When it comes to skincare, it is important to take care of each part by understanding its need of it. If every place is taken care of in the same way or the same type of cream is used, then the benefit is less and the harm is more. One such area is the under-eye area. The skin under and around the eyes is thinner than the face skin and hence fine lines to wrinkles are the first to be seen here.
In such a situation, it is advisable to apply under-eye cream in the area around the eyes. This is a cream that is specially formulated for this part of the body. If under-eye cream is included in the skincare routine, then it can get rid of the signs of ageing to dark circles. It is just necessary that the under-eye cream is applied properly. So, in this article today, RVMUA Academy's Founder, Celebrity Makeup Artist and Skin Care Expert Riya Vashisht is telling you about how to apply under-eye cream properly-
Do not rub off the cream
Generally, it is seen that women start rubbing the cream after applying it to the under-eye area. But don't do that at all. This greatly increases the chances of wrinkles coming on the skin. Keep in mind that you apply the under-eye cream while dabbling it very carefully. At the same time, if you have to spread it, then never apply it from inside to outside ie from nose to ear, but from outside to inside. Meaning, you don't have to pull the skin.
Put on the night
If you want to get the maximum benefit from under-eye cream, then the best way is to apply it at night. Some under-eye creams also contain vitamin C and in such a situation, applying it outside can damage your skin. On the other hand, if the skin is in repairing mode at night, then under-eye cream gives the best results. Lastly, after you finish your night skincare routine, apply under eye cream.
Cleanse the skin thoroughly
Whenever you are applying under-eye cream, you should keep in mind that always apply it on clean skin. Never apply it over makeup. Even during the night care routine, do not apply any other cream, lotion or moisturizer to the under-eye area. When your skin is well cleansed and you apply under eye cream, it goes deep into your skin and nourishes it.
Take care of hygiene
Whenever you are applying under eye cream, you should take special care of hygiene. For example, if you are applying under-eye cream with the help of fingers, then first clean the hands thoroughly. At the same time, if you are using any face massage tools, then it is very important to clean and disinfect them too.
