Ways of Fixing My Horrible Dry Eye Retinol Mistake

As a digital social media influencer ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ my face is my money maker ๐Ÿ˜ I am totally at a loss ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ so decided to blog about ways of fixing my horrible dry eye retinol mistake ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

The Back Story

Being a seasoned African American woman ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿฝ I do have minimal lines & a few crows feet ๐Ÿ•ธ
*All ๐Ÿ“ธ are UNEDITED (just cropping) & ZERO FILTERS ๐Ÿ’ฏ

๐Ÿ“… A month ago I ran out of eye cream but remembered ๐Ÿ’ก I had 1๏ธโƒฃ in my skin care stash (perks of being a makeup artist ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽจ)

๐Ÿšซ Now I am not going to “DRAG” the product here because I don’t want anyone to get the wrong impression ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ This was not the products fault; completely user error ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

Being a thicker eye cream ๐Ÿงด used just a little during the day under makeup but piled it on every night ๐Ÿ˜ด

One day when putting on my makeup ๐Ÿ’„ to film ๐ŸŽฆ, I noticed serious dryness around my orbital bone ๐Ÿ‘€ First instinct was to double up on the eye cream โž• increase my water ๐Ÿ’ฆ intake (more on that in another blog)

When the dryness got to EPIC levels I looked at the eye cream: RETINOL ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Being a model & makeup artist ๐ŸŽจ I know how to pose to get a good shot ๐Ÿ“ท However, I still need help getting my eyes back to camera ready ๐Ÿคฉ

Ways of Fixing My Horrible Dry Eye Retinol Mistake

Fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ the Mermaid Skincare & Wellness eye cream makes a difference to my thirsty eyes ๐Ÿคค

โฐ In the mean time, I started using my “go to” moisturizer. When any part of my skin gets overly dry ๐ŸŒต I reach for Aquaphor! Although it has helped a bit it’s still a long way from recovered ๐Ÿค’

๐Ÿ›‘ Also Aquaphor is too thick to be used every day ๐Ÿ›‘ The last thing I need is to get under eye acne ๐Ÿฅบ
