We’ve received a few email inquiries over the last couple of months asking how to properly apply eye cream. Many companies and specialists have their own tricks and techniques. Today, we’re going to give you some insight as to how you should be applying your eye cream on a daily basis.
One of the first things that you need to be aware of is that the skin around your eyes is very delicate. If done in an incorrect manner, you might make matters much worse. Even worse, some people go completely overboard applying ten products to this area doing more harm than good.
If you want your eye cream to treat you right, then you need to apply it the right way. Here’s what you need to know about doing so…
Applying Eye Cream Correctly (Steps To Take)
I’ll try and keep this as short and sweet as possible, starting with the basics that you need to know about applying eye cream.
The first thing you’ll want to remember is to only apply eye cream to the orbital bone area set around the eyes. Many people apply it either too high or too low. What you’ll want to do is find the orbital bone right at the top of your cheek bone. That’s where you want to apply the eye cream. As previously stated, many apply the cream too close to the eye and doing so doesn’t do much good.
The next thing you’ll want to remember to do is to refrain from applying it too close to your eyelash line. Particles of lotions, creams, and other cosmetic products end up in your eye. It’s just what happens when you blink. Though many products are good for your skin, they can really irritate your eye if they come in contact with them. Who knows, neglect might even cause swollen eyelids and even worse, eye damage.
I’m sure I am not alone when I say that I’ve used too much product during one application. See, we all tend to overuse our products, especially eye cream. What you need to remember is the eye cream constantly migrates once it’s been applied to your face. Applying an excessive amount isn’t going to make your eyes look less puffy. If anything, it can end up in areas where it’s not supposed to be.
Last but not least, you’ll want to stay away from formulas containing oily ingredients. We typically suggest that you not use too many products containing petroleum oil or mineral oil. The main reason you’ll want to stay away from them is due to the impact that they have on your skin. See, these are heavy oils that over time can cause the skin around your eyes to weaken. You’ll be more prone to getting premature wrinkles as a result.
Now that you know how to apply eye cream correctly, might I suggest that you try one out and see if your skin improves? We’ve got plenty of reviews that we’ve written. I suggest you take a closer look at them.
