On average we blink over 100,000 times per day, and every time we smile, frown or make a funny face, we place a demand on the skin around the eyes. As a result the eyes are usually one of the first areas to show the first signs of ageing.
We should all start using anti-ageing eye cream on a regular basis at around twenty years of age; however, it is never too late to start and today we are offering a FREE 2B Eye Cream with the purchase of any two 2B Skin Care products*.
The skin around the eye is one of the most sensitive areas on the body. Because of this it is important to know how to properly apply eye creams. Proper application will reduce chances of irritation - including redness and swelling. Incorrect application can lead to causing more damage.
Only a tiny amount of any eye cream is needed to cover the area. Using the ring finger (as this finger has the softness touch) dot the eye cream along the edge of the bone surrounding the eye. One dot of cream pressed between the two ring fingers should be sufficient to cover the area. Gently pat (do not rub!) the cream into the skin - staying around the edge of the bone. Do not get closer! Eye creams, once absorbed into the skin, will spread. If the eye cream is applied too close to the eyelid - the cream will flood the delicate eye area and cause dark circles or worse increase the risk of product entering the eye causing swelling and irritation
