You don’t need to have ageing skin to suffer from wrinkles under the eyes. Many of our customers who order Babor Skinovage PX Sensational Eyes Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream regularly are under the age of 35.
The truth is that fine lines and crows feet don’t just appear on senior citizens. Also called «smile lines» because they form when you grin, wrinkles under your eyes can make you look older than your youthful years. Depending on the cause of the wrinkles, you may be able to eliminate or significantly reduce your under-eye wrinkles.
According to Live Strong, age is not the not the only thing that causes wrinkles under the eyes. Sun damage, squinting, smiling, smoking, acne, muscle movement, surgery, and injuries also cause facial wrinkles. If you notice more wrinkles under one eye, smiling or sleeping may be the culprit. You may smile brighter on one side of your face, or you may sleep more on one side than the other side, pressing that side of your face against the pillow, resulting in under-eye wrinkles.
A dermatologist can help you decide if you need a more aggressive procedure to treat the wrinkles under your eyes. Resurfacing treatments remove your abnormal tissue and rough skin, stimulating the growth of new skin and the production of collagen and elastin. You cannot have a chemical peel around your eyes, but you can try microdermabrasion, which gives similar results. The doctor uses a tool to polish the skin with tiny crystals and then vacuums up the crystals and dead skin cells. Laser resurfacing works well around the eyes, but by itself, it cannot eliminate crow’s feet.
You can help prevent wrinkles under your eyes by avoiding the harmful substances that cause them. Stay out of the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun is the strongest. When you are in the sun, apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15. Wear sunglasses and a hat to help shade your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays. Don’t smoke, but do drink plenty of water to keep your skin moisturized. Alternate the sides you sleep on to keep your skin from settling in one place under your eye.
