Q: What is the best eye care routine?

A: Problems around the eyes are usually classified as allergies, pigmentatio, skin laxity, hollowness or bulges. Itchy eye lids are usually due to an allergy to pollen grains or fragrances or sometimes eye fatigue and are diagnosed and treated appropriately. Eye bulges require blepharoplasty surgery while hollowness (tear troughs) require filling with hyaluronic acid. The two most common problems are eye lid pigmentation and laxity which require lightening and tightening with a good skin care routine and laser treatments in severe cases. A mild face wash, hyaluronic acid based moisturizers, eye lid optimized skin lightening agent and very fine quality  retinoic acid formulations form the base of a good eye care routine. Use of a very mild make up remover is a must.
