What can you Really do About the Wrinkles Around Your Eyes?

Everyone gets wrinkles as they age, and while you can’t hold them off forever, there are some ways to deal with the most conspicuous signs of aging skin. Our eyes are an area where wrinkles naturally congregate, for example, so plenty of us look for strategies to minimize the appearance of the fine lines that form here. The question, then, is which of these actually work?

1. Makeup makes a difference

Using anti aging eye makeup will not only cover wrinkles, but also provide your skin with the protection it needs to stay looking younger for longer.

Most importantly, you need to realize that one of the main causes of the aging process that our skin undergoes is sunlight.

As such, choosing cosmetic products that have an SPF rating, which indicates that they block out the UV light which not only catalyzes wrinkles, but also increases our risks of cancer, is sensible for several reasons.

2. Moisturizing is essential

A high quality eye makeup is all well and good, but you also need to be aware of the moisture levels in your skin. The drier it gets, the more obvious any wrinkles around your eyes will become.

Conversely, if you moisturize your face as part of your morning routine, as well as before bed, it will retain more of its youthful looks. The moisture makes it plumper, which in turn lessens the appearance of wrinkles in all their forms.

Carrying a small tube or pot of moisturizer with you, so that it can be applied topically during the day if you detect dryness around your eyes, is also wise.

Just be aware that the skin in this area is very sensitive, and so you need to be careful with the application of any cosmetic products. If your skin reacts negatively to your moisturizer, scale back the amount you are using, or switch to a different product altogether.

3. Sleeping well can help

Being over-tired can accentuate and exaggerate the wrinkles around our eyes, and even relatively young people can look many years older if they are not getting enough sleep.

Taking steps to improve your sleep quality, and to get more rest while reducing the amount of stress we are exposed to in our day to day lives, can give you a means of making the wrinkles you do have less obvious.

4. Smoking and sun exposure accelerate wrinkles

We already discussed that having eye makeup with an SPF rating attached is worthwhile, but it’s also better to make changes to your lifestyle so that you don’t spend as much time in the sun in the first place, if wrinkles are a concern.

Furthermore you’ll find that smokers also have more aged skin around their faces and elsewhere, so drop this habit if you have it and your skin should look less haggard in a few weeks.

5. A good diet will work wonders

Eating healthily is an all-round way to work on lots of health and aging issues that you might be facing. Sticking to a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and avoiding unhealthy fast foods and convenience-based meals will set you on the path to looking and feeling younger.

Don’t let wrinkles get to you

The final point to make is that eye wrinkles are unavoidable, and in a sense they are evidence of a life well lived, as you also tend to get them more if you are often smiling and laughing. So as well as trying some of these techniques, don’t be afraid to wear your wrinkles with pride.
