Are You Embarrassed By Under Eye Wrinkles? Here's What To Do...

There are plenty of reasons to love getting older; unfortunately, your skin isn’t one of those reasons. No one enjoys it when those dreaded crinkles and wrinkles begin to develop around your eyes.

Your eyes are the gateway to your soul, and they’re one of the first things that people notice about you, so fine lines must go! Not only do wrinkles around your eyes make your makeup routine more difficult, but they also age you considerably. But there is good news! Just because you have eye wrinkles, doesn’t mean you have to live with them forever. Once you know what causes those problematic wrinkles, you can learn how to prevent them and what skin care treatments are available to reduce their appearance.

The Cause of Under Eye Wrinkles

The skin around your eyes is very delicate, meaning that it’s particularly susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines. This wouldn’t be so bad if under eye wrinkles weren’t so noticeable. Let's face it - People naturally look at your eyes, so when they see these fine lines, wrinkles, and darker circles it may cause them to say that you look tired, worn out, or even sick. Others come right out with it and say; "You look old"... Those are the ones we have patience with. What makes under eye wrinkles worse is that this area of your skin does not have oil-producing glands, so it’s more susceptible to issues. Plus, the skin under your eyes is thinner, so it will often look darker than the rest of your face, exacerbating the problem. So, what causes all these unwanted wrinkles, blemishes, and fine lines? There are many reasons for this:
  • Loss of hydration, which causes your skin to shrivel
  • Repetitive facial motions such as squinting
  • Natural age deterioration
  • Environmental factors
  • And more.
The truth is that, just like other wrinkles, eye wrinkles can be attributed to a multitude of factors including genetic aging, hormonal aging, and environmental aging. Both genetic and hormonal aging are part of the natural aging process. As you get older, there’s a natural reduction in the estrogen your body produces, which can, in turn, affect collagen production and elastin strength in the skin. Collagen is what gives your skin its firmness and suppleness, and unfortunately, as you age, it declines, and your skin begins to sag and develops wrinkles and fine lines. Elastin is the substance that causes your skin to “bounce” back into place after furrowing your brow or squinting your eyes. As it decreases, those same repetitive facial movements you’ve made since you were child start to cause permanent lines. Unfortunately, while you can’t change your genetics, how old you are, or how you move your face, aging isn’t the only thing that causes wrinkles under the eyes. Sun damage, squinting, smiling, smoking, acne, injuries, and more can all cause fine lines to appear around your eyes. In fact, you might notice that one eye is worse than the other because you tend to smile brighter on that side of your face or you sleep—pressing the side of your face against the pillow—more often on that side.

Preventing Under Eye Wrinkles

You can’t stop aging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t prevent some of the effects by drastically diminishing new wrinkles from forming around your eyes. Now that you know what causes wrinkles, there are a few preventative steps you can take to help diminish and delay the appearance of them. Wear Sunglasses: You already know the sun is bad for your skin, but you might not have realized that squinting in the sunlight is just as damaging. Even a simple walk to and from your car can add up to thousands of minutes spent squinting, a guarantee for creating fine lines. If you want to prevent crow’s feet and other eye wrinkles, invest in a pair of polarized sunglasses that contain UV protection. Use Sunscreen: Keeping the skin under your eyes hydrated and protected from damage is one of the best ways to prevent wrinkles. You can do this by using a protective SPF face cream that hydrates your skin while guarding against sun damage. Sleep Smart: Sleeping at least eight hours each night is key to keeping bags and wrinkles away from your eyes, but it’s also about how you sleep. To help your skin stay hydrated, sleep with a humidifier in your bedroom, and train yourself to sleep on your back or side to prevent unnecessary creasing on your face from your pillow. Don’t Rub: Many of us have the habit of rubbing our eyes, especially when we’re tired, but this is a “no-no.” Rubbing the delicate skin under your eyes can cause new fine lines, and that’s even the case when you remove your makeup too roughly. Eat Healthier: Of course, there are even more important reasons why we need to eat healthily but it also helps tremendously with the appearance of our skin. You can reduce the appearance of under eye wrinkles by eating healthier. Eating foods rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin E, and Omega-3 fatty acids will keep you looking younger.
