How to Apply Eye Cream Correctly

Believe it or not,we have been applying eye cream the wrong way!

If you consider eye cream the final step of your skincare routine, you may want to rethink its order in your lineup to take full advantage of its efficacy. Your eye cream should be applied first, before moisturizer and serum as opposed to after. Don't worry—we've been doing it all wrong, too.

The eye area is very thin and you want to make sure that the eye cream penetrates deeply into the skin to get maximum benefits, since moisturizers are usually thicker. Makes sense, and considering that the formula has a smaller molecular structure than the rest of your products, you're going to want to ensure each of those molecules make contact accordingly.

Avoid pulling or tugging motions on the delicate under-eye area, and instead, pick up a small amount and dab it on with a light tapping motion. This helps your skin hold the product better. Eye cream should be applied by gently tapping the cream onto the lower eyelid skin starting at the inner corner and moving outward around the crow's feet.

Give your eye cream about a minute (or longer, if possible) to absorb before you put makeup on top of it. That way, your powder or concealer won't cake up from the extra emollient base in the eye cream.
