Dealing With Sensitive Eyelids? Soothe Them With These 10 Eye Creams

Bye redness, bye flakes

Do you find yourself asking why you need separate skincare products for your eyes than the rest of your face? It’s because the skin around your eyes is a lot thinner and it absorbs products better and quicker. So, overapplying products that are thick or too strong may lead to irritation and allergic reactions, especially if you have sensitive skin. These often manifest as itchy eyelids and overly dry and flaky skin around the eye area.

How do you deal with sensitive eyelids?


Aside from topical treatments, one way to ease constant irritation around the eyes is by moisturising. Keeping the area hydrated helps relieve the dryness, redness, and itchiness. And yes, it is advised to use eye creams for sensitive skin instead of your usual moisturisers.

Ready to prevent or get rid of your itchiness and irritation around your sensitive eyelids? Let these 10 soothing eye creams you can easily get in Singapore help you out.
