As with most products, eye care works best when used with consistency. Eye care should be used by all of us. The skin that is around the eyes has to endure the same stresses as the rest of our skin. It becomes fragile, dry and prone to fatigue and quickly shows signs of aging. The constant movement of the skin around the eyes causes fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. Eye care is there to help address these issues.
Step 8, Eye Care
Step 8 of your Korean skincare routine should be repeated twice each day, in the morning after your face treatment and in the evening after your face mask. What is important about eye care is the way you will apply it. Eye care, if it is an eye cream, should be applied with the tip of your fingers under the eyes and patted in such a way as if you were playing piano. This will activate the blood circulation and fight dark circles. Use a small drop of your cream and apply it under the eye first to moisturise the dry skin. Gently rub the remaining residue from your fingers and skin on the eyelid to keep it firm. A great tip is to keep your eye care creams in the fridge. The cold cream will help with puffiness. Starting your eye care young is a great way to avoid issues in the future. However, it is never too late to start.
Which type of eye care should I use?
There is a large selection of eye care products available on the market. Koreans are used to a skincare routine that includes eye care twice a day. There are three main types of eye care products: Eye patches, gels and creams. Which you choose depends on which type of treatment you prefer. Patches are similar to sheet masks and are applied in the same manner. Gels and creams are simply applied to the skin under your eyes with your hands. All of these products focus on activating blood circulation which helps with dark circles. In addition, they help tighten, moisturise and firm the skin to help with wrinkles and fine lines.
