There was a point in time when eye creams were not an essential part of the facial skincare routine. Back then, we relied on moisturizers to miraculously smooth wrinkles, reduce the look of dark circles, and soothe the under-eye puffiness. But it didn’t work, did it?
Now that we have finally realized that the skin under the eyes is thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face, eye creams have received a special place in our skincare routine. The appearance of wrinkles, crows’ feet, puffiness, under-eye bags, dark circles, and uneven texture will become evident earlier than they should if you don't pay attention.
If you have already been using an eye cream and it is not giving you desired results, then chances are you may be making some mistakes. Just using eye cream daily won't do the trick. You must understand the proper usage procedure, the correct order, and accurate proportion to get immediate effects.
Let us explain how:
5 Common Mistakes You Make While Using Your Eye Cream
1. Using An Unsuitable Formula
Every product you use is made to tackle your skin’s specific concerns. Using a formula that has not been crafted for your skin’s trouble will not work for you. Therefore, if your issue is dark circles, choose an eye cream formulated to brighten the complexion. At the same time, those struggling to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags, puffiness, and wrinkles may look for a firming and tightening eye cream.
The lightweight, non-greasy, and intensely moisturizing Eye Cream With Antiaging Complex and Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent eyecare investment. With a refreshing combination of vitamins A, E, ceramides, retinyl, olive oil, and hyaluronic acid, this cream helps smooth the look of wrinkles and fine lines and rejuvenates the complexion. This cream also helps with reducing the look of dark circles and puffiness while soothing dryness and sensitivity. It suits all skin types.
2. Incorrect Order of Application
Understanding the proper order of application is vital for gaining the expected benefits from each product. Typically, the correct layering order is from the thinnest to the thickest, keeping the absorption rate in mind. If you use a thick textured or heavy consistency eye cream, apply it before the moisturizer. Otherwise, you can apply an oil-based or thin textured eye cream beneath the moisturizer.
Moisturize and protect your skin with Tea Tree Oil Face Cream, a lightweight and non-greasy moisturizer for your everyday use. It locks in moisture, soothes dryness, and leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth, and hydrated for long hours. It works well for all skin types.
3. Applying Too Much Product
The best thing about under-eye creams is that a little goes a long way, and you dont have to break your budget to buy expensive eye creams frequently. Considering the small area under your eyes, a pea-size amount of eye cream should suffice. There is no need to apply a thick layer and stress out this delicate area expecting quicker results. Use the right proportion as advised on your product and be consistent. Over time you will notice your skin getting better and better.
4. Applying Eye Creams on Dry Skin
Like any other skincare product, the application of eye creams on damp skin allows easy absorption, lasting hydration, and maximum benefits. Before applying eye cream, dab the skin under your eyes with water and then use it. But most preferably, apply it on a freshly clean face.
The most effective way of eye cream application is first to cleanse your face, apply a toner, then serum, and the next is an eye cream. Give each product an appropriate time to penetrate. Follow up with your regular moisturizer, and you are good to go.
5. Rubbing Your Eyes and Harsh Application
When we said the skin under the eyes is delicate and thin, it was a fact. Rubbing your eyes and harshly applying the cream will only lead to the early appearance of wrinkles, dark circles, and irritations. Instead, dab the cream on the skin and gently massage it with your fingertips to ensure complete absorption. Moreover, dont rush the process. Let the eye cream blend in with the skin before moving on to the following product.
By avoiding the above-mentioned common eye cream application mistakes, you can garner more benefits from the product you are using. And it wasn't even difficult. If you want to learn more about beauty care, stay tuned to our blog posts, and we will be happy to guide you!
