Eyes are the windows to our soul and the first thing people see when they meet us. But because the skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate, it is also the first to wrinkle. Let’s face it: aging is a natural process and can’t be avoided. We’re all going to get wrinkles at some point and, once they are there, they can’t be removed. But the good news is, we can prevent them from appearing too early. Here’s how:
1. Treat the eye area with care: the eye area is very delicate and should be treated gently. Don’t scratch, tag or rub your eyes because, overtime, that can lead to wrinkles. Also, always use your ring finger when applying eye cream or liner. Your ring finger is the weakest one and will therefore put less pressure on this delicate area.
2. Use anti-aging moisturizers: anti-aging products won’t repair the damage (no topical product can) but they can prevent it, so the sooner you start using them, the better. Also, moisturizers hydrate and plump skin, making fine lines and wrinkles look smaller.
3. Wear sunscreen: the sun rays are one of the main causes of ages, so don’t forget the eye area when you apply sunscreen every day.
4. Wear sunglasses: if it’s a sunny day and you’re going out, make sure you’re wearing your sunglasses. Not only they will protect you from the damage the sun rays cause to your skin, but they will always prevent you from squinting, which can cause wrinkles in the long run, on those bright days.
