If eyes are the window to the soul, we hope to keep them at their merriest and brightest. Of course, even our peepers can be all too-telling and give away dirty little secrets like irregular sleep cycles, bad bedtime habits, allergies, and especially not using an under-eye cream.

When you spy with your little eye fine lines and dry skin under your precious peepers, it’s time to add a natural, nourishing eye cream to your beauty arsenal. Keep reading to learn how to quickly banish dry under eyes and the best moisturizing eye creams for youthful, sparkling eyes.


Why Are My Under Eyes So Dried Out?

Dehydration and general signs of skin degradation such as fine lines and wrinkles under eyes can happen to anyone – virtually no one is immune! Sometimes these are age-related issues, while others can stem from Mother Nature’s moisture-sapping cold months that put our precious skin more at risk for dryness.

Before we talk about how to get rid of dry, dehydrated under eyes, let’s talk about a few of the things that cause them.

AGING
Aging has its eyes and lows, especially when it comes to the natural degradation of our skin. Since the under-eye skin is thinner and more fragile, our “years young” can play a huge role in affecting the appearance of the eyes. Over time, the muscles and fatty tissue that support our eye area grows weaker, resulting in a loss of firmness and elasticity. Parched under-eye areas can exasperate the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

ALLERGIES
In the same category of causes that are out of our control, allergies can also be a trigger of dry under eyes. Itching or rubbing the delicate eye area affects elasticity, which can lead to premature lines and wrinkles (no, thank you!).

(BAD) HABITS
Okay, this cause of dry under eyes is on you. For those of us who stay up late and/or get up early, that lack of sleep isn’t a friend to perky looking eyes. Those romantic tearjerkers aren’t helping either, as this invites dryness and rubbing the delicate under-eye tissue. What’s worse is that smoking, alcohol, fried and salty foods, or a generally imbalanced diet can all contribute to skin woes in the under-eye area.

LACK OF AN EYE CREAM
The skin around your eyes is constantly shifting as you blink, causing it to lose water faster. Collagen, which keeps our skin looking and feeling young and plump, is something that can often be in short supply as we get older and we lose our ability to retain water in our skin cells. If you’re not regularly hydrating and nourishing the under-eye area, dryness, wrinkles, and sagging can set in, resulting in dry, unhappy eyes.

These causes of dry under eyes can occur at random or with regularity depending on our habits, lifestyle, and most important, skin care. Fortunately, while all these issues seem hard to combat, you can breathe an eye of relief that we have some simple, easy ways to take to make sure the skin around your eyes stays hydrated, plump, and healthy.

How Do I Get Rid of Dry Skin Around My Eyes?

Our skin isn’t all the same. Different areas of our face have different needs, and in terms of neediness, let’s just say the eyes are the crybaby of the family. Dry, dehydrated peepers and fine lines are all a cry for help. They need a little more maintenance than others to stay tight and smooth.

Let’s quickly delve into a few quick and easy ways to help give your eyes a glow up.



DRINK MORE WATER
More than half of our body is made up of water. It’s so critical to our health and its daily functioning for everything from regulating body temperature to moistening tissues and skin that it’s safe to call good ol’ H2O the essence of life.

Keeping the body hydrated with adequate water intake is important. Whether it's the skin around your eyes or any part of the body, hydrating from the inside may be just as important—if not more—as moisturizing the surface with creams and serums.

DON’T USE HARSH EYE CREAMS
Don’t even be tempted to use conventional eye creams that claim to deliver your under-eye area the mystical fountain of youth results. When it comes to protecting the skin around the eyes, staying proactive by avoiding known harsh, skin-driers on a regular basis, to the best of your ability, may save you from dealing with dry under eyes – and skin – in general.

USE A HUMIDIFIER
Humidifiers not only help with congestion and other cold symptoms, they may also be a great way to treat dry under eyes easily and effectively. Since the skin around the eyes is thinner, it’s more susceptible to external conditions like cold, dry temps, which can lead to dry skin. Adding a humidifier may add much needed moisture to the delicate eye area and your skin while you rest.

USE THE RIGHT PRODUCTS
Invest in a natural eye cream that’s null and void of harsh ingredients and chemicals. And remember, the formula isn’t the only thing to consider—active ingredients can help deliver the results you want. Be on the lookout for products containing skin-plumping ingredients like hyaluronic acid, moisturizing glycerin, and antioxidant powerhouses like peptides, which can hydrate the under-eye area to minimize the appearance of fine lines and dehydration.

INVEST IN YOUR UNDER-EYE AREA
The skin is our largest organ, and it needs care and attention to function at its highest potential. Keeping healthy habits will go a long way toward great skin, but also taking the time and care to invest in your skin with natural, effective products designed for the skin around the eyes may show even more improvements. We’re here to help you with that!

How Do You Hydrate Under Your Eyes?

Over time, with age or environmental factors, or from natural occurrences like improper skin care routines, our eyes can feel dry and look tired. As we have learned, the eyes have thinner skin than our nose, or our forehead for example, and this thinness can also result in weakness. That’s why you need an eye cream that’s formulated to absorb quickly and deliver eye-catching results

To maintain that youthful quality about our peepers, we use nourishing, natural ingredients to seal the surface of the fragile under-eye area and lock in nutrients that help with dryness, wrinkles, sagging and loss of collagen.

Here are the best products to quickly treat dry under eyes

Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
For serious under eye maintenance, try this constant bestseller and 2020 award winner on for size. Easily the best product for treating dry, dehydrated eyes and puffy under eyes, this eye cream makes us feel like we have our lives together – even after a night of little sleep.

Vegan, cruelty-free, and great for any skin type, this product was thoughtfully formulated with all eyes in mind. Vitamin C gives a brightening boost, while nourishing rosehip oil reduces redness and irritation. Green coffee and green tea extract lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while fighting swelling and puffiness in the skin.

Another caffeinated component, coffee cherry, also brings smoothness to fine lines in the skin. This lightweight, restorative formula truly transforms the eye area for ageless, attention-grabbing eyes.

Super Fruit Oil Nourishing Eye Cream
We chose the most nourishing super fruit oils to help moisturize your skin. These oils have been cold pressed to retain their nutrient rich properties. Organic acai oil is rich in vitamins A, C, and E for skin strengthening; goji berry, acerola, and elderberry contain a range of potent antioxidants to protect and repair the delicate under-eye area.

The grapes contribute vitamin E but are also known to banish dark circles and restore collagen. Lightweight plum oil helps with skin elasticity, and acai oil helps to heal cracks and damage in our skin.

Since we’re passionate about wholesome ingredients and organic skin care, the natural and organic ingredients in this eye cream speak volumes about the effectiveness and potential results.

Retinol PM Eye Cream
While physicists and Cher still search for a way to turn back time, we’re glad to settle for a potent game-changer eye cream! Enter our Retinol PM Eye Cream, a natural eye cream night treatment for lessening signs of aging around the eyes. This formula uses a vegan, pleasant source of retinol to boost collagen and renew thinning under eye skin.

Potent concentration of age correcting vitamins, stem cells, and peptides promotes collagen production, elasticity, and lessens appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid locks in hydration and plumps, while acai and pomegranate oils deeply moisturize for softer, more youthful skin around the eye area.

Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants PM Eye Treatment
Slip into your pj’s and get your sleeping mask ready. Our Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants PM Eye Treatment is a no-nonsense addition to your nighttime skin care routine. This ultra-concentrated gem with multiple vitamins and antioxidants is designed to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It promotes both collagen and elastin production for firmer, more youthful skin around the eye area.

Richly moisturizing, highly anti-aging eye treatment concentrated with multiple vitamins, from C to E, and antioxidants drastically lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles; stimulate cellular regeneration; and promote both collagen and elastin production for firmer, more youthful skin around the eye area.

The bottom line when it comes to keeping the skin around your eyes looking and feeling less dry? Don’t forget about some simple lifestyle changes and the addition of a natural, effective eye cream. Often, our under eye-areas, like our hands and neck, get overlooked. The best advice is to not neglect the eye area and be as proactive in your regular skin care since you are caring for the most delicate part of our body and window to your soul.
