Do you know how to apply eye cream? Chances are you’re using your middle finger and rubbing it along the skin. Wrong and wrong! Find out how you should be applying eye cream and how the Clarisonic Opal can help.
Ok, first things first: when using your hands, you should be using your ring finger, not your middle finger. And you should be gently tapping cream into the skin, not rubbing. Rubbing stretches the skin out and can damage it and cause premature wrinkles. The ring finger is also gentler than the middle finger which provides added protection to the sensitive area around the eyes.
If you want to go one step further and are willing to splurge on a luxe, spa-worthy product, the Clarisonic Opal ($215) is a great choice. I’m already a fan of the Clarisonic Mia 2, which is ideal for giving yourself an amazing, deep-cleaning facial, so when I was asked to try the Clarisonic Opal, I didn’t think twice.
So here’s how it works. This sleek tool has an ultra-soft tip that taps cream onto the skin at 125 sonic movements per second. Doing what your finger can’t, the Clarisonic Opal allows eye cream to deeply penetrate the skin while working in the gentlest way possible. The skin around the eyes is so sensitive that rubbing or tapping too hard can cause damage like discolouration. And I’m not going to lie, I mostly like it because it feels like a massage for my eyes. I could let this baby run for hours!
In addition to its unique movements, this product also comes with Anti-Aging Sea Serum. The product is made with natural ingredients that hydrate the skin and protect against premature wrinkles. The entire system is really easy to use, feels great and gets amazing results.
