What Is Eye Cream?
The skin around the eyes is said to be seven to ten times thinner than the rest of the face. Using an under eye cream to care for this delicate area is essential for protecting the skin against signs of ageing and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Read on to discover the benefits of eye cream, how to apply eye cream correctly, and our best eye creams for healthier under eyes.
An eye cream is a moisturizing product specifically formulated for use on the delicate eye area. Eye creams are typically enriched with active ingredients that work to protect against signs of ageing, brighten dark circles, reduce puffiness, and hydrate the eye contour.
As we age, the skin naturally produces less collagen and elastin. This contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin looking less plump and youthful. Sun damage, pollution, diet, and fatigue can also contribute to dull or puffy under-eyes.
The best eye creams help to:
- Brighten dark circles under eyes
- Hydrate the eye contour
- Reduce puffy under eyes
- Protect delicate skin
- Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of bags under eyes
Where to Apply Eye Cream
Eye cream should only be applied to the under eyes and orbital bone. Avoid applying to the eye lid or eye lashes to prevent irritation.
When to Apply Eye Cream
Under-eye cream can be used as part of both your morning and evening skincare rituals.
When used in the morning, eye cream helps to protect the delicate skin around the eye from pollutants and environmental aggressors, while working to reduce puffiness and signs of fatigue.
When used in the evening, under eye cream helps to support the skin’s natural renewal process, contributing towards improved elasticity and firmness for a more youthful-looking complexion.
How to Apply Eye Cream
After the use of cleanser, toner, and a serum or treatment, dab a small amount of eye cream along the undereye area, from outer to inner corner, and gently pat into the skin. Make sure to use the ring finger to apply the product. This reduces drag on the skin which can contribute to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Follow with moisturizer or night cream.
