To prevent the skin around the eyes from drying out prematurely, you must first of all lead a healthy lifestyle. Stop smoking, stay out of the sun or wear sunglasses.
Moisturize thoroughly morning and evening, but never stretch it with your fingers. Apply all creams and masks with a tapping motion.
In the morning, rub the skin around your eyes with an ice cube. You can use frozen herbal teas.
