Eye Treatment Tips
- Shades aren’t just a fashion statement. Wear sunglasses with UV protection to protect the eye area from sun damage.
- Don’t glop on the goo. Apply a small dollop of your eye cream or gel to clean, dry skin and gently dab in with your fingertip.
- Keep an eye gel in the refrigerator to help combat puffy eyes after a long night.
