The eye patch, anti-fatigue secret

It's not easy not to look tired when you lead a crazy life (between work, outings with girlfriends, children, etc.). Bingo! Resting (at least) the eyes is precisely the job of these patches. They combine a mask formulation, ultra-concentrated in hydrating, plumping and draining active ingredients, and a mechanical occlusive action, which helps the active ingredients to penetrate quickly. Those with a gelled texture give an immediate boost of radiance (you can also put them in the fridge for a tightening effect). No wonder so many brands have gotten into it lately.

Who is it for ? Everyone, except those who never get tired (ah, ah… who?).

I adopt it

There are two ways to use the patch. "Either we apply it as an SOS treatment, in the morning or before going in the evening, or we use it as a follow-up treatment, in periods of severe fatigue, 2 to 3 times a week", explains Thi Bich Chu, chef of Filorga product. In both cases, the patch is placed under the eye, on clean skin. It is smoothed with the finger so that it adheres perfectly to the epidermis. Leave it on for the time indicated on the pack (usually 10 to 20 minutes) and then remove it. If any texture remains on the skin, simply massage it in with your finger. There you go, the effect is immediate:the look is fresher and more luminous.
