Why You Should Be Using an Eye Cream And How To Apply Them Correctly


the skin specialist eye creme eyesMany of our clients wonder why we recommend using an eye cream or serum as part of their regular skin care regimen.  They’re curious why their normal washing and moisturizing isn’t good enough.  Since this is such a common question, we figured it was time to offer up some helpful skin care tips regarding your eyes.

Why Use An Eye Cream?

To start, lets discuss the special skin around your eyes.  It’s actually thinner, and more sensitive than the rest of your skin.  As a result, it needs to be treated even more delicately both in what types of skin care products are used around the eyes, as well as how creams and serums are applied.

One of the many benefits of using eye creams is that they’re specially formulated for this thinner, more sensitive area around your eyes.

You’ll also find that the area around your eyes experiences unique skin problems like dark circles, crows feet and sagging.  Again, eye creams and serums are made to address these specific issues and, as a result are often formulated with specialty ingredients not always indicated for the whole face but just this special, delicate area.

How To Apply Eye Serums and Creams for Optimal Results

Eye creams & Serums should be applied gently, with a dabbing motion around the orbital bone working inwards toward the bridge of your nose.

The skin around the eyes is actually the thinnest skin on the entire body, and as we said quite delicate.   Because of this, you want to use caution not to pull or stretch the area as this may result in sagging or loose skin.

What Eye Creams and Serums Does TheSkinSpecialist.com Recommend?

While we hesitate to make and individual recommendations unless we’ve discussed your personal skin care situation with you, we do stock several eye creams and serums that we find highly effective and reasonably priced.

One of our favorites is Eye Repair Age Defying Eye Cream by Sevani.  This eye cream is all natural and even certified cruelty free so you can feel good about buying and using it, and its highly effective for addressing dark circles, reduce lines and wrinkles, and decrease puffiness.  It has some of the best ingredients for this area of the face too including Argireline, Neem, Hyaluronic Acid, and Red Tea.
