Bright Eyes

By Rona Berg / September 5, 2018

The skin under your eyes is some of the thinnest on your entire body, with no subcutaneous (fatty) layer to give it plumpness and support. That's why it wrinkles so easily, not to mention the fact that it seems like we’re always pulling on it: rubbing our eyes, putting in contact lenses, cleaning up makeup, and more.

My best tip is to apply eye cream with your fourth finger, which is the weakest and exerts the least pressure. Gently pat a dab of eye cream back and forth beneath the eyes, out to the edges and back again. You can apply it to the eye contour, but it’s best to avoid your top lid, because it could slip or absorb in and irritate your eyes.
