Some people believe that just using facial moisturizer is enough to protect your under eye area as well as the skin on your face, nothing could be further from the truth. The skin under our eyes is a completely different texture and requires different ingredients not to mention facial moisturizers are much to heavy for the under eye area. What we use as an eye cream is just as important as how eye cream is applied.
This article will address not only several of the best eye creams available today but also the best way to apply them which is more important than people realize.
Once you have chosen the eye cream best suited to your individual needs, this is the best way to apply eye cream not only to avoid pulling and tugging the eye area which is damaging in the long run but if you choose an eye cream that comes in a jar, you want to avoid contaminating the product.
If you choose an eye cream that comes in a tube, squeeze a dime size amount onto the back of your hand. Using your ring finger which applies less force and pressure than your index or middle finger, gently pat 1/2 of the dime size amount under each eye and pat gently with the ring finger until absorbed.
If you decided to choose an eye cream in a jar, take a clean q-tip and again apply a dime size amount to the back of your hand and repeat the same application process as above. If you need more cream, use the other end of the q-tip to avoid contaminating the cream in the jar.
Once you have been applying eye cream this way for a few weeks, you will notice a major difference in the under eye area because you are no longer pulling and tugging at the delicate skin under your eyes. You will also notice by following these simple instructions, your eye cream will last twice as long because there is less waste.
Aside from using a great eye cream suited to your individual needs, the next best secret for helping your under eye area look it's very best is plenty of rest. These are the two best tricks for looking your best! Enjoy!
