Are Under Eye Wrinkles Getting You Down?

Treat Under Eye Wrinkles

The skin under your eyes is very different from the rest of your facial skin.  It’s often compared to tissue paper due to the fact that it is so thin and fragile.  Because it is so extremely delicate it’s the first place to show the signs of aging.  Unfortunately, wrinkles just love this delicate area and find it very easy to settle down leaving crevices that make you look older than you actually are.  As frustrating as these blasted wrinkles can be, there are some things you can do to help prevent and minimize their appearance.

1.  Be Gentle
Never ever tug at the skin around your eyes!  If you are someone who wears eye makeup, like me, make sure you remove it ever so carefully every single night (coconut oil makes a great and inexpensive makeup remover.)  After applying your makeup remover, gently wipe away the makeup without pulling at your skin.

2.  Stay hydrated
Have you ever noticed that when you deprive yourself of fluids and begin to feel parched that your under eye wrinkles look more pronounced and you look more tired and bedraggled?  Drinking plenty of water throughout the day will help keep your skin juicy and plump reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles along the way.

3.  Moisturize
Keep your eye area deeply moisturized both morning and evening.  Use a rich eye cream loaded with moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter, borage oil, argan oil, avocado oil, etc.  Keep the skin under your eyes thoroughly quenched, you may need to reapply during the day if your feel that your skin is looking dry and thirsty.

4.  Antioxidants
Applying antioxidants (vitamin C, pomegranate, green tea, argan oil, vitamin E, seabuckthorn berry) to your eye area will help keep free radicals from attacking your skin from the outside.  Eating plenty of antioxidant rich foods (dark berries, veggies, nuts, seeds, and beans) will fight free radical attacks from the inside.  Keeping free radicals from attacking and damaging your cells will promote healthier skin and will help to prevent wrinkles.

5.  Stimulate collagen production
As you age your collagen production slows down and your collagen fibers become brittle resulting in lines and wrinkles.  You can prompt collagen synthesis with vitamin A (retinol, rosehip seed oil), peptides, or red LED light therapy.  Building your collagen and elastin will help plump your skin from the inside producing a smoother surface.  Red LED light therapy, such as the DPL Therapy System, also has the ability to repair past damage while reducing existing wrinkles.

6.  Sunscreen

Use a mineral sunscreen such as Suntegrity BB Cream every single day.  The sun’s harmful rays are the number one cause of premature aging so you need to be diligent about using a safe and effective sunscreen.  When you are out and about also make sure to wear sunglasses so that you are protecting your fragile eye area to the best of your ability.


Are under eye wrinkles a big frustration?  Yes, they most certainly are, but you can do things to make your eye area look more youthful, renewed, and refreshed; looking like yourself only better.   There is hope as these tips will help you gently and naturally ease the ravages of time.

Great tips, Victoria. the skin under the eye really needs some good care. I never knew coconut oil can be used as a make up remover. Will try it out. Having good sleep is also very important.

As we age the skin under our eyes become thinner, our skin starts sagging and therefor wrinkles start developing. The way out during young age is to use a sunscreen and after you cross your mid 20’s is using a good anti aging cream.

You are so right Richa! Sleep is so often taken for granted but plays such an important role in your health as well as your skin.

Thanks for sharing these tips, Victoria. Most of us usually neglect this area but what we don’t realize is the fact that our under eyes are just as important.

Unsightly undereye wrinkles can really take a toll on our confidence and self-esteem. I protect this delicate area by applying a de-puffing and brightening roll-on product that contains caffeine :) Thanks for sharing your own set of tips, Victoria!

You are so welcome Joy :) It is an area that can’t afford to be neglected.

They really can take a toll on your confidence Kristine. I used to hide behind my sunglasses and felt so much better when my eyes were hidden from the world. I still have some lines, but my eyes look so much better and younger after using specific things; red light therapy, argan oil, sun protection, etc.

The skin under the eye is very sensitive and need utmost care. We often tend to ignore but under eye wrinkles and dark circles can make your eyes look pale and dull. I agree with the point that proper sleep is a must. Thanks for these great tips.

Emilia, you are so right; smiling is so important and can brighten your face in an instant.

I love coconut oil for so many reasons Kelly. It is such a great multi-tasking product.

Sleep is so important and can make such an impact on the appearance of your skin and how you feel.

Thank you for the valuable beauty tips. This does not require botox and surgical procedures, and since I’m squeamish around needles, your tips will work well for me.

Botox and surgical procedures make me nervous as well :) I’m all for any natural solution that works.

First of all, I envy the model’s eyes. And yes, these tips are very simple but sometimes, it’s hard to get them going. A woman needs a driving spirit in order to keep up with these simple tips so as to avoid the onset of wrinkles.

You’re so right Sandra. In order to diminish and prevent wrinkles you really do have to be persistent and consistent.

Stimulate the colagen is the key to keep the skin health. Eat fresh fruit and exercise regularly can also maintain the skin health.
