Under eye wrinkles are most probably the first thing that you notice when you start to worry about your age. Eye wrinkles appear out of nowhere, and steal your smooth skin,
But, as you age, the skin loses some of its elasticity. Environmental factors, that includes genetics, and sun exposure, play a role in how early fine lines and wrinkles will start to appear on a person’s face.
The skin that is around your eyes is an area that is likely to show earlier signs of aging, because the area under your eyeball, or the periorbital hollow, is thin skin with blood vessels.
Having wrinkles and lines under your eyes is a normal part of aging. If these lines make you feel self-conscious, you can try various home remedies and preventive methods.
How to Avoid Wrinkles Around Your Eyes:
1. Use Sunscreen, Hat or Sunglasses
You can help in preventing fine lines from forming by protecting your skin from UV rays. Always apply sunscreen of at least 30 when you are going outside, even if it’s not particularly sunny.
When you know that you will be in direct sunlight for hours at a time, consider protecting your eyes using sunglasses, and a hat. Visors and brimmed hats serve an added benefit for your eyes. They keep you from squinting, which is an expression that can create wrinkles when it is repeated often enough.
2. Moisturize Using an Eye Cream
Lack of moisture can add to the increase appearance of fine lines around your eyes. Get a moisturizer that is rich in ingredients shown to help in promoting circulation, and new cell growth.
Retinol, which is derivative of peptides, vitamin A, and hyaluronic acid, and are all backed by aestheticians and research.
While, under-eye products in the form of serums and cooling gels might work best to fight wrinkles and fine lines.
3. Eat a Healthy Diet
Vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E are all frequently used in skin care products. By adding foods rich in these vitamins i your diet, you will be helping your skin, and the rest of your body, to form healthy new cells.
Some researchers believe that there is a strong association between firm, younger looking skin and a healthy diet.
Consider carrots, colorful citrus fruits, and pumpkin to increase the amount of these vitamins in your diet.
4. Try Facial Exercises
Certain facial exercises have been found to be effective at reducing and tightening the skin underneath your eyes.
There’s no reason to believe that these facial exercises are harmful, but, the research about “facial yoga,” as some call it, is still very limited.
5. Use a Nighttime Eye Cream
Apply a nighttime eye cream, and use one designed to help boost collagen, like a cream that contains vitamin A retinols.
