Skin‘s colour spectrum is made up of naturally occurring pigments associated with different skin layers. These pigments absorb light which results in a reduction of the intensity of the light reflected from the skin. With age, the amount of these pigments increases, diminishing the natural luminosity of the complexion and leading to skin that appears older than it actually is. These colour disturbances are particularly noticeable in the eye area, where skin is naturally thinner.
The new White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire by La Prairie is the perfect aid kit that deals with the skin's colour spectrum to balance and decrease exactly these pigments to cause a bright and healthy glow on the skin. White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire reduces brown spots on the cheekbones, red and violet tones on the skin's surface and it minimizes the appearance of yellow areas and a grey hue.

Red: Exposure to external stress factors such as UV rays, irritants, micro-organisms and free radicals can lead to inflammation and dilation of the capillaries in the skin‘s deeper layers. Together with an increased visibility of blood vessels through thinned, aging skin, red discolouration becomes prominent - skin appears red and uneven, its natural light is dimmed.

Yellow: Oxidative stress due to excessive free radicals can lead to protein degradation, including collagen glycation. In addition, degradation of haemoglobin from blood cells leaking into the under-eye tissue through brittle capillaries leads to the accumulation of yellow pigments. The result is an unhealthy-looking, yellow cast that diminishes skin‘s inner light.

Violet: The appearance of under-eye darkness is mainly the result of both oxygenated and especially de-oxygenated haemoglobin from blood capillaries shining through very thin skin. Under-eye darkness becomes more pronounced with age as skin thins further.

Grey: Dust and particular matter from pollution accumulate on the skin‘s stratum corneum, the upper-most layer of the epidermis, creating a superficial grey veil of particles that diminishes the natural, healthy-looking light of youthful skin.

Brown: With excessive exposure to sunlight and pollution, melanin production in the epidermis is likely to increase. In aging skin in particular, some melanocytes may be damaged by cumulative UV exposure, causing them to continuously overproduce melanin, leading to local discolouration, also known as age or dark spots, that reduce the skin‘s natural luminosity.
