Using the wrong products, or doing the wrong thing could even actually make us look older. Here are three common mistakes that you may be making with your eyes.
An eye cream can help to brighten up our eyes, make us look younger, and dispel dark circles and puffiness. Or, it can have the opposite effect. If you are using the wrong cream for your skin type, it can cause oiliness or dryness. Certain eye creams are used for certain situations.
