Eye cream is an important step in any skin care routine!
Did you know? Creams can help reduce puffiness, lighten dark circles and make the face look generally more awake and youthful. But if you’re applying eye cream incorrectly, then you might be doing more harm than good. Olay beauty expert and Dubai based make-up artist, Samira Olfat has shared some tips on how to apply eye cream, the right way with revolutionary new Olay Ultimate Eye Cream:
Use your ring finger. Although we hear it a million times, it’s important to remember. Because your ring finger has the lightest touch, it is less likely to tug or pull at the delicate eye area.
Apply small dots around the eye, above the eye up to the brow bone area and under the eye. Most of us only think about the under-eye area, because that’s where the dark circles are, but your entire eye area needs to be moisturised for optimal results. Gently tap in the cream to stimulate circulation. Try not to pull or stretch the delicate skin around the eye. Tap until you feel it absorb. Pay special attention to problem areas when tapping cream in.
Gently massage in circular motions. If you absolutely must rub in the eye cream so that it will absorb, then be incredibly gentle and don’t pull on the skin.
An eye cream should be the final step in your skincare regime. Apply your eye cream every day at night before you go to bed and in the morning. If you are going to apply make-up give your eye cream about a minute to absorb before you put makeup on top of it.
If your biggest eye concern is to achieve firmer-looking skin or brightening the skin around your eyes, Olay has two other new creams in its Olay Eyes Collection that can help you combat these concerns - Olay Eye Lifting Serum and Olay Illuminating Eye Cream.
