You may think it’s a bit of a silly endeavour, advising people on how to apply eye cream. It’s cream – and you put it around the eye. Right?
Erm – not exactly. There is some dos and don’t when it comes to putting on this most delicate of skin care products.
The problem is that one must be very careful with the skin around the eye. It can be a fine line between making beautiful and youthful peepers and end up in A&E with inflamed eyeballs.
Today.com has helped us with some credible advice on applying eye cream.
The skin surrounding the eye is very thin and delicate compared to the rest of your face, and it requires the most attention since it shows signs of aging first.
To apply, tap a pea-sized dab of cream underneath each eye using your ring finger. This gives the perfect amount of pressure; your other fingers are too strong and can actually cause wrinkling by tugging too hard. (Pro tip: The same advice applies for under-eye makeup.) Then, smooth it over your skin, going on and around the orbital bone, taking care not to get too close to eyes. (The product will naturally migrate up a bit since this area has very few pores to fully absorb the cream.)
Also, be sure to avoid the lids. Otherwise, cream can seep into eyes, causing burning or irritation, especially if you wear contact lenses.
If you’re looking for a very good eye cream that will work hard to make your peepers look as beautiful as possible, we recommend Dr. Spiller Biomimetic Skin Care Silk Eye Contour Cream is a revitalising eye care with deep working Silk Peptides and active botanicals to reduce fine lines and dark circles.
