What cream? Eye Cream and how to apply it
Aside from moisturising, applying eye cream should be one of the most important aspects of your skincare regime.
If you don’t read this full blog here are the top tips –
– Don’t be heavy handed, this is a very sensitive area. Use your ring finger as this muscle is generally the weakest of all fingers.
– Don’t use more than half a pea size of cream.
– Not all creams appropriate for the top and bottom of the eye, carefully read the instructions.
– Pop your eye cream in the fridge. This will assist puffiness and calm the area swiftly.
You’ve heard it all before, the skin around the eyes are thinner, delicate and more fragile in comparison to other areas of the face. The cream must be applied delicately in a sideways motion, being careful not to pull or rub this area. The best finger to use to apply the cream is your ring finger; this finger has the weaker muscle.
We always get asked “What order should I be applying my creams?” The rule of thumb is to apply your eye cream first. This is because your eye cream is generally lighter than your other cream, apply lightest to heaviest.
The skin around your eye is like a sponge, be careful how much you use. Half a pea size is enough for both eyes top and bottom. Not all eye creams are appropriate for both the top and bottom, we recommend the HydroPeptide, Eye Authority
When using the cream at night be especially careful not to apply too close to the eye itself, you do not want the cream to travel into the eye.
Finally, pop the eye cream into the fridge if you suffer from puffy eyes. The cool cream will help in calming the area right away.
