Eye Serum, and How to Use It

May 22, 2020

The skin around the eyes is very thin and delicate, so it needs special care. To get the most out of your daily beauty routine and enhance the effect of your favorite creams, beauty experts advise to pre-apply a couple of drops of the magic product called eye serum.

Why would you need eye serum?

Depending on the age and needs of the skin, eye serums can differ — moisturizing, smoothing, firming, brightening, anti-age. All of them have a restoring effect and help to solve a specific problem, whether it would be dark circles, baggy skin below the eyes, a “tired” look, puffiness or facial wrinkles that show your actual age.

How to use eye serum?

Beauty experts often recommend applying eye serum under a base cream, selected depending on the specific problem which you want to eliminate. However, many concentrates can be used independently, applying only a few miraculous drops of the product in the morning and evening on the cleansed skin of the eye contour, evenly distributing the product with light tapping finger movements.

The standard care ritual looks as the following: cleansing – tonic – serum – cream (after 5–10 minutes, when the concentrate is completely absorbed). If we are talking about evening procedures — use a night cream after applying eye serum, and if in the morning — use a day cream, then add sunscreen and a tone, and after it — everything is according to the usual order. It is better to apply eye serum at night, because it’s during the sleep when the maximum recovery processes occur due to the active synthesis of collagen.
