Dry Skin Around Eyes

Frequently washing your face, especially in the cold weather, can dry out the skin, removing the lipids which make up the skin barrier. This can cause the skin to become dehydrated, dry and itchy. 

How do you treat dry skin around eyes?

Dry skin is caused by a breakdown in the skin’s barrier function, which causes the skin to lose moisture and reduce its ability to bind water. To properly treat dry, itchy skin around the eyes, you’ll need to include items in your skincare routine that don’t degrade the skin’s capacity to retain hydration and, ideally, replenish the skin’s lost natural moisture.

Use a high-quality Vitamin C face cream on a daily bases, ideally organic and plant-based one. Lately, it’s becoming more and more popular to use niacinamide and vitamin C either by mixing them together or applying them separately. 

Fillers for Hollow Eyes

If you have dark under eye circles and/or hollow, tired looking eyes, then maybe under eye filler is a good solution for you. Not everyone is a good candidate for this treatment, so make sure you consult with a dermatologist or a licensed esthetician before choosing this treatment. 

Moisturising dry skin around eyes

Because the skin around the eyes is thinner and more fragile than the rest of the face, moisturisers that restore skin’s moisture balance while also being gentle enough to use on the eye area are essential.

The best ones are all-natural plant-based seems such as Plant Mother’s Vitamin C Serum and Retinol Serum. They’re rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and carotenoids. 

Make it a habit to wash your face twice a day, in the morning and at night. Instead of hot water, use a light, soap-free face cleanser with gentle strokes and lukewarm water. After patting the face dry, apply a lightweight oil-based moisturizer. Apply a small amount to the delicate eye area. Switch to a vegan retinol if you’re using retinol-based products because it’s best for the most sensitive under-eye skin.

Protect dry skin from sun exposure

Reduce sun exposure by using sunscreen and protective sunglasses outside to prevent dry skin around the eyes from UV damage. When applying sunscreen to dry skin, be sure the lotion is UV-blocking and also has moisturizing elements to keep the skin hydrated. Sunscreens with irritating scents and colorants should be avoided because they can irritate the skin.
