When we begin the aging process, our face is the first to show the signs of aging. Even more so, our eyes. The skin becomes dehydrated due to the lack of collagen production and oil glands. Therefore, all of the free radicals we face on a daily basis begin to take their toll and show up on our face in the form of wrinkles, lines, and even discoloration in some areas of the face. However, it is never too late to start caring for the skin and battling the wrinkles above and around our eyes.
Getting rid of the wrinkles does not have to be a hard or expensive process. It all depends upon how much time you have and how much you are willing or even able, to spend. Among the products you can use, there are other lifestyle changes and improvements you can make to help with the eye wrinkles.
Always ensure you are getting the right amount of sleep. You might have noticed a time where you went to bed late and woke up early, only to be faced with dark circles or baggy eyes, along with a few wrinkles. This is why getting enough sleep is highly important in the prevention of wrinkles.
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. It is best to get the daily-recommended intake of water, 8 glasses of water. This helps keep your skin and also your body, well hydrated fighting off the formation of any wrinkles in its path.
If you smoke, consider quitting. Smoke damages the collagen which can increase the wrinkle formation and also make one appear rather old and even tired.
Always wash your face before bed. Even if you do not have a lot of time to care for your skin at night, find a gentle cleanser and you only have to take out 5 or 10 minutes of your evening to keep wrinkles at bay. Otherwise, the dirt and oil that conjured on your face during the day will then sink in to your pores, etc, causing irritation.
Wear moisturizers and eye creams that contain SPF. This is highly important as the sun damages the skin and dries it out, therefore encouraging wrinkles to appear because your skin lacks the protection that it needs. Many products today come with at least a small amount of SPF but depending upon your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, you might choose a very high SPF.
Caring for wrinkles above and around the eyes does not have to be hard feat and as you notice above, simply changing some things you do in your daily lifestyle can make a world of difference.
