Are You Applying Your Eye Gel Correctly?

The skin around the eyes is thin and delicate, which explains why it’s the first area of your face to lose moisture and show early signs of aging. That’s why it’s so important you give your eyes the love and attention they deserve. The most common eye treatments come in a cream or gel form. We love eye gels because they have a silky, refreshing texture that makes you feel energized and awake. They are normally used to reduce puffiness, dark circles, or fine lines by using ingredients such as vitamins, caffeine, botanicals, and antioxidants. They are also the perfect pick-me-up and are easily absorbed by the skin.
While applying eye care products may seem like a straightforward process, there are common mistakes you want to avoid. Pamper those eyes the right way by following these three steps for the best results.
How to Apply Eye Gels: Step by Step
Eye products should be applied with clean hands on a cleansed face, just as any other skincare goodie. You don’t want any bacteria or dirt to spread onto your precious skin. Put a pea-sized amount of product on the tip of your ring finger and apply small dots under the eye, along the orbital bone. Be careful and make sure you are not getting too close to your eyelash line, as the product can get inside your eye and irritate it.
Using a patting motion, gently tap the product around your orbital bone to stimulate circulation, moving from the outer corner to the inner corner of the eye.
Tap, don’t rub! Remember the skin around the eyes is sensitive and fragile, so you shouldn’t treat it roughly. Stretching or pulling your skin will only increase the chances of getting those undesired wrinkles earlier.
Repeat the tapping motion until the product is fully absorbed into the skin.
