Before we get started on this topic and answer with the obvious "YES to eye cream!", we should all be aware that maintaining a healthy diet and getting a good night's sleep plays an important role in keeping your skin healthy.
Many believe a regular facial cream will do just fine for the areas around your eyes, and this is definitely not true. Eye creams are specifically designed with a thicker concentration. A good eye cream has active ingredients that specifically target troubled delicate skin, especially around your eyes, as it is the most delicate skin on your face!
Because of the ingredients used to formulate eye creams, their main duty should be reducing fine lines, brightening dark circles, as well as firming the skin. Keep in mind these creams are designed for the area around your eyes only. If you are to use them on your face, you might find the texture to be too thick overall, and the results won't be as effective compared to using it for the skin around your eyes.
Let's say you have picked up your favorite eye cream, and you are eager to put it on like a little girl in the candy store. Are there any correct ways to put it on? Yes! We would like to remind you one more time (we know this is annoying!) that the area of the skin is the MOST delicate part! Tap a small amount around your eyes (tapping 6-8 times around each of your eyes). Try to practice with your ring finger because it has a less agressive touch compared to your index finger. Then gently massage into your skin; going as far as your side hairlines will also minimize fine lines around that area in the long run. Never try to pull the skin around that area. Allow it to absorb into your skin. This can be time consuming but this is part of the curing process. Never put on too much at once, as your skin won't be able to absorb it. You can always apply a second layer if you find the first layer applied was too thin.
Never think eye creams will perform miracles overnight as we certainly don't offer any miracle products here. If they are formulated correctly & legally, they should all improve your skin over a period of days or weeks. Remember if you're not getting enough sleep, it will also delay the results as well.
