Eye creams are the underrated heroes of the skincare world. From nourishing and moisturising the undereye area to reducing dark circles, puffiness and providing a brightening effect, eye creams do it all.
But despite using eye cream religiously, if you still aren’t seeing any remarkable changes in the under eye area, then there is a chance that you are not using this product correctly. But don’t worry because this is soon going to be a problem of the past. How? Because we are about to tell you how exactly to use eye cream properly to reap maximum benefits…
Use it in the correct order
One of the pre-requisites of ensuring that you can reap maximum benefits of your skincare products is to apply them in the correct order; starting from the lightest and moving onto the heaviest. Since eye creams usually have a super light consistency, apply it right after your serum or toner to allow it to sink in properly.
Be extremely gentle
The skin around your eyes is extremely thin and delicate; therefore, you need to be very gentle when applying eye cream. Pulling and tugging at the skin puts it under tremendous pressure leading to premature lines and wrinkles as well as puffy eyes in the long run.
Always use a pea-sized amount
Applying too much eye cream is not going to reduce those under eye problems faster, in fact, it will only waste your product. Just take a pea-sized amount of eye cream on your ring finger and apply it to the orbital bone for best results.
Dab, don’t rub
Rubbing the eye cream not only puts too much stress on the delicate skin leading to fine lines and wrinkles, but also shifts the product a lot causing wastage. Therefore, gently dab the product into your skin using the ring finger. This will help the product work a lot better and won’t harm the undereye area as well.
