How to Apply Eye Cream


How to Apply Eye Cream How to Apply Eye Cream How to Apply Eye Cream

From dark circles to puffiness to crow’s feet, there are quite a few complexion concerns that revolve around the under-eye area. Since the skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate compared to other parts of the face, the eye contour area is more prone to showing early signs of aging. Besides grinning and bearing it, is there anything you can do to address your biggest under-eye problems? We’re happy to report there is! Consider adding an eye cream to your daily skin care product lineup. Trust us, it’s well worth adding an extra step into your skin care routine. We’re breaking down exactly how to find the best eye cream for your skin care concerns along with how to apply eye cream the right way. 

Step #1: Find the Best Eye Cream for You

Adding an eye cream to your skin care routine is always a good idea, but it’s important to pick the right one. Start off by deciding what your major concerns are. Are dark circles ruining your mood every day? Do you wake up with under-eye bags every morning? Gasp! Have you spotted your first under-eye wrinkle? Here your pick from our best eye creams for every under-eye concern.

If you have dark circles…try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Miracle Blur Eye. This eye cream is formulated with Opti-Blur™ Technology and light-diffusing pigments. It helps to reduce the signs of fatigue and aging around your eyes, including dark circles, with continued use over time.

If you have under-eye bags…try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Eye Cream. This luxurious, lightweight eye cream formulated with hyaluronic acid helps reduce the appearance of under-eye bags with continued use over time. Plus, it has a cooling applicator!

If you have crow’s feet…try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream. With age, skin can start to look less firm and fine lines and wrinkles can appear more visible. The delicate eye area is particularly susceptible to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (i.e. crow’s feet) as well as dark circles under the eyes. This eye cream can help minimize the appearance of crow’s feet and dark circles with continued use over time.

Step #2: Complete the Rest of Your Skin Care Routine

Every time you add a new skin care product to your beauty routine, you’re faced with a new problem—determining when to use it. So, when exactly should eye cream be slotted into your skin care routine? The answer: Applying eye cream should be the final step in your skin care routine every day, both in the morning and at night. Before reaching for your new favorite skin care product, go through the rest of your skin care routine. Start with removing makeup and washing your face, then apply toner, serum, and moisturizer—in that order. Once you’ve made it through the entirety of your skin care routine, you’re ready to move on to eye cream.

Step #3: Dot on Eye Cream

When it comes to eye cream, a little goes a long way—we’re talking about a dime-sized amount only. Seriously, you don’t need to overdo it! Pick up a small amount of eye cream on your finger and dot it on around the orbital bone, from the inner to the outer corners of your eye area.

Step #4: Pat—Don’t Rub—in Eye Cream

The quickest way to work a skin care product into your skin isn’t necessarily the best way to do it. Rubbing eye cream in may be the fast and easy way to go, but it can actually be bad for your skin. Don’t forget just how delicate the skin around your eyes is. You’ll be better off applying eye cream at gently as possible. After you’ve dotted it on, use the pad of your finger to pat, rather than rub, the eye cream into your skin. Keep patting until the eye cream is fully absorbed, and there you have it!
