Eye creams hydrate the skin of the eyes in addition to reducing dark circles and wrinkles, but more needs to be done. Discover 4 ways to take care of the eye area for a sparkling look.
1. Clean and cream.
Before applying a cream, clean the eye area thoroughly, preferably with a cotton pad moistened with an herbal lotion.
- Avoid rubbing to penetrate the treatment: spread it with your fingertips, in small touches; under the eye, always proceed from the outside to the inside.
- There are a lot of herbal eye creams available in pharmacies. They often contain eyebright, calendula, aloe vera or oils – wheat germ, avocado, macadamia nuts …
- Vegetable oils – sweet almond, apricot kernel, jojoba or coconut – have softening and hydrating properties. Drop a few drops directly on this sensitive area, or soak a gauze or cotton pad to make a compress to apply on closed eyelids and around the eyes.
- Make your perfumed and hydrating eye cream by mixing 100ml (½ cup) of avocado oil and 3 drops of rose essential oil.
