How to take care of your eye contour?

It's often the forgotten area of the face. And yet, with its 28,000 daily eyelid blinks and fragile, thin skin, the eye contour area deserves all our attention. Whether you want to start looking after this area or continue your efforts, discover our tips for choosing the right eye contour cream and looking after your eyes. 

Why should I take care of my eye area?

The eye contour area is a fragile zone where the skin, which is very thin, is particularly solicited by the blinking of the eyes or the expressions of your face. It is therefore the first area of the face to show the the first signs of aging. And after a bad night, it is very easy to see small pockets or dark circles appearing, more or less marked. Therefore, the eye contour area really deserves all your attention. 

Not applying anything at all is a bit of a shame... But did you know that there are also gestures to avoid in this area during your routine? 

To begin with, the skin care products applied to the eye area must be really adapted, as a product that is too rich and applied too close to the eye could simply overload the area... and cause puffiness when you wake up in the morning. We also avoid applying our day cream (especially when it has a rich texture) to this part of the face, and make sure we stop at the eye contour bone, without getting too close to the eyes.

This helps to avoid milia, the small clusters of keratin that look like little white dots around the eye and sometimes on the eyelids.

How do you apply eye contour cream?

  1. Take a small amount of product, 1 grain of rice and divide it in half on your two index fingers.
  2. Apply from the temple to the inner eye area, passing over the eye bone.
  3. Move up to the inner corner and smooth the eyebrow back to the temple.
  4. Make these circular movements at least 3 times or until almost total penetration of the product.
  5. Smooth from the inner corner of the eye to the temple.


Extra tip: iff you' ve been too generous with the product and there's still some on your fingers, apply it to the area around the lips, which is also very fragile and will appreciate the extra attention.

What is the best eye contour?

This is a difficult question to answer, as there are as many answers as there are issues. To choose the right product, first think about your main eye concern. Is it dark circles under the eyes that bother you the most? Puffiness? Or are you looking for a product with anti-fatigue and illuminating action? Do you feel a slackening in this area, a lack of hydration? Whatever your skin type, our complete offer will allow you to find your happiness. And if you are a little lost, our skin diagnosis will help you find the best eye contour for you.

How to choose the right eye contour cream?

Like every product in your beauty routine, the eye contour should be chosen according to your skin type. Here, the main criterion will be the degree of sensitivity, because the eye area is fragile and can react very quickly to a poorly adapted composition. Next, think about your main concern: are your dark circles, puffiness, or those wrinkles and fine lines or those wrinkles and fine lines that are coming to the forefront of your mind? Finally, you can also choose your product according to its texture: are you more of a serum or eye contour cream? Eye contour balm or mask? And to help you, here is our selection to be found at Oh My Cream!
