Turn your eye cream into an everyday skin hero
You’d be forgiven for thinking that eye cream is just for eyes. In fact, eye creams are a brilliant multi-tasking staple for your bathroom cabinet or your handbag.
A gentle and hydrating eye cream can be used in many different ways. Here are some of our favourite new ways to try out.
It goes without saying that, first and foremost, a good eye cream is designed for the delicate skin around the eyes. This area can be more prone to dryness and irritation and really needs expert care.
Our Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream isn’t heavy at all – it’s been carefully formulated to comfort and hydrate the skin, without overloading it.
Organic Echium is what helps to plump and smooth those fine lines. And as always at Pai, we’ve not included any potential irritants such as alcohol and artificial fragrance, so it won’t irritate sensitive eyes.
Gently pat one pump along the orbital bone and onto any other areas of irritation or dryness around the eyes, using the ring fingers.
Much like the eyes, the lips can be a really delicate area. If your lips are on the dry side, which is common at this time of year, a hydrating eye cream can work faster and deeper than a lip balm.
Try patting some on and letting it seep in, before layering on your regular lip balm. You should notice the extra hydration straight away.
The same principle applies to those dry and damaged cuticles. Resist the temptation to pick at that hangnail and pat on the eye cream instead. The extra hydration will work wonders to keep them moisturised and your hands will definitely thank you.
Fine line improver
Eye cream really helps to improve the appearance of fine lines around the delicate eye area. But it will also help with other areas. A good tip is to smooth some between your brows on those furrowing fine lines.
That highlighted look is not always easy to obtain, especially in the winter. Here’s a simple trick to achieving an effortless glow.
Once you’ve finished your makeup, gently dab a thin layer of your favourite eye cream along your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and chin. This adds an instant sheen and injects moisture to the areas that need it.
