Taking a Good Look at Eye Cream
Described as the windows to our soul and with good reason. They have the power to make us appear healthy and vibrant or sleep deprived and tired. We all want our eyes to shine brightly and radiate youthful vitality. The secret? Applying an eye cream and doing it correctly!
How should you apply eye cream?
The skin around the eyes is paper-thin and delicate, so it is really important to apply eye cream gently so that wrinkles are being reduced, not created.
Experts recommend using your ring finger to apply eye cream. Why? Because your ring finger has the lightest touch and will apply your eye cream with less pressure than other fingers. Use your ring finger to lightly dab the cream in evenly-spaced small dots around the orbital bone (also known as the eye socket) and on your eyelids. Use the same finger to gently tap the dots of cream until it is absorbed, being careful not to pull or rub the fragile skin.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking the-more-the-better – in the case of eye creams less is more. Too much cream or using a heavy cream will over-saturate the area and clog the skin, so just a matchstick-head sized amount is plenty.
Where should you apply eye cream?
Where you apply your eye cream is as important as how you apply it. It should be applied around the eye on the orbital bone and eyelids. Start at the outer corner where those annoying crows’ feet tend to sit, and gently tap the cream along the bone beneath your eye and towards your nose until it is absorbed. You can also apply your eye cream along the brow.

Can using eye cream help prevent wrinkles?
Absolutely! Wrinkles tend to occur when skin becomes dehydrated and loses elasticity and suppleness, which is a natural occurrence as you age. Applying an eye cream specially formulated to provide this delicate area with hydrating and anti-ageing nutrients is the key to preventing and reducing those pesky crows’ feet.
