5 Eye Cream Mistakes That Are Sabotaging Your Anti-Aging Goals

January 09, 2022

The skin in the eye area is extremely sensitive and you have to be extra careful about what products you use. Eye creams are great for a lot of things like hydrating the eye area and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. However, if you are using your eye cream incorrectly, it can actually do more harm than good. It is important to be aware of what's in the products you use on your face, especially around the eyes. Here are the top five mistakes with eye cream that can get in the way of achieving your anti-aging goals:


Using a regular moisturizer as substitution for an eye cream
Many people think that most concerns within the eye area can be treated with a regular moisturizer. The truth is however, that eye creams are formulated specifically for the eye area, so regular moisturizers won’t give the same results. Moisturizer works well for hydrating the skin, but to treat concerns in the eye area, a good eye cream is necessary.
Applying too much
Have you ever heard the saying, “less is more?” Well while that can be true in a lot of cases, it most certainly is true here. Eye cream jars are small and usually come with a small amount of  product because you don’t need to use much each time. Oftentimes people think using more of the product will be more effective, but this can lead to problems. Too much product can clog your pores or get into your eyes and cause irritation. A small amount is all you need.
Product absorption time
Like any other skincare product, you need to let it seep in to feel all of its effects. Let the product sit on your skin for a few minutes before you layer on any other products including other moisturizers or makeup. If you’re applying the eye cream at night, make sure you let it sit before getting in bed and lying down. That way you can avoid getting the product on your pillow.
Proximity to your eyes
Under eye creams should be applied to the orbital bone and under eye area, never on the eyelid. If you apply the cream on your eyelids or too close to your lash line, you risk getting the product in your eyes which can cause excessive irritation. Not to mention, uncomfortability.
As with almost everything else, patience is key. You can’t apply an under eye cream once or twice and expect immediate results. Some eye creams instantly lift the eye area and minimize the look of wrinkles, but this is usually temporary and it can take quite some time to see long-term results. You have to stick with it and make it part of your routine to get full benefits. Some say that it can take at least 30 to 60 days of consistent use, before you see more permanent results. It
is important to remember that eye creams aren’t an equivalent to plastic surgery. You’re not going to get a drastic change, but by using an eye cream consistently, you can see some major improvements within your specific concern. Patience and consistency is key.
