Eye Creams: The Dos and Don’ts That You Must Know

Your eyes form a very important part of your body. This is why you should always endeavor to be on top of your eye care routines in order to keep them fully functional. In addition, you should also ensure that the area surrounding them is equally in good shape if not better. This is because even if you have a 20/20 vision, no cataracts and definitely no macular degeneration, the area under your eyes can still paint you as unhealthy, tired or aged. Now, am sure you do not want to walk around looking like you are 95, hanged up and sickly, well at least not when you are going to show your face to the world. This is why you should invest in a good eye cream.

What is an eye cream?
These are beauty products that are specially made to eradicate the dryness, darkening, puffiness and wrinkling of the areas under your eyes. Now, this is one part that is easily prone to darkening and swelling and hence requires special attention as it functions as your front office. What did they tell you about first impressions?

However, before going out to purchase that heavenly eye cream, it is important to get acquainted with its dos and don’ts. This will help ensure that you get nothing but the very best out of the eye cream.
Let us start with what you should do

1.    Apply it gently
Unlike other parts of the face, this part is particularly susceptible to wrinkling. This is why you should softly massage the eye cream in order to avoid any pulling of the skin. This is because tugging will loosen the skin hence increasing the chance of wrinkles appearing.

2.    Give it time to sink in before you apply makeup
Now because you apply the eye cream before make up, it is prudent to let it first get absorbed in order to ensure your make up is all smooth. If the cream is not properly absorbed, you may end up with small heaps of the powder or concealer. Therefore, for it not to interfere with you makeup, it is important to first allow it to sink in.

3.    Refrigerate them for puffiness relief
At one point, you will wake up with swollen eyes. Either because you didn’t sleep well or you had taken one on the road the previous night. Now, with work or school just minutes away, you will have to get an instant solution. The good thing is that you can apply an eye cream that has been refrigerated to get those blood vessels back their original size and position in order to kill the puffiness.

Now that you are well versed with how to should choose eye creams for proper eye care let us now sink your teeth into the lines you should not cross.

1.    Never apply it with force
In the application of the cream, you should not be under whatever circumstance tug the skin. This is because this tugging and pulling can culminate in the formation of wrinkles. Aren’t you trying to get rid of wrinkles and other problems? So don’t make the situation worse: be gentle.

2.    Don’t apply heaps upon heaps
For some reason, you may be tempted to think that the cream’s effectiveness will be determined by the amount you use i.e. the more, the better. Nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, applying lots of it will only increase the risk of your eyes getting irritated. This is because the extra cream can easily creep into the eyes and cause irritation. Therefore, as tempting as it might be, use only a little cream.

3.    Don’t apply fragranced eye creams if your eyes are sensitive
According to research, the fragranced eye creams are more likely to cause eye irritation than their scent free counterparts. This is why you should try to go for the ones without fragrances in order to avert the risk of irritation.
