We all know that we’ll age. It’s unavoidable. But, why do those little wrinkles around the eyes have to appear so soon?!
Well, the truth is they really don’t. Yes, the skin around the eyes is very delicate, and ages more quickly than the rest of the face. But, there are lots of things we can do prevent that from happening too soon:
1. Be Gentle
Are you guilty of rubbing in your eye cream quite forcefully? I used to do that, and it’s SO bad. As we know, this area is very delicate and must be treated with extra care. That means we should pat eye cream in with our ring finger, which is the weakest and so the gentlest. Whatever you do, never rub or tag skin. That only leads to premature wrinkles.
2. Use An Antioxidant Serum
The delicate skin around your eyes needs antioxidants, too. These guys are pretty powerful and can fight the free radicals that cause premature wrinkles. Some of them can even boost the production of collagen, which helps to keep skin firm.
Just don’t make the mistake of choosing only one of them. Antioxidants work best when used together. So, choose a serum that has as many antioxidants as possible.
3. Don’t Forget Sunscreen
I can’t stress this enough. UV rays are the #1 cause of aging, and, if you don’t wear sunscreen EVERY day, nothing else you do will keep those wrinkles away from your face for long. So, come rain or come shine, use it!
4. Wear Sunglasses
The sun isn’t really that friendly to the skin. It’s not just its UV rays that can do a lot of damage to the skin. Its light makes us squint, and, if repeated enough times, in the long run this movement can cause wrinkles too. So, once you’re done putting sunscreen on, put on sunglasses as well. Only then, you can safely leave the house.
