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.

Use a Targeted Under Eye Treatment

If you’re worried about fine lines, it’s a good idea to pay your under eye wrinkles some extra TLC with a targeted treatment.

Try the REVOLUTION SKINCARE TARGETED UNDER EYE SERUM to give your under eyes a boost of skin-loving ingredients, in a formula that’s suitable for this delicate area.

Containing Hyaluronic Acid, this serum delivers moisture to dehydrated under eyes, helping to not only plump fine lines, but to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.

Introduce Retinol into Your Skincare Routine

RETINOL is renowned for its anti-aging properties in skincare. There are many ways to include it within your skincare routine, but since we’re focusing on fine lines under eyes, it’s crucial to ensure the formula is gentle enough to care for this delicate area of skin.

For the best under eye cream containing retinol, choose the REVOLUTION SKINCARE RETINOL EYE CREAM. It’s expertly formulated to suit the skin around the eyes, containing only 0.08% Retinol to avoid irritation. Fine lines are left plumped and other signs of aging (such as uneven skin tone and puffiness) are targeted and soothed.

Expert Tip: Avoid using Retinol alongside other strong ingredients such as AHAs and BHA. Depending on your skin’s sensitivity, try alternating ingredients nightly or weekly.

Apply Skincare Gently

No matter what skincare products you use, if they’re applied too vigorously, this can have an adverse effect on your under eye wrinkles (similarly to rubbing the eyes too often, as mentioned earlier).

Skincare should be applied with virtually no pressure at all. Take time to gently massage each layer of skincare, from cleanser to moisturizer, into your skin, allowing each product to fully absorb and work its magic. This is also a great way to de-stress after a busy day!

Use an Under Eye Mask

Face masks are a go-to when it comes to self care, and the ingredients in targeted under eye patch masks are perfect for providing that area with an extra boost.

The REVOLUTION SKINCARE GOLD EYE HYDROGEL HYDRATING EYE PATCHES WITH COLLOIDAL GOLD are just the ticket to hydrate, soothe and plump under eye wrinkles, helping to reduce their appearance and support an overall youthful radiance.

Formulated with vegan Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin, the ingredients in these under eye patches work in harmony to draw and bind moisture into the skin, helping to firm and lift the delicate eye area.

How to use: Place one patch under each eye with the widest part on the outside of your eye. Leave for around 10 minutes before removing. Gently massage in any excess serum. 

Don’t Skip SPF

Remember what we said about the sun’s UV rays being harmful to our skin? By wearing an SPF every day, you’re not only protecting skin from sunburn, but from the aging effects that the sun can have on our skin too.

SPF should be applied every morning as the final stage of your routine, before makeup. 


On days when you’re wearing makeup, choose the best under eye concealer to brighten the eyes and reduce the appearance of under eye wrinkles.

The MAKEUP REVOLUTION EYE BRIGHT ILLUMINATING UNDER EYE CONCEALER is available in a full range of shades and is formulated with Vitamin C to treat the area as you conceal.

Eyes are left looking big, bright and beautiful with fewer fine lines under eyes, so the rest of your makeup look can really pop.
