    Default Dry skin around eyes

    What can I do stop the skin around my eyes, underneath and the eye-lid too, from being really dry? Nothings wrong with my actual eye, just the skin around it.

    Any good eye cream will help. Best take an Omega 3 capsule daily. Starts from inside out. Try mixing a small amount of moisturizer with foundation around eyes during day.

    Vaseline. Every night. Omega 3, like McJag says, and plenty of water.

    I dont wear make up very often, but I just tried Vaseline. It didnt sting like the moisturiser did, Thanks Sasha. And Yeah, I'll drink more water...lately I've been drinking a lil bit to much of the pepsi max

    When I'm at the store next I'll look for omega 3. Cheers

    The Omega 3's have worked well with me.

    I also use "Perfect Protect" Super Anti-Oxidant Eye Gel with pycnogenol. Problem is though, that I only bought 2 small bottles of it at a Marshall's, and now I can't find anymore!! It works wonders on my 45 year old eye area. You don't have to be my age though to start using something, early protection is the best thing.

    It's possible that you're having a reaction to some chemical/s in your cosmetics, moisturizer or cleanser. You may want to give your skin a breather from your normal product routine for a bit and see what happens. Vitamin E and Omega 3s as already suggested will help. I find unrefined, organic shea butter to be highly effective as well.

    The skin around my eyes is REALLY dry too, which is causing wrinkles, like overnight! All the eye creams sting, even organic eye moisturizers. I guess I'll get on the omega 3s and vaseline. I was thinking of that the other day. Everything else hurts and seems to be making it worse.

    I don't have any vaseline tonight, what should I do? It actually hurts.

    Break open a Vitamin A capsule and rub it on your skin. Works wonders.

    You could try. It probably wouldn't hurt. Just use a small amount.

    Vit A is in a lot of skin care and eye creams, which is why I suggested it.

    ^^Won't it temporarily relieve the dryness until she can get some decent stuff?

    I've been using vaseline and taking the Omega 3s (orally) but I keep forgetting to pick up Vitamin E. The skin feels much better, and I realized, after reading Rica's post, it was from too many tears as well.

    I wonder if I can start using my eye creams again, because before they were buring the skin (all different brands, even some that were "all natural organic")
