping to reduce inflammation and irritation in the eye area. This helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and bags under the eyes, as well as improving the texture and overall appearance of the skin in this area.
In conclusion, the use of compound amino acids from the NMF family helps to maintain the skin's natural hydration, strengthen the skin barrier, soothe the skin and improve the overall appearance of the skin in this delicate area.
