We can all agree that dry skin is no fun to deal with, but dry skin around your eyes can take the discomfort to a whole new level. Not a fan? Sounds like a sign to start addressing this skin care concern and giving the dry skin around and under your eyes the TLC that it needs. Your skin care routine may need a slight revamp, at least when it comes to how you care for your under-eye area, but it’s worth it. Keep reading to find out what causes dry skin around the eyes in the first place and get all our best tips and skin care product recommendations for replenishing the skin surrounding your eyes with hydration.
According to the Mayo Clinic, as you get older, your skin decreases its production of natural oils, which dries out your skin. The skin around your eyes is naturally thinner than the rest of your skin and, in turn, it’s more prone to visible signs of aging like dryness, dark circles, and fine lines and wrinkles. So, that explains why the skin around and under your eyes is thirsty for moisture.
Other causes of dry skin around the eyes include not properly moisturizing your skin, not removing makeup properly, weather conditions, allergies, excessive use of hot water, and, of course, your genetics.
Like it or not, you can’t change your genetics or stop aging in its tracks. That means you may end up with dry skin under your eyes, whether you like it or not. However, if you can understand the common causes of dryness, you can take the necessary steps to manage it. Below, we’re sharing a few tips to help nourish and care for your eye area.
There is a reason why your doctor recommends that you drink eight to ten glasses of water a day. Per the Cleveland Clinic, getting enough fluid in your diet helps to hydrate your body and your skin. So, drink up!
As we mentioned above, the skin around your eyes is more delicate than the rest of your skin, so it’s more prone to showing signs of aging. However, by adding an eye cream to your skin care routine, you can address your eye concerns, including dry skin. For dry skin around the eyes, we recommend the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel. Formulated with manuka honey, this cooling eye gel provides nourishing moisture to mature, very dry skin for a refreshed feel with reduced dryness.
Washing your face twice a day with a gentle facial cleanser is recommended to remove dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin. Per the Mayo Clinic, strong cleansers can strip your skin of its natural oils and lead to dryness. So, your best bet is to use a gentle facial cleanser to keep your skin moisturized. We love the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types, which gently clears the skin of dirt and impurities all in one step, leaving your skin feeling hydrated and purified. Most importantly, it’s totally safe to use on your eyes—it even takes off waterproof mascara.
One of the easiest ways to boost your skin with moisture is to use a humidifier. Set one up near your bed to help hydrate your skin while you sleep. This can be especially helpful during the chilly months when the cold outdoor air and artificial indoor heat can both dry out your skin.
As much as a hot bath feels amazing on your skin after a long day, it can leave your skin feeling extra dry and tight. Instead of using hot water to wash your face or bathe, use lukewarm water. The American Academy of Dermatology shares that lukewarm water creates the perfect environment to cleanse your skin and keep your skin looking healthy.
No matter what your skin type is, moisturizing your skin helps to maintain your skin’s health and overall appearance. It also helps to prevent premature signs of aging from becoming more prominent. One of the best ways to get the most out of your moisturizer is to apply it to your skin right after cleansing. When your skin is damp, your moisturizer locks in more moisture!
Like we mentioned earlier, you won’t be able to stop aging. However, once you realize that your skin is maturing, staying a couple of steps ahead of the game can help you better manage and prevent the effects of aging, including dryness under your eyes. Try the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect skin care line to take your anti-aging routine to new heights.
Now that you know how to manage dry skin around and under your eyes, it may be time to consider if this skin care concern is impacting more than just your eye area. If that’s the case, consider following our Best Skin Care Routine for Dry Skin.
