The skin around the eyes is thinner than the rest of the face, which makes it more prone to aging. It is also more dry, because there are far fewer oil-producing glands in this area. Periorbital (around the eye) wrinkles are very difficult to treat, but luckily there are a few things that you can do to make a huge difference!
Change Your Diet
Diet can play a huge role in the development of wrinkles. Inflammation from sugar and fried foods, puffiness from salt, and a lack of B vitamins can make the skin look tired and inflamed. Up your intake of fruits and veggies, especially when indulging in a high-fat meal. Try adding healthy green smoothies. Also be sure to drink a lot of water (64 oz. is recommended) and avoid fried, salty food when you can.
Get More Sleep
Make sure you are getting plenty of rest and relaxation. While you are asleep your skin takes that time to repair and renew. When you don’t get enough sleep, your skin becomes sallow and dull and the stress from a lack of sleep can also release the hormone cortisol. When this hormone is circulating it causes free radical damage to the healthy skin cells and encourages wrinkles. So make sure you are getting plenty of rest and relaxation! Try to meditate in the morning, and be sure to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night.
Use an Eye Gel
MDSUN’s Intensive Eye Gel addresses delicate skin concerns with a unique blend of anti-aging, brightening, and hydrating ingredients, leaving the skin more firm, moisturized, and radiant. Infused with sodium hyaluronate, coenzyme q10 and vitamin E, the gel’s formula helps to support natural collagen and elastin, softens expression lines and wrinkles, and restores suppleness and youthfulness. Anti-fatigue agents vitamins C and K reduce under-eye puffiness and dark circles significantly so that the skin looks brighter and you look well-rested. Precious algae and oat extracts further protect the skin against aging and environmental damage. Use twice daily, morning and evening after cleansing and toning. Apply a small amount to clean finger tips and gently massage onto the skin around the eye area and you’re good to go!
