Why should you apply eye cream?
One common misconception is that applying daily face moisturizer around the eyes is adequate. Considering that it moisturizes your skin and maybe has an anti-aging ingredient, you would think that it would be sufficient for your eyes as well. No, not quite.
Because of its thinness and delicacy, the skin surrounding your eyes can dry out much more rapidly than the rest of your face. It's also more susceptible to environmental stresses like wind and sunlight. Sunglasses are highly recommended, in our opinion.
Because of your skin's fragility, you need a product that goes on smoothly and massages your skin while it absorbs. The massage action really works to get rid of puffiness or dark circles under the eyes.
For these reasons, it's essential to use an eye cream formulated for the skin round your eyes and tailored to your individual needs.
When is the right time to begin applying eye cream?
To sum up: the sooner, the better. Using good eye cream as part of your regular skincare routine can effectively delay the early indications of skin aging, making it an excellent preventative strategy to start in your twenties.
Many people, however, don't start paying any attention to skin care until their 30s, when the first signs of aging start to show.
Eye cream in your thirties can be quite helpful because fine lines, tiny wrinkles, and duller-looking skin often occur first in the thin, sensitive eye area.
It's never too late to get started. No of your age or skin type, you can benefit from using eye cream since it would definitely reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help your skin look younger for longer.

What do you look for in a great eye cream?
When choosing an eye cream, here are some of the greatest ingredients to look for:
It's a kind of Vitamin B that works especially well on the skin around the eyes to keep it from drying out. Find out more about Niacinamide and its many uses for the skin by reading this article.
This chemical promotes new skin cell growth at the epidermis's surface. Add Olay Retinol24 Night Eye Cream to your routine if you want to witness visible improvements in fine lines and wrinkles and constant hydration for the skin around your eyes for 24 hours.
What's the use of using an eye cream just before bedtime? The skin's innate capacity for self-repair is at its peak at night, when it's less active during the day. Because the skin is more responsive to active ingredients at night, using a night cream to help counteract the increased moisture loss that occurs while you sleep is essential for promoting skin recovery. Discover the multiple uses of retinol.
Proteins like collagen, which gives your skin its firmness, are constructed from chains of amino acids that are linked to one another. Learn more about Peptides and the benefits they can offer.
The acid is hyaluronic.
This is a sugar that occurs naturally in human skin and has a remarkable capacity to retain a lot of water. The skin's firmness is enhanced by the hydrating effects of hyaluronic acid. For bright, refreshed eyes right away, use Olay's Deep Hydrating Eye Gel, which contains hyaluronic acid, peptides, and Niacinamide.
How and where to apply eye cream for maximum effectiveness
The general idea is to apply your face moisturizer first and then address specific areas like the eye area. If you use an eye cream in the morning, it should be one of the last things you put on your face, followed only by sunscreen. Applying eye cream properly:
Don't saturate your skin with eye cream; a pea-sized amount will do.
The area around your eyes is quite sensitive, so use your ring finger to gently pat it dry.
Dab, tap or lightly massage the cream in, but do so with extreme care.
Find a way out of it. The eye cream should be applied in a circular motion from the inner to the outside corner of the eye.
Why you should not do this when using eye cream
Your eye cream should not be used before your moisturizer.
We have already discussed how truly essential it is to moisturize the face before moving on to any further treatments.
Avoid getting the eye cream in your eye.
You shouldn't put it anywhere near your eyes because it could irritate your eyes if it gets in.
Stop tearing at your flesh!
Skin can stretch if you rub it too roughly instead of dabbing, tapping, or massaging it. The skin round your eyes is especially vulnerable to damage from stretching.
Keep in mind that little is more.
Don't use more than a small amount (about the size of a pea) since too much could cause irritation and have the opposite effect.
Is it okay to use an under-eye moisturizer?
You should still use an eye cream or eye serum on a regular basis, even if preventing wrinkles and dark circles under your eyes isn't your top priority.
How near to the eye should you get when applying eye cream?
The cream really should be applied in a circular motion beginning at the inner corner of your eye and ending at the outer corner. Working from the outer corner inward, apply any remaining product under the eye.
Avoid using eye cream in these areas.
The eyelids and the area around the eyelashes are not appropriate places to apply eye cream. It would be really unpleasant if you got any of the stuff in your eyes. To put it another way, "As your body temperature rises, the product can travel on its own," explains Dr.
