The skin of the face, especially around the eyes, is quite delicate. Maybe that’s why the face loses. Especially in the post-pandemic world, where most people spend half their day staring at laptop or smartphone screens, strained eyes and the area around them have become a norm. Apart from increased screen time, other factors such as smoking, dehydration, exhaustion from lack of sleep, and sun exposure further damage the area under the eyes, leading to dark spots or a sunken gaze. As a result, paying special attention to the skin around the eyes has become more important than ever. In this context, under eye gels are taking the personal care and beauty industry by storm. By targeting the exact areas of concern, these gels reduce puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. And, while applying gels under the eyes is relatively straightforward, there are a few things consumers should keep in mind to ensure the best results.

How does the eye contour gel work?

Under eye gels contain crucial ingredients such as vitamins A and C, peptides and ceramides which help in skin rejuvenation and moisturize the area around the eyes. Additionally, many modern-era under-eye gels contain hyaluronic acid to keep moisture intact and the natural properties of caffeine to firm skin and eliminate signs of wrinkles. These gels are also the much-needed relief.

Continued use of under-eye gels and standard but important lifestyle changes (such as maintaining hydration and sleep patterns) guarantee a faster rate of cellular recovery and may provide a long-term solution for wrinkles. The antioxidants present in these gels help protect against radical damage in sensitive skin. So next time before you crash into bed, take 5-10 minutes to treat your face with an eye spa gel. Be sure to pair it with area subcooling effects. Ms. Mansi Kaushik, Sr. Manager New Product Development, The Man Company shares a step-by-step guide to applying eye gel for effective results.

Wash the face thoroughly and apply the gel in small dots around the eyes: the advice here is to use the eye gel like any other skin care and not to consume too much in one use. When applying, pay attention to the lash line as the gel could get into the eyes and cause irritation.

Gently massage in circular motions: You can use your fingers or a steel roller head available with some alternatives on the market. The movement should be from the outer corner to the inner corner of the eye. Avoid rubbing as the skin is quite delicate and asserting too much pressure can cause skin damage or wrinkles.

Repeat the patting motion until the gel is absorbed: With a very gentle finger motion, continue the patting motion until the skin, for best results, absorbs the product.

Leave it overnight and sleep well: it sounds like a mantra and works like a charm. You will need a good sleep to see the best results from the eye gel.

Wash the face thoroughly and feel the freshness: You will be able to see a visible difference in the morning after washing the face thoroughly with lukewarm water.

Packed with powerful ingredients and soothing elements, under eye gels can take care of the sensitive skin around your eyes. While bags under the eyes or other problems can usually be treated with lifestyle changes and proper care.
