Whether you’re already using an anti aging and anti wrinkle skin treatment or wisely planning to preserve your youthful appearance as long as possible, eye wrinkles should be on your mind. The sensitive skin around your eyes is one of the first places the signs of aging appear, because unlike the rest of your face, the skin in that area doesn’t produce its own moisture. Anti wrinkle eye creams are an important part of the mix to help reduce and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, but lifestyle choices can be just as important.
Anti Wrinkle Eye Tip Number One: Wear Sunglasses!
There are many factors that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles forming around your eyes, including repetitive motions with your face. That includes squinting, which happens just about every time you step out into the sun. Even in winter, the process of squinting against the sun can create creases and lines that, before long, will be visible even indoors. Always wear sunglasses in the daytime, even if you’re just walking down the block! Not only will you have an excuse to sport a great fashion accessory, but you’ll be preventing the signs of aging and wrinkles around your eyes.
Anti Wrinkle Eye Tip Number Two: Hydration and Antioxidants
Because the skin around your eyes is more sensitive and naturally produces less moisture than elsewhere on your face, internal skin care (or the concept of Inclusive Health®) is also important for preserving youthful-looking skin. Be sure to not only drink enough water each day, but also “eat your water” as described in Dr. Murad’s best-selling book The Water Secret. Focus on a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly dark green vegetables. The cellular structure of water in fruits and vegetables is easier to absorb into your body and will keep you hydrated and healthy longer. And not only are fruits and vegetables a key way to “eat your water,” but they are rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are nature’s natural warriors against the signs of aging, including the lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet that can form around your eyes.
Anti Wrinkle Eye Tip Number Three: Use the Right Anti Aging Eye Creams
Of course, the anti aging and anti wrinkle products you use to help smooth out and restore the skin around your eyes are also highly important. An anti aging product with retinol is ideal for boosting collagen production, which can minimize wrinkles. If eye wrinkles are not yet visible, you may want to consider a preventive eye cream such as Murad Essential-C Eye Cream SPF 15, which delivers an intensive boost of topical antioxidants. It also includes an SPF to prevent and reduce the signs of aging and wrinkles caused by exposure to UV rays. An eye cream or anti wrinkle eye treatment is one of the most important parts of any skin care routine, as it helps replenish and protect an area of your face that tends to age more quickly than the rest of your skin.
Making responsible decisions about lifestyle choices (and fashion accessories!) and using great skin care products for eye wrinkles can result in looking younger, longer. Follow these tips and keep that youthful look around your eyes!
