Cocktailing: Set your sights on beautiful eyes
Tired, dry, puffy eyes with dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles are not exactly one's beauty goal. Skincare experts will tell you, eyes have the most fragile skin and need the most care. Lack of hydration, natural oils, squinting, rubbing, little sleep, a poor diet, and one-too-many cocktails are often the culprits. Luckily for you, we have a powerful solution: eye cocktailing.
Skipping the use of eye cream is a big no-no. Using just one eye cream, while important, will not necessarily combat several concerns at once. Luckily, layering or cocktailing (as we like to call it) eye masks addresses multiple concerns with the clever and proper use of the right eye creams. Here's how to get cocktailing for beautifully refreshed eyes.
Start by cleansing skin daily, both morning and night, with the Nourishing Oil Cleanser, which removes all makeup while restoring natural oils and hydration to the eye area and overall skin. Tip: Rinse with cool water to reduce puffiness and prevent dry skin. Gently pat dry. While skin is still moist, apply your favorite serum (Tata's favorite is Elixir Vitae) to your face, followed by your favorite moisturizer.
Next, pat the Elixir Vitae Eye Serum followed by the Restorative Eye Crème, day and night, all over the eye area for a super boost of moisture that combats puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles. Tip: Pat, never rub the sensitive skin around the eyes to prevent lines and wrinkles. As an added boost during the day, apply a thick layer of the Boosted Contouring Eye Mask all over the eye area after you allow your eye cream to soak in order to lift and open up the look of the eye area.
