Compared to the rest of your face, “the skin around your eyes is 40 percent thinner and is the first place to show signs of aging,” says Dendy Engelman, MD, a New York City-based dermatologist. So it’s smart to use a specialized formula in this area to help combat wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, or dryness. But, traditional eye creams tend to be on the thicker side; they don’t work well under makeup during the day and can be a nuisance to clean pillow cases at night. Instead, try one of the following newer options. Use a rolling motion, instead of tapping, to apply product with one of your ring fingers, says Sarah Garland, senior manager of planning for The Spa at Equinox.
