Growing up can be daunting, and so can the wrinkles that come with it. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading to find out why we get premature eye wrinkles and how we can get rid of them.
Your 20s and 30s are supposed to be the best times of your life: graduating from college, going out with friends, starting your career, falling in love, and finding yourself. These are the years when you actually become an adult and start doing adult things. The last thing you would be worried about at that age would definitely be wrinkles because you probably have a lot of time left before you have them, right?
It might surprise you, but a lot of women start to notice the appearance of fine lines around the face by the age of 25. The most common lines that appear prematurely are the ones around the eyes, particularly the under eye, because the skin around this area is the thinnest and most delicate compared to the rest of the body. So, let’s take a deeper look on what premature eye wrinkles are, why they appear, and how we can control them.
WHAT ARE PREMATURE EYE WRINKLES?
Premature wrinkles, or as some like to call them, baby wrinkles, are tiny creases and early indentations that usually appear in areas where the skin moves repeatedly (and weakens over time) with expressions. Like we said, the most common of the premature wrinkles are the wrinkles around the eyes. This is because the skin in this area is about 40 percent thinner compared to the rest of your body and, therefore, can droop at a faster rate. These lines appear on the corners of the eyes and underneath the eyes.
WHY DO THEY SHOW UP?
All types of wrinkles start to appear on the skin as we lose collagen and elastin. This happens throughout our lives and cannot be stopped completely. However, there are other factors that can speed up the process. Let’s take a look at the 3 S’s: sun, smog, and sleep.
It’s no secret that the sun is the number one cause for premature wrinkles. Yes, the sun may feel warm and happy, but each time you step out of the house, its harmful UV rays are attacking the skin by breaking down collagen and elastin. That’s why wearing sunblock is not just for when you’re heading to the beach. It’s important to throw on some SPF every single day and drink plenty of water to keep your skin safe and fresh.
If you live in a smoggy city, this may be one of the causes of your premature wrinkles. Air pollution also accelerates the loss of collagen and elastin and can not only cause wrinkles but also enlarged pores, dry skin, and age spots. There’s nothing much you can do about the outside world, but you can improve the air in your home by investing in an air purifier. Also, use a cleanser on your face every day and night to wash away the harmful toxins from your skin.
Studies show that people who lack sleep are more prone to having eye wrinkles, more hanging eyelids, redder eyes, more swollen eyes, and darker circles under the eyes. This is because sleep deprivation decreases the blood flow to the face. Doctors recommend getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night for a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, sleeping on your side often causes your face to scrunch up and may contribute to premature wrinkles too. Try to train yourself to sleep on your back as much as possible.
HOW CAN I MINIMIZE THEM?
Dry brushing is something that is typically done on your body. However, dermatologists recommend trying this on your face as well, particularly under the eyes.
It involves taking a dry soft-bristled brush and moving it around your skin. This method works to exfoliate the skin, improve circulation, and stimulate collagen production. This, in turn, can help prevent wrinkles not just under the eyes, but around your entire body.
Using petroleum jelly for wrinkles is a remedy loved even by celebrities. It is an occlusive agent, which means that it locks in moisture in the skin.
All you have to do is take a bit of the petroleum jelly and massage it under the eyes and on other affected areas for a few minutes. Don’t rinse, just leave the unabsorbed petroleum jelly overnight. You definitely see the results if you do this every night. However, dermatologists suggest not using this method if you have acne-prone skin.
Rosehip oil is used by the Duchess of Cambridge herself, Kate Middleton. She swears by its anti-aging effects. The vitamin A, vitamin E, and fatty acids present in it penetrate into the deeper layers of skin, lighting scars, and banishing wrinkles.
Just apply 3 to 4 drops of the oil to your fingertips and massage it gently under the eyes and leave the oil to sit overnight. If you want to see its magic, use this every night, just like the Duchess.
Kiwis rejuvenate the skin as they are rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, and lycopene. These antioxidants boost the production of collagen and elastin which, of course, keep our skin firm.
Just grab a medium-sized kiwi, peel and cut the fruit into small pieces, and grind in a blender to get a paste. Apply this generously onto the face and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing off. Do this twice awake to see its full effects.
Almonds contain vitamin E that restores the natural elasticity of the skin. This mask requires just 5 to 6 almonds and ¼ cup of milk. To make it, you first have to soak the almonds overnight in the milk. Then, the next day, remove the almonds and grind along with the milk they were soaked in to make a paste. Apply this generously onto the face and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing with water. Together with the milk, almonds moisturize the skin and make it soft and glowing, so do this twice a week for young and healthy looking skin.
Celery Juice Mask
Celery is very high in water content and is excellent at rehydrating the skin. It also contains minerals like magnesium and potassium, and vitamins like A, B1, and B6 that nourish the skin. This method is often used to reduce the appearance of acne scars, but its healing properties can also be used for reducing wrinkles.
To make this, juice a celery stick or two, and mix two tablespoons of the juice with two tablespoons of powdered oatmeal until it becomes a paste. Apply this paste to your face and neck and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, wet your hands with water and gently scrub the paste away before rinsing your face. Try this out twice a week and see what it can do to your skin.
