Today I wanted to share some tips about skincare - by way of application. One of the most incorrectly used products out there is eye cream!! How can you mess up eye cream you wonder? You would not believe.

The amount you need to use is FAR less than what you think:
The amount on my finger tip in the picture above is enough for BOTH eyes - yep that's all you need.
Now then, application is the key! Take your little bit of cream and tap (TAP don't rub!) it onto the areas indicated by the blue dots.
You'll know where to tap because you should feel your orbital bone - do not go higher than the orbital bone! And never ever on the eyelid! Eye cream is concentrated and the cells around your eyes know what they are doing - they will get it to right spot. If you put it on your eyelid or by your waterline then the cream gets IN your eye - and that leads to puffiness and irritation which defeats the point.
If you have any eye cream that isn't absorbed while tapping it in place tap it out in the direction of the arrows. Don't pull or swipe it down - you don't need to cause yourself wrinkles by eye cream use!
That's about it! Eye cream is a great weapon in your skincare arsenal when used correctly!
