7 Simple Ways To Avoid Wrinkles Around the Eyes

Your eyes can say a lot about you. They brighten up when you’re really happy and they look sad when you are sad. Your eyes can also make you look young when they lighten up and old when they’re dark and wrinkled.

Doing The Right Thing

When a wrinkle around an eye suddenly makes itself visible, don’t be surprised because the skin around your eyes provides the best harbor for early signs of skin aging to appear. Here’s why:

  • skin around your eyes are thinner than anywhere else on your face making these delicate spots prone to dryness and damage
  • this area either has a thin layer of fat or none at all
  • there’s very little muscle on these parts to hold up your skin for longer

To prevent eye wrinkles from showing, addressing these three inherent characteristics of skin around your eyes is a must and it takes more than a good eye cream like Teamine, to do that.

Here are 7 tips that you can follow:

Tip No. 1: Make sun protection a major part of your routine. Pick up a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or more that will be gentle enough for your skin, and use it everyday without fail. UV damage is the top cause of skin aging. While a sunscreen should be a major part of your sun care strategy, there’s more that you can do to keep the sun from touching your skin.

Keep in the shade whenever possible, opt for a darker window and car tint, wear your sunglasses to keep you from squinting, bring an umbrella when your going outdoors for a walk or put on your hat.

Tip No. 2: Load up with antioxidants. Damaged cells are the physiological causes of aging, and that’s what you want to prevent. Free radicals, which are present in the environment and produced by your body such as when you’re stressed, have an unpaired electron which will snatch a partner from your skin cell, if given the opportunity. When that happens, it will catalyze a chain of biochemical reactions that will damage or kill your skin cell.

Antioxidants can help you prevent that. They give up an electron to pair with the rogue electron of the free radical to neutralize it and not attempt to bind with an electron from your skin cell. Vitamin C, E and niacinamide are the best kinds to derive from your skincare. As for your diet, eat a variety of colored fruits and veggies to get the best variety.

Tip No. 3: Don’t stress. There are good kinds of stresses that expand the abilities of your body and mind. It is the bad stress that you don’t want, and that includes negative emotions, charged arguments, and worrying. Stress makes your body create free radicals, and that damages your skin.

Tip No. 4: Sleep.  For a full 7 to 9 hours, to be exact.  When you are chronically sleep deprived, your body creates free radicals, it is unable to cope with the repairs needed, regeneration slows down, and your body loses control over many mundane functions, including nourishing your skin, which makes you age.

Tip No. 5: Get on an anti-aging routine. Generally, you cleanse, tone, moisturize twice daily, and exfoliate periodically. You need to match your products with your changing skin needs, such as bringing in barrier-forming ceramides to address weakening surface and moisture magnets like hyaluronic acid to address dryness that is the norm for aging skin. An eye cream that contains peptides and, if you choose, retinol, should also be part of your regimen.

Tip No. 6: Don’t use products with skin damaging ingredients. Fragrance and drying alcohols must be eliminated from your routine. These permanently damage your skin matrix’s ability to capture and hold in moisture.

Tip No. 7: Follow a healthier lifestyle. Quit your vices, eat healthy and workout frequently. You want to prevent hypertension, nerve blockages and heart problems that will limit oxygen and fluids from reaching your skin. When circulation is poor, your skin fails to get the nutrients it needs to recover from damage and regenerate.

Conclusion

You don’t have to just let that eye wrinkle budge when there is a host of things that you can do keep it from showing — for now, at least. Time will come when there’s nothing your can do to stop that wrinkle. Then, you remind yourself what Lauren Bacall once said: “I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that”.
