How to Combat Dry Skin Under Your Eyes

eye careUnfortunately, we are in the thick of winter, and although spring is just around the corner, you still have to bundle up for at least another month or two. As one of the worst parts about winter, the skin on your face and body can dry out and start to itch. Specifically, the skin around your eyes. Luckily, with these few tips from Dr. Daniel Tresley, you can restore the moisture back to the skin around your eyes and help combat wrinkles while doing so. Read on to learn more.


You may have thought that the cucumbers your facialist places on your eyes are for a snack, but those cucumbers are doing wonders for the skin under and around your eyes. Containing both ascorbic and caffeic acid, cucumbers help to bring in moisture to these dry areas— leaving you feeling more restored than ever.

Eye Serum

An eye serum is a lightweight gel-like lotion that is designed specifically for the skin under your eyes. Because the skin around your eyes is particularly delicate and sensitive, eye serums are created with those concerns in mind. Use an eye serum both morning and night to help lock in the moisture, get rid of circles under your eyes, and combat fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, some people say that if you put on a serum over your eyeshadow, it will help give you a natural looking glow.

Drink More Water

One of the easiest and most natural ways of helping deal with dry skin around your eyes is to drink more water throughout the day. The more hydrated your body is, the more hydrated your skin will be— meaning that you can get rid of that chapped skin feeling.

Restoring the moisture to the skin around and under your eyes is relatively simple. By using cucumbers, an eye serum, and drinking more water, you can combat the curse of winter once and for all. To learn more about how you can take better care of your eyes, contact Dr. Daniel Tresley today!
