How to Exfoliate Dry Flaky Eyelids

Dry, flaky eyelids often mean that you have a condition called blepharitis, or eyelash dandruff. You'll need to seek treatment for this condition, because it can affect your vision and the overall health of your eyes, according to the National Eye Institute. Once you've been diagnosed or if you have dry eyelid skin from another type of dermatitis, add a gentle exfoliating treatment to your daily skincare routine.

Step 1

Wet a washcloth in warm water. Apply it to your eyelids and leave it in place for five minutes, or until you loosen the crust and dry skin in your eyelashes and on your eyelids.

Step 2

Mix 1 tablespoon of baby shampoo with a cup of water.

Step 3

Dip a clean cotton ball into the solution. Dab at your eyelid and eyelashes with the cotton ball until you've removed all traces of loose flakes. Rinse the baby shampoo away with warm water.

Step 4

Follow up with a light moisturizer or with a treatment prescribed by your doctor.

Step 5

Repeat this treatment daily for consistent results.
