Why Eye cream is important?
Eye cream is important because it helps decrease the appearance of wrinkles and darkness of the area around your eyes. The skin under your eyes is much thinner than the skin of the rest of the face. The thin muscles around the eyes are delicate and should be treated gently. Therefore it is a fact that the skin around the eyes tends to wrinkle faster and easier than other parts of the face. It is also very important to avoid touching that thin layer of skin around the eyes. Never rub your eyes or pull the skin around them. However, if you really ever need to touch that area (Tip #1) use your ring finger as it serves as the weakest finger therefore will be more gentle when applying or removing make up. (Tip #2) To apply under-eye cream, put a small drop on the pad of your ring finger and work towards the nose from the temple. Then smooth it into the skin gently in the same direction.
However as we all know, we can never fight aging as it is a natural process of life but at least, we can delay it by taking care of ourselves such as (Tip #3) using proper eye creams. Do not use your facial creams for your under eyes. The ingredients in facial creams are sometimes too strong to be used on your under eye area.
