Got dry skin under the eyes? Here’s how to treat it
Dry skin under the eyes can result in increased visibility of lines and creases and make skin appear ashy or flakey. The under-eye area is very thin and will absorb products easily. It’s also different from the surrounding facial skin in other ways, so you want to make sure that you’re using a product specifically designed for this area.
How to apply
Yes, even the way you apply the cream matters! There shouldn't be any rubbing or tugging involved when applying any product to the delicate under eye area. Using your pinky (it will help you apply the cream very gently), dip your finger in the cream and dab 2-3 times onto the undereye area. Then gently dab your finger using small sideways motions to blend it into the skin. Never pull the skin as you’re applying any product, as this can easily stretch out your under-eye skin and lead to sagging, bags, and wrinkles with time.
How to prevent dry skin under the eyes
Of course, the best solution for dry skin is to prevent it from happening in the first place. So once your dry skin is under control, follow these tips.
-Moisturize day and night: Use your under-eye moisturizer during your skincare routine both morning and at night.
-Avoid harsh soaps and cleansers: While washing up each morning and before bed every night, opt for a cleanser that is gentle on the face (added plus: use one that is geared towards those who have dry skin) and certainly never use harsh hand soaps or cleansers not meant for the face.
-Humidify: especially if dry skin is an overall problem for you, using a humidifier in the house can help counterbalance at least some of the effects of dry heated air in your home. This will benefit your skin and help with any sinus issues (often a problem in cold and flu season) and will just generally help the overall environment in your house.
