What is the best cream for dry eyelids?
We recommend applying Vaseline® Jelly on eyelids because some regular moisturizers and creams are not always safe to use on the eye area. The skin around the eyes is much more sensitive to irritants, so it’s best to use a hypoallergenic product that contains pure ingredients.
Should you moisturize your eyelids?
The answer is yes. As long as it doesn’t irritate your eyes and provides a sufficient amount of moisture, you’re good. Keep in mind, however, that since the skin is thin around your eyes, it can be sensitive to regular face cream.
What can I put on dry eyelids?
If you have blepharitis, warm compresses and gentle eyelid scrubs can ease symptoms. Your doctor might also suggest eyedrops or antibiotics for infection or inflammation. Lifestyle changes can help soothe your eyelids, too.
How do you treat dry skin around eyes?
Switch to a mild, soap-free facial cleanser, and use gentle strokes and lukewarm water instead of hot. Find a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer and apply it after patting the skin dry. Lightly dab onto the sensitive eye area. If you use concealer, look for brands that are hypoallergenic and ophthalmologist recommended.
