Skincare Basic: Eye Cream

I used to hold the misconception that you only need eye cream if you have a sever case of dark circles or wrinkles. But, eye creams should be used as a preventative treatment before you develop bags, dark circles, fine lines or wrinkles. Eye creams are also important when it comes to smooth makeup application. Even the most expensive concealers or foundations won’t do a proper job if the under-eye area is dry and crusty.

But if you’re one of the lucky ones that don’t have to deal with dark circles or wrinkles, then all you need is a basic eye cream to help keep the under-eye area moisturized such as Bobbi Brown’s Hydrating Eye Cream. This gel-like formula is quick-drying and a great base for applying concealer. The most common mistake many women make is not moisturizing the -under-eye area before applying concealer or foundation. Using a moisturizing eye cream such as this one ensures a smooth and even under-eye coverage. While this eye cream has a wonderful soothing effect, it isn’t necessarily the product you want to use to treat a sever case of dark circles, fine lines or wrinkles. This product is best for hydrating and moisturizing.
