Under-eye fine lines are often the first visible sign of aging. This is because as your skin ages, elasticity and moisture are lost.
The skin around your eyes is also thin, delicate, and fragile. Which means your eye-area is where wrinkles and deep, etched lines show up first.
I see lots of patients who feel embarrassed about how old they think under eye lines make them look.
So in this article, I share three tips for fending off the appearance of under-eye fine lines…
So you can keep your eyes looking young, sparkly, and radiant instead:
The key to protecting your skin from environmental damage is simple: Wear sunscreen (SPF 30) daily and avoid direct sun exposure.
These tactics are the best way to stop dangerous UV radiation from entering your skin and breaking down your skin’s collagen stores.
Generally, SPF ratings indicate how long you can stay in the sun without burning. For example, if you normally burn after 10 minutes in the sun, SPF 15 would protect you from burning for up to 150 minutes (10 times longer).
The higher the SPF rating, the better protection against UV rays you’ll enjoy. We recommend choosing a higher SPF to be safe!
If you like natural remedies, facial massages are one of the best natural, anti-aging skincare options out there. The blood flow they stimulate leads to greater collagen and elastin production—which can result in a youthful, all-over facial glow.
The correct technique for facial massage is upward, like you’re giving your skin a lift. Your touch should be light, and your skin lightly oiled so you don’t tug and pull on your delicate facial skin.
You should apply eye cream both morning and night to keep your skin hydrated and protected.
Eye creams are designed to be gentle and light on the delicate skin around the eyes. Don’t forget! Investing in a high-quality product is important.
So look for a cream containing ingredients such as retinol, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin C. These ingredients work together to help increase collagen production while hydrating your skin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
No matter which method you use to keep your eyes looking stunning, consistency is key for lasting results. Make sure to stick to your routine and keep in mind that visible signs of aging take time to fade.
And remember: With the right combination of skincare, protection from environmental factors, and facial exercises, you can fade the appearance of fine lines under your eyes and deduct 15 years from your visual age.
