Using the Ring finger is the ideal way to apply eye cream.

Instinctively, most people use their index finger, but that’s a mistake!

The index finger is the dominant finger because it is the strongest and most versatile. As a result, we use it as the primary finger for just about everything. But applying eye cream with your index finger is like watering your flower pot with the garden hose instead of a watering can.

When it comes to the eyes, what’s needed is gentleness and softness, like the soft flow of water on your delicate flowers from a watering can.

The Ring finger is the right finger for applying eye cream because its skin is soft, and it naturally uses just the right amount of pressure to apply the cream without pulling or rubbing the skin.

So the next time you’re applying eye cream, whether in the morning, at night, or both, remember to use your ring finger and dab or tap the cream around the eye rather than rubbing it in. A little goes a long way.
