How to Reduce Under Eye Wrinkles
Let’s face the facts - wrinkles will start to appear as we age and often times they are the first visible sign of aging as our skin begins to lose its elasticity. The skin around the eyes are the most thin and much more delicate, which is why wrinkles tend to appear there first. Other factors like genetics, smoking, unprotected sun exposure, and repetitive expressions can also play a role in causing premature wrinkles and fine lines. Although it is a natural part of your life, it can make you feel self-conscious and lead to lower self-confidence. Thankfully, there are certain home remedies as well as treatments available that may help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles under your eyes. Keep reading to find out more!
How to Reduce Under Eye Wrinkles
1. Practice facial exercises
Certain facial expressions can be effective at tightening the skin under our eyes as well as tone your facial muscles. Practicing facial exercises like facial yoga is a great way to look younger and help relieve muscle tension. The face has approximately 50 muscles that can build a lot of tension over time. A lot of the exercises aim to help you naturally relax your facial muscles, especially the muscles that are constantly overworked (such as the mouth). Facial workouts can reduce crow’s feet and eye wrinkles around your eyes, as well as slim your neck, smooth out laugh lines, and make your cheeks appear fuller and brighter. Creating a routine regimen daily is important to seeing noticeable improvement.
2. Gentle exfoliation
Exfoliating your skin regularly can create more radiant and youthful skin by removing debris, dirt, and excess oil from your face. This also allows anti-aging products to penetrate and absorb into your skin easier. However, over-exfoliating your face can also cause premature aging. It is important to use proper moisturizer for your eyes and face after exfoliating. Exfoliating too much or too aggressively can remove the only protective barrier your skin has from its environmental toxins and the sun’s harmful rays which leaves your skin vulnerable to more damage.
3. Avoid getting too much sun exposure
Proper protection from sunlight can prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots from forming early. Sunscreen is designed to protect the skin from sunburn, skin cancer, and premature aging. A good rule of thumb is to wear sunscreen (especially facial sunscreen) before you step outside, regardless if it;s a sunny day or not. If you have to be in direct sunlight for a prolonged period of time, we highly recommend wearing a brimmed hat and sunglasses to add more protection to help prevent your eyes from squinting, another common expression known to cause wrinkles. It is important to also do research to use the right sunscreen for your face and body but best to stay away from getting too much sun.
4. Moisturize your skin
When your skin is depleted of water, it may shrivel and wrinkles can start to show. Hydrating your skin and using proper moisturizer and drinking enough water can help restore plump, glowing skin and make fine lines and wrinkles less visible. Wrinkle creams often contain active ingredients such as retinoids, vitamin C, hydroxy acids, peptides, and grape seed oil intended to provide additional benefits in stimulating collagen production and improving skin elasticity. Check the labels on facial moisturizers for any harmful ingredients. Avoid products that have parabens, phthalates, BHT, fragrances, lead, and formaldehyde.
5. Consider the Plasma Pen
The Plasma Pen can significantly tighten, lift, regenerate any area of the skin. The plasma pen utilizes fully controlled electricity energy to convert to energized gas (gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen) which is then transmitted to the skin’s surface indirectly to initiate fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are connective tissue cells in the body that repairs tissue damage while producing collagen. Using a plasma pen is more effective than laser treatments because the results are far more predictable, precisely targeting the tissue in need of repair and closes it immediately after, leaving much lower risks of infection. There is also significantly less downtime required for recovery since there are no open wounds or blood compared to laser treatments. Additionally, the plasma pen yields equal or greater, long-lasting results with less risks of hyperpigmentation than lasers.
