Cold, Winter Air Means Thick, Nourishing Eye Cream At Night

We have OILY skin, and even for us....that all changes quickly when snow, ice + bitter wind chills begin to appear. We live in the northeast by the way. Lows tonight expected around 10 degrees.

Lately our skin care routine has hovered around 4 simple steps:

1. Cleansing AM--Glycolic Acid soap bar
2. Daytime treatment--Vitamin C serum
3. Cleansing PM--Ivory soap
4. Nighttime treatment--Retin-A (prescription) 

Now that beauty routine looks tame enough, but since winter has arrived, we have noticed dry, scratchy, irritated eyes. The most likely culprits---too much retin-A and then too much Vit. C.

Even though these potent treatments are used at opposite times of the day, minor side effects can occur. Also---the harsh elements are causing the skin discomfort. Tight, red, itchy skin are COMMON during these weather conditions

So----a nice, thick hyaluronic eye cream at nighttime can CALM things down. But we will NOT use Retin-A around eyes when using hyaluronic acid.


One suggestion we have that is effective + fairly inexpensive

Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream ($18, at ULTA).

How does this stuff work?

"Hyaluronic Acid formula helps lock in the skin's own natural moisture without the use of heavy, greasy oils. Absorbent, medium weight cream for use day or night. Aloe based formula makes this cream suitable for all skin types, even sensitive."

So when applying an eye cream, remember NOT to go too close to the lashes, but do put some on the eyelid, too. And go around the orbital bone as diagrammed here.


Winter has ONLY just begun for us. Hang in there.
