Dry flaky skin around the eyelids. How do I treat it without steroids. Do I let it dry and flake or keep putting moisturizer?

In brief: Moisturizer

Moisturizer is useful.
Do not scrub your lids too often and hard with cleaners as this removes protective oils. Consider also that you might have tear overflow which causes some skin dryness in that area like chapped lips.
