Eye Cream – The Do’s And Don’ts

Every woman has her own technique of applying different beauty products. But, when it comes to applying eye cream, there are some things you should do and some things you should avoid doing. No matter what you do, remember that you always have to be gentle with your skin. If you aren’t, you’re risking damaging it.


Basically, tapping the cream is definitely the best way to apply it. Gentle massage is also acceptable. You can press the cream in, you can try light, sweeping strokes, or you can even put it on a cotton round and leave it under your eyes for a couple of minutes.

Also, give your eye cream about a minute (or longer, if possible) to absorb before you put makeup on top of it. That way your powder and concealer won’t cake up from the extra emollient base in the eye cream.


The general rule here is – don’t put too much eye cream. More product doesn’t mean it will be more effective. On the contrary, extra eye cream will creep into your eyes and irritate them. All you need to do is to put a pea-sized dab on your ring finger, then dot it on your brow bone and about a half inch underneath your eye.

Also, the skin under the eye is structured differently than the rest of the face, so it’s more delicate. If you’re really moving your skin around when you rub the cream in, you’re probably doing it too hard. Be gentle and your skin will be grateful.
