Eye cream should be part of youranti-ageing skincare routine, even if you’re not showing any fine lines or wrinkles. This area is often where you will first start noticing those early signs of ageing. The area under your eyes also shows up puffiness and dark shadows. To smooth things out, reduce those bags, minimise the dark shadows and keep your skin looking softer, an eye cream is essential. If you want to get the full results, you’ll need to apply this product properly.
Getting the Most from Your Eye Cream
Here are some steps to take to get the most from your eye cream.
Start with clean hands
You will be applying this product with your fingers, so it is important to always start with clean hands. This step usually comes aftermoisturisers and serums or targeted treatments such as spot creams. If you have any product on your fingers, you won’t want any to end up on the skin around your eyes. Wash your hands properly so that you can apply the product with clean hands.
Use the right amount
It’s not always easy to know how much cream you’ll need to use. The simplest way is to follow directions on the back of your chosen product. When in doubt, half a pump or a full pump will usually be enough to cover the area under your eyes. You don’t want to use too much as it will take longer to absorb. You want to use enough to get the full benefit, while also drying quickly so that you can use your moisturiser.
Apply the right way
The way to apply this product is to pump the required amount onto the back of your hand and then carefully dab it onto your skin with your fingers. Remember, the skin under your eyes is extremely delicate. Now is not the time to rub the product into your skin as you would with products for the rest of your face. Make a semi-circle of dots under the eye and over the eye just below your eyebrows and gently pat into the skin. You can also very carefully dot a tiny amount on the skin between your eye and temple.
