The most sensitive area of the face is the skin under and around the eyes. Because the skin under the eyes is so sensitive, it is often where the first signs of ageing appear. Therefore, it is important to use a cream to moisturize and protect the skin and reduce the risk of lines and dark circles under the eyes.

Korean eye creams are designed to effectively and gently treat the skin around the eyes. Traditionally, eye cream comes towards the end of the Korean skincare routine. Usually, you apply eye cream after using a sheet mask (when performing a complete routine), and just before moisturizing the skin with a face cream.

Whether eye cream is a necessary addition to your skincare routine depends on your individual needs. If you have wrinkles, dark circles or other signs of aging around your eyes, eye cream can be an effective way to target these problems and help improve the appearance of your skin. For others with relatively problem-free skin, it may simply be a luxury item that isn't necessary.

Can you wear eye cream all over your face?

Eye cream is specially formulated for the sensitive skin around the eyes, but there is no harm in using eye cream on your face. However, you should be aware that the ingredients formulated for the eyes are not necessarily suitable for all parts of the face, and may be too strong or even potentially irritating when applied to other parts of the face.

What is best for under-eye wrinkles?

When it comes to fighting signs of ageing, eye creams are particularly useful for quickly reducing wrinkles and dark circles. Look for eye creams that are formulated with peptides, retinol and collagen-stimulating ingredients like hyaluronic acid to help smooth out fine lines and reduce puffiness.
