A little eye cream goes a long way to prevent signs of aging, but gentleness is essential to avoid damaging the delicate, thin skin around your eyes. Dot small blobs of cream around the top and bottom of your eye, then softly dab it into your skin using your ring finger. Finish with a sweeping stroke. Gently massaging eye cream into your skin is also fine.
Tips and Hints
Always wash your hands before applying eye cream to keep the product and your eyes free of bacteria. Never pull or tug on your skin when applying eye cream to avoid hurting this delicate part of your face. Let your eye cream sink in for a few minutes before applying makeup, and use only a pea-sized drop at a time, or the excess may seep into your eyes and cause irritation.
