flakey skin around eye

Hi there - I currently have very dry and visibly flaking skin around one of my eyes. It's bizarre, the other eye is fine!

Can anyone recommend a decent eye cream to get this under control?

I'm a bit run down so intend to drink more water, eat more veg etc, but as this is happening around one eye only I probably need something extra!

Thanks smile

I had this and got Kiehl's eye cream with avocado which has sorted it out a treat fsmile

My sister gets this from time to time and treats it with coconut oil, plenty of water, and cutting down on / out dairy.

Coconut oil sounds like a cheaper option - might try that first wink

Def try it! I love coconut oil too but it brings me out in spots on the face sometimes so I used the Kiehl's instead smile Good shout if it works for you tho.

Do you use touche eclat concealer there? Quite a common allergy.

No not used anything like that, been using a bb cream for the past 3 months but flare up has only happened recently.
