According to Dr. Geetika, here are the five steps you need to follow while applying under eye products:
1) Take a pea-size amount of eye cream or eye serum for each eye and put it on the back of your hand.
2) Start right next to the upper bridge of the nose, below the inner corner of the eye.
3) Gently dab the eye product beneath the eye, moving sideways and upward along the orbital bone of your eye until you get to the outer corner. Don't get too close to the under the eyelid.
4) Apply another pea-sized amount directly underneath the brow, along the brow bone.
5) Stick to one eye product. It's a sensitive area and you want the eye to be able to breathe.
