It’s important to take care when applying eye cream to the eye lids, as it is very close to the eyes. It is fine to do as long as care is taken, and a tiny amount is used, plus not too close to the eye. If you pat tiny amounts on the lower part of the eye bone, this will then seep into the eye lid area a little.
Using eye cream on the eyelids is possible, and can provide some benefits as long as it is done with caution. It will also depend on the actual eye cream. If it is a natural one like our Nakin Eye Cream Complex then it is less likely to cause any issues when applied to the eye lids, although we recommend applying onto the lower part of the eye bone just above the eye lids, as this means that the springy eye cream formula will naturally seep into the eye lids somewhat. However, those with sensitive skin or conditions like eczema should be especially careful when applying products to the delicate area around the eyes. Additionally, ingredients such as retinol, glycolic acid, and vitamin C may cause irritation if used on the lids.
One of the other important things to remember is to always use an actual eye cream. Eye creams specifically formulated for use around the eyes are chosen over generic facial moisturisers. Eye creams are specifically formulated to improve the appearance of skin around the eyes and they are typically thinner than regular moisturisers, which helps them provide more intensive nourishment and hydration in this delicate area. Additionally, eye creams often contain targeted ingredients to help reduce puffiness, diminish dark circles, and brighten the overall look of skin. Such ingredients include caffeine, hyaluronic acid, vitamins and natural ceramides. This is why we use these ingredients in our Eye Cream Complex. Ultimately, eye creams are designed to address problems specific to the eye area that regular moisturisers cannot tackle as effectively. This makes them an invaluable part of any skincare routine. Regular moisturisers can help soothe and nourish skin around the eyes, but a good eye cream like ours offers additional benefits that will give you younger looking skin with a brighter, more vibrant appearance.
It is also important to pay attention to how you apply eye cream to your lids. To avoid any potential sensitivities or discomfort, dab a small amount of product onto your fingertips and gently pat it onto the skin without tugging or pulling. Additionally, make sure to always apply eye cream in a gentle, circular motion. Finally, keep in mind that you should never apply too much eye cream as this can cause excessive product build-up on the delicate skin around your eyes and can lead to irritation.
In conclusion, it is possible to use eye cream on the eyelids when done properly and with caution. Always take care when applying products to the eyes and choose formulations specifically designed for use around the eyes. With these considerations taken into account, you can safely incorporate an eye cream into your daily skincare routine.
By following the proper steps, you can safely use eye cream on the eyelids and enjoy its potentially beneficial effects. In addition to helping keep your skin hydrated and youthful, a good one like ours can help reduce wrinkles and improve the skin tone around the eyes. With a little bit of care and caution, everyone can reap the rewards of incorporating an eye cream into their daily skincare regimen.
