Skin issues become more bothersome when they appear on your face. Whether it is a pimple or a seasonal attack of acne, you can easily lose your sleep over facial skin issues. Eyelid skin issues are more worrying because of the sensitivity of the skin condition.
It’s not just the scales and dryness that define annoying eyelid skin issues; you may find yourself dealing with a number of other problems, too. The following are some of the most common eyelid issues.
Eyelid eczema is arguably the most common eyelid skin condition; it typically results in dry and itchy skin rashes that may swell or become flaky. Eyelid eczema can be triggered by a myriad of factors like allergens, extreme weather conditions, immune dysfunction, stress, reaction to food, and hereditary components. For some people this can be a persistent condition but for others the eczema might show up occasionally.
Medical treatments for eyelid eczema include the use of cortisone creams and steroids, but there are many natural alternatives to reduce eczema symptoms. One possible course of treatment is to boost immunity with supplements containing Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
Intake of B Vitamins can also help in maintaining healthy and supple skin and Vitamin E is a natural skin moisturizer. Allergies and inflammations can also be treated with probiotics (good bacteria). Natural topical treatments include chamomile, witch hazel, licorice, and gamma linolenic acid creams.
Skin tags are soft, harmless skin growths that often appear on the eyelid area. These colorless skin growths do not cause any pain or discomfort. However, they have an unpleasant appearance and people with more than one eyelid skin tag often complain of uneasiness.
There are many remedies you can try at home to cure skin tags include freezing them, tying and pulling off with a string or dental floss thread, or cutting them off, but these measures cause pain and scarring. Also, such treatments aren’t easy to perform on eyelids due to their sensitivity and closeness to the eyes.
However, skin tag removers reduce the risk of damaging the eyelids or the eye. Such solutions can be applied directly to the affected area on the eyelids with the eyes closed. A natural, topical remover for skin tags derived from homeopathic ingredients will directly absorb into the skin tag and work to gently flake them away.
Freckles are extremely common in growing children, but adults are equally susceptible to the condition. Freckles, also called ephilis in medical terms, can appear on eyelids and the pigmentation causes the eyes to appear unattractive. Although they do not pose any harm or discomfort, freckles need to be removed for their unsightly appearance.
The most common way to avoid freckles is to stay away from the sun (especially during summer days), but this is not feasible for those who love to bask in sunlight. Other remedies from Mother Nature include washing the face with sour milk, applying sake (also known as rice wine or kojic acid), buttermilk, lemon, or licorice root extracts. Vegetables like horseradish and eggplant can also help to remove these flat brown spots from your eyelids.
Finding pigmentation, dryness, and lesions on the eyelid is common and using our remedies is the safest option. However, if the condition seems to aggravate it is recommended to see a specialist because the eyelid area is susceptible to serious skin cancer conditions.
