PRO TIP: If you don’t currently have an eye product in your skin care rotation, you definitely need to hop on this bandwagon ASAP.
Eye products are usually the first item (beyond a cleanser) in your skincare regimen.
Why? Your delicate eye area is one of the first to age! The thinnest layer of skin we have is under our eyes, so it's a no-brainer (in fact, its absolutely crucial) to have a specialized formula.
5 TIPS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR EYE PRODUCTS:
1. Always apply with your ring finger:
The thin skin around your eyes is sensitive; be as gentle as
possible. Always use light pressure, gentle sweeping and massaging. Never tug or pull on the skin; it can cause premature wrinkles and sagging.
2. Apply your product along the orbital bone and brow bone:
When you apply your product, it can travel almost an inch on your skin, so applying too close to your actual eye ball can cause irritation.
3. A little product goes a long ways:
Effective eye products can be expensive - don’t waste your investment by apply too much. More product doesn’t mean more results! Excess product can actually end up in your eyes; causing irritation and swelling (hint: exactly what you’re trying to treat).
4. Let it soak in before applying anything over it:
Think: More benefits. Also, applying make-up (concealers, foundations) immediately after eye cream or gel can create caking or a heavy look.
5. You may benefit from two different eye products:
One for morning, one for night. In the morning, you may want a lighter formula for under make-up with light reflecting particles or caffeine, giving an 'awakening' aspect. At night, heavier products work well since there's a longer period of time to absorb moisture and actives.
If you’re new to eye products or want to try a new formula, Volition's Helix Restorative Eye Gel is the ultimate go-to. Immediate and long-term benefits come together in cooling, hydrating formula that promotes collagen and elastin synthesis (think: long-term firming and smoothing), and blurs the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
