At the end of the day we all want to simplify our beautifying routines. Between removing our face makeup and eye makeup, washing our skin and applying the slew of lotions and potions to ensure we wake up with a flawless complexion (hopefully), our evening routines can just be, well, too complicated and time consuming. And this doesn’t even account for the occasional spot treatment for blemishes or our RevitaLash application to help grow our lashes. You should see our bathrooms. They’re overflowing with products.
On those sleepy nights when we just want to roll into bed with our makeup still on (don’t worry, we always remove our makeup – and you should too!), the extra time it takes to apply a different cream to our eye area is sometimes just too much for us to handle. So, sometimes we “cheat” by applying the same moisturizer we use on our face to our eyes. We know, it only takes a few seconds to apply a different cream, but those few extra seconds are cutting into valuable beauty sleep that we don’t want to give up. So what’s a girl to do? Is it a bad idea to use our facial moisturizers on our delicate eye area?
To find out if it’s okay to use our face creams on our eyes, The Beauty Bean turned to top NYC dermatologist, Dr. Neal Schultz of Park Avenue Skin Care and DermTV, for help.
