Biggest Eye Cream Mistakes

newbeauty logoOriginal Article by Anna Jimenez. Eye cream is one of those skin-care products that some women believe to be dispensable. Well, we are here to set the record straight. It’s not. In fact, it’s essential. If you’re in the camp that could take or leave your eye cream, then you are most likely not using it correctly, which means you aren’t reaping the glorious benefits that a quality product could afford you.

Here are the major mistakes women make with eye cream:

Buying Based Off Price

It seems intuitive that something that costs the most would work the best, but this is not always the case. Really, you should buy your eye cream based off of the ingredients.

Only Applying Once a Day

Contrary to popular belief, eye products need to be applied twice a day, not just at bedtime. “Ideally, this means you apply eye cream in the morning and eye gel at night,” says aesthetician Nerida Joy. Why? Daytime is when your skin is the most vulnerable to the environment, so it’s important to keep it hydrated and protected with a thicker cream formula. Night is when skin regenerates and repairs itself, so you want an eye gel or serum with smaller molecules that can really penetrate and allow corrective ingredients to go to work.

Not Letting The Eye Cream “Rest”

When you are applying eye cream in the morning, let it seep into your skin for about 90 seconds before putting on concealer or foundation. This will help keep your makeup from settling into fine lines and wrinkles.

Applying in the Wrong Area

Eye cream should only be applied along the orbital bone of your eye, never on the actual eyelid. Applying it to the brow bone will suffice because the product will naturally migrate downwards. This means you should apply it under the eye to the cheekbone, then to the outer corners, and finally, underneath the brows. Make sure not to press too hard, this skin is very sensitive.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
