About a month ago I developed dry flaky skin on my eyelids. It was so bad that even something as gentle as Aloe Gel made the infected area burn. I stopped using any makeup products on my eyelids as I thought that it was something cosmetic affecting it. After consulting Doctor Google I was pretty sure it was something that can’t be cured. Thinking it is eczema (something I don’t suffer with) I used Vaseline and Aquaphor from Eucerin (Review coming up soon) to soothe the area. This offered temporary relief.
My mum was watching a health talk on t.v and she heard an optometrist giving advice on how to combat dryness around the eye area. The go to product was BABY SHAMPOO!
Empty the solution into a bottle. It should last about a week if you use twice a day. Apply the solution with a cotton pad. I have been using it for about three weeks twice a day. After the first use you can actually feel a difference, my eyelids were considerably softer. The one eye has been cured, there’s a little dryness on the one which is fading. So I haven’t been cured completely but I opted to not visit a dermatologist who would probably resort to cortisone based creams.
Even if you don’t have dryness around the eye area but you wear eye makeup often I suggest you use this method at least once a day after removing the makeup. It can probably help to curb any future problems.
It also works well as a makeup brush and sponge cleaner. I have a few beauty blenders and purchasing the cleaners are not cost effective. I used the baby shampoo as a cleanser and the makeup practically melted of the sponge.
Luckily at about R23 for 125ml will not break the bank!
Try it out and let me know…
