Eye Cream Tips

  • Pat eye cream with your ring finger. This helps your skin absorb the product and gently stimulates circulation.
  • Get two kinds of eye cream: a lighter one to use under makeup, and an anti ageing eye cream to use at night. The skin around your eyes is very thin, so it ages faster!
  • Store eye creams in the refrigerator. The cooling effect is refreshing and reduces puffiness.
  • If you accidentally buy eye cream that’s too greasy, don’t throw it away! Mix it with a thick concealer. The concealer cuts through the grease, and the eye cream gives concealer anti-ageing benefits!
