We Scream for Eye Cream!

I wanted to discuss eye cream with you all today. Now, we have always stressed the importance of eye cream and how it is a must do in anyone skincare routine (I’m even trying to convince my boyfriend to start using it). Now for those of you who don’t know the benefits of eye cream, here are the major bulletpoints:

  • acts as moisturizer that locks in water into the skin
  • helps to stop the progress of fine lines
  • serves as a blockade against environmental factors or conditions

Now regardless of what eye cream you use, there are some fundemental rules on how to apply it.  Keep in mind, we are not skincare professionals- these tips work for us and if you perfer your routine- by all mines, stick to it.  So without further ado, here are our eye cream commandments:

Commandment #1: Only use your ring finger when applying your eye cream.  Actually, let’s take this rule one step further– only use your ring fingers when applying products around your eyes. Your ring finger actually has the softest touch and using it to apply the eye area will ensue you are not being too rough.

Commandment #2: ONLY tap, NEVER rub! Like I just said, the skin around your eyes are the most sensitive and are the first places that show signs of age…so you gotta be gentle! I tend to gently press and tab my eye cream into my skin, I’ve even seen some people put it on a cotton pad and leave it on under their eyes for a for about a minute until it’s fully absorbed.

Commandment #3: Do not apply too much product.  Some of you out there are probably rolling your eyes because you already know this- but do you know why? By putting more on will not make the eye cream more effective– I know, seems a bit counterintuitive.  I promise you that if you pack on the product- you will not see any improvements any faster.  As a rule of thumb– apply a pea-sized amount on your ring finger.

So there are my 3 commandments when applying eye cream– hopefully they are some use to you all out there in cyber world.  Don’t forget to follow on twitter  at @passtherouge and on Instagram at passtherouge.

See ya next time!
