Simple instructions on how to apply eye cream correctly. 

How to Apply Your Eye Cream

STEP 1: Apply a pea-size amount on your ring finger.

Eye creams are super concentrated, so a pea-size amount is all you need for both eyes. For that delicate area, use your ring finger since it naturally has the lightest touch. You don’t want to put too much pressure on the skin.

STEP 2: Apply small dots from the inner corner underneath your eye to your brow bone.

To apply, start at the inner corner underneath your eye, applying small dots in a semi-circle up to your brow bone. Gently tap in that semi-circle pattern to stimulate circulation until the product is fully absorbed. Be sure not to pull or stretch the skin while you’re doing this.

Remember: Don’t get too close to your eye to avoid irritation. Also, unless the product label directs you to, avoid applying on or near your eyelids.

STEP 3: Wait before applying concealer.

After applying your eye cream, wait about 90 seconds before applying concealer or other skin care products to give it time to fully absorb.

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, you’ll want to apply your eye cream after cleansing and toning and before your moisturizer or night cream.
