Keep skin care regimens simple
The eyelid skin is extremely delicate and putting different products in this area can lead to allergic and irritant contact dermatitis, so it is important to use topicals with safe ingredients. In my opinion, less is more for a skin care regimen. I prefer a regimen that incorporates a non-irritating face wash such as Cetaphil cleanser, a sunscreen during the day, a bland moisturizer, and a topical retinoid in selected patients.
