The Absolute Do’s And Don’ts While Applying Eye Creams

If you’ve got miniscule amount of dark circles and the bags below your eyes are non-existent, then you can be sure that a LOT of people envy you. Eye care – a fairly neglected skincare step has now got its well-deserved limelight. Because, to be honest, your eyes are the quickest and the most direct way to gauge skin health. And to reverse years of poor sleep, diet, and lifestyle, eye creams are the magic wands that will sweep away all the wrongdoings. Follow this guide to get the most out of your eye cream, and part ways with tired and groggy eyes for good! 

how to apply eye creamDo’s 

1. Dab dab  

The delicate under eye area deserves the most TLC. Always apply your eye cream in a quick dabbing motion or gently apply it using light sweeping strokes. 

2. Put a ring on it 

Do not commit the rookie mistake of using just any finger for your under eyes. Ring finger is supposed to be the gentlest of them all, and it does not levy any pressure, making it perfect for massaging the under eye. 

3. Go the extra mile 

Sure you want to pamper your under eye hollows, but don’t forget that the skin on your lids and near the brow bone needs some love too! Make sure to apply an adequate amount of your eye cream on these two neglected sections to avoid wrinkling and sagging. 

4. Give it time 

Skincare before makeup just makes it so much better, same for your eyes too. Before your concealer, apply your eye cream and leave it there for 1 minute or longer. That way your concealer won’t cake up or seep between the under eye lines. 

5. Do the pinch test 

Gently pinch the under eye area with your thumb and pointer finger. If the skin stays dark it indicates pigmentation and you’ll need a vitamin C eye cream to fade it. If it’s your normal skin colour, then you need a retinol/bakuchiol based eye cream to promote cell regeneration.

1. Don’t pull 

Tugging or pulling at your skin while applying an eye cream defeats the whole purpose altogether, as it will only cause more wrinkles and fine lines. Always be gentle and remember that smearing, rubbing and pulling are a major no-no.

Applying more products is no shortcut to get brighter under eyes. A pea-sized amount is enough for both your eyes. Putting on more product will only make the skin greasy and irritate your eyes. 

3. Don’t apply it on dry skin 

Just like you apply your body lotion on damp skin, so must your eye creams! This will lock in hydration and thoroughly moisturize it. You can use a damp cloth so lightly dampen the area, and then apply your eye cream. 

4. Not being consistent 

The best eye creams won’t deliver results if you’re falling short on consistency. An eye cream must be used twice a day, every day for optimum results. Also, prevention is better than cure in skincare, so using an eye cream early on is a better practice, than using it as an eraser for dark circles and fine lines. 

5. Rushing it 

If you aren’t keeping any breathing time after you apply your eye cream, then you’re most likely just smudging it. As a habit, give your eye creams some time to settle before moving on to your moisturizer. 

Keep these handy tips in mind the next time you apply your eye cream. It’s finally time to shoo away those crow’s feet and get shadow-free eyes!
