fight dry winter skin with eye gels

Packed with powerful hydrators like hyaluronic acid and ceramides, as well as antioxidant-rich botanicals, our top eye treatments will replenish depleted moisture levels while shielding against environmental stressors. Say goodbye to dryness, puffiness, and dark circles this season!

Five Tips To Fix Winter Dryness

Here are 5 ways to hydrate under eyes in the winter:

  1. Use a humidifier Dry indoor heat can seriously dehydrate the delicate under-eye area. Running a humidifier, especially in your bedroom overnight, will add moisture back into the air and help prevent that parched look come morning.
  2. Avoid drying ingredients Stay away from products containing alcohol, fragrances, and sulfates as these can strip the eye area of its natural oils. Choose gentle, hydrating eye creams without these drying ingredients.
  3. Apply an eye mask Gel eye masks or patches create an occlusive layer to lock in moisture. Look for ones with hyaluronic acid, ceramides, or glycerin to intensely hydrate.
  4. Gently exfoliate Sloughing off dead skin cells allows hydrating ingredients to better penetrate. Use a soft washcloth and milky eye makeup remover to lightly exfoliate like Exfoliate Mate face mask once or twice a week.
  5. Hydrate from the inside out The under-eye area is one of the first places dehydration shows up, so be sure to drink plenty of water daily. 

Following tips like using a humidifier, avoiding drying products, trying eye masks, gently exfoliating, and hydrating from within will help keep under-eyes supple and smooth this winter.

Why does your skin change in the winter?

Here are 3 ways your skin changes in the winter:

1. Dryness - Low humidity indoor air combined with cold, dry outdoor air can pull moisture from your skin, making it feel tight and itchy. This is especially common on the hands, lips, and face.
2. Redness - The cold air and low humidity outdoors can make the small blood vessels under your skin constrict. When you return indoors, they rapidly dilate, causing flushed skin that looks red and inflamed. 
3. Dullness - Lack of moisture in your skin can cause it to look drier, flakier, and just generally more dull during the winter. Dry winter air depletes the lipids and natural moisturizing factors in skin that give it a plump, glowing look.


Some other winter skin changes include increased sensitivity and reactivity, slower cell turnover leading to buildup of dead skin cells, and worsening of certain skin conditions like eczema and rosacea.

Taking shorter showers, using gentle cleansers, applying moisturizer daily, and boosting antioxidant intake can help combat these seasonal skin changes.
