Skincare tips for those delicate eyes

There are two kinds of eye moisturizing products in the market these days, one is cream and one is gel. Both serve the same purpose but gels are mostly used for sensitive skin.

How important is an eye cream/gel?

Let’s do a little test. Close your eyes and lightly touch the skin right under your eyes with your finger, feel the texture.. Now, touch the skin on your cheek. Does it feel the same?

No! You will feel that the skin under your eyes is a bit thin as compared to the rest of your face where your skin is slightly tight and thick. So, how can you apply the same cream on your eyes that was actually manufactured for thicker skin?

Considering that eyes are a super sensitive part of your face, you need to be extra careful about the products you are applying around it. The skin around the eyes is one of the parts of your face that shows early signs of aging. Although an eye cream isn’t a magic product, it can really help with dehydrated skin that can be more vulnerable to wrinkles, saggy eye bags and dark circles.

You should use your eye cream right after you have cleansed your face with cleanser and toner and applied serum. Then you apply a pea-sized amount of eye cream under and above the eye. If you are like me who LOVES massages, start by lightly tapping the eye cream around your eyes and now with your ring finger massage your eyes clockwise and anticlockwise (slowly and gently). Make sure that the area is sufficiently moisturized that your finger glides over smoothly.

BONUS MAKEUP TIP !

So, I learned this trick from none other than the famous @Namvo on how to NOT CREASE your concealer. I tried it and I can swear by it that it works!!

So the trick is to apply eye gel, tap it in and before it dries out you apply your concealer on top so it slips like butter. The gel will support your concealer and help it stay in place. Voilà!!

❤️  And you are good for the day!
