How do you treat the most delicate piece of skin on your face? There are various ways to moisturize the skin around your eyes. You should select a product that meets your special needs, which may also include a serum. Make sure you apply the product with clean hands, start with a dotting motion and gently massage the cream from the inner part of your eyes towards the outer part.
Pay a bit more attention to puffy bags or little fine lines by applying just a bit more of the cream in the night. Like a mask for the night. And ladies be aware! The cream adapts to the temperature of your skin. This means that the creams travels… Apply the cream a few millimeters away from your eye lids to avoid the cream slipping into your eyes when it expands. If you want to wear eye make-up, give the cream 2-3 minutes to sink in.
An airless dispenser or airless pump bottle is perfect to use because you don’t have to dip your fingers in a pot of cream, which is less hygienic and lets you run the risk of catching an infection.

Recently a Pakistani fan of Beauty Laws asked me what to do with dark circles around the eyes. I love the interaction with my readers. She inspired me to write about it. I advised her:
- Use an eye cream with active ingredients (such as retinol), you can also use an oil with nutritional benefits (vitamin E) such as sesame of almond oil
- Eat healthy (a balanced diet with fruit and veggies)
- Drink enough water (2 liters per day)
- Get plenty of sleep (7-9 hours per day)
- Stop smoking (if you are a smoker)
- Use the peel of a cucumber on the eyes, since the peel contains more nutritional benefits. (That’s what I do on a regular basis, in the morning while I prepare my smoothie.)
- Genetics, age or allergies might also be a cause. In this case it’s not easy to get rid of the dark circles. Try to accept this and use a good concealer.
