About the Skin Around Your Eyes
As we get older, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and natural plumpness, causing those pesky wrinkles to appear.
As the skin around the eye is much thinner than the rest of the face, it’s one of the first places to develop wrinkles.
Under Eye Wrinkle Causes
Although wrinkles are an inevitable sign of aging, there are a number of reasons why fine lines under eyes might be forming earlier than expected.
- Sun Exposure – Collagen is a protein that gives skin its structure, keeping it plump and youthful. Harmful UV rays from the sun can break down this collagen, causing skin to appear ‘aged’ at a faster rate. Our top tip? Always include an SPF within your skincare routine to protect from UV damage.
- Repetitive Facial Movement/Expressions – This is something that we can’t really help. Our eyes are one of the most expressive parts of our bodies and are moving constantly. With every smile, squint or frown, grooves develop in the skin and, as collagen breaks down over time, it stops bouncing back into shape.
- Dehydrated Skin – If skin is lacking in moisture, in addition to feeling dry, flaky and tight, fine lines can also begin to appear, especially around the eyes.
- Eye Rubbing – Rubbing the eyes when you’re tired or stressed, for example, stretches the delicate skin around your eyes. Too much of this breaks down the elastin and leads to the sped-up formation of fine lines and under eye wrinkles.
