Easiest Moisturizing Trick Ever For Eyes

I recently tried something on my eyes that I can't believe I've gone this long in my life without doing... dabbing Vaseline on top of where I've applied eye cream before bedtime. If you've ever experienced that dry, thirsty feeling around your eyes, even after you've moisturized and put on your eye cream, you must try this! Each night, just lightly pat on a bit of pure petroleum jelly right around your eyes and on your lids as the last step of your evening skincare regimen. You'll immediately notice how quenched your skin feels. Even when you wake up the next morning, your eyes will not feel at all thirsty or dry. According to Allure, adding heavy, occlusive ointments like Vaseline on top of your moisturizer is great for boosting absorption. Dermatologists say that dotting Vaseline on top of your face creams and serums can double the strength of the product's ingredients (which I think is awesome!)... so they warn against doing so if the product contains retinoids, Vitamin C, or acids since it can irritate your skin. If you struggle with acne, you should definitely avoid putting Vaseline on your face.
