Other Uses For Eye Cream

Why Eye Cream Isn't Just For Under Eyes Anymore


Walking down the beauty aisle, there is a cream for almost every body part: hands, neck, and derriere. But to cut down on clutter (and cost), make these area-specific products do double-duty. Take eye cream, for instance. Did you know you can use it on more than just under your eyes? Get two new ways to wear eye cream when you read on.

Lips: One common use for eye cream is to ward off the tiny lines that gather at the corner of lids. The same moisturizing ingredients can do wonders for creases around the lips. And for chapped lips in the Winter, you can dab on a bit of eye cream instead of lip balm as a primer. It will stop that bold lip color from bleeding into every crack and crease.

Hands: People say that your hands can reveal your age before your face. So why not combat the signs of aging with a little boosted treatment? Thick hand creams and typically more watery eye creams are on opposite ends of the consistency spectrum. But the wrinkle-fighting ingredients in under-eye treatments can help smooth and brighten fine lines on hands, too.
