An eye cream is a moisturizing formula that can help smooth and soften the eye area. In addition to helping the skin retain surface moisture, an under eye cream can also be formulated to target concerns like wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness and dark circles. Since the skin around the eye can be sensitive, it is important to use gentle treatments and eye care products formulated to care for this delicate area.
Are eye creams necessary?
Eye creams are specially formulated to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles and under eye puffiness, and soothe the delicate eye area for youthful-looking, brighter under eyes. Eye creams are a recommended part of a skincare routine to safely and specifically address the eye area, which is the first area of the face to show signs of aging. Incorporating an eye cream into your daily skincare routine can help combat signs of aging and help the delicate skin around the eyes appear smooth and radiant. To address specific concerns, such as dark circles, try our targeted, efficacious formulas.

Using an eye cream for eye wrinkles to replenish moisture in the eye area is an effective step in any skincare routine. While everyone can benefit from a daily or night eye cream, it is an especially important step when starting an anti-aging skincare routine as the eye area is often one of the first places to show signs of aging.
Where do you apply eye cream?
Apply eye cream under eyes and along the orbital bone.
How do you apply eye cream?
Apply a few dots of eye cream or eye treatment under the eye area and gently pat with your finger to smooth under the eye and along the orbital bone. Gently pat and smooth the formula without pulling on the delicate eye area. Apply morning and night to help smooth and replenish.
Where is the orbital bone and how do you apply eye cream to the orbital bone?
The eye area is one of the most sensitive areas of the face, so it’s important to be gentle when applying eye cream along the orbital bone. We recommend lightly tapping three dots of product directly under the eye and above your cheekbone, or the orbital bone, using an applicator or your ring finger. From there, use your ring finger to delicately tap eye cream until it’s fully absorbed.
Which finger should you use to apply eye cream?
If your anti-wrinkle eye cream doesn’t come with its own applicator tip, we recommend using your ring finger to delicately apply eye cream into the eye area. It’s important to be gentle when applying an eye cream as the eye area is the most sensitive area of the face.
How can I use an eye cream as an eye mask?
Certain formulations of eye creams, such as our Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, can be applied daily or as an eye mask. To use as an eye mask, apply a thicker layer of firming eye cream along the orbital bone and allow to sit for five minutes before gently removing.
