If you are in your late 20s or 30s and you have not started wearing eye cream yet, then you should be smacked up side your head. Yes, it is that important. You will regret it and yes, it will make a difference in the long run. Even if you start in your early 20s, you will be doing yourself a favor. It is that important to get it on those eyes, at the very least, at night before bed. I have to admit that sometimes I forget, but that was one of my resolution’s, to make sure I get it on every night.
The skin around your eyes do not have sweat glands so they can dry out easily, and that is when cracks happen and then…….wrinkles. It also does not have much of a support structure, is not very elastic and is surrounded by the shallowest skin on the face.
- Apply with your ring finger. You want the least amount of pressure on that delicate skin. Try not to pull or tug at that area.
- Apply under your eye, and around the “crows feet” area. Don’t apply on your eyelid since it can absorb and get onto your eye. Unless, you have an eye cream that is made for your lid. I personally don’t put it on my lid, because I know it absorbs, and the skin is so delicate, I have enough eye issues with not being able to see that well.
- Apply before your concealer and your SPF cream. It will leave your skin smooth makes it easier to build a base on.
- Apply it over your concealer later in the day when your skin dries out to give it a glowing boost.
- Be consistent. This is the most important and you will see the results.
- Don’t cheap out. A good eye cream is the key. A lot of the higher end companies work with opthamologists to make sure they don’t cause irritation to your eyes. I just changed to Philosophy Hope in a Tube. I just started using it, but the girl at the counter said that it is really popular and effective. I am excited because it is a high density eye and lip firming cream. Gotta love that.
