Best Ways To Treat Eye Wrinkles For More Youthful-looking Skin
Fine lines under the eyes are a pesky part of aging. While getting older is inevitable, there are ways to slow down the signs of aging. Eye-wrinkles are usually a dead giveaway on someone’s age, but not anymore. We’re giving you the best tricks in the business to keep crow’s feet at bay and get younger-looking skin.
Causes of fine lines under eyes
Over time, wrinkles form on delicate areas of your body; this is one of the unfortunate but inevitable parts of getting older. Your face, neck, hands, and chest will form wrinkles because of the breakdown of collagen and elastin (both of which are essential proteins) in the skin. Did you know that fine lines may be caused by more than just age? Several factors can contribute to fine lines, including smoking, sun exposure, lack of a proper skincare routine, unhealthy diet, and genetics. When we smile, squint, frown, or laugh, the eyes can’t help but move when making natural facial expressions. The continuous repetitive movements of the face and the tissue-thin skin around the eyes leave this space, especially prone to wrinkle development.
Usually, the first noticeable small lines or wrinkles you will see suddenly appear are around and under your eyes. You may be familiar with the nicknames like crow’s feet, smile lines, or under-eye wrinkles. No matter what you call them, most women want them gone. The eyes are one of the first areas of your body that can immediately give away your age. Thankfully, there are plenty of safe, effective treatment options that can help diminish fine lines.
Understanding the Lines Under the Eyes
Age 20: From age 20 onward, collagen production begins to decline. Under-eye wrinkles are still uncommon at this age, but it’s a good time to think about prevention methods.
Age 30: The skin will start to lose its ability to transport moisture between layers.
Age 40: After the age of 40, collagen production is significantly reduced. Eventually, it will stop altogether. The skin also begins to lose elasticity, and fine lines are likely to be more visible.
Top 3 Treatment Options to Get Rid of Lines Under The Eyes
There are various treatment options from topical creams, injections, and microneedling. The best treatment plan for you will depend on how severe your fine lines under the eyes are, how much you want to spend, and how well you tolerate pain.
1. Topical creams
These are creams that you can buy in the drugstore or high-end cosmetics shops like Sephora. Look for moisturizers and serums formulated with high amounts of hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and retinol. These ingredients absorb quickly into the delicate under-eye skin to offer immediate and long-lasting results with continued use. This is by far the most cost-effective method to reduce fine lines around the eyes.
We know this one may be a little controversial; however, Botox still is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the US. Botox will give you complete line-smoothing results after a quick trip to your doctor’s office. The effects last up to 4 months, and you’ll start to notice your fine lines diminishing just a few days after the injections.
Microneedling (a.k.a. dermarolling) has been making some serious waves throughout the beauty community recently. Women have been sharing their stellar results of this minimally painful procedure. Usually, treatments are done once per week, and within a few months, fine lines should drastically improve. It’s done by puncturing tiny holes into the skin with a roller covered in micro-needles. The process stimulates collagen production. Note that microneedling may be too harsh for most sensitive skin types. So for those of you who have rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, or any inflammatory conditions, it’s best to try another remedy to treat your under-eye lines.
Aging has its ups and downs. Yes, we get wiser, but we also have to put up with lines and wrinkles forming in places that we would rather they didn’t. The good news is that there are tons of different treatment options to combat the signs of aging. Don’t settle for anything but your best results. Try different treatments until you find the right one to tackle your eye-wrinkles once and for all.

A Year in review!
This year has definitely been a wild ride. I’ve learned so much more about my hair and skin in this last year than I ever thought I would or needed to know! All the way from using witch hazel and not paying attention to my curl pattern, to staying completely fragrance free with face products and staying away from harsh toners and paying attention to what my hair was trying to do! Using this app has really opened doors for me that I wouldn’t thought possible for my beauty process! I can’t wait to see what more years bring me, and us! Thank you @cherie!

What is the product? Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray How does it work? Thermal Water works by soothing the skin and calming any irritation What are the notable ingredients? Mineral Spring Water What is the price? $18.50CAD Where can you purchase? Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmacy and online How long have I been using it for? I’ve been using thermal water for over two years, I started off using this product on my body and now still use it on my face What is my experience ? My experience with thermal water has been good, I suffer from eczema on both my body and face. It was hard finding products that wouldn’t irritate or cause a flare up. When that happened this product saved my skin and soothed it. At first I was not exactly sure how water would help my skin, but after doing research thermal waters are meant to have healing properties for the body and skin. What are my thoughts? This product is nothing short of amazing, you are able to use it for multiple areas and it lasts so long. The mist is super fine which makes it perfect for spraying on large or small spots, and pressing into the skin similar to how you apply a toner. Would I recommend to a friend? I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family or even someone looking to help soothe their skin but who doesn’t want to break the bank!! My overall rating? 5/5 Would I repurchase? I have and will continue to repurchase this product until I find something that exceeds how amazing this is! #CheriePartner
