Now that the bright, sunny days are here, it’s time to get serious about eye wrinkles. The skin around the eyes is especially sensitive. It’s a delicate area that needs specific care and attention. The paper thin skin will develop fine lines easier than any other area of your face, and these eye wrinkles are not always easy to prevent.
From smiling and squinting, to laughing and crying, permanent lines on the face and eye wrinkles are inevitable. However, there’s plenty you can do to help prevent the premature formation of permanent creases, without giving up your natural expressions.
PURCHASE QUALITY SUNGLASSES
Summer can be especially hard on eye wrinkles because of the harsh sun. The bright rays will make you squint more and will expose your skin to damaging UV rays. These harmful rays withdraw the natural moisture from your skin and cause the development of wrinkles.
And we already squint naturally, when we smile, laugh and scrunch to focus our eyes. These natural movements slowly, over time, destroy the elasticity of your skin causing fine lines to form. For the best summertime protection, purchase a quality pair of shades that protect from 99 to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB light.
You have to keep the inside of your body hydrated if you want the outside of your body to remain healthy and functional. And the area around your eyes looses moisture and hydration very easily (especially in the summer). We rub our eyes often throughout the day, and often sweat more during the warmer months, causing the formation of eye wrinkles.
Drinking enough water each day will help your skin retain its elasticity, as well as help tighten the skin around any eye wrinkles. You also want to be sure to wash your face twice each day with clean water. Keeping the skin clean and hydrated is imperative to avoiding premature wrinkles.
In order to best avoid eye wrinkles this summer you’ll need protection. Moisturizers and sunscreens will keep your skin’s natural oils locked in and keep sun damage out. Do not apply sunscreen directly on the eyelids, but around the eye area, to avoid redness and irritation. And be sure to wear protection lotions and creams daily.
There are many products available on the market that are two-in-one, both a moisturizer and sunscreen. And it’s important that you use a product with an SPF of at least 30 for the sensitive eye area.
EAT YOUR VITAMINS
Eating fruits rich in vitamin C, vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids will help keep your skin vibrant and healthy. Your diet should be just as much a part of your skin care routine as applying moisturizer, and is of the easiest ways to avoid eye wrinkles in the summer.
Many summer recipes include avocado, fresh fish, leafy greens and fresh berries, all of which include the necessary vitamins and minerals to maintain glowing skin. Fighting against the sun’s damaging rays and natural eye wrinkles formation starts with you and what you put in your body.
Smoking isn’t just bad for your health; it’s bad for your skin. If you want to do your best to avoid eye wrinkles– put down the cigarettes. Not only will you stain your teeth and raise your risk of serious health concerns, you’ll also be dehydrating your skin and exposing your face to toxins.
Smoking narrows your blood vessels, which reduces the amount of nutrients that get to the skin. And your skin needs these vital nutrients to remain smooth, healthy and wrinkle-free. Without proper hydration your skin produces less collagen, making it easier for wrinkles to form.
