Hi Orange!

Found this article that might explain your "chicken skin". Text below:

Q. I often get small, hard white bumps around my eyes, but they are somehow unpoppable. What are these and do I need to be concerned?

A. They are likely something called milia—little calcifications that look like whiteheads but have gotten hard. You cannot squeeze these so typically they need to be lanced by a professional. This condition frequently occurs from using too heavy an eye cream or sunscreen around that area, where it’s easier for these things to surface because the skin is very thin. However, it could also be syringoma, a condition in which enlarged glands grow under the skin. These are treated with a number of different removal methods, from acid to lasers.
