Very thin and dry skin around eyes (20 yr old)

Hi! 

I`ve always had a dark circle and under eye bags problem, since I was born, because of VERY thin skin around eyes. However until now it wasn`t much of a problem (I could always conceal it really well). Since I turned 19 (I`m now 20), my skin turned very dry and I have wrinkles! Concealer makes it look even worse, because it reveals dryness. It really upsets me, because it makes me look 30+, and I`m not exaggerating. I try to moisturize a lot, but it doesn`t help. Should I start using anti-age creams? Is there any way to make my skin thicker? I feel like 20 years old is too young for that... Ugh. HELP!! :(
By the way, I exercise a lot, eat healthy and drink 2-3 liters of water a day. I also sleep enough.

Sorry to hear that, Hon. I suggest trying a rich face cream instead of a lotion. Possibly one with emu oil - an light oil that penetrates the skin instead of just trapping moisture. Or one with hyaluronic acid - a natural substance that holds many times its weight in water. It has a role in lubricating joints, use in plastic surgeries and as a moisturizer to heal wounds. The only thing I can think of that might cause thicker skin is skin-grafting by a surgeon. Or possibly controlled skin-damage, sort of like this: http://www.totalbeauty.com/content/blog/stick-needles-face-meant-better-skin Obviously by professionals.

I use Triple Action Vitamin C Serum by VoilaVe from Amazon. I have just started using this few months back, I have a dry skin with with wrinkles and dark circles round my eyes. After using this , I realize that my skin hydration is restored and my cheeks are rosy. Even my colleagues noticed and asked what have I done! I'm very satisfied with this product that I am going to share it with you. Try it too. :)
