The skin around our eyes is extremely delicate.  Since the skin around your eyes is more delicate in comparison to other parts of the face, the eye contour area is actually more prone to showing early signs of aging. Since this delicate area around your eyes is different than the rest of your face, this means you need to pay special care and attention when using an eye cream. 

But, when should you apply eye cream? Do you apply it everywhere, including on your eyelids? Don’t worry, before you add this extra step into your skincare routine, we’ll answer all of your questions about exactly how to do so. Keep reading to learn how to apply eye cream and get the scoop on the incredible benefits of MintPear’s Under Eye Nourishing Creme.

When To Apply Eye Cream

the more products that are part of your routine, the harder it can be to remember the right order in which to put them on your skin. One easy rule of thumb to keep in mind is that usually, you should apply products based on thickness. For best results, use your eye cream morning and night. Some people prefer to use it during the day to make their concealer look better; others prefer using it at night. As for how this step fits within your routine, the rule of thumb is to apply your skincare from the lightest product to heaviest, that way the heavier products can penetrate through the lighter ones to be properly absorbed. So if you’re eye cream is richer and denser than your moisturizer, apply after it. If it’s lighter than your serum, apply before and so on.

3 Easy Steps: Apply Your Eye Cream Properly
Step One: Prepare Your Skin

It’s su[er important to start off with a clean canvas when it comes to your skincare routine and applying your eye cream. A solid cleanse-and-tone will set the stage for maximum absorption. Use your favorite cleanser and clean off any makeup, dirt, and oils from the day before moving to the next steps. 

Step Two: It Only Takes A Very Small Amount

It’s important to remember that the area around your eyes doesn’t need a lot of product. It is a small area and you really only need to apply a teeny amount (about half a pea size). Make sure your fingers are clean and free of any other product or cleanser. Apply the amount using a gentle touch with your ring finger. 

Step Three: Tap Tap Tap

Now, something to remember when you are applying your eye cream; you want to be sure to tap the product into your skin in a circular motion. Do not, I repeat, do not run your product into the skin. You want to be extremely gentle with the skin around your eyes because it is a very delicate area.

Pro Tip: Stash It In The Fridge

My personal fave way to keep eye cream fresh is by storing it in the refrigerator. The cold feeling feels soothing around the delicate eye area. Not only is this a great way to stay cool in summer months, but the chillier temp will also help reduce puffiness.
