5 Ways to Reverse Signs of Aging Around the Eyes- Under Eye Wrinkles

Wrinkles Around Eyes

The skin around your eyes is the thinnest, and most delicate skin on your body at only 1/9th the thickness or the rest of your skin. This makes it more prone to damage and signs of aging. In fact, the skin around your eyes is usually the first place people show signs of aging with puffy eyes, fine lines under eyes, wrinkles around eyes, and dark circles. There are special types of anti-aging serums and moisturizers as well as natural remedies to help fight these early signs and prevent more external damage. Use these five under eye wrinkle treatment tips to reverse the signs of aging causing wrinkles around eyes.

Under Eye Wrinkle Treatments & Eye Wrinkles Cream

1. Moisturize and Treat

Fine lines under eyes and wrinkles around eyes are the most common early signs of aging. The things we do on a daily basis like squinting and rubbing our eyes can create crow's feet and other eye wrinkles, even if we don't notice we are doing them.

2. Drink Water

Sounds simple enough? Yes, but drinking water is one of the most important things you can do for your body is to drink water. Drinking water can help improve blood circulation, the root cause of puffy eyes. By avoiding salty foods and increasing your water intake, you can reduce water retention to bring down the puffiness. Adults are recommended to drink at least eight glasses of water each day, which can improve your eating habits, hydration, and other natural bodily functions. In addition to drink water, in the morning when you wake up before your use any skin care products, splash cold water on your face to help reduce swelling around the eyes.

3. Get Sleep

One of the simplest, yet sometimes hardest lifestyle changes to make to prevent more signs of aging is getting into a consistent sleep schedule. There are a variety of reasons why this may seem impossible for some people whether they have a sleep disorder, kids, work, or whatever the reason may be, but if possible, getting into a routine can significantly help. It isn't necessarily how long you are sleeping, rather the consistency of your schedule. When you keep a consistent sleep pattern, hormones and biorhythms in your body are released during different stages of your sleep, and by changing your sleep often, your body will become confused on when to release these. This, in turn, disrupts the biological process, leading to inflammatory substances in the blood, the ones that can damage the skin and result in premature aging. Additionally, consistent sleep gives your anti-aging products a chance to work their magic.

The position you sleep can also impact your skin. To avoid clogging pores and build up on your skin, sleep with your head slightly elevated. Try different pillow positions to achieve an optimal position that is most comfortable to you, as being comfortable leads to a good night's sleep.

4. Exfoliate to Correct

Most often people forget to exfoliate their eye area. It is common to exfoliate other areas of the body for anti-aging purposes, but chemical exfoliation is a must under eye wrinkle treatment.  Retinols have been used for decades as the top anti aging product or ingredient on the market for under eye wrinkle treatment, but they are commonly not used in the eye area because sensitivity and irritation can occur. If your skin is able to tolerate a lose dose retinol product, you should try a retinol with a low concentration such as SkinMedica's Retinol Complex 0.25.

Our pick for a perfect night time exfoliating eye cream is Restorsea Revitalizing Eye Cream with Vibransea Complex. All Restorsea products contain an enzyme called AquaBeautineXL which is derived from salmon roe oil. This natural enzyme gently exfoliates the skin without causing redness or irritation. 

To see the best results use a moisturizing eye cream in the morning to soften the lines and reduce puffiness, and use an exfoliating eye cream at night to correct unwanted signs of aging around the eyes. 


5. Protect

Everyone has heard the importance of using a sunscreen everyday to prevent signs of aging on the skin. But again, the eye area is sometimes overlooked due to its sensitivity. In order to prevent future damage to the eye area, a sunscreen of some sort must be included in a morning routine.

jane iredale Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen Brush can easily dust on a mineral protection. Brush this powder all over face and eyes after makeup and skin care routine in the morning. The jane iredale Powder-Me SPF comes in different colors and is an easy and fast way to get a water resistant broad spectrum coverage to the eye area and any area that is exposed to sun exposure. 

Eat the Right Foods

In addition to drinking a lot of water and getting a good night's sleep, eating the right foods can, in fact, help reverse the signs of aging.

  • Vitamin-C rich foods such as yellow peppers help to prevent free radicals from damaging your skin.
  • Lean proteins, like those found in eggs, help build collagen to prevent sagging.
  • Selenium rich foods like whole-grain barley help fight against damage from UVA/UVB rays.
  • Salmon has a variety of anti-aging factors including omega-3 fatty acids that reduce inflammation, reducing breakouts, and astaxanthin, which can help give your skin a youthful appearance.

By using these five tips and changing some small habits in your life, you too can have youthful, firmer, and vibrant looking skin again.

    I’m very skeptical anything will help except for the water? I know I have never been one to drink even 1 glass a water! So will definitely add plenty of water daily into my routine, and out of my desperation for younger, healthier eyes I will, followup on the products reluctant they will work though? Nonetheless, Thank you for the info!!
