Dry under eye skin can cause an increased amount of wrinkles and discomfort throughout the day. While several commercial eye moisturizers are available, the chemicals in these products often cause skin irritation. Rather than suffering from dry, irritated skin, you can make natural moisturizers to hydrate your under eye area. As an added bonus, you will save money making natural moisturizers in comparison to commercial products. Approximately 30 minutes a day are required to keep under eye skin naturally moisturized.
