The skin around the eyes is four times thinner than the rest of the skin that covers your face. Therefore, it needs special treatment. Eye creams tighten your skin a little and prevent bags and dark circles under the eyes. Apply the product by gently dabbing the cream under your eyes with your ring finger. Do not overuse; that can make your sensitive skin under the eyes red and irritated. In order to get as much cooling effect as possible, keep your eye gel and cream in the refrigerator.
