6 Simple Ways to Prevent Signs of Aging Around Your Eyes
Did you know the skin around your eyes is the thinnest in the body? That’s right, this means that it is far more delicate and that makes it a lot more susceptible to damage and signs of aging as well! In particular, our eyes tend to be quite vulnerable to environmental factors. So, if you want to avoid those fine lines and wrinkles, here are some ways you can go about it:
Rubbing your eyes can actually help create signs of aging so you’ll want to catch yourself the next time you get sleepy! Also make it a point to be more gentle when you’re applying/removing makeup, seeing to your usual skin routine and when rubbing in certain products. This, with repetition, can all give way to fine lines and wrinkles.
Look out for eye care products
You’d be surprised at how many products exist specifically for the skin around your eyes! Look at the label- remember ingredients like retinol, Vitamins B/C/K, Hyaluronic acid and polypeptides are great for fighting radicals that give way to aging. These are specifically designed to moisturize your skin and leave it looking smooth and supple.
Don’t sacrifice quality
No matter the product, if it goes on your body, quality matters! For any skin care products, make sure they’re all natural and paraben/petrochemical free as well. Make it a point to read labels and find out exactly what you’re putting on your face! Any reaction you may have like redness and itchiness is a sign you need to drop the product immediately.
The last thing you want is dry skin to come about just because you keep forgetting to hydrate! When your skin gets dry, it tends to tighten up and this makes the skin around your eyes show signs of lines. Excessive alcohol too tends to dehydrate the body.
Plan your diet
Certain foods you consume can drastically contribute to the healthiness of your skin. For example, some foods you’ll want to include in your meals like fatty fish, sweet potatoes, avocadoes and your usual fruits and veggies!
If you want to cosmetically have the signs of aging around your eyes reduced, microneedling would be your best bet! This is one of the best tools used to fight aging. It works by creating tiny channels in your skin that stimulate the production of collagen. This stimulated boost in healing helps fight signs of aging.
