Ask The Guru: Every time I use an eye cream my skin ends up red and puffy. How come?

Chances are, you’re using too much. Eye creams are great...

EYES Chances are, you’re using too much. Eye creams are great at combating puffiness, dark circles and fine lines but they’re potent things and the skin around your eyes is very fragile so smothering the area with too much eye cream can counteract its benefits.

Unfortunately, a lot of men tend to think that using more of a product leads to better results but eye creams, along with serums and scrubs are products where less is often more.

So to get the most out of your eye cream gently pat a tiny amount (no bigger than a small grain of rice) around the edge of each eye socket using the tip of your ring finger. This finger has the lightest touch so it’s perfect for applying eye products. Don’t rub the cream in as this can irritate the delicate skin around the eye.
