Eye creams, an important element that is a part of any anti-aging arsenal, can help soften the look of fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, crow’s feet and dark circles. The skin around your eye area is most vulnerable to signs of aging, as it is thinner than other parts of your face. The fragile skin can also be drier around the eye contributing to a less youthful-looking appearance. Also, the skin around the eyes is subject to a lot of facial movement, even more so than the forehead.

The delicate area around your eye has a different set of needs than the other parts of your face. The skin around your eyes has very few oil glands and loses moisture and dehydrates more quickly than other parts of your skin. Eye creams cater to those needs as they are formulated to address the signs of aging of the delicate eye area. With there being a multitude of possible causes behind your dark circles, crow’s feet and under-eye puffiness, like genetics, age and lack of sleep or hydration, there are a variety of formulas to target those concerns.

Just as important as what is in your eye cream, though, is the knowledge of how to correctly apply it. It is not enough, to simply slab it on and rub it in – especially not to rub it in. There is a basic, easy-to-execute technique that will help you reap your eye cream’s many benefits.

Step 1: After cleansing, take a pea-sized amount on your ring finger.

Step 2: Apply in small dots by tapping around the eye area. Start from the inner, bottom corner and work your way up and around the eye. Six dots should do it.

Step 3: Smooth gently until the eye cream is absorbed. Do not rub in around the eye, as the skin tissue is very thin and delicate in this area.

Step 4: Allow your eye cream 30 seconds to dry and fully absorb before applying your moisturizer, serum, SPF and concealer.

Your eyes are typically one of the areas people notice first and also an area of the skin that shows early signs of aging. Incorporating eye cream into your day and night skin care routine will help to hydrate a part of your skin that can benefit from added moisture.
