Wrinkles that occur under the eye are a normal part of the aging process.
However, many people do not want to grow old naturally. If you are one of these people and you would like to fight these wrinkles, you do have options.
There are many things you can do naturally to prevent or reduce under eye wrinkles.
Instead of undergoing painful and dangerous surgeries or chemical treatments, you can naturally treat under eye wrinkles or lines.
Apply Your Makeup Correctly
Applying your makeup correctly is one of the most important things you can do to prevent wrinkles. When you apply eye shadow it is very important that you start on the side of your lid closest to your nose.
Move the applicator slowly and gently from the inside to the outside of the eye lid.
Never pull or tug on your eyelid as it can cause wrinkles to appear very quickly. You also want to wash your eye makeup off in the same way.
Gently pat or blot your eyelid rather than rubbing vigorously. If your makeup will not come off with clear water you may need to use an eye makeup remover that will aid in the removal process.
Apply Cold Compresses
When you are tired or stressed out your eyes may become swollen. When the skin around the eyes is swollen or puffy it becomes stretched.
Stretching the skin will cause wrinkles to appear. When swelling occurs you should take measures to reduce it quickly.
You can reduce swelling and puffiness around the eyes by applying a cold compress. You can do this by applying an ice pack or anything that is cold. Many people use cold cucumbers.
However, some people believe that cold steeped tea bags work better. It is believed that the caffeine in the tea will help to reduce swelling. If you choose to use tea bags, make sure you have squeezed them until no fluid is left to leak into the eye.
Many people suffer from dry skin. When the skin becomes dry, it is very likely that wrinkles will show up. For this reason, it is important that you moisturize your skin daily.
Use a light moisturizer that will provide lasting moisture. Some lotions are very thick and do not provide lasting results. You may want to try products that include aloe, oatmeal, and essential oils for better relief.
Get Your Eyes Tested
If you are having problems seeing you may eventually start to squint or strain your eyes. This can cause the skin around your eyes to wrinkle. In most cases you will notice that crow’s feet start to develop.
The solution in this case would be to see your eye doctor when you first notice that your eyes are straining to see. You may need to get glasses or contacts for permanent relief.
All of these solutions will help in preventing and correcting under eye wrinkles. However, if you are in search of a quick fix, there are a number of wrinkle creams and solutions on the market today.
