Stop! You’re Applying Your Eye Cream Wrong
Look, you’d have to see it to believe it, but most days we don’t use eye cream. Shameful? Kind of.
It’s that extra step that we know we should do, but hey, just because we’re told we should do something doesn’t always mean we fall into line. In the mornings, it’s the running late thing mostly, spurred on by the fact that we stayed in bed too long on some warped Instagram session where we ended up on the page of some hippie living in Topanga selling Moroccan rugs. Is this even useful to our lives?? Probably.
And when we don’t use it, this mild sense of guilt creeps in, especially when we get to applying concealer under the eye, like… oh, shit, this would look so much better had we applied our EYE CREAM!
And then imagine the added shame and embarrassment when we found out recently that we might actually be doing it all wrong.
Thanks to a session with the one and only Dr. Dennis Gross, we found out that eye cream should be applied not only below the eye (on the bags, around the bags, slightly under the bags) but around the entire eye zone, including the brow bone. Seriously? Seriously. Howdidwenotknowthat?
So we pressed Dr. D on specifically where. “I recommend a 360-degree application of the Ferulic + Retinol Eye Cream – under the eye, the brow bone and on the eyelid. It’s important to treat the whole area – not just one part. The powerful combination of Ferulic Acid + Retinol treats the delicate skin around the eye, evens skin tone improves dark spots and smooths lines and wrinkles. It’s amazing for brightening, and skin ferulic acid is a powerful antioxidant as it also aids in the fight against free radicals.”
Where do we sign up? Seriously, where?
So today, we’re showing you how to apply your eye cream, because we thought if we’re still learning, you might be too.
