Not only what under eye cream you use—but how you use it—is key
The delicate skin under the eyes is one area of the body where we can all benefit from a bit of plumping. It has no fatty layer, few oil glands and no support structure, which is why it wrinkles so easily and needs special care.
Pat your under eye cream gently back and forth with your fourth finger, which exerts the least pressure. If you have oily skin, look for a gel formulation. Otherwise, try a cream or serum—if you need a bit of an extra boost.
