Some of you may already know this tip but, I have to share it with the rest of you because it truly changed my life – and I am not exaggerating!
First, I’ll go back to where it all started. Winter came and I started getting dry skin (which I’m used to in the winter months) but, I noticed that the corners of my eyes were getting extremely dry, weird. Then, after Christmas, the skin under one my eyes seemed to have a cut on it, my eyes were itchy, they were swelling in the morning – ew, hot mess! I was about to call the dermatologist when I figured I’d ask the lady who does my eyebrows since she’s an Esthetician and I was going to get my eyebrows waxed. Long story short (or shorter…) she said I had severe dry skin under my eyes. Because that part of the face doesn’t produce natural oils it takes longer to heal.
So – how do we fix this without completely breaking the bank? She gave me one simple answer – vaseline! Put on a very light layer before bed each night and it will heal. She ever said to do it whether or not your skin is super dry or not. So, I’ve added it to my nightly beauty routine. It’s a little odd looking but, hey! it completely beats red, dry skin under the eyes!
