How to apply eye cream the right way

The eye contour is one of the areas of your face where signs of aging are made visible more quickly. For that reason, it is important to find the right eye contour product that moisturizes the skin of this area and gives you a brighter and younger look. Just as important as finding the appropriate product, is the technique you use! In this article we will show you how to apply eye cream correctly, since the effectiveness of this treatment depends largely on how you apply it. If you are going to spend money on a miraculous under-eye area product, shouldn’t you know how to apply this product correctly?

The skin around your eyes is drier compared to the rest of the facial skin. Our eyes move with facial movements like smiling or blinking. These movements along with excessive exposure to the sun, contamination and aging cause fine lines known as crow’s feet around the eyes. A good application of cream for the contour of the eyes, gives them a younger and smoother appearance; at the same time, it prevents and treats lines of expression and wrinkles.

One thing you MUST know before learning how to apply eye cream is: DO NOT USE YOUR FINGERS! Even though you are a clean freak and wash your hands every 10 minutes, there will always be the risk of bacteria from your hands (remember that the skin of your eye contour is extremely sensitive). Using your fingers also means, a substantial amount of the product will go there and not to the skin under your eyes. So from now on, DO NOT apply under-eye treatments using your fingers!

Having said this, we can now tell you how to apply eye cream in three simple steps!

1. Cleanse the skin with your usual cleanser, tonic or moisturizer

2. Use an applicator (sometimes it comes with the product or it’s part of the tube or you have to purchase it separately) and apply one drop to each eye.
