I have dry eyelids. Help!


i started having dry eyelids after taking diet pills. But i dont want to stop using it since it is very effective. I want a cure for my dry eyelids though without giving up my diet pills.
Any suggestions? I want a homemade moisturiser of some sorts.

I have dry eyelids as well due to my Eczema. I use Aveeno for Baby Eczema formula and found it works amazing on my eyelids. I just put a tiny dab on it and they dryness and itchyness is gone. I bought mine in the states as the ingredients are different and another friend had recommended it.

Oh. Ok i will try Aveeno as well. Im not sure if this is Eczema or somethin. n fact its quite making me feel uncomfortable already. And its flaky and im feeling a burning sensation everytime i put face mist on it. So im also not sure if putting face mist is a good idea. Im currently using Evian Face mist then i will slather on sunflower oil. Its now the 5th day, and it looks like its still not healing. I will try to look for Aveeno. Thanks a lot.

See a doctor if it persists

You may want to see a Dr if it persists. It may be the mist or a makeup that you're using that may have caused this to your skin. That's what I thought at first until I saw my Dr and found out it was Eczema. I use the cream on my eyelids now and it helps alot! Also, with the pills your diet has changed. I found that my Eczema flared up more when I consumed dairy and gluten. So I have now moved to a fairly gluten and dairy free diet.

You can also try Aloe Vera that may be really healing and soothing...But make sure its very natural Aloe its better yet if you have a Aloe plant!Also as Alize mentioned talk to your doctor about what is happening he may have a suggestion or a alternative pill.Good luck :)

I second the aloe plant recommendation!
Aloe plants are a great investment anyways.
They are good for so many skin issues! :)
And easy to care for! :)

Thanks for all the tips. Ill make a mental note of those things.
Someone also said CAstor oil is good for the skin? im not so sure if its really true but i will make sure to go see a dermatologist first i guess. But thank you all guys for the tips and feedbacks. I greatly appreciate it.
