1. It’s never too early to start using eye cream.
Every time we squint, smile, or show any form of expression, we force our eye area to crease, and this will eventually lead to wrinkles and fine lines forming around the area. And because prevention is key, it is never too early to start using it.
2. The best way to apply it is with your ring finger.
The ring fingers are the “weakest” ones, making them the most suitable ones to use on the most sensitive area of your face. Tap your eye cream on your under eye area, beginning from the inner corner working your way outwards.
3. You need it twice a day.
4. Pop it in the fridge.
Patting on cold eye cream will help soothe your tired and puffy under eye area. Here's a list of other beauty products you should keep in the fridge.
5. You can mix it with your concealer.
Mix a bit of eye cream with your under eye concealer for it to apply more smoothly. Doing this trick will also help prevent your concealer from creasing.
6. Be sure to always read the ingredient list.
Again, because the area is so sensitive, you have to be careful about the eye creams that you use. The ingredients that you do want to see are peptides, glycerin, urea, and hyaluronic acid. Also, pick an eye cream that is fragrance free to reduce the risk of skin irritation!
7. Gel eye creams will work for oily skin.
If you’re scared to try out eye cream because you have oily skin, look for a gel-formulated one that won’t aggravate oil production. Yay!
