Contouring — when you see that word, what comes to mind? Chiseled cheekbones, a defined nose, smaller forehead, defined jawline ... contoured eyebrows are even a thing now! But it doesn’t stop there — contouring can now become a part of your skincare routine, too! Eye contour creams work to visibly smooth out the delicate skin around your eye area, reducing the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, uneven texture, dark circles and wrinkles within just a few weeks — making it an all-in-one problem solver (we can get on board with that!).
How They Work (& How To Use Them)
Contouring creams work to restore the natural contours of your under-eye area by smoothing and firming the delicate skin to instantly relieve inflammation and puffiness for a fresh and hydrated feel. There’s no more need for a drawer full of eye creams, because these next-generation, lightweight treatments penetrate the skin to correct all of your concerns at once. Way to save space and money!
While some formulas contain hyaluronic acid (a plumping molecule), others contain calming butters and oils, soothing chamomile, sea extracts and other cooling agents to tighten and correct signs of aging from the inner corner and under-eye area to the lid creases themselves — all while working to prevent any future wrinkles by supporting collagen production.
All you have to do is dot the moisturizing treatment underneath your eyes and gently smooth it on the orbital bone around the eyes, from the outer corner to the inner corner using your fingertips. Do this every morning and night before applying moisturizer for best results!
