Discover the Art of Applying Eye Cream and Unveil Your Perfect Match
Welcome to our blog. I am Tess Walls, a seasoned skin therapist with over three decades of experience and I would like to guide you on a journey to celebrate your unique skin.
Today, we will delve into the fascinating world of eye creams, exploring how to choose the ideal product for your needs and mastering the art of application. With a myriad of options available, from gels, creams, oils, and serums, choosing the best option can sometimes be daunting.
Understanding Your Eye Concerns:
Before selecting the perfect eye cream, it is crucial to identify the specific issues you wish to address. Are fine lines and wrinkles your primary concern? Perhaps you are seeking to combat loss of elasticity or deal with crepiness caused by dehydration. Another common issue is dark circles which plague many of us. By understanding your unique concerns, we can narrow down the options and find the most suitable eye cream solution.
The Little Finger Test:
To begin, I encourage you to perform the "little finger test." This simple technique involves gently placing your finger around the eye area to observe if there's any hooding of the skin. If you notice slight sagging, a lifting eye cream will be the ideal choice.
For wrinkles, a specialised anti-wrinkle eye cream is recommended. If crepiness caused by dehydration is your concern, check out our video dedicated to combating dehydration. I also have an informative video dedicated to addressing dark circles. For today's blog our focus will primarily be on eye creams for wrinkles.
Mastering the Application Technique:
The correct application of eye creams can significantly impact their effectiveness. To start, ensure the eye area is well-hydrated. My personal favorite is using a hyaluronic acid serum to increase the water levels around the eyes. Apply the serum carefully, avoiding the eyelids as hyaluronic acid draws moisture and provides a plumping effect. (For a comprehensive understanding of hyaluronic acid and its benefits, check out our blog on the subject)
Gently massage one pump of hyaluronic acid serum using your middle finger, starting from the eye area and extending beneath the eyes. Target the wrinkles at the sides of your eyes, but remember to avoid the eyelids to prevent puffiness. This step creates an ideal foundation for your anti-wrinkle eye cream.
Choosing the Perfect Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream:
When it comes to combating eye wrinkles, selecting an anti-wrinkle eye cream enriched with active ingredients is essential. Look for peptides or other components that minimize eye movement. Prominent examples include hexapeptide and tripeptide, which work similarly to Botox by reducing the amount of movement around the eyes.
Our highly recommended product, the Timexpert Rides Eye Duo, comprises a day cream and a night cream. The light tube is designed for daytime use, effectively reducing eye movement while simultaneously rebuilding the structural components within your skin's deeper layers.
For nighttime rejuvenation, the darker tube provides exceptional repair benefits. To delve deeper into the causes of wrinkles, feel free to watch our dedicated video on the subject.
Mastering the Art of Application:
Remember, a little goes a long way when it comes to eye creams. Only use a grain of rice-sized amount to avoid over-application. Take the cream and gently pat it onto your middle fingers. Now, directly apply the cream onto the wrinkles, avoiding the eyelids. If you have additional lines in the middle of your eyes, gently massage the cream into those areas as well, followed by smoothing it around. Remember, your hyaluronic acid serum acts as the base, followed by the anti-wrinkle eye cream.
