Dry skin occurs when your skin loses its moisture level and gets dehydrated. Dry skin is common for all age groups, it can happen at any age and multiple reasons can cause skin dryness which eventually leads to dull and dead skin. 

The skin around the eyes is thin and sensitive which easily gets affected. Improper sleep, inadequate diet, medication, illness, not taking care properly, using wrong cosmetics, sun damage or insufficient moisturisation etc, are some of the factors that can lead to dry and dull skin around the eyes. 

The dry skin around the eyes can gradually lead to dark circles, crow's feet, wrinkles, and skin irritations. The dry skin around the eyes may feel stretchy and patchy, it can be rough, peeling, and itching.
