Top Tips and Under Eye Wrinkle Treatments

Understanding the Under-Eye Wrinkles: The Culprits Behind the Ageing Eyes

The skin around our eyes is thinner and more delicate than the skin on the rest of our faces. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin—the proteins responsible for skin elasticity—decreases.

 This leads to the formation of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. But what are the underlying causes of these pesky under-eye wrinkles? 

The Villains Behind Under-Eye Wrinkles

  • Sun Exposure: UV rays are the arch-nemesis of youthful skin! They accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin, leading to premature aging and the formation of wrinkles.
  • Stress: Chronic stress can affect skin health, contributing to inflammation and premature aging.
  • Lack of Sleep: Skimping on sleep is a surefire way to invite puffiness, dark circles, and accelerate the aging process.
  • Poor Diet: Excessive alcohol and salt intake can dehydrate the skin and exacerbate wrinkles.
  • Digital Screens: Overexposure to digital screens can cause eye strain, leading to wrinkles and premature aging.

  • Vitamin C: A powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from free radical damage, promotes collagen synthesis, and brightens the skin.
  • Under Eye Wrinkle Products: Choose products specifically formulated to target under-eye wrinkles, containing ingredients like peptides, hyaluronic acid, and caffeine to hydrate, plump, and tighten the skin.

2. Healthy Diet: Feed Your Skin From Within

  • Alcohol Intake: Limit alcohol consumption, as it can dehydrate the skin and contribute to wrinkles. Opt for hydrating beverages like water and herbal teas.
  • Water Intake: Stay hydrated by drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily to maintain skin elasticity and plumpness.
  • Salt Intake: Reduce salt intake to prevent water retention and puffiness around the eyes. Opt for a low-sodium diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

3. Healthy Lifestyle: Your Daily Habits Matter

  • Minimising Sun Exposure: Wear sunglasses and a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily to protect the delicate skin around the eyes from UV damage.
  • Reducing Stress: Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, and yoga to reduce stress levels and promote skin health.
  • Getting More Sleep: Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night to allow the skin to repair and regenerate. Use a silk eye mask to block out light and promote better sleep.
  • Sleeping on a Silk Pillowcase: Silk pillowcases reduce friction and help to prevent sleep lines and wrinkles. Opt for a silk pillowcase to maintain skin smoothness and reduce the risk of sleep-induced wrinkles.
  • Avoiding Overuse of Digital Screens: Take regular breaks, adjust screen brightness and contrast, and use blue light-blocking glasses to reduce eye strain and minimise the risk of digital-induced wrinkles.

4. Prevention and Treatment of Medical Issues: Address the Underlying Causes

  • Sinus Issues or Allergies: Addressing these conditions can reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. Consult with a healthcare professional for appropriate treatment options, such as antihistamines or nasal sprays.

  • Improved Skin Texture: Micro-needling promotes cell turnover, exfoliates the skin, and improves overall skin texture.
