One of the most underrated products in our skincare regimen has to be an eye cream. Not only does this product keep your eye area moisturised, but it also helps in preventing problems such as under-eye dark circles and puffiness. Therefore, skipping an eye cream and replacing it with just about any moisturiser will not give you the desired results. The skin around your eyes is fragile and requires special care that only an eye cream can provide.

But apart from using eye cream religiously, it’s also essential to apply it the right way to reap maximum benefit. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to apply eye cream the right way.

How to apply eye cream the right way: A step-by-step guide

Step 01: Start with a clean slate. Saturate a cotton pad with a gentle makeup remover like the Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Water and place it on your eyelid. Let it rest for about 30 seconds before gently wiping it to eliminate all traces of makeup, dirt and oil.

Step 02: Next, take about half a pea-sized amount of the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Night Revival Eye Cream and dot it on the under-eye area. Ensure that you do not use more than the specified amount as eye creams are usually brimming with potent ingredients, and in this case, less is truly more.

Step 03: Now, using your ring finger, gently massage the product into your skin. Remember to use very little pressure and go slow as you do not want to damage the super delicate under-eye skin.

Allow the cream to absorb fully before layering the rest of your skincare products.
