For all that talk about grey hair and sagging arms, it’s often forgotten that your eyes are commonly the first place to show signs of aging. Eyes are windows to souls - they crinkle when you laugh and squint when you’re stressed - but all of those emotions take a toll on the delicate skin around your eyes.
The wear and tear of constant movement, due to facial expressions leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Focus on protecting your delicate eyes from environmental damage so the skin can better withstand movement.
Look for a good moisturising cream that contains Hyaluronic Acid or Ceramides. Use the product once or twice a day depending on how dry your skin is. Also, make sure to choose a cream corresponding to your skin type.
Pick an eye cream with Vitamin C, green tea, and other antioxidants, this will help brighten the eye area and help to speed collagen production. Apply as part of your night time skin care routine. You can re-apply in the morning as well; for that, you might prefer a lighter formulation, so your eye make-up doesn’t smear.
This is the time to try a retinol product to improve fine lines, texture, and even skin color. Find a product that also contains Hyaluronic Acid for moisture. Use your retinol eye cream only at night; if you tend to be dry, you can use a Hyaluronic Acid eye moisturiser in the day.
Go for a cream with peptides (look for ingredients that contain 'Peptide' like 'Polypeptide' or 'Acetyl Hexapeptide-3). Peptides will help stimulate collagen production and work to improve the fine lines under the eyes. Generally, these products are gentle and non-irritating, so you can use them twice a day.
You need a product with growth factors aka epidermal growth factors (or EGF). Growth factors are like mega-peptides that stimulate the growth of healthy skin cells, and are either plant-based (an example is apple stem cells) or synthetically produced. In helping skin regenerate, products with growth factors improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Use twice daily; if you have dark circles, a product that contains caffeine might help.
At any age, protect your peepers with large, 100 percent UV-protective sunglasses. The shades do a double anti-aging duty: They keep you from squinting in bright light while screening all damaging UV rays, keeping them as bright and youthful-looking as possible.
