Eye creams can be the way to achieve that youthful and rested appearance you want. Not only do they help banish wrinkles, dark shadows and fine lines but they minimise puffiness and bags, too. So, we've tried and tested the best buys to help you find your dream cream.
As the skin around your eyes is 40% thinner is than the rest of the face, it's the area that's most vulnerable to signs of ageing. That and the fact that, well, it’s your eyes, it's super-important to treat the area with special care and make sure you're using the right products.
Your application and storage of anti-wrinkle creams is important, too. Keep in a cool dry place and apply by dabbing a small amount of cream under the eye and along the contour of the eye bone. Using your ring finger, follow by patting – not rubbing - the cream on the inner corner of the eye and towards the outer corner, working upwards to the brows. Leave the cream to work for around 10 minutes and then apply make-up or leave on overnight.
