In brief: Dry skin

Dryness under your eyes is usually just that, dry skin.
It can also be related to an allergy or even eczema. You can try some simple over the counter facial lotion and see if that helps. If it does not you should see your dr. Who can prescribe you something, usually a mild steroid ointment/cream.

In brief: Skin issues

Skin disease such as psoriasis and eczema can also occur around the eyelids in addition to dry skin.
If your symptoms don't resolve with hydration of the skin, you should see your ophthalmologist who can give you topical medications for these issues.
