How To Use Eye Cream?

Do you put eye cream on eyelids?

Eye cream helps moisturize and even out skin tone so that you look more awake — that is, if you’re putting it on correctly.

Yes, eye cream should go near your eyes, but it should not go on your top eyelid, nor should it be used directly below your bottom lashes.

Do you put eye cream on before or after moisturizer?

If your eye cream is richer and heavier than your moisturizer, it should go on top. If it’s lighter than your serum, make sure it goes under your moisturizer. Of course, always check the instructions on your eye cream’s packaging to see whether you should apply it before or after moisturizer.

What age should you start using eye cream?

Our Experts Answered: Rule of thumb: When it comes to skincare, the earlier the better. Many people start using eye cream in their 30s—when they start noticing the first subtle crease on the outer corner of their eyes—but even before you see a wrinkle, you can start as early as your 20s.

How is eye cream different from face cream?

“Eye creams are formulated specifically for the delicate skin around the eye, so they tend to be thicker. They contain more oil than a regular facial lotion, and they have a lot of active ingredients aimed at the problems we see around the eyes,” Farris explains.
